Power Pump Girls Galentine’s Event
This February, we will be doing a Galentine’s blog special that features some amazing female business owners around the Baton Rouge area!

Make your website do more for your business
Who feels like their website isn’t doing enough for their business? *hand raised emojis*
Initially, it may be easy to say, “My website works great. No problems here.” But oftentimes, it could be doing more for you than it currently is.
To know for sure, we like to ask questions like:
- What is your website doing to help make your job a little easier?
- What is it not doing that it really should be doing?
- What tasks are you completing manually that could be easily automated?
Websites are such an important aspect of our businesses, as they often offer the first impression of our work to potential clients. In addition to that, they can (and should be) a tool that makes your job as a business owner a little easier.
When it comes to websites, we design them in such a way that each function is utilized help you do your job. Let your website do more so you don’t have to!
Tuesdays Together Meetings (#communityovercompetition)
We’d like to introduce you to one of our favorite communities: The Rising Tide Society (RTS).
RTS is a volunteer effort made up of creative entrepreneurs and small business CEOs who believe in #communityovercompetition. Participants from communities all over the nation meet in Tuesdays Together gatherings to discuss business endeavors, and share knowledge while learning from peers and growing together.
If this interests you, join @tahjahharmony & @annaabrahamz at the next meeting! It’ll be Tuesday, February 19th, 6:00pm at The Parlor. We’ll be chatting about building client relationships so comment with a topic or question that’s on your mind.

Ingle Eats blog post
Our last but not least Galentine’s blog feature is… Ingle Eats! Shannon Countryman and Joan Chastain are two moms who created Ingle Eats to make those sit down family dinners happen even in the chaos of our daily lives. Their gourmet meals offer convenience to customers so they can spend more time enjoying and indulging in their meals than they do preparing them! Check out our blog to read more about the story of Shannon, Joan, and Ingle Eats!
