Mumpreneurs: Virtual lab to build your ideal career, your own regenerative startup, or to join one.

by grahamboyd-evolutesix Premium (Classic) | p2p

Many mums have multiple jobs - one as a mother, and the others in a business or as a professional. Some of you are facing a major dilemma: between your old / current work; or to really change careers; perhaps even start your own business.

Do you want to reinvent your life, but don’t know how or where to start?

Making the “right” decision and understanding your options is a challenge. But there is one thing that you are sure about; your new life as a mum is changing you and the way you view the world. Whether you’ve already modified or paused your career to have and raise children, or hope to, do you want something better than simply trying to fit yourself to the professional world?

You have good reason to want to. Our uniqueness remains hidden too often. In the UK, of women in full time work: only 31% of women remain in full time work; and only 13% get promoted or move to a better job (vs. 26% of fathers) in the 5 years after childbirth. This goes deep: according to a 2019 study in Germany, only an average of 39% of Germans were in favour of mothers of schoolchildren working full-time!

While we’re all painfully aware of the reasons we mothers choose to scale back our careers, or leave the workforce altogether, the general consensus is that we are not satisfied with the options available.
It is no wonder why many of us don’t want what standard business careers offer.

In this pre-startup programme, designed especially for mums and mums-to-be, by Evoluter (an emerging revolutionary ecosystem of startups addressing global challenges), we give you all the insight and resources you need to find out who you can become, and what your next steps will be. This is right for you, if you are longing to make an impact, create a sustainable world your children will thrive in, looking for stimulating conversation, and to be a part of a community of practice that will value your creative input, ideas, and business skills?

Programme Description

In this hands-on, experiential virtual lab (vlab), you will become part of a community of practice committed to creating new ways of having a fulfilling life. One that combines: generating healthy income through fulfilling work suited to your uniqueness; integrating your roles as mum, partner, and friend; and making a better world for your children to inherit.
Sign up now if you see the current crisis as a golden opportunity for you, to investigate and design the kind of work that will be at the core of the life you want to live.
We will fine-tune the content, and schedule it, to suit you, as soon as we have 10 people registered.

Languages: English, German, and French.

At the end of this vlab you will have taken a decisive step forward in your journey to reinvent yourself and your life. You will have applied Design Thinking and Business Modelling to take the first steps toward creating the life you want. This programme is not just another superficial self-development workshop.

You will get:

  • A closed group of mums like you, safe peer to peer mentoring.

  • Set up your own first draft business concept (Design Thinking).

  • First steps towards reinventing yourself (Design Thinking).

  • Understand how you can enter the startup world.

  • A mentor for your own personal and professional challenges.

  • Tools and strategies to make better decisions and harness conflict.

  • Insight into the new and most important ways of running profitable businesses, inherently human and inclusive. Applications of sociocracy and holacracy as well as new legal structures.

  • Learn how to set up your own business in a way that will automatically create the regenerative economy we need to address the climate emergency, and protect against new crises.

  • Pdf and paperback of Graham's book "Picasso and Einstein: the Economy, Leadership and You"
