B.L.I.S.S. !

This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a Women's Luncheon that was hosted by B.L.I.S.S. (Black Ladies Inspired by Sisterhood and Success!). This was the first of (hopefully) many events and seminars. I was happy to be a part of it.

It was also my second time as a vendor. I did not get many sales, but, I did get alot of compliments on my work and an opportunity to network and pass out my business cards. I also got experience of packing my items, taking them to the venue, setting up my display and communicating with prospective customers.

Needless to say . . . I worked hard preparing for the luncheon and had lots hopes that I would make sales and great connections. I did not get the sales but I did get the connections. I just dont understand how we as women, it doesnt matter the color, do not support eachother. The attendance was very low and those who were invited but did not attend missed very valuable information. (a view of my vendor's booth at the BLISS Luncheon).

I am also having a Pre-Holiday Shopping Event & Mixer on November 19th. There will be several venders there with various items, handmade greeting cards, Avon, Cookie Lee, Food, Desserts, and more. . . I will post pics and a brief opinion afterwards.

Im working on my people skills. I am very shy and reserved. I need to work on smiling, talking and sharing. These Holiday events will give me an opportunity to brush up on my skills.

Hope you are having a great day! It is freezing cold in Los Angeles. . . I gotta go get a cup of tea! Smooches!
