Being an entrepreneur can be a lonely existence. With long hours and hectic schedules, it can be incredibly difficult to find time to spend with loved ones. What’s even worse is that finding and making friends becomes downright impossible without apps. Fortunately, there’s a wide range of social apps that are designed to help you disconnect from work and meet people with similar interests.
With so much of our lives spent working, it’s easy to forget to interact with others — whether it be through social events, hobbies, or other activities that truly enrich our lives. Here are some popular apps that’ll get you off the internet and out socializing:
Meetup connects people who share the same interests. It shows upcoming events and activities in your area, so you can meet with others who are interested in the same event.
It’s not only a fun way to meet new people, but it provides you with instant conversation material to build up social skills and relationships in a much more comfortable way. Meetup also encourages business networking by allowing you to create and promote professional networking events.
When you’re working and traveling, it can be hard to find the time to schedule social events. Time to Enjoy prevents you from missing out on some great social experiences by comparing your work schedule and calendar with events that are coming up.
This way, you won’t miss out on events that will get you out of the house (or the hotel), and you can meet new people or old friends despite my hectic work schedule.
GoTribe is both an online and offline community designed to make fitness and wellness a social event and a fun lifestyle. Now in use in over nine countries and 12 states, the app connects you with “workout buddies” so you can provide each other with encouragement and come together in person to get in shape.
You can use this to help balance work with your physical health and find other like-minded individuals to go exercise with when you’re on a business trip.
This app is great for foodies. With Supper Club, you can set up a group outing to a new restaurant or host a social dinner party at a nearby eatery.
The app also hosts its own events that you can attend in various cities around the country. You can use it to organize dinners for my employees, special occasions, and even client meetings.
Golden connects you with volunteer opportunities and other people who enjoy volunteering. You can even choose to invite friends to volunteer for an upcoming event.
This makes it easy to get out there and do something good for your community while allowing you to meet new people who share the same passion for social consciousness. You can even encourage others in your company to volunteer, so you’ll use this app as a way to set up those events.
City Socializer is another great way to locate people who share the same interests as you. The app provides an extensive list of social groups and organizations that you can join in your city and information on upcoming events by interest.
On business trips, you can have a great time finding other people who love doing what you do. It’s a great way to fill in some free time rather than sitting in your hotel room.
