We’ve all heard the name Sophia Amoruso. She is the Boss behind GirlBoss. Creator of the movement #GirlBoss, Amoruso is never short of coming up with genius ideas to support her fellow female entrepreneurs. We for one at Boss Women Rule can’t wait to see what her next projects are. She’s on a high and she’s not coming down. At least no anytime soon. So what is her next move? What genius idea has she come up with now? Well, it looks like she’s planning to compete against LinkedIn.
LinkedIn: The Power to Connect with Professionals
LinkedIn is the most popular platform on the market at the moment when it comes to helping professionals find and connect with other professionals. It’s basically the Facebook for professional workers. You can find job postings, connect with other people who work in the same industry then you, get referrals and basically just connect with professionals. However, for many, LinkedIn tends to be more traditional.
“LinkedIn is a place that was built for another era of work, when the work we did was very traditional. Their product is really centered on that type of work: ‘Here’s nothing about my character and everything about where I went to school, and where I worked.’”http://ad.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/show?id=z57KGn*/h8U&bids=467035&type=3&subid=0
GirlBoss Collective: A New Network for A New Era of Workers
Times have changed and today’s workforce is no longer like it used to be. For starters, the younger generation is more focussed on entrepreneurship then joining the corporate world. Additionally, there are more women in leadership roles then there were compared to just a decade ago. Women are finally taking over the workforce and becoming more confident on their path of entrepreneurship. This era is all about #GirlPower. If there is one thing that Sophia Amoruso is all about, it’s Girl Power.
That’s where GirlBoss Collective comes in. Launched in January of this year, GirlBoss Collective is a professional social-networking platform that helps women who don’t have the traditional work experience connect with other professionals that can help them in their career. Ideal for freelancers, those who have multiple part-time jobs or large gaps in their resume, GirlBoss Collective helps women build connections that can benefit them professionally. Although it’s majorly female focussed, GirlBoss Collective is available for women and men. So, if you’re a freelancer looking to make connections to increase your client base, GirlBoss Collective is for you!
Since its release, GirlBoss Collective has been extremely popular! And not just for women. GirlBoss Collective has as much men subscribers as it does women. It’s exactly what the new generation of workers needed and Sophia Amoruso was smart enough to create it. Perfect for young entrepreneurs, it helps connect, build strong relations and create great partnerships and collaborations.
