Town Hall: Side Hustling Like a Boss (Boston)

  • edX 141 Portland Street Cambridge, MA, 02139 United States (map)

As rents and cost of living rise across Boston, women are finding innovative ways to bring in extra income while holding down a 9-5. With more than 9 million women-owned businesses in the U.S. today, women are also transitioning from part-time side hustlers to full-time bosses.

In this town hall, we'll talk gender bias in the world of side hustles, indicators it may be time to take that hustle full-time, and how to find balance and fulfillment in the gig economy. Our speakers will share their experiences and offer tips around setting up a hustle, marketing your brand, and overcoming the early challenges any new business will face.

Our Panelists:

  • Jay Adams, Co-founder, Brass
  • Amy Parker, Design Director / Co-founder at Woods Creative LLC / Conference Speaker
  • Leora Viega Rifkin, MAPP , Co-founder & Chief of Possibility, Boston's Racial and Economic Activated Dialogues (BREAD) / Freelance Writer / Founder & Head Canary, Canary Rising
