Well I said it would happen and here it is.

October 29th, 7pm La Pescadora Restaurant

When I started My Whittier I had a vision and that vision was to start something creative and positive. My blog and Facebook page has lead me in the direction of pushing positive energy in to the city of Whittier. I want to do my part to positively affect the residents of Whittier and help them succeed. With that being said I would like to invite you to the first My Whittier Mixer. If you are someone interested in creating something, starting a new business, learning how to elevate and market your current business or maybe you are just someone who wants to network, This event is for you. Everything starts with an idea no matter how big or small it is all relevant. This is a great way to learn how to get your idea out of your head and in to reality. If you are already working with an idea this could help you move it forward.
I encourage artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, small business owners, crafters, foodies, freelance make up and hair, aspiring business owners, graphic designers, dreamers, positive people looking to network. You are all welcome. Anytime you get an opportunity to learn something that can help jump on it.

I actually carried an image in my head for My Whittier for the longest time. I eventually met an Artist at the Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet and he was able to see my vision. He has worked with me on different projects ever since. Since then I have wanted to put something together that would make it easier for people with ideas to find the right people to work with on their own projects. This hour will be a great opportunity to get together and discuss ideas and together try and crack the code to success!
If you have business cards please bring plenty along.
