With 30+ in person and virtual events hosted, we’ve learned a few lessons along the way about ways to sell tickets, day-of tips to keep things running smooth, and key planning methods.


Last year we had monthly live, in-person events lined up in 2 cities, and had to cancel them alllll because, well 2020, she was a wild one. But we were able to use a lot of the same lessons and easily pivot to hosting online events. Which honestly has been so amazing because we’re able to connect with women from all over, from Cali to Canada to the UK, and everywhere in between, far and wide! While we have some exciting plans in the works for 2021 to connect IRL once again, we’ve loved being able to share our virtual corner of the web with you all!


So today, we’re breaking down lessons we’ve learned the last few years, when planning, promoting & hosting an event. Whether a virtual event or in-person, you’ll want to grab your pen & paper and take some notes
