I am not sure if I am alone with thinking this was one of the toughest summers ever to happen. It started with my father having to get surgery to have his gallbladder removed. It should have been a simple procedure but there were a few complications and he is still recovering from a surgery that took place in June. It’s a blessing that he is finally healing and will be coming home soon, but when it rains it pours.
While coping with a sick loved one, I have been helping several close friends that have been dealing with some tough times, I have been struggling with my health, and my hard drive died on my computer. It’s been an overwhelming summer but as they say, you have to deal with the bad to get to the good.
At the start of the summer, Jessica (confetti queen behind The Confetti Bar) and Maddie (stylist Babe-o-saurs Rex of Oh My Gemini) invited myself and a few of my favorite female entrepreneurs to a business brunch. It was this infamous brunch where they revealed a top secret project. You know if The Confetti Bar and Oh My Gemini are cooking up something it is going to be whimsical and perfect! They unleashed the epic-ness that is Monarch Workshop. Monarch Workshop is a two day workshop for the girl that wants to thrive, fly, and conquer. When I was asked to be the social media vixen for a workshop based on helping people pursue their dreams, I couldn’t say YES fast enough.
I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Monarch was presented to me at the start of the summer before the shit hit the fan in my life. Working on this project with some of my dearest peeps has been the cat’s meow! It has kept my heart aflutter and I am so honored to be a part of something so magical. Here are some of the reasons why I am proud member of Monarch Workshop’s dream team…
Monarch Workshop runs on awesome! The free spirited workshop will always be held in locations that will allow the workshop to spread its fabulous wings. The first ever Monarch Workshop will be held at my home away from home, B:Hive Bridgeport. I have gushed about B:Hive before and I will do it another million times. This is our first stop to bringing together a world of dreamers.
There is nothing more powerful than being around women who are ready to take on the world. Monarch is all about supporting each other, giving that extra push, unleashing your inner creativity, and believing in yourself. Everyone has a completely different timeline and way of achieving the life they want. Monarch BELIEVES in your timeline and throws some glitter on it. Let Monarch bedazzle you! Who doesn’t want to be bedazzled?!
Do it for the swag! Monarch Workshop provides the food, motivational speakers, tutorials, spiritual healing, swag, crafting, and the champagne! Everything will be provided for you to elevate your life. All you have to do is show up and bring your dreams. Monarch workshop is a two day cocoon fest. The idea is for you to leave a monarch. It will promote positive thinking, self-reflecting, and creative activity. The workshop is a pick me up on steroids.
I am beyond thankful for having the opportunity to be a part of something so beneficial and necessary to the well being of many. It is my calling and duty to help others pursue their dreams. I believe that asking for help is part of the journey to success. You can try to become amazing on your own but it’s so much more fun to achieve it with a kick-ass posse. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to Jessica and Maddie for inviting me to be a part of their journey. I’m ready to rock out with you and take over the world!
I am super jazzed about meeting a lot of you at the first Monarch Workshop. If you’re still interested in going…HURRY and register. Registration closes this coming Monday. The cost of the workshop is $95 for the WHOLE weekend. You read right, 95 bucks! In most places $95 can’t even buy you a month’s worth of yoga. Invest in yourself, invest in your dreams because you’re so very dreamy!
My metamorphosis started in June, I am ready to be a Monarch. Let us all burst out of our cocoons and take flight. Who is ready to spread their wings?
Stay sexy Gotham!
P.S. The entire time I was writing this post I had this jam stuck in my head. Do you remember this song?
