9 Lives for Women is a career advisory firm for current and returning professionals. Through individual coaching services, live and online seminars, a popular blog and speaking at large events, founder Kathryn Sollmann helps smart, highly educated women integrate work and life through many ages and stages.

Kathryn created MAKE WORK FIT LIFE events, most recently attended by 200 mid to senior-level, current and returning professional women in Stamford, CT. was held in May, 2016 in Stamford, CT. Through these events (and a book she has underway, (Make Work Fit Life! Caring for Family & Financial Security in A More Flexible Workplace), 9 Lives for Women has launched a new, pragmatic dialogue on women and work. Kathryn believes that predominant "lean in" and "can women have it all" discussions link work primarily to the pros and cons of "get to the top" career advancement, skirting the issue of career sustainability and long-term financial security. The real question is whether women can fund a retirement that could last 30+ years—as well as all of life's "you never knows". The 9 Lives for Women mission is to keep women working.

A frequent media resource on work+life issues for the past 15 years, Kathryn has been interviewed on The Today Show, on NPR—and by Mika Brzezinski for CBS News. Her award-winning blog has been read by highly educated, accomplished current and professional women around the world and carried on Huffington Post, Linkedin, Forbes ​and other major sites.

This Find A Flexible Job & Make Work Fit Life course draws on Kathryn's recognized experience as a recruiter, career coach and work+life expert.

22 Short, Self-Paced Sessions, 12 Quick & Easy Printable Worksheets, Links to Recommended Reading, & A Discussion Forum Where Your Questions Are Answered By Recognized "Make Work Fit Life" Expert Kathryn Sollmann...all for total fee of $149.

Is Your Long-Term Financial Security Airtight?

Chances are the answer is no. Very few people have enough money saved for a retirement that could last 30 years or more—and all of life's you never knows.

In the 9 Lives for Women Motherhood & Career Ambition survey, a startling 73% of women in their mid 30s to mid 50s report that they have already experienced at least one life "you never know" that posed a huge financial challenge. Things like divorce, death or disability of a spouse, the major breadwinner's job loss or inconsistent earnings and unexpected financial support for up to four aging parents and/or adult children.

Work is an insurance policy against life "you never knows"—and any amount that you earn, save and invest adds up to financial security over time.

Even women who live in affluent communities need to work toward financial independence—and be role models for daughters and sons.

Today there is more than one traditional, corporate, more than full-time way to work, and this course gives you the tools find flexible work and make work fit life!
