LET’S GET UNFILTERED
“YOU KNOW AFTER A LONG DAY, YOU GO TO THE BAR AND YOU JUST NEED TO VENT? BAR BABBLE IS THAT PLACE FOR YOU.”
Picture this. Your day starts with spilled pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, on that new blazer during your morning commute. You are already late to the office because your alarm didn't go off. The printer is broken, you can't print reports for the morning meeting, the internet connection is delayed on your phone that any emails sent on your smartphone was never sent and the list goes on and on. This just takes you on a never-ending cycle of a bad day. Who can relate?
How do you decompress after a stressful day like this? Most importantly how do you continue to work in that never-ending cycle of a bad a day and come to work the next day feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day as if yesterday never happened? Ever found yourself at the bar at the end of the day telling the bartender, "I need a drink"?
Let's keep it 100. We all have those days, those weeks and even those months when things don't go our way. But then there are times when your work is outstanding that your boss fails to recognize your hard work or anything you do. Sometimes even after a small or big win at the office, we still don't seem to be recognized at all. We feel drained, uninspired and unmotivated regardless if we win or lose.
Sometimes being a hard-working professional or even an entrepreneur means living in a lonely world. We go through the phases of our career sometimes feeling like no one understands what you go through or what you accomplish. Even if you have a spouse, a partner or a good set of friends, you will always need your business besties who understand what it is like to be in your shoes and understand the stress, the pressure and to celebrate your successes. Living in a virtual world, the human connection is becoming outdated, or some may say "old fashioned" (#winkwink). But we will always need any type of connection or support to stay focused, inspired and connected. What if I told you there is a place that you can go to, where we can celebrate our stresses and successes? A place where you can be unfiltered, unapologetically you, and feel supported after a long workday.
Welcome to Bar Babble. Bar babble is the place where you can have a chance to sit down and chat about business, marketing, career development and wellness with the Old Fashioned Marketing (OFM) team. It is the place where we post topics that are relevant, important, resourceful, and post some topics that no one wants to talk about because of the fear that you will never be understood. Bar Babble is an OFM resource and community where we can vent about anything and everything. We share information to help you become successful not just in your professional life but in your personal life as well. OFM is all about wellness as the present world is all about glorifying the term "busy". But the OFM team are trendsetters and we are now setting a new trend in the workplace to support busy hard-working professionals so they can be the best versions of themselves. Let's bring back joy into the workplace and in our daily lives. No more feeling understood, unheard, uninspired or feeling lonely. We are your business besties, the person you can vent to at the bar after a long day. Does this sound like something that you want to be a part of? Mark your calendars.
On Wednesdays at 5:00 pm EST (because that's when happy hour starts), we will post new blog posts with topics about business, marketing, career development, and wellness. This is the time where we can virtually meet up at the bar, grab a drink and babble about important topics so you can go home feeling refreshed. If there are certain topics that you want to chat about for our next Bar Babble, comment on any blog post or send us an email. We want to make sure we support you in any way.
So, will I see you next Wednesday at 5:00 pm? Grab a drink and let's bar babble.

Lucy is an avid supporter of taking the time to “namaste” away from the work day and making time for friends, family and a little bit of whiskey, promoting a work-life balance. The Bar Babble blog was created to provide resources for like minded professionals to succeed in their professional and personal lives and also for students or anyone who wants to jump into the marketing world. Bar Babble is that time and place after a long day where you can be unapologetically unfiltered and babble about the highs, the lows, tips and tricks that no one talks about. Let’s get a little “whiskey”, and let’s Bar Babble.
