Post-COVID Pivot: New Ways to Make Money
Presented by: Elaine Quinn and Caroline Guntur
Webinar Program: Grow your business and find new ways to serve clients in any environment, by packaging and selling your skills and expertise in new ways.
Now that we’ve experienced the COVID-19 quarantine, we’re all thinking about how to do business despite industry changes or physical logistics. More than ever the time is right to leverage your skills and experience in new ways, beyond limits of billable hours or being physically present with clients.
Our experts will provide insights into alternative methods to grow your business and earn income using your unique experience and professional skills. They will share real world examples of developing content-based products and programs that sell. If you have ever dreamed of writing a book, developing an on-line class, conducting workshops or positioning yourself as a topic expert, this program will offer guidance and examples of how to achieve those dreams!
