    $/hr: TBA
    hrs/week open: 2-3 hrs I am new to Portland, by profession I am a graphic designer, who loves photography and anything design. I went to design school for special 5 years program at University of Cincinnati, college of design, architecture, art and planning. At the moment, looking for models to trade with, they don't have to be professional models. I simply like to work with people and shoot my hand made scarves and designer jewelry pieces for my web sites, and also at the same time do glamour photography. If anyone would like the trade, I provide some web quality images to be shared on Facebook or portfolio if we are a good fit together.

If you have whimsy in your style, a love of children's books & an interest in conservation, would you please send link to your website to [masked]

    Thank you. Barbara

    These PDX Classes that one teaches -- is that what this Sunday's meetup is?

      It's more like you're hosting your own event. There is no scheduled meetup, but this website doesn't make it easy to list things like this.

    Skill offered: Creating an Elegant Online Presence
    Name: Alison Stump
    Skill: Expert HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, PHP, Wordpress, SEO
    $/hr: $30 - $50
    hrs/week open: 4 events/week
    contact: [masked]

    If you are a creative you need to have your work online but hiring someone to build you a solid web presence costs thousands of dollars. There are hundreds of solutions to do it yourself but most require at least some knowledge of web servers and basic programming. If you don't have any presence online I will sit down with you and talk you through the best options for your skill set and business. ($30/hour)

    If you are already online but needing some help with a bit of code or a Wordpress theme I will look it over with you and help you figure out what you need to fix it. ($30 - $50 based on complexity of the code)

      This is great, though for a trade, CSS/HTML for illustrator is compatible, as those are definitely higher rate skills for trade. Let's everyone keep in mind that if there are trades, that they're of a reasonable approximate value. Sally, please put a starting $/hr so people understand what the slide gradation might be. Thanks!

    No venue, as I would expect these all to be a pretty broad range of experiences. The class offer-er has to 'create the class' as I have below.

    April 23, 2013

  • Patricia

    I like it! Do you have a venue in mind, or is the location the responsibility of the class offer-er?

    Skill offered: Networking like a pro
    Name: Amy Dubin
    Skill: Networking Strategies
    $/hr: $50
    hrs/week open: 3 events/week
    contact: [masked]

    Tired of going to networking events where it seems impossible to meet people and even if you do, almost 'nothing' comes out of it? Learn to network from a pro and make the most out of your valuable time. You'll reduce the amount of time/effort you spend networking, hate it less and present yourself so work starts coming your way. I go to a host of networking events, so we'll find one that suits you and I'll talk 'ya through it. You'll learn everything you need in just one session.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
