I have so many weddings to go to this coming year. What is with 2015? I guess it must be a lucky year for love. For those without love in their lives yet, well, let’s make it happen! This brings me back to my friends’ requests to create a speed dating event for them. I always tell them that i’ll think about it. This year though, my workshop director, April, had this brilliant idea of creating a Speed Networking event for our workshop series called Freelance Pro in cooperation with Freelance Blend, the brand of my Manila Reviews co-author, Marv De Leon.

Now, I won’t bore you with all the details about the event. You can read that by going to the link above. What I want to share with you is a list of 5 reasons why you should go to the event:

Reason #1: Widen your Network for your Business/Services
There are a lot of people who are looking for ways to earn by just staying at home. There are a lot of people looking for jobs that could give them extra income. Ladies and Gents, your chances in landing a job (and a good job that is) increases if you let people know about what you do and a personal (face-to-face) meet-up helps. It increases the likelihood of trust. Every person who gets to know more about you and what you do increases the chances of that person sharing it with people in his or her network.

Reason #2: Make New Friends
Another reason why you should join this event is that you’ll win new friends and these people will most likely be your (online and offline) support system. I will be there so that’s already a plus one to your Facebook Friends and a plus one ‘liker’ for your Facebook Fanpage or ‘follower’ for your Instagram account.

Reason #3: Enjoy good food!

The Venue: Cafe Shibuya

The Venue: Cafe Shibuya

I super duper love the food here at Cafe Shibuya. If you haven’t eaten here, then this is your chance to have that lovely brunch at this place. Cafe Shibuya is located at UP Ayala Town Center, Katipunan Avenue.

Reason #4: Learn more about Freelancing and Entrepreneurship
With the fast changing world of Freealancing and entrepreneurship, it is good to stay updated. Conversations with others can be a source of knowledge and information. I, personally, have learned a lot from the conversations that I have had with others!

Reason #5: Avail of the two month FREE PREMIUM Membership with Raket.ph
Raket.ph, our partner community, is giving out a two month free membership to those who will attend the Speed Networking event. Check out their site: Raket.ph

These are the 5 reasons why you should meet up with us on January 24. Spread the news, guys! Bring your relatives and friends. Sign up now at this link: SPEED NETWORKING EVENT
