Hand up if, when COVID hit, all your events, plans, posts, even some goals for 2020 went out the window? Yeah, girl. SAME. So…What do we do?!
We quickly thought: hey, wouldn’t a virtual event be amazing? We could still have the bubbly and connection, but be able to connect with so many more ladies across the country (and as it turns out, the globe)... so that’s precisely what we did!
