Last night, My friends and I celebrated the launch of THE TRAVELER – my new travel services business. I held this little shindig at Current, a Japanese restaurant in Dupont Circle. There was much camaraderie and great food (loved the hanger steak on a stick appetizers). It was super seeing friends from my Johns Hopkins’ days – some of whom I had not seen in some time. I also received a lot of feedback regarding my new website as well as advice about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and monetization – concepts I never heard of! It seems I have much to learn regarding advertising, etc, however, since I am passionate about this new endeavour, I have no problem doing what needs to be done to make this enterprise a success.
Many thanks to Leslie Petway of LP Design Co. for building my site and helping me with the design. She was a pleasure to work with and was patient in dealing with all of my revision requests. Leslie constructed my site in record time and gave me a lot of great advice on marketing my business. I am very grateful.
Thanks to all of you who came to my party last night. It meant a great deal to me that you joined me in celebrating the launch of my business. I hope to see you guys/gals soon!
