After ONE networking event, I booked $30K in new clientele! Because District Bliss makes the events so warm, engaging and welcoming, that awkward networking ice is broken right away and business owners can immediately connect with perfect-match, top paying, high integrity, fun customers. You won't find this at other events. With the top-tier sponsoring opportunity, we are truly thrilled and have found a comfortable, monetizing networking hub — couldn't be happier!

What does business as “usual” look like for District Bliss?

What does business as “usual” look like for District Bliss?

THE BIG “WHY”
I’m sure you’ve noticed that we’ve been offering our online courses, curated networking events, workshops for free over the last few months.

That was business as unusual for us.

Because, as a value-centered business, our mission is to support the community. And, it’s no secret that 2020 has been a struggle for many of us entrepreneurs. Supporting you all was the top priority. Unfortunately, doing so for free cannot last forever. Womp womp.

Hi, friends — Sara here! In life, you will meet all kinds of people. Some who are there to support and elevate you. That's how I've built the District Bliss Community. ⁠We strive to be inclusive.⁠

Supporting each other has never been more important. Making sure that your company is sending the right messages to properly represent your values, mission, and brand is critical.⁠

Being part of several networking organizations and communities — and committing to continuing to show up — is so important for your business.⁠

There are tons of communities and organizations that I love, but here are a few that you should look into (apologies if I'm forgetting anyone): @six_degrees_society @fostrcollaborative @findyour_lighthouse @csecoaching @risingtidesociety @wearetiderisers @feministwynn to name a few.⁠ I've also heard some good things about local chambers 💪⁠

What are your favorite communities and organizations for networking?⁠ lmk in the comments so we can check 'em out! 👇⁠

What's your favorite type of gift to give or receive? I love to put together personal gifts that are special and meaningful.⁠

Sometimes I buy or make gifts months in advance because inspiration hits me and then I squirrel them away until a gift-giving event.⁠

I just love it!⁠

Supporting each other has never been more important. Making sure that your company is sending the right messages to properly represent your values, mission, and brand is critical.⁠

Monday, @creations_by_sasha is hosting Incorporate Authentic Activism into Your Brand ⁠

Pushing activism further during the biggest civil rights movement in history when silence is no longer an option ⁠

We're living through the biggest civil rights movement in history and staying silent is no longer an option.⁠

This workshop will give you the tools you need to incorporate authentic activism into your brand in a way that makes sense for you.⁠

In this workshop, you will...⁠
- Move from Actress to Accomplice⁠
- Learn how to NOT show performative allyship⁠
- create an inclusive space in your brand⁠
- Gain long-term actions to create change through your brand⁠

Meet your workshop leader⁠
Sasha, the boss lady behind Creations By Sasha and co-host of The Swirl and Sip Podcast, likes to think of herself as a modern woman and spends her time talking about how she manages all the things while being a wife, boy-mom, and business owner. ⁠

As a lifestyle brand, podcaster, and speaker, Sasha keeps it real talking all things mom-life, wife-life and womanhood while filling her online shop with mugs, wine glasses, apparel, printables and more, created for the modern woman who's building their own empire, hustling at a 9-5, or raising up little ones to conquer the world!

@elevenlystudioco went through my free accessibility & inclusivity course through @districtblissevents and this is what she came away with. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This workshop is filled with eye opening information on ways that I, as a business owner, can be more inclusive and accessible, especially for people with disabilities. Some of the actionable steps they educate on are as simple as capitalizing the first letter of each word in a hashtag so screen readers can read it correctly. This one little change can make someone else feel welcomed!! #SoImportant. The things I’ve learned in this workshop will impact how I design websites and social media content for myself and clients. Again, I highly suggest this workshop as the first step to being more inclusive and accessible!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
REAL TALK:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Testimonials are the best thing ever. I love hearing from people about what they've learned from me. I truly appreciate it because it helps me make changes if there's something that's not quite right. and I can improve and keep giving you AMAZING content. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BTW... did you hear that I'm putting out a course "Accessibility Made Easy" at the end of this month? I'm totally excited about it! Link in @mabely_q’s bio

In your business, it's important to get out there. That's why you should belong to several communities.⁠

I belong to six organizations. Some are free, some are paid for. All are awesome and I am part of them for very different reasons.⁠

When you're evaluating your business strategy, really consider your return on investment and what the benefits of various communities are. ⁠
