The day is finally here!!! We had to overcome some obstacles to get this year's retreat underway, but having all of these incredible leaders together under one roof is such a joy! I'm so grateful for all of the amazing people who helped me pull this off, to @honeybook for being the sweetest and most hospitable host, and for all of the leaders who moved mountains to join us in person and who are tuning in live from home! @risingtidesociety there is no community like you and I'm so proud to be a part of what we are building ❀️#rtsretreat #risingtidesoiety #tuesdaystogethertampa #tuesdaystogetherstpete

Peace out West Coast! Leaving San Francisco with such a full heart and a few new friends, I am feeling so grateful for the opportunity to attend the #rtsretreat the past few days. This definitely won't be my last time in this amazing city! ✌🏼#destineestarktravels

I fully understand why everyone at @honeybook are always so happy. They have swings in the office! Can I please live here??? πŸ€“Spending the next couple days learning and growing with all the amazing @risingtidesociety leaders. In a couple hours, I will be speaking and sharing my passion for business and what keeps me organized and "on top of it all". Love my community! Follow sneak peeks on stories and snappy chat! πŸ’› #rtsretreat #rtsleaders #communityovercompetition πŸ“· @jameswitty @jessfairchild

Having extreme FOMO back here in Indy as all my fellow @risingtidesociety leaders are in San Fran for the leaders retreat! Wishing I was at the @honeybook headquarters with good friends but thankful for technology and the ability to join in digitally from afar! Thanks @nataliefranke and team for all of your hard work!! Can't wait to grow and learn today! #rtsretreat

I'm going to miss your beauty and wonderful people, San Fran, but I can't wait to snuggle with my sweet family. ❀#rtsretreat @honeybook @risingtidesociety

Last March I got to meet up with creative leaders from all over the country (and world!) in Charleston for the first Rising Tide Society Leaders retreat. And today I am packing my bags for San Francisco to do all over again! Tomorrow morning I'll be hopping on a plane to Cali to see all these wonderful creatives again that are making big waves in the creative small business community!! I'm so excited to catch up with old friends and make so many new ones! Can't wait!! #rtsretreat @risingtidesociety

Even though I'm seriously bummed that I couldn't make this year's @risingtidesociety leader's retreat @honeybook, I am so glad that I was able to spend my morning building a stronger community here in Charleston!

This morning's super casual @tuesdaystogethercharleston meeting was all about making new friends and was exactly what I needed after a week of being sick. I'm so looking forward to seeing you all again next month!

We have gotten a crazy amount of rain the past few days. It usually causes us problems and pushes my buttons, but today I'm going to put that aside and be thankful.... Tristan got to spend time with the best mom in the world just down the road and I got a new hairdo at the most amazing salon! (Yes, I still think they are awesome even when I wanted to cuss while getting my eyebrows waxed) πŸ˜‚

AND I'm thankful to technology that I even got to live-stream the @risingtidesociety #rtsretreat at @honeybook from under the dryer! I joined their fabulous team in 2016 as a #TuesdaysTogether leader and have been met with nothing but support! I was so bummed about missing the retreat, especially since they sent a GIFT as my invite πŸ˜³πŸ™ŒπŸ» BUT live technology rocks πŸŽ‰πŸ˜

When you're at tech startup @honeybook in #sanfrancisco and they've styled the shelves exactly how you would have. #pleasantsurprise #vintage #vintagefinds #rtsretreat
We've got vintage wooden spools, books and bottles at @laurelgroveshop and also cute little succulents that pair perfectly and add some green! πŸ’š

Hands down my favorite part of what I do is discovering new places, experiences and faces that become a special part of my life. 🌎 #tbt to adventures with new friends on the streets of San Francisco. Can't wait until my next visit. @honeybook @risingtidesociety #kismisink

@risingtidesociety πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»Because of Tiders like you, we raised over $60,000 for @pencilsofpromise!! We know you've already heard the happy news, but guys, this is INCREDIBLE! We couldn't have done it without you. Thank you to everyone who participated in #TheRiseSummit, and in our Instagram challenge these past few days! If you had the chance to tune in to the summit, we'd love to know who your favorite speaker was and what's the most valuable thing you learned!

