Chicago Workshop Recap: March 20 & 21



A few weeks ago we headed to Chicago to bring our two-day branding workshop to the Midwest for the very first time ever. It was definitely a bit colder than we’re used to (we’re headquartered in Phoenix!), but that didn’t stop us from bringing together a whole new group of bloggers, small business owners, and creatives all that we know about branding! Scroll down to see photos of the workshop, our amazing sponsors, and of course–the awesome students who stuck with us for two whole days to learn all they could about social media, photography, branding, blogging and PR to better their own businesses and blogs.
