Oh 2015, we barely knew you. You came in on the heels of 2014, and before we realized it you were gone. We filled your days with travel, emails, phone calls and meetings. With design and photography and public speaking.

Here are the highlights of a very Betty 2015

We traveled to Miami

We threw one fantastic Treat Yo’ Self Giveaway 

We launched our own stock photography service

We spoke at the Lady Project Summit

We attended the Wayfair Heart Home Conference (and met this lady)

Suzanne attended the Inc. Women’s Conference

We featured 12 Betty-preneurs

We curated six Betty Boxes

We applied and were accepted into the Valley Venture Mentors mentorship program

 

 

Just a few of the beautiful websites we created this year:

 

Thomas LaRock, Data Expert

Meghan Godorov, Career Consultant

Dana Swinney, Public Relations

Business Betties Wrap Up 2015

 

 

How did we do on our goals from last year?

 

One featured Betty per month.

Almost. We technically had 12, since we had four in March (Miami’s Independent Thinkers), but July and October were Betty-less.

 

One Betty Box feature per month.

Nope. The Betty Box dropped off the map in July. Here’s the deal: When you run a business, occasionally priorities shift. Part of being a successful entrepreneur is knowing when to focus on something, and when to put it aside and make room for something else. That being said, the Betty Box is currently on the back burner.

 

Four Blog Posts Per Month.

So Very Very Close. We’ll count this as a win. We published a blog post 50 out of 52 weeks. If you’ve ever tried to consistently come up with new and interesting content, you know how epic this is.

 

1,000 Facebook Followers by the end of 2015.

Nope. What’s the saying? Aim for the moon and even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. Right now, the stars reside somewhere around 546 followers.

Speak at the Lady Project Summit

Yes! This totally happened. We had a fantastic audience who showed up to hear us tell them “What to Expect When Expecting a Website.”

We’d love to speak at more events this year. If you’d like to have a pair of Betties talk to your audience about branding and entrepreneurship, drop us a line.

 

Book one brand therapy session per month.

Nope. It just didn’t happen. That’s all we’ve got to say ‘bout that.

 

Launch our super secret project in February

Yes! We were a little bit secretive with Better Than Stock at the beginning of last year, but that’s only because we didn’t want to let the cat out of the bag until we were sure we had something really good to show you. We launched in February (on time) and since then it has evolved and been re-imagined thanks to our time spent in the Valley Venture Mentors program.

 

Thank you so much to all of you who made this an abundant 2015.

 

We’d love to introduce a few more clients into the Betty family in 2016. If you’d like to work with a pair of fun, thoughtful, and talented ladies to build your brand this year, let’s talk.
