That's right, I'm on the dating app Bumble - to be clear, it's strictly business.
Bumble is a location based dating app that allows women the power to communicate first with a match. They have 24 hours before the match is no longer. Founder, Whitney Wolfe (who is also the co-founder of Tinder but left in 2012) announced that Bumble will be more then just a dating app, although it's the same orignal concept it will become a much greater source to network and connecting with people outside of dating. Here's the Bumble breakdown:
Looking for love? Try bumble it's a safe place to form meaningful relationships.
Use Bumble Bizz to network, find mentors and create new career oppurtinuties.
Weather you're new to the city or want to expend your circle, Bumble BFF is the easiest way to make new friends.
Since starting the podcast I've been looking for avenues to meet other women I don't typically read about about in Forbes or INC, women who still inspire and will be taking over the world shortly. Although I want to interview Whitney Wolfe from Bumble I also want to interview Ariel the race car driver trying to break into the industry.
I began putting aside time in my day to jump on the app and look through my possible connections, it's become apart of my daily routine and thankfully I travel a lot for work so I am connecting with people outside of my typical 100 mile radios. I have to be honest, I am taking the opportunity I have with BumbleBizz very seriously but it's hard not to laugh and get giddy when I get a match! I'm swiping left and right all over the place AND MAKING INCREDIBLE CONNECTIONS! My husband laughs at me everytime but he's into it too.
BONUS: Not only is this app helping me connect with new people, it's allowing me to sell my product and pull in new listeners.
I want Say Hello to be the place for every women, of every income, of any dream to be able to listen and take over the world and to be honest Bumble is my key. Welcome to the new way of urban networking.
