31 Things About Me #InspiringAdventures #LEDA #LSPChallenge @mizmelizla

Posted on August 4th, 2017 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Intentional

I’m taking the Live Streaming Pros Challenge: Live Every Day in August. When Luria Petrucci asked us to write in the comments during her broadcast yesterday, “I commit.” I did it. I started today.

I decided to list 31 things about myself. These will be my daily topics. So, tune in, chime in, and let’s talk! Five minutes a day is all it takes. I’ll stream live from Facebook.com/MizMelizLA I will try my best to stick to consistent times. I hope to see you there!

31 Things About Me

Live-streaming is the main vehicle I use to deliver my message, it’s the one I enjoy driving the best!

A word about challenges…

This is my challenge. I am accepting it now because I believe it will help me with instituting a daily practice of delivering fresh content in my live feed on Facebook. This is something I’ve wanted to do for awhile. I’ve joined other challenges and I have found it to be an effective way for me to develop routines, hone skills, and be better at what I am doing.

There has been some discussion around the interwebs about how these challenges clutter up the feeds and become like junk mail in our already minutiae laden datasphere. I say, stay calm and scroll on! You are in control of what you consume. If you don’t like to see people try to make themselves get better at something, if seeing too much video content is starting to bore you, then it might be time for you to unplug for awhile. Video, especially live video, is on the rise!


I’m speaking at ConnectHer Media’s Women in Business Conference #ConnectHer17 on Using Video to Help Build Your Brand Effectively with Andrea Corson of Video Pop and Aaron M. Sanchez of KMET ABC News Radio on August 5-6, 2017.

Monday is MizMeliz Day on SnapDays @SnapDays_Bot @BubblrMedia

Add #SnapDays on Snapchat It’s a Directory of Awesome Snappers and their Fun Activities

 

Have you heard about the Snapchat Bot? It’s called SnapDays and it is designed to keep you informed of the daily activities on Snapchat. I am new to bots and I am still understanding how they work. How about you?

When you activate the bot it sends you messages and you can ask questions. If you use key words it will respond with some suggestions. For instance, if you ask what is happening on Monday…

 

So, be sure to Use Keyword “Monday” with the SnapDays Bot! and have fun checking out what is happening on all the other days, too!

Allison Diamond is the mastermind who designed the bot. She is also a creator on the BubblrMedia network. She has produced a number of shows including the World Harmony Project. Currently her focus is on Roasts & Ghosts with SnapDays which airs live on Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. Pacific time on Facebook.com/BubblrMedia.

Message from Allison, the human behind the bot:

“I’d love to feature you guys on #SnapDays! #SnapDays is a bot that alerts subscribers about Snapchat hashtags (like #SingItSunday), Snapchat “shows” (like #CreepyBitmoji) and events (like Chatsnap). We also feature individual snappers. It’s all about making fun and meaningful connections!

I’ve entered the link below. Let me know!”

Moms Save with Groupon and Get Conference Ready @Groupon #sponsored

Posted on July 24th, 2017 by & filed under BubblrMedia, Everything Miz Meliz

Save with Groupon and Get Conference Ready

There are a lot of conferences that Moms and Dads attend around the country these days. We often combine a little business and family time at these events. Especially when the conferences and conventions take place at a resort or vacation destination. (This is a sponsored post, see my disclosure for details on why I post articles like this on MizMeliz.com.)

I’m excited to offer you some tips and some super discounts from Groupon that will help you prepare to have an amazing and productive time on your next conference or family getaway!

 

Here are some tips to be conference ready that any Mom or Dad can use to help keep costs down and get organized:

 

Pack light and plan to dress comfortably – it isn’t about what you wear, it is how you wear it that matters. You will make an impression with your smile and attitude, not your wardrobe. Bring one accessory or garment that defines you or that is your “signature color” and wear it every day.

If you are speaking or meeting with clients, be sure to bring a sport coat or suit jacket. Even if you wear it with jeans at a casual conference, it will speak volumes about how you take the position and the experience seriously.

Bring business cards. At tech conferences or new media expos you really only need a few because you can hold it up and everyone you meet can snap a picture and gather your contact info that way. I have my snap code on a sticker that I put on the back of my lanyard so I just flip that around and after every selfie I am in, I ask new friends to add me. If they aren’t on Snapchat, my Twitter handle is on there, too.

For networking conferences like the one I am attending in August, ConnectHer Media 2017, I will be bringing lots of business cards. I also made up some post cards because I am representing my new company, BubblrMedia. At big Expos and trade-shows I highly recommend bringing stickers or useful gadgets with your logo and contact information printed on them. Everyone loves a freebie and you can get these made up at a very low cost online.

Proof copy of the post cards made on VistaPrint.com

Since I will be leading a round table presentation at ConnectHer, I am printing up some One Sheets. I get all the printing done online at VistaPrint. They are quick, great quality, and always have great deals.

Know your elevator speech as well as you know your address! Practice this and memorize it. Keep it to five (or less) key points. Be clear in your delivery. Focus on one main thing you want to present when you attend a conference. Of course you know more and do more than that, but when you meet someone for the first time and you have just about the length of time as a ride in an elevator to tell them about yourself – make it the best part of your life story!

Bring your own water and snacks. If you are traveling long distances, by air or car, and staying in a hotel – you will benefit by having some snacks and bottled water with you. Remember, you can’t bring bottled water on a plane. But if you can stop by a Target along the way after you land, you can get a lot more for your money.

Don’t forget to bring your vitamins and health supplements! Eating right while on the road and on vacation is hard to do. By planning ahead and staying on your regimen, you will be at your best to present and/or learn as much as you can while attending the long sessions and meeting people at the conference. You will also have plenty of energy to keep up with the night life, and/or the family activities you have planned in the off time.

After the conference is over, be sure to send thank you cards to the people you met who made an impression or who helped you in some way. If you were hosted or sponsored, be sure to send some something special from 1800Flowers as a thank you gift. A sincere gesture goes a long way.

A wonderful way to thank someone is to send a video message on social media. I like to do this on Twitter using the #VideoReplyDay hashtag or on Instagram to publicly thank people for the nice things they do.

Have a great time and take lots of pictures! Don’t forget to post them to your social media accounts and tag the conference and use their hashtag! I will be wearing my BubblrMedia sticker everyday at #ConnectHer17 in Las Vegas! I can’t wait!

Inspiration

Two years ago, when I was first invited to attend ConnectHer15, I was so impressed. I sat at a table near the back of the room. I thought to myself, “Wow, these speakers are great!” I had just finished my book and I was fairly confident that I wanted to be a leader in this community.

I signed up as soon as I could to be a speaker the following year. I was selected to present at a round table discussion at ConnectHer16 which was bigger and better than the year before. Again, I sat at a table surrounded by women I have gotten to know through the years, thoroughly inspired. I loved leading a round table (I did the presentation on using video to promote your business three times that day!) At the end of the day I walked up to the gorgeous stage, I sat on the plush purple sofa, surrounded by pink balloons and I imagined myself being on that stage. I took a few selfies up there.

I believe that when you envision it, you can make it happen. I am excited about being on a panel about video at ConnectHer 2017! I am just starting to wonder, who and what will inspire me there for the next step in my journey?
