Show Notes

How many transitions can we embrace in one life? Fact is, we are all in transformation – and what better a transformation than a purposeful one from paycheck to passive income … with equity.

J Kelly Hoey transformed herself from lawyer to startup investor and tech influencer – and author of the book Build Your Dream Network.

Purposeful networking is a big reason for accolades like this:

  • Forbes: “1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship”
  • Fast Company: “1 of the 25 Smartest Women On Twitter”
  • Business Insider: “1 of the 100 Most Influential Tech Women On Twitter”
  • Inc: “1 of the 10 Most Well-Connected People in New York City's Startup Scene”.

EBW 2020 included her on their list of the “100 Most Influential Global Leaders Empowering Women Worldwide”.

A chance opportunity in 2009 to work with a visionary leader of a global business network for women sparked her transition from earning a paycheck to seeking equity. From there she co-founded startup accelerator, then took an interim CMO role with an emerging tech company, and in addition to her portfolio of angel investments, she is a limited partner in two venture capital funds and an advisor to New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.

Here is what you will learn in this episode:

  • How to build your network
  • How to build passive income
  • How to become an investor, even with initially small amounts of capital
  • How to take advantage of the biggest ever wealth transfer in history – women over 50 will control 70% of U.S. wealth and it is a massive opportunity for business innovation
  • And much, much more!
