In April, the team at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Columbus Airport hosted WPC and treated us to a delicious dinner and desserts. Our spotlight speaker, Christy Townsend with The Paper Vow showed us unique samples and offered coupons for her stationary services.

Our guest speaker from April, Sarah Cook, is a Business Success Strategist for Creative Entrepreneurs. She supports creatives and coaches her clients in achieving consistent and growing income through effective marketing, clientele relationship building and visibility. Her ultimate goal is to help entrepreneurs see that their business can financially and emotionally support them 150% in any dream or desire they have for their personal and professional lives.

How to make consistent income

  • You have to meet your clients
  • Build your audience and brand
  • Become the standout, go-to person
  • Stay on track with a simple time management strategy
  • Get out there - network, create your own networking opportunities if need be
  • Market like a boss...and cheap
  • Have a public profile
  1. Include what you do in your description
  2. Your brand and aesthetic mus run throughout your personal and business pages
  3. When you are VISIBLE, people can find and refer you
  • You must build TRUST and ENGAGEMENT

Trust

  • Determine 6 themes about you and create your posting content calendar based on those themes
  • You don't want to be a person completely separate from your business
  • Create a positive connection to your name and what you do

Engagement

  • It's your job to build interaction with your audience
  • Never say "message me" in a post
  • ELEVATE your brand

Follow up

  • Pick 2 or 3 days for follow up
  • Set a short amount of time aside
  • Schedule engagement posts around this

This month, our meeting was held at the Marriott Courtyard West where we were treated to appetizers and beverages. Our spotlight speaker, Janel Northington with Mobile Mommies, also gave us some M&Ms (who doesn't love M&Ms?)!

Our featured speaker this month was Jeannine Vegh. She is an Independent Marriage & Family Therapist, licensed in the state of Ohio to practice psychotherapy. Jeannine spoke to us about the 7 principles for making a relationship work from the Gottman Institute. 

What can you do to make a relationship work?

1) Build love maps

  • Maintain awareness of your partner's world

2) Share fondness and admiration

  • Make deposits into the Emotional Bank Account

3) Turn towards instead of away

  • Accept bids for emotional connection

4) The positive perspective

  • A positive perspective occurs when the friendship of your marriage is strong

5) Manage conflict

  • Accept influence from your partner: be open to compromise
  • Discuss your problems: take turns listening to one another about perpetual issues
  • Practice self-soothing: keep yourself calm

6) Make life dreams come true

  • Find ways to support each other's life goals and dreams

7) Create shared meaning

  • Build a shared sense of purpose.  What is your mission and legacy? 

For more information, visit Gottman.com where you can explore videos, books or find out about couple's workshops around the country. There is also a Gottman Referral Network on the website to find local therapists, as well as a free app called Gottman Card Deck. All the couples cards that were displayed on the table are on this app.
