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.

THE JILLS are joining forces with the fabulous Brava Magazine gals at the 2017 Women's THRIVE Career Workshop Series:

Intrapreneurship: How Thinking Like an Entrepreneur Can Spark Explosive Results Within Your Organization.

Intrapreneurship is on the rise in the US and around the world, and it’s no wonder! As entrepreneurial thinking offers a way to spark creativity, fix problems, build collaborations, and get things done effectively, efficiently and based on evidence, why not bring this mindset into every organization? And why not start with you!

JILLS Cofounders

Join THE JILLS OF ALL TRADES™ Co-founders, Megan Boswell and Corinne Neil, as they start you on a path to becoming an intrapreneur. Through collaborative discussions, hands-on activities and guided instruction you’ll be able to bring an entrepreneurial mindset to your work, and your organization, no matter your position or your profession. In this workshop you will learn the basics of the entrepreneurial mindset and chart a course for implementing these strategies in easy and practical ways.

  • Learn why leading entrepreneurs like to ‘get out of the building’, and how you too can improve customer engagement, spark innovation, improve job satisfaction, and build better collaborations and partnerships with this philosophy.

  • Explore and utilize the Business Model Canvas to better understand the business of YOU and proactively reset your career so you can be more effective, efficient and energized at work.

  • Reframe your thinking about failure and understand the benefits of growth mindset thinking, why it’s critical for entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, and how it can help you solve problems and open you to new experiences.

  • Understand why collaboration is the new competitive advantage and develop techniques for improved collaborations.

  • Discover the importance of community as a foundation for implementing successful agile processes and productive feedback loops.  

  • Learn to embrace problems as the critical first step for innovation.
