So ProFRESHional

Last minute a few of us vendors were invited to talk on an art and craft vendors panel during a mobile small business meeting/workshop hosted by the SBDC here in Laredo. We didn't know what we were going to be asked prior to the event so we were basically winging it. Luckily the questions were easy and it all went really well. Even though the event was mostly about starting your own food truck, we talked about our local art community and there were also other panels about local markets, permits, and marketing.

Our panel literally took only 15 minutes. Since we're friends IRL, it went smoothly and we were able to bounce off of each others answers and we didn't have to repeat ourselves.

It was pretty fun to be honest. It was something totally different and out of my comfort zone, so I'm happy I did it. I recorded our panel but wasn't able to stand up my phone so I basically recorded the ceiling. I relistened to it later that day and we definitely sounded professional. It's weird to think that considering how I feel that sometimes I'm not as much of an adult as I should be. But this has totally given me a confidence boost and I know I'm going in the right direction.
