*** It's a great day for this event! See you tonight! ***
UPDATE #4: There are still 8 spots left, so you may claim a spot by arriving early with exact cash. Also, there are usually 9 no-shows for this event, so you just might be able to join us. Make sure to come early with exact cash.
UPDATE #3: I will not be able to make this event, but my excellent Event Organizer, Cecilia, will be there on my behalf. Please be ON TIME. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. Cecilia will see you there!
UPDATE #2: The early-bird price has ended and the ticket price is now $25. Looking forward to seeing you there!
UPDATE #1: There are 9 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $20 to $25 when the early bird spots are gone or before Sat. Jan. 18th (whichever comes first). To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Sun. Jan. 12th. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot. I hope to see you there!
Have you tried Internet dating unsuccessfully, with enough stories to write a book?
Has everything you've done and tried seem to gain only seemingly fruitless, and increasingly frustrating, experiences? Do you sometimes wonder if finding a life partner will be unsuccessful?
If this sounds like you, you are probably finding lots of ways to blame the quality of the dating pool, or possibly yourself. But there is nothing wrong with you as a partner, nor is there really a lack of great singles in the DC area.
I have recruited Atieno Bird, an ICF-certified coach with 15 years experience, and founder of Two Bird Coaching LLC, to show us the things we can do to prepare ourselves to remove the blocks that keep us from experiencing what we are looking for and receive a loving partnership into our lives. Join us for this informative, inspiring, interactive, and fun seminar as we learn:
• Typical "dating trap" mistakes singles make
• Learning the difference between wanting something and being ready to have it
• Seven stellar secrets to letting love find you
• One thing - not appearance - that makes you irresistible
• How to take only the suggestions that help you become more (not less) yourself - and how to tell the difference
• How to keep your partner wanting more of you - for years to come
• Open discussion - Q & A
We are privileged to have Atieno Bird, MA, CP, an internationally certified coach, and principal of Two Bird Coaching LLC, as our speaker. With over 15 years experience transforming people to be their best, Atieno has coached over 100 private clients, 30 leaders from the Middle East, and 20 large election campaign teams. Her list of clients include the World Bank, NASA, the Small Business Administration, and Accenture.
The seminar will go from 6 - 8pm. Then from 8 - 9pm we will mix, mingle, and network amongst ourselves and with Atieno.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FOOD AND DRINKS WILL BE PROVIDED. We'll have turkey, roast beef, and ham sandwich platter and wraps to eat... and water, soda, diet soda to drink (no alcohol)!
The normal charge for this event is $40 elsewhere. We've got an early bird special for this event of $20! The first 55 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Sat. Jan. 18th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $25. We have a LIMITED number of spots so make sure to RSVP early and make payment to get the early bird price!
Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment. When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment.
Come join us, tell a friend, connect with other professionals, find out your dating strengths, and learn the seven steps to letting love find you. Hope to see you there for this important and very helpful seminar!
Metro and Parking
The closest Metro is Gallery Place - Chinatown (Red / Yellow / Green lines). I suggest Metro / cabbing if you can. I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.
Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):
Please follow the instructions below for making payment (if payment by smartphone doesn't work, please try your computer). Payment at the door will be permitted only should the event not sell out. Most of our events do sell out, so we recommend you secure your spot online early. If you make payment for less than the current ticketed price without prior correspondence, your RSVP will be removed.
1. Select "Yes" under "Will you attend?"
2. Enter the number of guests coming and click "Finish RSVP"
3. Click "Pay Now" at the top of the event posting near the ticket price per person
4. Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button
5. If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"
6. If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal
We will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup.When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.
Refund Policy & Ticket Resell
Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled. Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale. Work out payment between yourselves, and send us an email letting us know the full name and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot.Thanks for understanding. =)
