Shedoesthecity is excited to partner with Make Lemonade, Toronto's workspace for women, to co-produce quarterly events targeted at freelance creatives, entrepreneurs and self-starters looking to make the jump to self-employment. (Basically, we’re creating the professional development event series we’ve always craved.)

To kick off this exciting new series, the inimitable Monique Bryan, a highly sought-after success coach who has been helping women cultivate their passion-fueled professional journeys and dream lives for over a decade, will lead you through a 2-hour workshop, including both a moderated discussion with a powerhouse panel of industry leaders, as well as breakout sessions designed to help you streamline your business with a smart strategy.


Who are you and what does your business do? Have you outlined a communication strategy? What are the steps you are taking each day to move toward your dream business? Or are you spinning your wheels? These are the types of questions you’ll answer with the help of Monique and her team of experts, including Women in Passion and Purpose (WIPP) Founder Bianca Harris, Communication Expert and Strategist Davida Gragor, Leadership and Lifestyle Coach Nicole O. Salmon, and Editor and Content Strategist, Aya McMillan.

Combining moderated discussion with group exercises, attendees will leave with an action plan to help overcome their major roadblock to success, as well as Monique's popular #JDB (Juicy Delicious Business) accelerated blueprint to map out steps for reaching long-term goals.
