The “You” Portfolio: How to Invest in Yourself
September 25 @ 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM
This event is part of the Johnson Center’s FREE Brown Bag Lunch & Learn series
In the nonprofit sector, it is common to hear conversations about the importance of cultivating diversified funding streams to build sustainable organizations. But how can we apply that same concept in our own personal and professional lives? How can we build more sustainable financial selves?
According to CNN Money, more than 44 million Americans have a side hustle. The days of depending on one source of income for your financial independence are rapidly waning. This Lunch and Learn session will inspire a new conversation about ‘diversification’ with a focus on leaning in to your talents and investing in yourself.
In this session, you’ll learn:
- Why simply believing in yourself is not enough
- Why “adult field trips” matter
- The power of personal diversification
- Monetizing the diversity of your skill set
Led by: Shannon Cohen
