As a solo-preneur I have worked for years on my own – even as my business grew – there I was on my own – late at night invoicing, booking travel, handling every aspect of marketing, social media and networking (and not always well!). It wasn’t until I began to partner with others – hiring staff, partnering with Foundations and other small business owners did I see how it boosted my business. I realized how much brain power I was missing out on.
Women in Cloud helps you connect with others, provides mentorship support, and challenges you to clarify your purpose and your value.
As a speaker this year at the Women in Cloud Summit, I will be talking about Partnership and why it should be your #1 priority. How many of you are working tirelessly on your own?
Maybe you are unsure how to partner with others, or are not getting the full benefit from the partnerships you have. You’re not alone!
63% of people who want to start their own business, often make the mistake of hiring their friends. Without clear rules of engagement, those experiences will scare you away from partnership. In my talk, I will be sharing key tips about how to form and maintain great partnerships. Together, we’ll be interactively looking at your strategy to build your partner relationships and get the outcomes you desire.
Partnership is also crucial for collective action towards something that is essential to the growth of any business: economic inclusion. Economic inclusion means doing everything you can to pave pathways of opportunity for women to have access to technology and support around the globe. This access to resources, ideas, and leadership will give women the opportunity to participate in the global economy and build the business and partnerships to step into the life they dream of.
This year, I am excited to create a new vision of the future for my Creative Genius tribe and I anticipate Women in Cloud to be a big part of that picture. Purchase tickets and come meet us. The summit is a place with ideas and connections, and I look forward to interacting with everyone who is looking to grab their goals with both hands!
