Introducing GetSocialBox – Learn Amazing Things From Local Coffee Humans

Let’s face it, we’re all bored at home. So how about I tell you my solution?

Ok, I’ll admit it, the title “Introducing GetSocialBox – Learn Amazing Things From Local Coffee Humans” sounds totally sponsored doesn’t it? But it isn’t I promise!

However, full disclaimer, I’m an unpaid advisor for this extremely new company.

What is GetSocialBox?

GetSocialBox is platform that pulls together amazing people in various different industries and helps them host online workshops, webinars and hangouts. As a consumer of this, you can choose to attend these sessions and learn and network with some really interesting people. If you’re an interesting person you can host your own. Hell, if you’re an uninteresting person you can host your own, I don’t care.

The idea is that there’s a ton of talented people who suddenly found themselves without a job, so they can pivot into teaching people online. Or hanging out with them. Perhaps making them laugh. Or basically anything.

All the ticket sales go to the person hosting the event (minus the fees paid to the payment processor), so it’s a fantastic way to support some amazing people who are looking for new ways to make their mark in their industry.

Gimmie Some Examples

Meet Some Coffee Nerds | by Opinionated Moron, Vancouver Coffee Snob

VCS Logo Square

OK technically I’ve not set this up yet, but I intend to host some regular sessions where for $5 you’ll be able to see me interview a coffee geek or someone related to the coffee industry in some way. We’ll hear about how they got to where they are and you’ll get the chance to Q&A with them. 100% of the money I make off this will be sent to the person being interviewed.

Time and Location TBD.
