Detailed Description

Update

Betterfly is the world's most diverse marketplace for people who want to better themselves and others. We connect talented individuals, known as Betterists, directly with the people who want their skills - making it easy for people to learn, look and feel better.

A better way to find the right people: You won't see any companies in our search results, just skilled people. Why? We think that knowing the name of a great teacher, trainer or stylist is more important than knowing the name of a great school, salon or spa. Our exclusive focus on people means users can search efficiently and find exactly who they're looking for.

1000+ ways to learn, look and feel better: Our Betterists offer fun, challenging, random and every day services in more categories than you can imagine. Take a class from a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer, try out a new look with a fantastic hairstylist or get that raise with the help of a career coach. You can do almost anything on Betterfly.

Better. Together.: Betterfly is a lively community of people who believe in better. We come together because we know that better makes people happy. We connect, discuss, share tips, set goals, ask questions, meet up, build thriving businesses and celebrate better in all its forms Join us!
