[1:35] I created this training because there have been so many fluctuations in the job market, stock market, the economy, housing, etc. and it's a good time to put new material in front of you. It's going to be so helpful, inspiring and educational. I will also give you three easy things you can implement right away to get started.

[2:51] The class is not finished and I want to leave roo for your questions. You can connect with me on Instagram and send me a direct message for any questions you may have. I want your input!

[4:13] Why it's so critical to get this information so that you can ride out the highs and lows of the current times. When there is so much upheaval, it's important to stay focused on the

[5:26] The first key will be looking at work differently than we ever have before. Work used to be either "traditional work" where you worked for someone else and got a paycheck or salary, or you had a business. In the class, we will explore how the mash-up model (a combination of work streams) is becoming more of the norm. Today, we have to consider doing a combination of both. This creates more security, which is important for any economy.

[8:50] We'll explore how you can plan for different job types, including what's becoming more popular, called "fractional" work. This is where you can work on small, projects for multiple clients or contracts. I just formed a partnership with an agency where I get access to these jobs and plug people into them.

[9:10] I'll also address the rise of digital or online business and where that fits in. I'll be contrasting the benefits and disadvantages with other business types and even the stock market.

[10:15] The next key is about how to be more prepared to take advantage of these opportunities. I'll give you a free skills inventory just for showing up live. We'll cover the key points on your remote work resume,and how a resume gets "passed" when it gets uploaded into online systems. I'll also cover LinkedIn and how to optimize it to be found by ideal employers or clients.  Lastly, we'll cover the hidden job or client market and how to navigate it in the digital age.

[14:15] The last key is how to price accordingly. We will cover this for salary, hourly, by the project, monthly retainer, VIP day, etc. So you need to be ready to tell people what your price is when they ask. This helps with negotiating your salary or client work. A friend of mine was asked what her "billable rate" was and she didn't know and didn't how to figure it out. You have to be able to answer questions like this on the spot or risk losing out on opportunities. 

[17:00] A recap of the three keys and what we'll go deeper on in the free class.
