Connecting You

Many people in our network have had their livelihood disrupted in the past few weeks. Some are trying to ramp up their remote work, some are slashing prices in hopes of getting more work.

Amid the uncertainty and toilet paper shortage, we wanted to come up with some way to help everyone survive. Having worked in a few different fields such as tech, marketing, event management, journalism, and music, we might be able to connect people across industries.

If you offer any of the services below, or are in need of those services, get in touch. If there’s a service you provide that I haven’t listed, please let us know too.
