Monday mornings are always rough for me, not just because it is the start of the traditional work week (which doesn’t really apply to me because when you own a business, work full time and freelance write, you work 24/7) but because it means that everything that I didn’t get a chance over weekend is now piled on my plate first thing Monday…I refuse to complain, however, this is the life I chose—and I love it. Call me a workaholic, glutton for punishment or any other interesting moniker, but at the end of the day, I’m here in this place….and happy to be here.
Anyway, one of the things I was able to do this weekend was solidify my CIAA event schedule…these are intimate, upscale events, so please secure your tickets early. All events will take place at PJ’s Lounge in the Epicentre in Uptown Charlotte. Expect to have a great time and to be treated like a VIP. Join us and truly party with a purpose.
