February Recap: From Basic to Boss Blogger

Growing a business isn’t easy, and we constantly applaud all of our members for taking the leap to hit publish on each and every blog post they create. No matter where you are in your blogging career, having a coach to guide you can be instrumental to your success in business. This month, we were lucky enough to partner with LaShanta Green, a multi-hyphenate entrepreneur who has made a career through coaching brands and businesses. LaShanta took us through her exciting workshop, “Going & Growing From Basic to Boss Blogger.”

We gathered at Latitude Med Center, a stunning luxury high rise apartment building in the Texas Medical Center. Of its many amenities, the 35-floor Latitude Med Center features a sophisticated meeting space called the Sky Club. We gathered in a mastermind group of 12 budding bloggers at different areas in their career and got to work!

After enjoying refreshments and taking in the sweeping views of downtown in the Sky Club, our guests opened up their new workbooks and a lively discussion began. LaShanta had us openly discuss her tried and true “5 Strategic Steps for Purposeful Planning.”

We opened up about our challenges working in such a competitive industry, and we identified the strengths that set us apart. When defining our milestones, we all promised to keep each other accountable. The energy and commitment in the room was palpable; thanks to LaShanta’s guidance, we had a whole workbook of activities to help us define our action plan.  We can’t rant and rave all day, but let’s hear it from our members:

“I had such a great time at the blogger union meetup. It was so helpful. Lashanta’s knowledge of building a business was insightful as well. My key takeaway was learning how to balance blogging and personal life. The Latitude med center where it was held was beautiful, the perfect Instagram worthy spot.” – Jennifer Metzler, The Fashionable Maven

“I am so thankful that Lashanta was able to lead this workshop and provide resources that are easily applicable! Our discussion sparked a lot of self-reflection and I was reminded of how important it is to schedule adequate time to invest in my work. You wouldn’t skip a meeting with a client, so why should you skip a meeting with yourself? I felt so encouraged and refreshed. Collaborating and learning with other creative women is always so inspiring. – Courtney Amize, Doing Twenty Something

“LaShanta’s workshop gave me a hands-on crash course in purpose, helping me recognize and face the obstacles holding me back from my goals. It was so comforting to sit down with other strong, goal-oriented women and share our missions and brand values. I left feeling a sense of clarity and inspiration.” – Jillian Goltzman, Cup of Charisma

“LaShanta Green was a great thought leader. She did a great job in helping push each of us out of our comfort zone.” – Ar’Sheill Monsanto, Ar You Serious


The event was so rewarding and a perfect way to kick off our 2019 calendar. Thank you to everyone who came out to learn with us!
