Virtual Events: Content Creators and Collaborations

Are you in love with transforming and inspiring globally? You love to create, connect, and cultivate with people in real-life. At the same time, you are being and doing your best with virtual events, meetings, and travels globally now.


You love to connect with community online and with women in travel. You aren't alone in a desire for inspiring travel now and in the future. Whether you are home alone like me, or surrounded by family, 2020 has impacted humanity in ways we never imagined. From a global pandemic to millions unemployed to racial riots, humanity and our hearts hurt.


Maybe, you are a multi-passionate entrepreneur and traveler already? Or, you find yourself focusing on your side-hustle now more than ever with a focus to be full-time? Maybe you are a traveler who desires to expand your press, online business, and global travels? Or, maybe you are a travel brand wanting to connect and create virtual travels and press now?


Wherever you are in your entrepreneurial and global travel journey now, it looks dramatically different than 2019 like all of ours. You find yourself craving virtual events, meetings, and community more than ever.


You may have heard of travel communities, a friend of yours may be part of She's Wanderful, a global community of women in travel, content creators, and collaborations. I originally was attending the Women in Travel Summit in Kansas City to help in social media. Beth, Marissa and the team shifted amazingly to an online summit in May 2020 and online virtual meeting day.


In May 2020, I attended their Creator-Brands Virtual Meetings Day. Every content creator and traveler, I connected with had such a beautiful heart of service in various ways. From connecting on travel impacts to content creation to the global pandemic, while connecting on content creation and collaborations, my heart and soul felt full with every connection.


There are many ways for you to create a community online now with virtual events with content creators and collaborations with travel. Join me as I highlight my virtual meeting day with Wanderful.

Insights into Creating Communities

As a multi-passionate creator, educator, and traveler, I am constantly creating, connecting, and cultivating with communities from an influencer, entrepreneur and brand side. Connecting with a like-minded community impacts us all.


That's why when She's Wanderful announced their next way to pivot online with virtual meeting days after their virtual global travels summit, I jumped onboard. If you are new here, I love to travel in every way. From exploring solo to family travel to hosting retreats and aiding entrepreneurs and brands, sign me up!


I was conceived in Bulgaria, born in Poland, lived in a refugee camp in Italy for six months, and in four countries and the USA by the time I was two years old. I am also fluent in Polish, Bulgarian and Spanish. I have traveled to 27+ countries and have a deep love of travel largely due to my mom.

Would you love to transform and travel with the community globally? You may start with online experiences in communities globally like virtual meeting days with She's Wanderful. Immediately after their last virtual global travel summit, I implemented more ways for inspiring travel now and in the future. You will too!

Virtual Meeting Day Highlights

On the heels of Women in Travel Summit Online, Wanderful hosted a virtual meeting day between creators and brands who want to collaborate in travel. During previous years, these meetings are held in person and resemble speed networking. I participated in one with TBEX during previous travel blogger conferences,


If you have never heard of it, Women in Travel Summit (WITS) is the premier event for travel's top marketing talent. Creative entrepreneurs, influencers, DMOs, and industry come together to discuss future innovations, build dynamic collaborations, and change travel worldwide, all while supporting and empowering a diverse community of women.


WITS is organized by Wanderful. Now 40,000 strong, Wanderful is an international community of women who travel.



Beth is the Founder and CEO of Wanderful and creator of the Women in Travel Summit.


She is a thought leader on women's travel, an avid community builder, and a voice for women creators and entrepreneurs.







WITS Virtual Meeting Day


You have a choice to sign up for the virtual meeting days as a creator or as a brand. Although I function as both in various situations and circumstances, I decided to sign-up as a brand to attract content creators, bloggers, and entrepreneurs who would love to create and collaborate with us.


I want to extend massive gratitude to Beth, Marissa, Karisma, and her community for the inclusivity, diversity, and compassion during this time. I am, and we are walking through impacts financially in various ways. In the process, we are pursuing purpose and potential. It is not without pain along the path.


Wanderful opened up contributions for what you may give, as well as media. I proposed extensive media, as well as a minimum of 10% from ay results we get from aligned creators and brand results due to their community.


In advance of the Virtual Meeting Day, we received awesome instructions and videos from Beth and Marissa. Since I previously used BloggerBridge for meeting days and have been involved in them, I knew more or less what to expect. However, I still learned more ways to refine my approach to increase connecting and return on investment.


As a result of the preparation videos for the Women in Travel Virtual Meeting Day with Wanderful, I outlined a quick agenda to share with creators and set us up for success. I'm sharing so this may help you as a brand and/or creator.

Right away, when BloggerBridge opened for creators to sign-up with us, I was blown away by the caliber of creators.



Speaking of the entrepreneurs, content creators, and travelers we connected with globally online, I would love to share a spotlight on their stories, why they travel, and create.


@Alexaolavarria

Alexandra was the first one to sign-up for a session with us. Not only was she the first, but her humility and gratitude shined from the start. She displayed an openness and love of creation and travel at all times.


In every way, her spirit and soul shined in a desire to help others in all the ways she uses her passion, purpose and platforms. We flip flopped between English and Spanish. She shared a genuine desire to create with us in various ways, and followed up in <3 days.


She opened up on how she loves to empower women believe in their dreams and travel through her eyes . She shared passionately how she loves to create with love, passion, and over deliver.

Right, when Valerie came on our Zoom appointment, I could feel her authenticity and vulnerability with herself and others. When I asked if she and her family were okay during this time, she shared vulnerably how she ended up being impacted with our global pandemic.


Our twenty minutes as we connected on the pandemic, community, and collaborations flew by faster than ever. What I loved about each creator during Virtual Meetings Day with Wanderful is regardless of whether we create and collaborate is the respect and honor for one another and our dreams.

Ashley and I connected deeply on being multi-passionate entrepreneurs, our journeys, and creations. I love how she is a writer, creator, and traveler and pursuing her passions, purpose and potential.


Ashley shared how she always feels a need to travel and wants to see everything! Who else resonates?


She loves showing others how they may travel and make positive impact now more than ever. Ashley shares how she creates because she always felt need to do her own thing in every way.

Virtual Meeting Day with Women in Travel

My virtual meeting day with Wanderful and Women in Travel Summit helped us connect and create community limitlessly. The day filled my spirit with love, community, and inspiration in a time where it's more needed than ever.


Each and every creator brought a sense and spirit of gratitude in every way. Their passion for travel and creating shined bright in each and every session. So much happened in a day that it felt like a lifetime!


From all the candid conversation with content creators to connecting on collaborations online and live, the day was filled with joy.


What are some of the ways you create community? How are you creating what you love online and live now with community? Which ways are collaborating virtually, with online courses and with travel now?


Create, transform and inspire. Write down ways and/or connect with communities (even if online only) you would love to experience collaborations with in 2020-22 to start.


If you love this, you'll love our influencer marketing like a boss series.
