This past Tuesday was an awesome one! Celebrity blogger Talking With Tami held her Blogger is the New Entrepreneur dinner at the fabulous Aja restaurant in Buckhead. Special guest included Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star Mimi Faust and The VBar owner, Tanya Tibbs. Tami started the night off by telling us how she started her fabulous blog, Talking With Tami, as well as other great tips on how to monetize your site, branding, building traffic, etc.
As the evening went on, Tami introduced her first guest Tanya Tibbs, owner of The VBar Lady. Tanya has an awesome product, The VBar, an all natural, eco-friendly soap, designed specifically for your “pocketbook”. Tanya also gave us great info on what her product does and how she uses social media to boost her business.
While talking, we feasted on an fab three course meal. I had the spring rolls, ginger salad, and honey ginger chicken. Everything was delicious!
Tami’s second special guest, reality star Mimi Faust, was really nice! She talked about her business, the show, social media, her beauty secrets, and other random things. How she started her business was pretty random but cool. She was at a house party and the kitchen was pretty messy from all the party goers. Mimi’s pretty anal so she cleaned up the place! LOL! The owner loved what she did and joked when was she coming back, she said if you pay me and then her business was born. She also, of course, talked about Love & Hip. She said the show isn’t scripted and that you don’t even know what you’re filming until shortly before you arrive to your location. When asked will she do another season, Mimi said, “Yes, if the price is right.” Which is pretty soon because Mimi said that they start back filming next month!
In all, the blogger dinner was awesome! We learned some extremely valuable information on blogging and and had a bunch of fun along the way! I want to thank Tami for having the dinner and sharing all her knowledge on blogging and social media!
