🎼 Mount Vernon HS orchestra teacher Alberto Rodriguez was looking to introduce his students to music that would have more meaning to their lives. He found the source of that new music in Phoenix, Arizona. Read about this journey as they prep for the premiere performance on May 25: bit.ly/37C9cYo

I took a giant leap into the unknown this past week very unclear of exactly what value it would have for my professional life.

It wasn't until I was in a large conference room full of people looking for answers that I remembered how much I love to teach my craft of digital marketing to people eager to learn.

I jumped back into presenting with my business partner, Selena Conmackie of Hauoli-Socially inspired at the TMEA Conference in San Antonio, TX. We've spent the past 4 months perfecting our presentation on promoting music education through social media. Jenna Day of Day Violins LLC supported us as a client and beneficiary of Anna+ Selena's brand.

👉We talked about the different uses of each social platform
👉We talked about how one component can be marketed across platforms.
👉We gave them best practices for organizing, creating graphics and copy, and posting parameters to support their entrance into the social media world...
👉We got them up and dancing for a TikTok video doing the currently trending !

...and so much more. A full hour packed with information and laughter and fun.

Audience participation was amazing. The music educators were eager to learn. Selena and I do what we do best in sharing knowledge that we believe in and Jenna was the confetti-throwing cheerleader!

The result of this jump into the unknown is that Anna + Selena has now been given opportunities to expand our reach into various school districts around the state supporting music educators, administrators, and even mentoring students.

I couldn't be more thrilled and I'm so glad I took a chance on trying something I wasn't completely sure about.

Looking back I can't believe I was unsure of the value this would bring to me professionally. I can't WAIT to do it again. Watch out conference world! Anna + Selena are here! 😍

These rising seventh-graders traded up to full-size violins today. Woot! Woot!
Welcome to Season Four of the 15{ish} MINUTE COFFEE CHAT - a conversation every business owner needs to hear.

This week Selena of Hauoli Socially Inspired and Anna of NomadAbout host Jason Day, Day Violins LLC. Jason built his string instrument business from a side hustle into the premiere stringed instrument shop in Northern Virginia. Join us to chat about what's possible when you truly love what you do.

Connect + Laugh + Inspire Your Business while we try (and fail) to keep it at 15{ish} minutes!

Topic: Hustle: Doing What You Love and Loving What You Do.
