Elance Fireside Chat Session in Islamabad
A lot of people have been asking me about the 3rd part of the “Top 10 ways to earn money online” series. Frankly, I have been planing this for over two months now. The 2nd part about blogging was published on August 12 and I had promised a few guys to publish the next part but due to my attachment with the new startup called Centangle that I have co-founded with a few university mates; it didn’t came till day. I got a few emails and some messages on Facebook for contribution requests too. I highly appreciate the concern of interested people. I promise that I will find a way to let you guys make use of this space to share your thoughts but I expect little patience from your side.
Cutting my excuse here, I wanted to tell you that the 3rd part will be published soon. I was invited to this chat session in Islamabad a few days back. I am seriously thinking to get more insights and add more to the article if the event is useful enough. If you are in Islamabad and thinking about making your name in the freelancing industry, you should attend this event. There is limited space so you need to sign up before the seats are filled. The event “Elance Fireside Chat Session” is being held at Kuch Khaas in Islamabad from 3pm-4pm on Saturday 15th November, 2013.
The speakers include Haris Zulfiqar who has recently sold over 40,000 copies of a WordPress theme worth over $1 million USD. Other speakers include Haris Nadeem of Android Pakistan and A Q Azhar of BizExcel. The event is being hosted by Saad Hamid of Sizlopedia who is also representing Elance in Pakistan.
I am now officially promising to publish the 3rd part, that would be about freelancing, after this event 🙂
