Strangers To Friends Smile Swap Experience

Put it on your calendar to connect!

Want to meet friendly people… who also want to meet people?
Want to learn new ways to start conversations?
Want to feel seen and heard… and have fun?
Let’s skip the small talk and instead, smile and story swap! Unplug from your phone and plug into people. When you meet someone who relates and “gets” you, it’s game changing! Believe it or not, we all have more in common than most realize. But, to discover the common denominators, it starts with showing up for ourselves so others can show up for us too.  Ultimately, creating connection begins with… you.
At this event, you don’t have to feel pressure about being “hit on”  or “sold to” – this is about, being YOU!
Carlyn Shaw, the Founder of Strangers To Friends ( and the Whoever Smiles First Wins Movement ( will facilitate a  "Non-Networking" style of authentic connecting, inviting you to “lead with you, not what you do” and trust that the right people show up at the right time. 

AND… this is a SPECIAL SMILE SWAP SEND OFF as Carlyn joined TrustedHousesitters ( and will leave St Pete to embark on a Summer Spreading Miles Of Smiles! Come say HI and before she goes!
