Designing your career, your way. Real-talk for Real Results. Collaborative, never Competitive
By International Executive and Women's Advocate turned Serial Entrepreneur
Ashley Connell - CEO & Founder, Prowess Project
The Pursuit is for women who are serious but stuck when it comes to taking the next step in their careers. Designed for career-returners, -pivoters and -shifters, you’ve exhausted the run-of-the-mill job boards, courses, gurus, and want a true partner and program that speaks to your precise professional problems.
You’re educated, experienced and sick of feeling alone, overwhelmed and undervalued when trying to land a job, close a freelance client or start your business. You want all your skills; professional, interpersonal, and transferable; acknowledged, celebrated and incorporated into your career plan so that your next work situation keeps you in your Zone of Genius - where work barely feels like “work”.
When you envision your fullest, happiest, most fulfilling life, what do you see?
I’m Ashley Connell, CEO of Prowess Project, an online platform that helps caregivers and career-pivoters upskill, network and get access to family-friendly jobs. In just three years, our team has helped 1000s (!!!) of women secure work - in ways that worked for them and their families.
I wasn’t always a CEO, but I’ve always been a dreamer. For 15 years, I did the Corporate thing, pouring my blood, sweat and tears into my jobs - moving half-way across the world for my employers. And was happy to do so. YET, I was making decisions about my life and work based on this background anxiety of how I was going to have kids and continue this career that I loved.
Harvard Business Review reports that when a woman is out of the workforce for 3 years raising children, she loses 37% of her compensation power forever, and this happens to 43% of women. And yet, 97% of them would return IF they had access to flexible jobs. After reading that, I became obsessed with solving this problem - spending every waking moment researching, asking, interviewing, trying to find solutions. Each time I was coming up empty-handed.
No one had cracked it. So was that person going to be ME? But who was I to solve that problem? Was I qualified? Ready? Able? I’m sure you can all relate to that… then the dreamer took hold and I thought, Why not me? Why not this big, hairy problem? Why not change the world so that women don’t have to choose between a career (dead-end or non-stop) and a family.
Fast-forward to now. I’ve built a business, Community and mission that rallies around women so they can have professional, personal and financial freedom. All while bringing a baby girl into the world.
I’m living my dream. Tackling the hairy problem. Raising my baby girl. Lifting up women everywhere. Pinch me.
As a new working mom and career pivoter, I see you. I know you have it in you. We can do this. We can live the lives we were meant to live. Together. Let’s get started.
