The critical thing for women is that they need learning that gives them not just the what, but the how, and to have support along the way. And even more important, it needs to be delivered without hype and advertising.
Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) February 16, 2012
The Daily Thrive is a new online membership community for women executives and entrepreneurs to get daily blasts of highly-specialized learning, complemented by coaching and feedback from experts on negotiation, productivity, balance, personal finance, everyday technology, and nourishment. The site officially launched on Monday, January 30th, 2012.
Over a year in the making, founder Lisa Gates explains that her intention with The Daily Thrive was to curate a comprehensive learning experience that would be practical enough to "read and run" and compelling enough to inspire interaction and community. Of the site, Gates says, "Think of it as a women-only mastermind class with the occasional kick in the pants."
A project of She Negotiates, a negotiation-training company that closes wage and leadership gaps for women, The Daily Thrive is a response to the persistent themes and needs expressed by the company’s students and clients. "My business partner Victoria Pynchon and I created a list of these themes from evaluations and surveys, and we discovered a whole new set of learning needs,” says Gates. “Negotiating for a raise is one thing, but with increased income women also want to know how to put the brakes on their spending and develop better investment habits.”
One of the biggest concerns for professional women in a fast-paced world is how to maintain balance to allow for family, exercise, down time, self-care and nourishment. With its team of experts, The Daily Thrive addresses these issues of productivity: navigating work flow, tracking emails and daily tasks, making better use of everyday technology, and carving out time for networking and business building.
“The critical thing for women,” says Gates, “is that they need learning that gives them not just the what, but the how, and to have support along the way. And even more important, it needs to be delivered without hype and advertising.”
The ad free, no hype, online resource kicks off its launch with a free two-week trial membership. For more information on The Daily Thrive and its team of experts visit: http://www.thedailythrive.net
