BRITNEY'S EXPERIENCE - BALI 2017 and TULUM 2017
WHAT TOP 3 THINGS DID YOU LEARN WHILE ON THE RETREAT?
The top three things I learned while on the Bali retreat was determining what my brand is, mastering how to use my DSLR camera without shooting in automatic, and how to use Instagram and Instagram stories to drive traffic to my blog.
HOW DID YOUR LIFE CHANGE AFTER THE RETREAT?
After the retreat I knew that I had a tone of homework to do once I returned home. I knew that if I wanted to turn Pretty Little Hangers into a full-time business and brand I had to devote all of my time and energy into creating amazing content that my followers would love, share and most importantly take something away from reading one of my blog posts. I think my perspective on blogging changed and I went from thinking everything had to be curated to perfection to being more instantaneous to social media posts.
WHICH WORKSHOP WAS YOUR FAV AND WHY?
My favorite workshop was Carly Rudd’s photography/ branding workshop. Carly really helped me narrow down what my brand is and who my target audience is for Pretty Little Hangers. She worked in PR before becoming a full-time photographer so I thought that it was interesting to get an insiders perspective on why having a brand is so important especially when agencies match you with other brands and products.
TELL US ABOUT THE PHOTOSHOOTS AND CONTENT THAT WAS CERATED WHILE ON THE RETREAT!
Creating content during the Bali retreat was one of my favorite parts of the trip. We travelled to more than 5 areas in Bali to shoot content and even shot at a few restricted locations that I otherwise would not have had the opportunity to shoot at if it wasn’t for the Pangea Dreams retreat. Having the opportunity to travel and do something that I love was a dream. Having the founder, Tracy around with her amazing energy and work ethic founder, Tracy and her amazing energy
HOW DID IT FEEL TO BE SURROUNDED BY OTHER LIKEMINDED WOMEN? HOW DID THAT MOTIVATE YOU?
Being surrounded by other bloggers who understand that blogging is a business and take it just as seriously as I do was a breathe of fresh air. If I had a dollar for every time someone asks me what I do, what blogging is and how I make money I would hop on a plane and travel the world LOL! All of the girls on the retreat motivated me to work harder and stay focused. Having the ability to brainstorm and bounce ideas off of one another and share our blogging tips and tricks was also a huge bonus- thanks ladies.
