Next Monthly Meeting

Have you ever wanted to know why people buy your services vs. your competition?
Sasha will tell you that it's not money. Do you know what are they comparing and how are they comparing it? Do you know that today's client aligns you with their own thoughts, dreams, and personalities? Which is why injecting personality into your brand is paramount. But how do you drop the fear that you have of being different and actually be who YOU are, not another company touting blush toned events? Join us at the W Seattle where Sasha Souza will show you the steps you need to take to define who you are in a crowded market.
