Last February, Freelancing Philippines hosted its first #CoffeeBreakLive session in four different locations.
“A community is a group of people who share an interest in your passion and who come together to discuss, debate and share views on the subject matter.” – Gary Vee., Crush it!
We did it! We had three simultaneous meetups for the Freelancing.ph community last Saturday, Feb 25th. There’s one more event this Saturday, March 4, happening at 47 East Co-Working Space in QC.
