We saw two problems in the workforce…
Our win/win solution
Prowess Project helps caregivers return to the workforce or pivot in their careers via upskilling, networking and access to jobs. Our 40+hr Online Business Manager (OBM) Certification trains on how to specifically serve as an OBM for business consultants and coaches. As they are moving through the program, our platform is gathering 100s of data points on their skills, work-style, communication, etc. We use that to match them with the BEST consultant client for them.
Why OBMs? Because of what they call their “patchwork quilt-like” background. Experience in operations, marketing, sales, tech, etc – all that they are using now to run PTAs, volunteer organizations, places of worship, to name a few. Prowess is harnessing that talent, vetting it and delivering to consultants & coaches like you to run your business – so you don’t have to.
Our GOAL is to get 5K back to work.
How it all began . . .
After graduating from The University of Texas at Austin (hook ‘em), Ashley spent fifteen years in tech marketing and entrepreneurship in Austin, TX with a two-year project in London.
Women empowerment, especially in the workplace, has always been very important to Ashley. One of the biggest issues that continued to baffle her was women pressured to choose between her career and her kids. Why are the only mainstream options – continue a 40+ hour workweek or stop working completely to become a caretaker?
And out of the frustration that a “gray area” didn’t exist, Prowess Project was born.
But Ashley knew there was NO way that she could solve this problem along. She needed a right-hand woman who she could hand off her vision and make it a reality (foreshadowing for OBMs – yup, you guessed it!).
Ashley spoke with 1000s of fellow entrepreneurs and they needed the same thing. And who better to solve problems & get sh*t done than caregivers who fight more fires before breakfast than most people do in weeks. Ashley was inspired by Leah Steinkirch, who’s 25+ years in operations, sales and counseling fit the description perfectly. Together, they are the perfect visionary/integrator duo.
They’ve bundled Ashley’s needs with Leah’s how-know and are helping other caregivers step into OBM roles and then match them with their ideal visionary.
