VIP INtensive Workshop // Recap

The first week in February of 2017, I headed down to the DC area for the VIPINtensive hosted by Reina Pomeroy and Tonya Dalton

I learned about this workshop from my good friend Kinsey from She Creates Business (you know, that one time I was on a podcast) ;-) She had an episode where she talked about different workshops/conferences that were coming up and as soon as she mentioned this one, I instantly grabbed my computer to look it up because it sounded so interesting to me. 

I ended up emailing with Reina (from Reina & Co) to find out if this might be a good option for me based on my plans for 2017 (Launching After some back and forth and great questions by Reina, I decided that this would really be a great opportunity for me and since it was only a few hours away, it was even better that I could drive down for the 2 day intensive. 

I didn't really know what to expect other than a couple of days of great learning and being challenged, and I must say all of my piddly little expectations were blown out of the water. Not only did I get to meet and network with some other amazing women who have big dreams and plans for their own businesses but I got time to really sit and think strategically about what I wanted to do with my businesses in order to grow them into something that would be really fulfilling within my life. 

What I loved most about the workshop, was that it wasn't just sitting and listening to people talk on specific subjects. I do think there is absolute value in that, but having the ability to walk through the education and then work things out on paper with instant feedback was super valuable. We all had the opportunity to share ideas, stories and potential strategies with each other while each working on our own individual goals/objectives. Instead of just waiting to get home to start implementing things on our own, we had the opportunity to actually begin right then and there when the ideas were happening and inspiration was hitting us. I really liked this format and thought it worked really well for all of us there attending. 

There is so much more I could say about this workshop/intensive, but this blog post would end up being WAY too long so for now I will leave you with some images from the two days. I was honored to take some behind the scenes shots and some head shots of Reina and Tonya so that the memories from these two days will be documented and remembered for all of us who attended! 

The Reset Workshop // Recap

Reset Workshop Recap

When Meredith initially asked me if I'd be interested in being a part of the Reset Workshop she was hosting, I was over the moon excited, honored and humbled. 

I have such a passion for educating, speaking and blogging and Meredith picked up on all of that and found a perfect opportunity that would not only benefit her and her attendees, but also me and my passions and goals. Total win-win!

Meredith owns and operates Meredith Ryncarz Photography out of Newport News, VA. Even though the drive from NJ to VA is lengthy, it was nothing that was too overwhelming for me. Seven hours of coastal driving and podcast listening? Sign me up! 

The Reset Workshop was specifically created for creative business owners (mostly in the wedding industry) interested in pressing the reset button at the beginning of 2017. For those specifically looking for some intentional strategies to really make the most of the momentum a lot of us feel at the beginning of a new year. 

Along with Meredith and her husband Jason, and Luke and Ashley of Luke & Ashley Photography, we had a fantastic and full day of education, partnering and laughing at The Historic Post Office in Hampton, VA. 

Meredith spoke on how we can all achive the creative mindset by seeing people as people, Jason spoke on all things workflow, I spoke on blogging for your ideal client and Luke and Ashley rounded up the day by speaking on how to overcome mediocre social media. 

We also did a venue tour of The Historic Post Office and I took some pictures of their amazingly gorgeous bridal suite! Such a dream to shoot in! 

And last but not least, some of the photos that Luke took of me while I was speaking! I am so thankful he snapped some images while I was talking!
