Virtual Events For Travel Content Creators
April 6: Setting Goals for Your Business: Creating Your 90-Day Plan
For Wanderful Creator Members
This past year did go the way so many of us anticipated. For many, we have been totally derailed, especially in the travel blogging industry!
This session will give you a chance to rethink your goals and break them down into smaller, actionable and achievable steps. Together, we will get you focused and ready to move forward in the coming months.
Join Lottie Reeves for this event to learn:
- How to set bigger picture goals that are aligned with you and your brand
- How to break these down so they aren’t overwhelming
- How to use your goals to set weekly tasks that keep you on track and moving towards your bigger goal
About Your Host: As a partner of Female Travel Bloggers Lottie is experienced in setting up, growing and establishing a blog. She is passionate about bloggers seeing themselves both as business owners and as women in the tech industry and not ‘just’ as a blogger. Lottie connects and supports bloggers through the highly engaged FTB Facebook community.
As a trained teacher, Lottie is a natural coach and having lived all around the world in apartments, a caravan and now a narrowboat, she has a solid understanding of running a location independent business as well as living the LI/Digital Nomad lifestyle.
Her skills lie in simplifying overwhelm and creating game plans that will move your blog forward while focusing on the tasks you enjoy and are excited to get done!
Lottie’s motto is to “live life to the beat of your own drum.” She believes in empowering women to tune into their intuition and follow it down the path they’re being nudged to explore – even if that takes them off the traditional path!
In her downtime Lottie is an advocate for mental health awareness and support, runs a social enterprise, and is a new mum who writes about parenting and mental health. Learn more on her website.
What She Can Offer: Lottie offers a unique mix of life and business coaching – be warned, sharing an idea with her will lead to her encouraging you to take action rather than talk about it!
She can offer support with:
- Blog and Business Strategy (affiliate income, content creation and optimisation, time management, marketing, designing and implementing a strategy, goal setting)
- Website Development
- Facebook Group Management
- Location Independent Lifestyle
- Discovering Your Drumbeat!

April 27: GTFO! Get to Freedom Online – By Getting Offline
Exclusively for Wanderful Creators
Feeling burnt out on social media lately? You’re not alone. Join our Wanderful community for an online workshop led by Amanda McLernon, CEO and Founder of a social media agency, about GTFO-ing!
This event is part talk, part workshop and we will explore the importance of disconnecting from our digital worlds to reconnect with ourselves, our community, and our world IRL.
Amanda will share tested strategies and tactics for setting boundaries with social media as business owners and marketers who use social media to generate revenue.
This event is “video-on encouraged,” which means we’d love to have you physically present for the conversation, but you can choose to turn your video and mic off if you’re more comfortable.
About the presenter: Amanda McLernon is the CEO and Founder of McLernon & Co., a social media agency and Keep Social Media, a social media community. Recognized as one of the MARsum Top 100 Influencers in Advertising and Marketing, Amanda’s work explores the intersections of social media marketing, technology addiction and mental wellness.
Amanda is on a mission to Keep Social Media Social by helping people build real, honest communities online. By teaching individuals, groups, and audiences how to have a healthy relationship with social media, she also helps them live a better life IRL.
In her volunteer time, Amanda speaks nationally with General Assembly, Junior Achievement, American Marketing Association and other entrepreneurial and educational organizations. When she’s not working you can find her skiing, exploring or creating art. She loves to live life offline! #KeepSocialMediaSocial
