I’m excited to introduce Naomi Grange as our new host of Thursday Therapy in Orange County, California! Naomi is the owner and founder of TxtOurRegistry. And, every time I talk to her she’s just come back from a networking event or is off to attend one. This gal is a master networker! So, it’s only fitting that she should be the host of these wedding industry mixers in Orange County. Cheers!
Why did you start your business?
I started my company, while I was planning my wedding. I was searching for a gift registry, when the idea for a mobile cash gift registry popped in my head. My “husband to be” and I already had enough stuff, since we both had our own homes. I really wanted a simple and seamless experience for us and most importantly a simpler way for my guests. My husband came up with the name, TXTourREGISTRY.
The mobile registry is a revolutionary and savvy way to give and receive the green gift “money” everyone wants more of using a smartphone or computer. With some hard work TXTourREGISTRY was launched at our wedding and our guests loved it! With a few clicks they were able to give the perfect gift whenever, wherever. You can use TXTourREGISTRY for all of your love based events, including baby showers, graduations, fundraisers and charities.

As I mentioned earlier, networking is important to your business, whether you are seasoned or new. It is something you need to do consistently.

One thing I try to do at any event I attend is to make sure to follow up with at least 1-3 people I met. So join a Thursday Therapy near you.