#Indulge AND #DoGood. Why not? #ONEHOPE Wine is a world-class vineyard in Napa Valley that makes a positive impact on the world every day. And their #champagne is delicious. Who could ask for more?

I love this bar napkin! Gets the message across perfectly. If you are interested in custom branded napkins, we can make those for your wedding or event. They're usually not too expensive, especially if you just do one color of ink.

Currently sitting on my couch in my pajamas with a few drops left of cold coffee in my cup from the morning (I don't think I'm going to do another microwave run. I've already done two!). I still need to eat breakfast and hop in the shower, but I thought I might just get some more work done on my talk for #TuesdaysTogetherTemecula next week!

Crafting a discussion with a bunch of people I respect in my local industry can be kind of scary, but this little reminder from Glennon Doyle Melton via @jennakutcher is bringing me back to the #RTSretreat in San Francisco this past January. One of my major takeaways:
β€’
"You don't have to have it all figured out to help." Pretty sure this piece of wisdom started with a midnight chat with @laurencarnes and @austynelizabeth and then echoed through the entire retreat.
β€’
So with that, I'm putting off my nerves about what I'm "not an expert in" and simply sharing my story, my mistakes, and all the wisdom I've learned from others that I think my local RTS friends might enjoy hearing too! And then, I'm going to open it up to hear from everyone else, because hey, no one has it all figured out, but we definitely have experiences to share. Sometimes that's all you need to help a friend out. ☺️

Why I lead my local #tuesdaystogether and why it fuels my soul! I love this community and I absolutely loved attending the #rtsretreat for the leaders in San Francisco at the Honeybook headquarters. It was truly an honor to sit in a room full of wonderful and talented creatives and simply share that same want and need in life. Here's my SECRET....before the Rising Tide, I was at my end...I was SO ready to giveup and just didn't know if I could find my strength to continue doing something I loved! So much work and so much time went into my business and I honestly just didn't know if I was making enough to support my family. The need to march through the darkness together and really help lift each other up was something I was desperate for. Thank you Rising Tide Society and @nataliefranke for making this a possibility. And not only did the Rising Tide change my life, my work, and my relationships with creatives....but I was honored with speaking at the retreat as well!! Thank you @laurenlcarnes for believing in my words so much that you plucked my name out of a crowd of so many talents to speak on our retreat. I'm so happy to have RTS in my life!

Spent my morning sipping coffee, listening to oldies country, updating the website, and thinking back on one of the most incredible trips I've ever taken! The #rtsretreat in Charleston a year ago was a life changing experience! I met so many sweet creatives, explored a beautiful city, and learned more about what it takes to be a TuesdaysTogether leader! πŸ“·: @a.wellinghurstphotography

After a weekend away speaking at Thrive Creative Conference it's back to logo sketches, print collateral concepts, and brand development calls with the best clients in the world! No day of my small business journey looks the same, and I'm guessing yours don't either. πŸ˜‰ One thing being an entrepreneur has taught me from Day One is that being flexible is one of your greatness assets. If we can adapt, roll with the punches, and find creative solutions even when we weren't expecting to, we can often walk out of challenges victorious. Just a little reminder for you to carry into your workweek, friend! You got this. 😘 | photo @hopetaylorphotography from the #rtsleadersretreat in January

It seems like I just got back from the amazing #RTSRetreat in San Francisco and it's been a jam-packed month of prepping, planning and getting geared up for all the amazing 2017 weddings that are coming up! I definitely miss the beautiful painted ladies, delicious tacos and great wine! Go to the blog today to check out a snapshot of our trip, my typical obsessive fan-girling of @bethannearthur and my brand new obsessive fan-girling of another photographer!! Who could it be?!? Is it you reading this right now?? Probably not...but maybe! β €

