Dream, Girl tells the stories of inspiring and ambitious female entrepreneurs, from brand-new startups to multi-million dollar companies. It's time we stop telling girls they can be anything they want to be and show them what it means to be a leader.
Through in-depth interviews and access to the daily lives of five incredible entrepreneurs, Dream, Girl, paints a complex picture of what it means to be a leader.
The women in the film speak openly about the struggles and triumphs that come with entrepreneurship for women - from discrimination to self-care to what it means to start a family and a business at the same time.
Nothing is off-limits.
Jess Jones is a quintessential networker and a driven and passionate entrepreneur who thrives on connecting and supporting Australia's regional businesswomen of calibre. As the Founder of businesswomen’s community Soar Collective, and as a Speaker, she has transformed the way business owners network with each other.
Jess was inspired to launch the Soar Collective because she saw the need for a comfortable and open environment that allowed women to come together and be brutally honest as well as giving them the opportunity to identify collaborative opportunities. She was frustrated with her experiences at ‘traditional’ networking events where guests seemed to be competing for who were busiest and more accomplished. Through Soar Collective, Jess has developed a unique networking concept that fuses development with networking opportunities. Each Soar Collective event is meticulously crafted by Jess ensuring relevant and insightful sessions for all members.
