Description

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in this event.

My name is Ksenia Poulber, and I am a photographer, located here in Dear, Brooklyn.

Two months ago, I decided that I needed to radically change my interaction with the world around me. Being a photographer and a designer means endless hours in front of the computer, working and reworking those concepts, pictures, designs. Being an independent artist also means that I am in business for myself if I don't figure out where my next client comes from, no one will.

If you are in business for yourself, you know that it can be a lonely road. Your 9-5 friends are not feeling your pain, they don't have your problems, and they are probably thinking, why don't you just get a job? Right?!

Well, I know this is true for me. And although I have become pretty savvy in social media and a lot of modern technology, it doesn't by any stretch of imagination substitute the real person to person interaction. And meeting people in New York is not the most simple of tasks.

So I decided to take the fate into my own hands and start this group. I want to meet other women, who are like me, creative, independent and passionate about the work that they do, and if this is you, please stop by to say hello! :)

Here is a little history for you:

I first ran this event page in July, 17 people signed up, 1 person showed up. I sat at the bar with my little sign, feeling pretty awkward. She came. We chatted briefly, and she gave me a line of advice: Don't give up!

I decided to listen, and set another event August, 17 people signed up, 6 people showed up. You know what was the most exciting part of it, the diversity of countries, ages, and professions.

Now, Happy Hour number 3. If you have been meaning to come, I hope you finally make it. If you are just finding this page, I am looking to meeting you.

I would love to have this Happy Hour grow past the initial introductions, and into a time where we can come together and share the challenges (and successes) of our businesses, and to help each other get to the next level of growth. I'd love to know who my neighbors are!

If this sounds good to you, please, stop by! I only have one request from you, if you signed up and can't make it, please cancel. This way I don't look pathetic sitting at the bar with a sign all by myself waiting!

Bye for now.

I hope to see you there!

Sincerely,

Ksenia
