Side Hustlin’ to Mainstream Dreams

Living in a corporate world and exploring other avenues

Starting your own business doesn’t have to mean immediately leaving your current job behind. Many successful entrepreneurs and professionals recognize that you can keep both, at least at the early stages. In doing so, you learn more, and faster, than would otherwise be possible, and enables you to custom-craft a career that’s uniquely interesting and meaningful to you.

Creative Zone partners with The Gaggler to bring you an exclusive panel discussion featuring four incredible businesswomen who have gone through the journey of starting a side hustle in their corporate job, to transitioning over fully to realize their dreams of having their own businesses.

Forming the panel are Achasah Zipporah and Suegoli Sirjani – Co-Founders of Women Who Thrive – the UAE’s leading women’s networking platform, and Jen Serak – Wellness and Life Coach. We are proud to have Monica Malhotra, CEO of The Gaggler, and proud long-standing client of Creative Zone, moderating the session.
