April Track Series has begun.

 

For four days, we're hyper-focusing on your business.
Each day highlights important factors of being a creative, being an entrepreneur and being a woman. 

Each track focuses on a core group of women. This allows us to engage and commit to one another over the course of one month. Each day in your track will allow for us to speak with you 1-on-1 and as a group. We are women, we give a sh*t about one another's success. Show up + hustle + let's make magic happen.

 

Looking to join both Tracks? We got you + unlimited coworking M-Th. That's right.
Check out more details here. 

Tuesday Track is sold out - however, if you purchase the coworking membership, you'll be automatically placed into Tuesday Track as these are reserved for these memberships.

Outsourcing Expertise; How To Do It When You Just Can't

led by Miki Reynolds, City Manager @ General Assembly + Kellie Cockrell, Marketing Producer @ General Assembly 

We want to do it all - we want to create the graphics, build the decks, pitch the clients, create the assets, provide the numbers. But that's just not always helpful. It's important to know when to take a step back and analyze what's at hand; is your stress gone haywire but your control takes over? Allowing freelancers, consultants, and teammates allows for your company to grow. Just ask GA.

The Downside of Partnerships

led by Genevieve fish, founder of the know collective, a women's community dedicated to honest talk about mental health + Lizzy Okoro, Founder, Yes Rally + Bunch Magazine

Partnerships can be the coolest thing; you have a buddy, a teammate and an ally as you grow and fail, together. But, it's not always great. It's hard to bounce back when a partnership falls through, someone isn't holding up their end of the deal and you're stuck with the grunt work. Figure out how to get out of a tricky partnership and what to really seek when finding the right "one".

Got Q's? We've got A's.


q: what is Track?

a: Great question. Track is something super near and dear to us because it's how we started from day one. We built a day of connecting with women almost a year ago, that we knew worked best. We call it Track because, like school, you choose the Track that works best for you. Each Track caters to different elements of creating a business; whether you're on Day One or Year Five. We focus on being a creative, being an entrepreneur and being a woman. The idea is that for four weeks, one-day-five-hours-a-week commitment, we can create momentum for your growth, for that confirmation you're on the right Track and the opportunity to grow, focus-group and test your products/services/experiences. We hope you join us.

Want to learn about our March Track? Check it out here.


Q: Can I attend both Tracks?

a: Yes, of course! We have an all-inclusive package available that gives you both Tracks and additional days of coworking. Check them out here


q: when do Tracks close? Waiting for my paycheck!

a: Tracks close on April 2nd, 2017 at 11p. Once Track closes, we do not sell one-off entry on any of the Track speaker events. We do, however, recommend joining us for our Talks that happen 4x a month, listed here. 


q: what is "Choose What You Pay"? 

a: The Choose What You Pay is similar to a sliding scale. We want to meet you where you're at financially. We consider it the honor system, pay what makes sense for your budget. However, there are very limited amounts of the Choose What You Pay packages, so make sure to get the price point that works for you! The full price of a Track ($135), 10% of the profits go to Planned Parenthood.


q: I may not be able to make all the Track days. Will I be able to switch days? 

a: In order to maintain the integrity of each Track session, we aren't able to have days traded. However, we do recommend doing your best to be present for as many as possible to maintain the team + energy being created.


q: does the package include the nighttime events too?

a: Yes! The best part about Track is you get to join whatever event is happening on the day of your Track. We want you to be able to join other communities participating in our events and this is the best way to get to know the extension of the JIG+SAW family.


Where business + creativity collide. 

Let's make sh*t happen.
