Achieving New Goals

  • Jan 21, 2014 · 7:00 PM

New Year New You! Come to this event to network and discover how to achieve more this year. Elance is giving a workshop Achieving New Goals. 

In the “old days” (i.e., 10 years ago), launching a startup was a daunting prospect. You needed office space, accounting tools, proprietary software and dedicated servers. Then you needed to raise venture capital and hire a management team.

Today, it’s possible for business startups to launch their ideas and take their products and services to market much more quickly. In fact, being able to launch quickly is a key to success. One of the biggest game changers for startup businesses in the past 10 years has been the emergence of cloud technologies and services.

With the power of the cloud, startups can access low-cost, highly-effective services and people that enable entrepreneurs to spend fewer resources building their business infrastructure and more time innovating and growing their companies. 

Elance is where people Work Differently™. The world’s leading platform for online work, it’s where businesses find and work with teams of freelancers. 

Join us and learn first hand from a fellow entrepreneur who gained competitive advantage and achieved her goals by using Elance.


7:00pm - Networking

7:30pm - Workshop + Q&A

8:15pm - Networking continues

Local Elancers (freelance talent) will also be invited.

If you're currently seeking a local talent (i.e. developer, designer, marketer, etc) please let us know!

Snacks and drinks will be provided. See you then!

    Also, wanted to let people know about a related event through UCLA and ask for your help:

    We (UCLA) are having 1-day conference next Thursday, 1/23, on Mobile Health Technologies among At-risk Communities. It will be held at the California Endowment (downtown).
    We'll have a great lineup of speakers and have a few spots available for the community, in case you are interested in attending
    (for more info on the program or if you want to request an invite, see

    Also, we'd appreciate your help as we are looking for someone to help with social media marketing to create a twitter hashtag this week, attend the conference, and tweet about it.
    Must be someone with an understanding and interest in technology and a solid twitter following in this area). Please contact me directly ([masked]) if you can help.
