Hello Friends, I hope you are having a good Sunday

Yesterday after car shopping we stopped at Dutch Country Farmers Market to drop off the vacuum cleaner hose for repair.  After checking in on Foursquare, I unlocked a Loyalty Badge and was awarded 1 lb of FREE Chicken Tenders from Stoltzfus BBQ.  It was definitely a pleasant surprise and was going to be a perfect match for The Ghost Hot Sauce that I had just purchased.

Tired and hungry we drove over to Los Machados Mexican Restaurant  for a take out lunch.  This was my second time ordering the Texana Salad and it’s delicious; lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions are topped with large succulent shrimp, tender and perfectly seasoned slices of beef and chicken.  I added a few drops of The Ghost Hot Sauce to the salsa dressing and BOOM it was on like popcorn!

Hubby ordered the Vegetarian Delight #10; veggies cooked on the grill, served over a bed of rice and topped with cheese.  Tayair had the Enchiladas Supreme; 1 chicken, 1 bean and 1 cheese and beef enchilada topped with lettuce, tomato, guacamole and sour cream.  This family style, authentic Mexican restaurant is colorful with a fun atmosphere and the next time we’ll dine in so that I can order from it’s impressive bar.

I was gifted a product sample of bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0, for being a “Beauty Ambassador” for *Ladies Home Journal.  Now for the life of me I don’t remember signing up to become an “Ambassador“, but glad that I did because you know I like to get things FREE!

Ladies Home Journal Magazine

I am not a beauty expert nor have I ever claimed to be, but I’ve been known to try new products and then share my opinion, usually an Avon product because that’s what I sell.  So when I get free samples in the mail or from magazines I like to try them as an alternative to my Avon products.  The bareMinerals Eyeshadow READY 2.0, is a duo palette, “PAGE SIX” is a light pink shade and “MOST REQUESTED” is a darker burgundy both contain iridescent sparkles.  I swatched each color onto my arm and found them to be smooth in application as well as a complimentary color for my complexion.

I primed my eye lids before applying and chose my version of the Smokey Eye look.  Used an elf Angled Couture Eyeshadow brush for “PAGE SIX” and the Blending Eye Brush for “MOST REQUESTED”

The bareMinerals Eyeshadow went on smoothly with no dusting or falling flakes

Product wore well throughout the day and looked just as fresh at 3:00 p.m. as it did when first applied at 7:00 am

On Saturday The Money School of Delaware held it’s annual C.O.D.E. Conference for National Entrepreneurship Week at the Chase Center on the Riverfront.   This FREE event was held to give guidance to the small business community in the state of Delaware.

The doors opened at 8:00 am, and after completing a registration form you received a reusable shopping bag courtesy of Shoprite.  Attendees then entered the Riverfront Ballroom where over 30 exhibitors including the SBA, SCORE, PNC Bank, Wells Fargo, DEDO, Traci Lynn Jewelry and the YWCA had tables that showcased their products/services as well as items for sale or small giveaways.

On this cold and rainy morning the hot coffee and danish was a welcomed delight, but for each of the attendees all of various ages and ethnic backgrounds they delighted in a common goal; to obtain information and guidance to make their small business more successful.  Small businesses are the engine that drives the economy in Delaware and if they are successful, we are all successful.

The conference was kicked off by Mary Caracciolli, The Money Confidant, who emphasized that the day wasn’t about networking but about meeting people, building relationships and doing something for someone else.  Opening remarks were made by Lt. Governor Matt Denn, a major supporter of education in the state.  Chase was the #1 sponsor of C.O.D.E. and Daryl Graham spoke about the importance of supporting small businesses.  Ken Anderson, a DEDO rep stated that small businesses have created the most net new jobs in the state of Delaware.  State Treasurer Chip Flowers was also in attendance and video remarks were given by Governor Jack Markell and U.S Senator Chris Coons.

Judy Travis, Founder of Stockings for Soldiers Delaware spoke of how passion drives your business and presented a slide show.  Last year, over 10 thousand packages containing 47 thousand stockings were made and shipped thanks to the many volunteers who devoted their time.  Volunteers in this effort included students from elementary schools to members of Senior Citizen centers, but donations and volunteers are always needed.  One of the major rewards in volunteering for this program is knowing you are improving the morale of our troops serving overseas.

There were two sets of morning sessions from which to choose that began at 9:30 am: Business Start-up 101, and Run Your Business, Don’t Let It Run You.  The next two sessions started at 11:00 am: The Business of Your Business and Service…Your Secret Weapon To Success!

I sat in briefly in all 4 sessions and found them to be very informative, enlightening and one was quite entertaining.  Ellyn and Robert of SBA and SCORE started their session by having everyone stand and sing along to the song “Good night, I Gotta Feeling”, by The Black Eye Peas, it was a great way to rev up the brain cells.

speakers

A light lunch of pizza, and snacks were provided before the final General Session, “Understanding Social Media”, presented by Eric Holtzclaw, Founder and Chief Strategist of Laddering Works, LLC.  Using a PowerPoint presentation Eric highlighted the various groups of social media users; discussed understanding social media and how it makes an impact on today’s business.

Audience participation with questions followed, several asking how social media impacts their small businesses and why it was important to brand themselves on the Internet.  Social Media whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, or Google+, is here to stay however, the advice of only using what is comfortable was the underlying message from Eric.

The conference ended with the awarding of Door Prizes ranging from a $100 gift card to autographed copies of Eric’s new book, Laddering: Unlocking the Potential of Consumer Behavior.  Overall, it was a great event for anyone with or who is thinking about starting a small business in the state of Delaware.  Kudos to the staff of The Money School for all their hard work and effort that made this yet another successful event.
