“Meet the New Media” Forum

What a great event this is! I am so glad I stumbled upon this event! It will give me the opportunity to make new contacts, catch up with old contacts and learn some new techniques that I can institute into my social media platforms, as well as traditional forms of media.  It’s all about what the trends are, what people want to read about online and visual perspectives.   I got to meet Rebecca Antonelli of TrianglePR, Kitty Kinnin of River 100.7, Chuck Hester of  iContact, Ria Scureman and others.  It was great,Thanks.  Looking forward to the next one, July 24th @ Sheraton Imperial, 10am-12pm.

Women Helping Women Business Expo Huge Success!

What a fantastic business expo! The Shriner’s Club of Wake County was a beautiful place to have such an elegant oriented Expo!  The combination of the business vendors  and a huge raffle with wine, cheese, beer, vegetable and fruit hors d’eurves was the best ever! There were massages being given, both neck/back and feet, Cosmetic vendors, nutritional food vendors, Eco friendly cleaning supplies, purses, travel consultants, financial services, insurance services, jewelry, you name it, just about every thing a woman would be interested in getting more information on or buying something, was there!
It was a great cause to send the proceeds to The Women’s Center of Wake County.  (
I was first hand to see that it looked very relaxing for the attendees as well as the vendors, I being one of the vendors!  I had a lot  of visitors to my table, CBJ Promotional Avenues!  I am now working on putting together my online newsletter and my website to feature my event planning services, promotional products and marketing collateral services!  Thanks for your support for those that visited me!
I look forward to helping the ladies at Coffee and Contacts Networking group plan for next years Expo!  Thanks for all those who helped plan the event, you all did wonderful!
