Around the World from Home: 2019 Texas Cultural Events & Festivals

As far back as I can remember one of my favorite outdoor things to do was/is attend festivals. Growing up I looked forward to the Houston International Festival every year. The music, the food, and the cultural exposure...there’s usually always something fun to do and cool to see at festivals. Here’s a list of some cool festivals taking place in the Houston, Texas area or within driving distance of the Houston, Texas area this year. Some of these events are free and tickets to some of the events that aren’t free can be purchased at a discount on Groupon so be sure to do a little research before you plan your next adventure. #liveItUp

Around the World from Home: Celebrating Mardi Gras & Creole Culture in Texas

Bonswa Butterflies! It’s that time of year again, celebrating Mardi Gras and the Creole/Cajun Culture is something I look forward to every year. The festivals, the food, the unique music and the atmosphere in general is why so many people are intrigued by the Creole/Cajun Culture. In the Big Easy (New Orleans, LA) Mardi Gras celebrations usually began in January and end in February or the first week in March depending on what date Shrove Tuesday falls on. Shrove Tuesday, also know as Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday is the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. Fat Tuesday is the biggest day for Mardi Gras celebrations because it’s the last day of the season. In case you were wondering, Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent which is the forty days before Easter Sunday (not including Sundays) reserved for fasting, abstinence, prayer, and repentance.

7 Tips for Branding & Marketing Your Small Business While on a Budget

This post contains affiliate links.

Hey Entrepreneurial Butterflies! Since it’s the beginning of a new year and I’m in the process of refreshing a lot of my marketing related stuff for the new year, I thought I’d share with my fellow go-getters a few simple, low-cost but effective ways to market your brand. It’s extremely vital to your brand that you stay up to date and continue to evolve your marketing techniques. Branding yourself and or your company is necessary if you want to get to your next level of success.

1. Choose a Business Name. - When it comes to choosing a business name, be creative but keep it simple. You want a name that stands out but is easy to remember. Once you’ve chosen your business name, you will need to register it with your county by applying for a DBA.

2. Design Your Logo. - Your company logo is just as important as your company name. You want your logo to stand out, catch people’s attention and be reflective of you and the business name you chose. I got new logos from LogoJoy this year, they’re not that expensive and they look great.