Oh friends! It's time for a celebration! One of my dear dear friends @magnoliaandgraceevents launched her new site and new business yesterday since her move to a new city! For yearsss Michelle has been planning drop dead GORGEOUS events and yesterday she got to make some of her wildest dreams come true launching magnolia and grace events. While she's located in Raleigh, she's doing events all the way up the east coast and beyond!
.
Aside from her gorgeous work and incredible talents, Michelle is one of the kindest people I've ever met with a heart made of pure gold. We instantly connected when meeting at the #rtsretreat last year and have stayed connected ever since through the ups and downs of running a business. And if there's one thing I've realized it's that Michelle goes into every endevour with her whole heart. And that's why I know that she's going to have the luckiest clients in the world- because she's going to put her soul into every moment she creates for them.
.
Join me in raising a glass for this dear friend of mine who spreads love and kindness everywhere she goes. And go check out her feed @magnoliaandgraceevents and her new site! It's so dreamy!!

It's 5:30 AM in Chicago and by the time I get home I will have been up for over 24 hours straight but I'm still celebrating! Why? Because despite the crazy schedule I've had an incredible few weeks!!
1. 2 weeks ago was the @risingtidesociety leaders retreat in San Francisco and to sum it up in two words...life changing! #rtsretreat
2. I'm currently flying home from #wppi2017 where I got to spend time with some of my favorite @honeybook friends in our #makewaveswppi booth.
3. I am so excited to announce I will be a mentor at the @dpeacademy on Feb 19! If you are a wedding planner or want to learn more about wedding planning, you MUST go to this incredible workshop taught by planners.
4. I'm teaming up with an amazing group at @risingtidesociety + @honeybook for something pretttty incredible on Monday; make sure you're following along! To quote my friend, @artbymegan...we are changing the world on Monday! #getexcited
5. I can't wait to share #allthethings going on with the #bcstudio and some projects in the works for #thecreateinitative that is making me want to jump up and down! It's going to be kinda epic if you ask me!

Today I took a day trip to NYC to support the babe that made this painting at her art show. @artbymegan is like the big sister I always wanted. She's out to change the world, and she's already made such a huge impact on my life. I'm so thankful to have someone as passionate as her to look up to (and to cry with at the #RTSretreat). Love you to Brooklyn and back Art By Megan (that's actually her legal name) πŸ’™

Sharing some exciting news on the blog today! A little about why I went to San Francisco and what is in the works for the year ahead! Go read more on the blog πŸ‘‰πŸΌπŸ‘‰πŸΌπŸ‘‰πŸΌ ahybridlove.com

Happy Friday!
Jumping into #fridayintroductions today with three random facts because meeting people is why we're here right?? β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
1️⃣ Last week I got up before dawn with my #rtsretreat roomie @rebeccawilcher to watch the sunrise over Golden Gate Bridge! If I look halfway decent it's purely due to her magic photography skills, as I pretty much rolled out of bed. πŸ˜‚
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
2️⃣ I'll gladly get up before dawn, but don't ask me to party all night with you because I go to bed at 9:30 most nights. πŸ‘΅πŸ»
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
3️⃣ In fact, I'm currently dreaming of a work buddy who would be interested in meeting up super early in the mornings to meet up at a coffee shop and get work done. Any takers?? Or did I just alienate all my followers because you're all night people? πŸ˜‚

Just spent what feels like eternity, filing our taxes. I am NOT a "numbers girl" and to be honest, considering the headache I have right now - I might even conclude that I could be allergic to numbers! πŸ˜‚ Wishing I was back in San Francisco, in @artbymegan's class, painting pretty oceans. //// πŸ“·: @_laurahernandez and @_rachelbench #RTSretreat

Today on the blog I made an impromptu personal post. I talk a little bit about my brush with death a few years ago and how it might have shaped the way I communicate on social media and also a few things that have helped me maintain my sanity in this digital age and create new friends from all walks of life. I'll warn you, it's all quite stream of consciousness but I think at its core you'll understand what I mean. πŸ“·: @bethannearthur
