Find YOUR Passion
Lyric Marketing is preparing for a special media weekend with my very dear friends from MakeAStandLemonade.com. While they are here visiting in Dallas this week, we will be spreading the word about little Vivienne Harr, the 9 year old activist who is changing the world with her lemonade stand. After over 280 days of selling lemonade every day, Vivienne has raised over $400K and will soon be launching the little pink bottlled drink to sell in retail outlets across the country. This is what one person – one little girl – can do when you have a passion.
If you want to drop by and meet Vivienne and drink the lemonade (ha!), we will be at Founders Plaza Thursday April 4 from 2:30-4:30 and Friday from 12:30 – 2:30. We will also be at Victory Park in front of WFAA on Sunday from 11:30 – 1:30. Come by and meet the gang and get in on a great photo op!
We here at Lyric Marketing are ready to help you find your passion. A business that is driven by passion and purpose cannot be stopped! Don’t be content with the way things have always been, share your passion and tell your story to your market through targeted, strategic digital marketing and social media management. Call me, let’s have coffee!
This month Lyric’s HOT list has a variety of events and opportunities to get you out of the house and networking. There is some good music and food on the list too that you might want to check out (one of my favorite bands on the list is Grizzly Bear). I hope you can get out and about and enjoy the Spring weather before it gets too hot! Business is booming in Dallas, so NOW is the time to get your marketing in order and get out and network!
Hope to see you around . . .
Love & Peace
