Greetings from NxLevel Business Bootcamp in Sacramento

Greetings from NxLevel Business Bootcamp, sponsored by Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce!

Why am I here?

1) Chicas Latinas de Sacramento — it’s time to take my pride and joy to the “next level” and I am here to gain the tools needed. Although we’ve been in existence for nearly 7 years, it is time to revisit our business plan, adjust, and set goals for the future. I often get wrapped up in my passion and the purpose of Chicas Latinas, and the business aspect of my nonprofit doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. 

2) Profession — As a marketing, PR, and business development professional, I typically work with small businesses and it is important for me to have a more in-depth understanding of the complexities business ownership brings and how I can be a better asset to businesses and nonprofits, alike. Wherever I go, I intend to be prepared.

I am currently at La Cooperativa Campesina de California assisting with their temporary CA Drought Jobs Program and providing a bit of community outreach and communication assistance while here.

Blog, post hiatus. 

Yesterday was day-one of the NxLevel Bootcamp. There were a few familiar faces (and event past clients) in the class and while most seemed to be aware of Chicas Latinas’ happenings, there were questions about what I’m doing professionally these days. It is now day-two of the business bootcamp and the focus is on marketing, social media, and PR. Today is a bit of a refresher for me, but it has also been a great reminder as to what skill-sets and talents I have, and how I am (or am not) using them.

The awakening…

During break today (after our SEO presenter), one of my classmates checked Chicas Latinas de Sacramento’s Google ranking using targeted keywords and she informed me that we were on the first page. She also informed me that she checked my personal blog, at which point I immediately acknowledged my lack of posting, how I’m not taking advantage of it’s potential, and even caught myself saying “my life is boring these days.” Wrong… so here I am.

Having already wrote out and discussed our S.W.O.T.s in class today (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats), I figured there is no better time than the present to address a weakness of mine and turn it into an opportunity.

Hello world. I’m still here… I’ll try to be here more!

My days aren’t as boring as I sometimes think. Yesterday was pretty eventful:

Free Sacramento Nonprofit Social Media Workshop, Presented by Angela Rosas

I’ve been M.I.A., I know.

Backstory: See what happened was, I was nominated for this national award (Coors Light Líderes of the Year). Both myself and Chicas Latinas de Sacramento were a bit overwhelmed…

The good news, I’m back to flying under the radar and doing the things I love… like teaching and presenting! Did I mention I used to be a Marketing and Social Media consultant?

Over these last few months, I’ve received numerous requests for social media training from our #Network4Cause sponsored organizations. It didn’t take me long to convince Eric that we should hold a free workshop for Sacramento nonprofits at Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff. Actually, it didn’t take any convincing at all and I couldn’t be more excited to see another dream come to fruition.

Dearest Sacramento area nonprofits, please join me at…
