About this Event

Learn how to navigate through career transitions and growth.

With her popular website Career Contessa, Lauren McGoodwin built an audience of ambitious, professional, millennial women who thought they did everything right—they got the degree, the internship, and even the promotion—but still wondered why they felt stuck and unfulfilled.

Lauren will join Claire Wasserman, Founder of Ladies Get Paid, for a discussion on how we can navigate through career transitions and growth including the following takeaways:

  • Cutting out comparison, shame, and self-loathing
  • How to abandon the elusive “dream job”
  • Embracing your inner questioner, your inner quester, and your inner-quitter
  • Making money moves and taking control of your financial future
  • Tuning out from the noise and tuning into your voice
