Copy of BRAVA Magazine THRIVE Conference

THE JILLS will be joining forces with the BRAVA Magazine gals at an all day Women's Empowerment Conference. THE JILLS will be leading a workshop called "Work Solo-Not Silo", geared for Independent Entrepreneurs.

In the next 10 years, 50% of the US workforce will be working as an independent - consulting, creating, and collaborating with companies, colleagues, startups, and anchor businesses. Are you ready? 

More and more as we move deeper into the ‘gig’ economy, people will be operating their own businesses, working from spaces they chose, marketing their skills and talents, and hunting up their own work. It can seem like a daunting task, but in this presentation, Co-founders of THE JILLS OF ALL TRADES™, Megan Boswell and Corinne Neil, will offer up tips and tactics for ‘shoring up’ or ‘setting up’ as a solo-preneur while sharing the joys of working as an independent.

  • Discover the importance of creating community and connections to build your business and learn ways to tap into both.
  • Learn how to shape your personal brand and practice the skill of self-promotion.
  • Start teaming up to scale up by discovering professional synergies at the conference and beyond.

 

53 million professionals in the U.S. already work for themselves as freelancers, consultants, independent contractors, and B2B entrepreneurs. Trends predict that in 10-15yrs, 80% of the workforce will be project-based. Are YOU ready? Join us for our workshop geared for Solo Professionals setting-up or sureing-up shop at the BRAVA Magazine Thrive Conference on April 28th, 3017.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S ENTREPRENEURSHIP DAY

JOIN US IN MADISON WI

ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14TH 2017

THE JILLS OF ALL TRADES™ is joining forces with fellow women entrepreneurs in Madison, WI to host a day of engagement, connecting with new women, and lifting each other up. It's what THE JILLS is founded on, and we are thrilled happy to help the cause and amplify our voices.  Right up our alley!

On the national level, the Women’s Entrepreneurship Day mission is to empower the 4 billion women across the globe to be catalysts of change and uplift the 250 million girls living in poverty globally. In addition to our mission of empowerment, we are committed to gathering a think tank of inspiring women leaders who can amplify our message of expanding businesses with socially good initiatives in communities around the world.

On the local level, WEDWisconsin’s mission is to empower, celebrate, inspire and support women in business and leadership by igniting women leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs to initiate startups, drive economic expansion and advance communities.

The purpose of this WEDWisconsin is to help assist women in Wisconsin to grow their businesses by empowering and inspiring them to overcome the economic, knowledge and connection gap. Ninety percent of women-owned businesses employ only the owner and the rest struggle to employ between 3 and 5 employees. It’s a struggle to break this barrier. Part of the struggle is acquiring start-up capital, but there’s a resource and knowledge gap too. WED works to solve this problem by creating a network of resources and information to equip women to succeed.

CONFERENCE DETAILS

Part of a global movement, Women’s Entrepreneur Day Wisconsin will be held at Monona Terrace in Madison, WI on November 14, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Chill with THE JILLS: Wisconsin Women in Tech

 Wisconsin Women in TECH

Wisconsin Women in TECH

THE JILLS is chuffed to be invited to speak at the upcoming WOMEN IN TECH, meet-up. By building community and linking smart women together, the WOMEN IN TECH organization is right up our alley. 

https://www.meetup.com/Madison-Women-in-Tech/events/243665007/

WOMEN IN TECH is a group by and for women; our events cater to women and are a safe space for women; we ask that men not attend unless they are the guest of a woman attending.

We are designers, entrepreneurs, lab technicians, programmers, project managers, recruiters, database analysts, QA professionals, robotics engineers and everything in-between. Join other Madison women interested in learning, teaching, and building a community of women in technology! 

Likewise, we are a child-friendly community; even when we're not set up for it specifically (which we try to do as often as possible), you're surrounded by fellow women who understand the pressures you face as a professional mother, and would never discourage you from bringing your children to one of our events. Maybe they'll grow up to become women in tech themselves!
