Houston is a hot pot for diversity. Not only is it a culturally diverse city but also a nook where new diverse business bloom year in and year out.
Individuals who have been business owners for years know that to expand your business, there are massive forms of investment to be made for the business to remain relevant to the market. With a market and commerce such as the one we currently live in, business owners must maintain relativity to the market. In 2016, this does not only mean physically delivering a product to customers; it means public relations, networking, marketing, and a big (Big) one, social media.
Operating a new business in Houston can be slightly frightening. There are new businesses opening every day and business shutting down every day, too. The competition is endless. To our advantage, though, operating a new business in Houston can also be made easier. Living in a big city means there is a variety of resources from where new and sauced business owners can educate themselves of the do’s, the don’t’s and the how to’s of the current market.
One of those crucial and useful resources is Kindred Communications and their upcoming Business Advancement Conference. This year, Houston Latina Bloggers has partnered up with Kindred Communications and their conference, #BACHou2016. The conference’s agenda is formatted in a way that will require all attendees to participate in financial planning, branding, networking, DIY public relations, and much more.

I know that blogging can essentially become a business. Since I became part of Houston Latina Bloggers, I have been exposed to opportunities where I can expose my brand, per se. As of now, I love doing this blog thing for fun. But, if I can start doing something I love for money, why not? I am excited to be given the opportunity to learn with Kindred Communications along with my team from HLB. If you are a new business owner, beginning blogger, a business owner who’s been around for years, make your way to purchase your tickets for this progressive, fun event now!
