Ask Anything

The Rising Tide recently did an Instagram challenge week and it went viral!! It was awesome!! I loved seeing everyone get involved. However, my FAVORITE posts were on the day when they encouraged their followers to tag a fellow creative that they loved and were thankful for!! And you want to know what a common thread was on my feed? There were TONS of creatives sharing pictures of their new friends that they met at our first COME TOGETHER EVENT!!!!

How amazing is that?! This little event that we dreamed up with Amy and Jordan turned into a huge success with over 130 small business owners!! It also became a catalyst for so many new friendships and growth in the industry! We loved hosting this event so much that we have decided to host another one!!! IN ARIZONA!!!!

That’s right, we’re hitting the road!

So if you’re within driving distance of SCOTTSDALE, AZ, and you own a small business that is in need of some marketing growth, JOIN US!! If you aren’t sure if this is for you… more than likely, it is…. you just need a little kick in the butt to make yourself go! Putting yourself out there and attending something IN-PERSON always takes some extra motivation… but let me tell you, it’s life-changing. Don’t believe me?! Just read through some of these instagrams from our first #cometogetherevent!

Here’s some more information about the event! We can’t wait to hug some west coast friends new and old in October!!

We met Nicole and Matt the day before their wedding day in downtown Chicago. Normally, we prefer to do a full engagement session with our KJ Couples before their big day but that really wasn’t possible due to our schedules and the long distance. Thankfully, meeting the day before was absolutely perfect and it prepared all of us to have a dream wedding day in the Windy City!
