Rising Tide Road Trip Recap Pt. 1

When we decided to host the #RisingTideRoadTrip back in December led by HoneyBook Head of Community and Rising Tide Co-Founder Natalie Franke, we knew it had the potential to make an impact, but we weren’t prepared for just how powerful this experience would be.

We just passed the halfway mark on the 2,000-mile journey from Natalie’s hometown of Annapolis, Maryland, to HoneyBook headquarters in San Francisco. In that time we’ve connected personally with over 500 creatives at seven sold-out meetups in Charlotte, Charleston, Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa, Pensacola and New Orleans on the subject of Vision Casting and Goal Setting for 2020. 

Each event is powered by volunteers and chapter leaders who generously donated their time and talent to create these unforgettable experiences. They serve as a daily reminder of the heights we can achieve when we come together in the spirit of #CommunityOverCompetition. 

Thank you to everyone who has joined us, shared their story, contributed their business expertise and given their time. We are so grateful and cannot wait to continue fostering deeper connections with the community. We hope to see you on the road!
