"Blogger is The New Entrepreneur" Luncheon Recap

I had the complete honor and pleasure to attend Celebrity Blogger:  Talking with Tami for a Bloggers Luncheon at Strip Restaurant at Atlantic Station entitled: "Blogger is The New Entrepreneur"

Celebrity Blogger: Talking with Tami (she's such a GEM) 

Tami shared a lot with the group on the how to's, what not's and freely gave info on her blogging background.

Tami sharing the knowledge 

Tami also gave insight on how to build and have a successful blog. Being that Tami is the best in the blogging business I was very estatic to be among the group of bloggers; some I knew and some I met for the 1st time.

My BFF's (Blog Fab Fashionista's) -  Back to Front: Ros of  Chic Boutique Tour , Nikka of Oh! Nikka, Yours Truly, Tia of If I were a Brit Girl , Dea of Pretty Girls Rock Dresses, Kerrie of Virtuous Styls, Tami of  Talking with Tami, Keren of Two Stylish Kays

Finally met my Twitter Friend and Blog Buddy: Bobbie of It's Bobbies World

Got a chance to meet the Lovely Mimi of  Lipgloss and Binky

Another BFF: Diary of a Spoiled Diva

Rosalynn Founder of  Chic Boutique Tour 
I took plenty of notes and the ones that stood out the most for me are:

* Own your own domain
* All your branding needs to be the same
* You represent your brand
* Always have your business cards on hand; Be Ready
* Create a contract when working with brands; protect yourself
* Get a REAL camera 
* People are visual... Use pictures when blogging
* Remember influential ppl are watching you on social media outlets; your words can help or harm you.
*Don't get discouraged about comments and hits. Just because they are not commenting don't mean they aren't reading 

Tami has truly inspired and motivated me to keep moving forward and I am currently working on putting some of the info that was shared into ACTION!!!!

Yours Truly... As you can see Tami & I both adore the color: PINK!

Oh, and the food at strip was DELISH!
The Menu consist on the following:

Customize Menu just for the luncheon

I indulged in: 

Mixed Field Greens Salad
Pepper crusted Flat iron Steak (cooked to PERFECTION)
Topped with a Cheesecake for Dessert!

Tami mention that she would like to host a blogger luncheon monthly and I'm already looking forward to the next!
