Overview

How to Make the Most of Your Skills, Passions, and Future

In an economy marked by the volatility and uncertainty of corporate layoffs, downsizings, and outsourcing, traditional full-time employment is declining.

Increasingly in its place are short-term assignments, contract and consulting work, and freelance assignments – a new way of working called “The Gig Economy.”

In this eye-opening program, Diane Mulcahy, author of The Gig Economy: The Complete Guide to Getting Better Work, Taking More Time Off, and Financing the Life You Want, narrows the lens even further and focuses on how women, more than ever before, can leverage this new way of work in order to more favorably (and more easily!) juggle the multiple roles and hats they have always worn.

What You Will Learn

  • How to manage the risks of “gig work” while maximizing the rewards
  • Ways to thrive in this new landscape by cultivating multiple sources of income, skills, and a financial safety net
  • Secrets for how to finance time off between gigs – travel, volunteer, or pursue your passions
  • How to regain power over your calendar and control over you time
  • Ways to increase financial flexibility by reducing fixed costs and boosting income and savings

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
