10.) How To Make Friends As A Busy Adult

If you have trouble making and keeping friends as an adult, then this webinar might help you. Making friends when you’re an adult is different from when you are a kid or a teenager. More importantly, when we were young, our friendships got created almost on their own. Now, we realize that we need to be proactive about it. We find that leaving our social lives to chance doesn’t work. We need to re-learn how to make friends. On top of all that, we need to have a social life that we can fit in our already-busy schedules. This webinar is based on the “Advanced Guide For Making Friends,” that you can download for FREE HERE Presenter: Paul Sanders of
