Take last week for example. Last week I launched a new campaign for my business, The Meat Pie Girl.
I felt my biggest problem was lack or advertising, so for now, I've been using texts, Facebook status updates, and The Meat Pie Girl Inc. page on to advertise. I'm working on my flyer right now, and I should be done by the end of the day.
This is the first text ad that I sent around through mass text. I took it right after slaving in the kitchen in my bummy clothes. Next one I do I'm going to have to dress nice and make the ad look fly and stuff. Hahahaha.....The words that went with it were: Order your meatpies today! 5 for $3! Exclusively from The Meat Pie Girl Inc.
I'm selling the meatpies for 5 for $3 and so far the response has been pretty good. I make them every morning and bring them to school with me. Yeah, so that's taking a lot of my time. But I think it's gonna be worth it.
Along with all the things I pile on my plate to do, I've agreed to teach these little girls Igbo dance. I don't even know how I got myself caught up with that. Well actually I do. One of my friends knew a lady who was looking for someone to teach these kids, and he suggested my sister. But seeing as how she doesn't drive and can be a little unreliable (lol) I ended up agreeing to to do it. I told her that I'm not a professional; I don't even consider myself that well-versed in the art of Igbo dance. But she said she just wanted someone who was willing to do something. So I agreed.
Actually, the only reason my friend suggested us is because last year my sister, me, and two other guy friends did an Igbo traditional dance at our school's African cultural show.
That's me on the end. Igbo Kwenu! Lol...
It was fun and all, but I don't really feel that qualified me to be teaching anybody. Though I did teach my dance class some Igbo dance moves last semester. But none of them were Igbo, so they wouldn't have known the difference if I didn't do it quite right anyway! Hahahaahah....
Anyways, I met the little girls (and some of their brothers) last Friday. They were so cute! I can't wait to get started working with them. They showed me the dance the performed last time, a makossa dance.
Then their moms got up and started dancing. :)
I danced myself silly and went right to sleep when I got home, as is my habit with events of that sort. Hahahahaha.....
