You want to be an entrepreneur. You are wondering: Will it work for me? Where do I start? Is my business idea a good one? In this Jam Session, Career Catalyst Sable Badaki will answer all of the questions you may have about quitting your job to start your own business.

In this session, we will discuss:

  • Various ways to create business revenue while still working

I have always heard business women use the term "lifestyle" business and I have always wanted to learn more. Looking forward to this discussion.

Great inquiry Monqiue! Lifestyle business is simply one that fits your lifestyle. As women, we have some many hats we wear plus we have ambitious professional aspirations. Too many times our aspirations and our personal lives collide rather than support. How would it feel to have a business that actually supported the lifestyle you wanted to live? A business that gave you time for your hobbies, family and special interests. A business where you could work from home, in an office or on the beach - whatever your inspiration comes from. Can't wait to discuss more on the call.
