Christina Glickman shares how to build a brand authenticallyBuild Your Brand Authentically: 3 Steps to Unapologetic Confidence as a Solopreneur is on Wednesday, October 13th, 12:00pm – 1:30pm.

Building a brand can be tough. Doing it in a pandemic is tougher. We’re so excited about our next speaker that we added a rare October meeting!

Entrepreneur, TEDx speaker and author Christina Glickman – think Oprah meets Gucci – will join us to talk about confidence and building an authentic brand, two things that are a struggle for many freelancers.

Christina will share how she built her brand, her way, within the pandemic despite some seemingly difficult hurdles. And she’s got a message for you.

Christina will inspire you with her 3 steps to “unapologetic confidence”:
  • Show up every day. For you.
  • Surround yourself with a community that lifts you up.
  • Don’t tell me what you can’t do, tell me what you can do.

Think of this event as self-care + professional development + motivational booster shot. As always, we’ll start off with a bit of networking to meet new people and catch up with friends.
