Kelly Hoey

"Ready, Set, Take A Career Leap!"

Have you played it safe with your studies and career choices
—but dream about that idea that gets you excited? Are you
thinking about taking a courageous leap with your career, business,
or life? Kelly Hoey's empowering strategies will help you land
cleanly (and successfully!) on your feet. In 2009, Kelly Hoey
was 20 years into a solid career in law. This “nice girl” had already
gone from scenic sleepy Victoria, British Columbia to a fail-safe
legal jobs in Toronto and New York: as Lehman Brothers and the
economy collapsed, she was prepared to weather the economic
downturn in her cubicle. Instead, Kelly took the leap, and became
the change she wanted to see! Kelly took a gamble with her career,
left the law, and became an angel investor, board member, and
trusted advisor to hot tech startups. Within five years the press
deemed her everything from: “1 of 5 Women Changing the World
of VC/Entrepreneurship” to “100 Most Influential Tech Women On
Twitter” and “100 NYC Tech Influencers You Need To Know.”
In the span of just a few short years, Kelly went from “attorney”
to “influential investor and author.” Her strategies--including
developing her networks, cultivating diverse professional
relationships, and building a "Yes Me" Fund—will set you
up to successfully take the big leap of your dreams.
