About Event

Join us for a free fireside chat about leaving the 9 to 5 and transitioning into a full-time independent career with Hillary Bush, Founder & CEO of Pollen.

Hillary built strong expertise in marketing and SEO at companies like MasterClass and Bungalow before pivoting to consulting, and then becoming a founder herself.

Join us for a candid conversation on her own consulting journey, why she became a founder to help other independent consultants, and her advice for other Tech Ladies considering this transition.

This live chat is for you if:

You're curious about how to leverage your skills as a consultant

You want to work for yourself but don't want to live paycheck to paycheck

You want to build your business and network more strategically

About Pollen 

Pollen is a professional development membership for independent consultants. We help independents build successful and durable businesses through educational sprints, access to experts in residence, a vetted community and a toolkit of practical resources. 

Working for yourself is the new goal for many of us – to have the ability to capture more of the value from your efforts, and to define the way work fits into your life, not the other way around. Over 50% of Americans freelanced in 2023, and that number continues to grow.

Independence is the future of work and Pollen services as the essential community and information infrastructure for this new wave of entrepreneurship.
