I was out of the studio and office because sometimes you just need to close shop and get away from your surroundings. Do you follow me on Facebook and Instagram? If so, some of you were asking about where I was and what I was doing on some of my posts. I took 10 day Caribbean vacation to Turks and Caicos Islands and spent time with some old friends, and made new ones. My really good friend owns a house, her and her husband built on a dream! I got an invite right at the same time it was my sons 21st birthday and so off we went!
The Turks and Caicos waters are breath taking and that is so relaxing to me. We stayed on the Salt cay (pronounced “Salt Key”) which is an Island that was a huge epicenter for the production of salt in the 1700s. The Turks and Caicos is located in the Bahama island chain and is owned by the Queen of England. The Island Salt Cay has a grand whopping population of 63 people. The people there were so fun, happy, warm and welcoming.
My friends and the home I stayed in. “Calypso”
Some of the new friends my son and I made with the locals.
Some beautiful beach time in that gorgeous blue water.
You’ve probably seen me all over social media. I try my best to update often and be myself. When I first started out with my business, people would totally question why I use it or scoff “that’s so stupid.” It’s not stupid at all! When I was in a hard place and had only $2,400 to my name I logged on to the computer and grew my business! I had no other way to make money. I wasn’t about to give up my artist lifestyle for another job. I made social media accounts and hustled to get where I am today and still hustle!
Social media is a perfect medium for me. I am a shy “standoffish” person but with social media I can post for thousands of people to see because I can communicate comfortably. It’s a tool where I can teach people all over the world to paint. I treat my social media presence as a business and conduct business accordingly because that is where I get some business to paint, and can get others excited to want to paint. So obviously, I wish to be treated like a business on social media.
Don’t get shut down…your itches will be scratched and your questions will be answered! I am rebooting my website super soon where I have a new service to offer! Virtual consultations! We can set up a meeting where I can walk you through the steps or answer your paint color questions, clear coat questions, and other questions without any distractions. Stay tuned for that option! We can chat about whatever you want. It’s coming soon. So save a date for me if you got questions 😉
