2020 GATHERING ANNOUNCEMENT:
We tried. We thought the gathering could take place. Things were and are progressing to open, but just not fast enough. People are still not comfortable traveling and attending group events. It is with sadness that we announce that the gathering is cancelled for 2020.
We are sorry, but we believe it is in everyone's best interests.
The good news is that we can move everything from this year to 2021. La Shonda has graciously agreed to speak on the same topics next year and we can hold our event in the same space, so everything remains the same, just pushed ahead one year.
Rochestarians, or those willing and able to travel, watch for an announcement about my mini-gathering that will be held on the same date!
Come join us for the 2021 NE Bubbles & Blazes Gathering!
Date: August 13 & 14
Where: Harvest Bible Fellowship
Dinner: Friday evening, 6:30pm at a local restaurant (not covered under gathering fee)
La Shonda Tyree wants to live in a world where glass ceilings are smashed, dreams do come true and everyone is using handcrafted natural soap.

During her eleven years of business, La Shonda has served the handcrafted natural soap and cosmetics industry as a board member of The Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild as well as a local director for Indie Business Network.
As a sought after natural soap and cosmetics instructor since 2006, she has been a guest on the Indie Business Network Success Calls, featured in the “Herald News”, EbruTV and “The Network Journal Magazine”and “Inside Jersey Magazine”. She has been a contributing writer for the Lovin Soap Project eZine and Making Soap Magazine. She has been a speaker at the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetics Guild conference, on Indie Cruise 2013 as well as for Rising Tide Capital’s 2013 Start Something Challenge.
She is proud to be one of the first female alumni instructors for Rising Tide Capital’s Community Business Academy, a 12 week entrepreneurship training program focused on supporting starting and growing businesses to be successful.
