    “The Art of the Side Hustle”

    Presenter: Beth Bryce

    Tuesday, September 18, 2018

    Today more than a third of Americans are working in the ‘Gig’ Economy – mixing together side hustles, short-term jobs, contract work and freelance assignments. The new American dream is evolving in a way that allows people to access the lifestyle they want, focusing more on a quality of life consisting of time and experiences rather than a quantity of stuff. If you have an entrepreneurial mindset this workshop is for you. Come to learn the four types of gigs, how to build a portfolio and what’s the easier way to start a Side Hustle now and pursue the career and lifestyle of your dreams today.

    “Principle Centered Leadership Practice for Performance, Growth & Empowerment”

    Presenter: Kimberly R. Houston

    Tuesday, October 16, 2018

    Principle centered leadership is a critical framework toward the practice of guiding professional behavior, building strong relationships and sustaining career and personal success. Women as a group intuitively exude positive attributes and innate characteristics which can significantly increase their leadership acumen, leverage their team contributions and spark principled action across in all areas of their lives – business and personal. This interactive session will encourage participants to explore their “female assets and strengths” through an action focused lens of principled leadership practice. How can women use these “female virtues” to bolster the energy and spirit they bring to teams, to their leadership assignments and ultimately to their long-term life and career?

    Participants…come prepared to understand that “girls’ principles” are a new power strategy for growing leadership acumen, confidence and presence.
