Yesterday afternoon I held my Annual Girls Night In/Summer Edition and boy did we have a GREAT time! If you are a new reader or just not familiar with the event, I have done Girls Night Ins for over 12 years now and I find them extremely rewarding. I love to fellowship and get women from all walks of life together in an intimate setting. We talk about our careers, love, relationships whatever subject comes up and then we all get to learn something new.
Disclaimer: Before we got started with the event, there was Covid 19 rules we had to abide by, temperature checks were done, masks were worn, hand sanitizer was on board, and the space has a medical-grade Carbon-Filter Air Purifier installed.
Most of the women are entrepreneurs as well, so it’s good to connect with others that may need someone’s service later on. The information shared with each other yesterday was truly appreciated and I think it was great synergy with the ladies. We are definitely better together than apart. The event was held at INDIEHOUSE Fragrance Bar, a new hip gathering spot in Alpharetta, Ga. The ladies got to learn about perfume and make their own personalized bottles. They were very impressed with their final choices. Check out all the photos inside, it was a lovely affair! Thanks to all my sponsors and to Carrie the owner of INDIEHOUSE, we all had a blast!
