After ONE networking event, I booked three new clients and have continued to book new clients at each subsequent event! 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!

📬 When to send marketing emails to your list?⁠

📬 How often should you be emailing them?⁠

📬 What’s the strategy that results in sales?⁠

"Kristina is knowledgeable, experienced and genuinely interested in understanding and supporting small business owners to help them develop and market their businesses efficiently & effectively. I really appreciated her enthusiasm and looked forward to our calls. She has gifts of encouragement, listening and communication and I felt like she truly believed in me and what I had to offer. I highly recommend her and her services!" -Robin, Harmony Yoga & Wellness⁠

Meet Kristina!⁠

Kristina Kury has over 10+ years in marketing. She made the leap to launch Sprout Creative as she realized the passion in small business owners was being stunted by the lack of time, understanding and commitment to their business's marketing needs. Their expertise lies in their business and supporting that dream. Marketing is overwhelming, laborious and confusing. She decided it was time to jump in with them and help build a cohesive marketing plan to get them back to making their dreams shine so they can affect positive change.⁠

This may sound silly. ⁠

Mentally preparing for "normal life" — what are you even talking about, Sara?!⁠

But, the truth is, if you've been quarantining for the last year, you might be surprised at your reaction to putting yourself back out there.⁠

Truth 👉 People don't know how — or when — to leave. They're staying longer than they want or they want to stay much longer than anticipated.⁠

Prep⚡ Buffer time after events and give yourself some room to be late to the next thing.⁠

Truth 👉 Getting together in-person can be emotionally exhausting for introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts⁠.⁠

Prep⚡ Give yourself ample recovery time afterward so you can recharge your batteries. And, give yourself grace; it's ok to be a little extra tired.⁠

Truth 👉 Emotions — good and bad — are running high.⁠

Prep⚡ Schedule some quiet time before and after events. ⁠

Summation 👉 Go easy on yourself. We're all excited to resume "normal" life, but that doesn't mean that unexpected emotions won't arise before, during, or after events. ⁠

Give yourself grace as we navigate these changes!⁠

What are some unexpected feelings that have come up for you as we begin to see people in person? 👇

Handling objections as a business owner. Does that sounds scary, overwhelming, frustrating, and maybe impossible to anyone else out there?⁠

As a business owner, you will inevitably run into objections along the way.⁠

Sometimes, they will appear in the form of questions — or lack of sales — and, sometimes they will be unexpected.⁠

We use these simple steps to remove the objections — and sometimes even convert sales!⁠

⚡ Neutralize the discussion. Start by saying something along the lines of, “thank you for bringing this to my attention.” Once you’ve brought the emotional reaction back to zero, it’s much easier to move forward with eliminating the objection.⁠

⚡ Be direct, unattached, and concise. Use language that is not emotionally charged when acknowledging the objection.⁠

⚡ Take the high road. Regardless of whether or not their objection is legitimate in your eyes, you cannot remove an objection by telling someone that they are incorrect in feeling the way that they do.⁠

⚡ Refer them to the proper person to remedy the objection. If the objection is a public review, requesting that the person reaches out to your email address — or the email address of your customer service equivalent — goes a long way. It shows everyone reading the review or overhearing the objection in some capacity that you care and that you’re taking it seriously. It also indicates to the person raising the objection that you’ve heard them and that you’re committed to fixing the problem.⁠

Shout out to @csecoaching and @sproutcreativela for imparting some of this knowledge to me and always encouraging me to handle objections head-on, rather than hiding from them. 🙌⁠

We can’t always avoid objections, but handling them in a professional, courteous manner goes a long way — and can even convert a sale if handled properly!⁠

What are some of your tips for handling objections? 👇

Staying organized and motivated while working from home is possible. After a year where the majority of the population seems to be still working from home, it's a good time to refresh some of your routines and fight burn-out.⁠

Sasha, CEO of @Creations_by_Sasha, co-host of @SwirlAndSipPodcast and District Bliss team member, shares how she stays motivated while working from home and building an empire!⁠

It’s easy to lack motivation, get sidetracked, or even to know when to stop when you have no set start or end time and are surrounded by a variety of other chores demanding your attention.⁠

💫 Keep your space organized. There is nothing more stressful or hindering your work than a cluttered workspace. Clean out your space to hold the minimum of everything you need in order to maximize your personal productivity. ⁠

💫 Structure your hours. One of the biggest challenges of working from home is knowing when to start and when to stop. Unlike going to an office your days aren’t structured for you so you need to give yourself your own structure. Give yourself a designated work time in the morning and afternoon that best fits your schedule and stick to it. It will also help you relax stress-free knowing that you’ve completed your designated hours for the day.⁠

💫 Take breaks. Schedule breaks into your day. This also gives you something to work toward.⁠

💫 Interact with others. Working from home has the potential to be a little isolated as you lack the face-to-face interaction that most other employees get to experience. Make an effort to get lunch with someone during your workday or ask another friend with a similar job to meet you at a coffee shop for the afternoon. If it’s hard to incorporate socializing time during your day, make plans for the weekend with friends or family so you have something you know you’re looking forward to.⁠

Do you need accountability?⁠

I'm here to tell you that you're not alone! Entrepreneurs and solopreneurs often miss the accountability of working for someone else when they venture into owning a business.⁠

Personally, I just like to feel like I'm not alone while I'm working from home. ⁠

I crave human connection, even if it's over the internet.⁠

That's why I love virtual co-working. Have you tried it? What are your thoughts? 👇
