Massage Intuit with Phoebe Rivenbark

Massage Intuit with Phoebe Rivenbark

And a quick shout-out to my new friend, Phoebe Rivenbark.  She is a NC Licensed Massage Therapist at Massage Intuit.  I saw her last week and she did AMAZING work on my back and hip flexor!   I found Phoebe through a friend & referral partner, Robert Courts.   I highly recommend Phoebe for anyone who is looking for a great massage (both relaxing and healing) in the Triangle area, particularly in Raleigh.   I’ve had lots of massages over the years and she ranks up there as one of the best!

Live Music & More with Wind Down Wednesday at Waverly Place

Zoey in her Smith & Smith, CPA chair!

Zoey in her Smith & Smith, CPA chair!

Our family FINALLY made it to Waverly Place last night for Wind Down Wednesday!  It was HOT but the music was great, the food was good and the friends were even better!  The band, Jim Quick & Coastline, had everyone up dancing in the summer heat.   And check out this little cutie, Zoey Johnson, who is just as happy as she can be…because she is sitting in this AWESOME Smith & Smith, CPA chair!  We have been using these chairs as give-aways and prizes for events & auctions over the past few years.  They also come with a matching cooler!  It’s important to keep our brand & logo out there and the chairs & coolers have been a nice added asset to our Smith & Smith, CPA marketing plan!   And taking the chairs to Waverly makes for a great opportunity for use to use them.  Let me know if you have an event coming up and you need an auction item as I would be happy to donate a chair/cooler.  Blake & I had a fun time and enjoyed seeing lots of friends and clients out for Wind Down Wednesday

NCER July Luncheon

NCER July Luncheon

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the North Carolina Executive Roundtable luncheon.  This nonprofit professional association that provides a forum for building trusted relationships among senior executive professionals and peer discussion groups.  Their speaker, Joe Stewart, is the Executive Directors for the NC Free Enterprise Foundation.  I found his topic on voter behavior in North Carolina to be very interesting, especially with an election year right around the corner!

Growing Your Business Referrals

Carrie, Becca & Kim

Carrie, Becca & Kim

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of attending a presentation for Professional Working Women called “Grow Your Business: Referral Request Seminar”.  The event was hosted by Carrie Peele and featured guest speaker, Mary Cantando, Founder, of The Woman’s Advantage.  Carrie is the newly appointed Chair for the Triangle Chapter of The Woman’s Advantage and hosted her first event at the PNC Boardroom in Raleigh.  So many women business owners & working professionals struggle waiting for referrals to happen by “word of mouth”.  This seminar taught us how to stop waiting for them to happen and how to instead, MAKE the them happen!   Carrie and Mary also presented the opportunity to learn more about the Women’s Advantage Program and how ladies can sign-up to get involved.  I really enjoyed the class and was happy to have my friend & fellow ShopLocalRaleigh member, Kim Davis of The Paystub People along with me.   Kim and I worked as partners during the class and had a chance to share several times when Mary called on volunteers.   I can’t wait to take what I learned from this class and aplly it to my job as Director of Marketing at Smith & Smith, CPA.   WA-logo-PDF

Thanks to Carrie for the invite!  Please feel free to contact her to learn more!  Also a shout-out to Lois Cozart of My Girlfriend’s Closet for dressing me in the colorful Joy Joy summer dress!   Who said you can’t wear horizontal stripes!?!?!  Shop My Girlfriends Closet in downtown Apex and downtown Cary (MGC Oh-la-la) for great summer fashions & savings! Tell them you read Beccasblog.com to get 10% off your purchase!

Check out my office for the next week!  YEA!!!!  See you July 27th!
