Does the thought of extending one make you cringe? Have you been wanting to get to know your neighbor, but never seem to find a natural way to extend an invite? Have you been wanting to get coffee with that person you often workout next to at the gym, but feel awkward asking? If yes, this episode is for you. Diving into how to invite those in our life to creative gatherings, we will be walking through how to phrase an invitation, who to invite, and ways to gather that make everyday hospitality attainable. You will walk away with confidence that your invitation is worth extending and feeling equipped to host as you are vs unattainable cultural hospitality expectations.
In addition to extending an invitation, you will also join us in a conversation about:
*Budget-friendly tips and tricks for hosting
*Overcoming “CHAOS” (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome)
*Ways to gather when life seems cluttered and chaotic
*How to live a life of Open Door Hospitality
Join me in this conversation that will surely leave everyone who listens ready to ‘Just Open the Door.’
