Mastermind Groups - Masterminds are small groups that meet at regular intervals to set goals and take their businesses to the next level. They have proven to be a priceless resource to provide guidance, motivation, and support to keep you moving forward. Masterminds stimulate creativity and innovative thinking through interaction with other women entrepreneurs from diverse business backgrounds.
Monthly Meetings – Each month we meet to discuss the latest in business trends and share our experiences. The goal of the meetings is to provide a positive and uplifting environment for Members to meet, connect, share and learn. Attendees meet many seasoned, successful women ready and willing to help. Self-esteem is a critical failure component for businesswomen; so surrounding yourself with like-minded women who can guide, motivate and inspire, helps to build confidence and problem solving abilities, which is vital to business growth.
Speakers - Whenever we encounter speakers whose expertise and knowledge would be helpful to our Members, they are booked to present at meetings. Featured guest speakers assist Members in professional development, and with things such as time management, marketing, technical assistance, and accounting procedures, to name a few.
Visibility – Members are included on our website directory as well as our Facebook page. This helps with brand building and is a great resource for consumers and clients to find the products and/or services they need.
Referrals – The roster of Members can be a quick and reliable place to get and give high quality referrals.
Build Relationships - Networking isn’t just about promoting your business — it’s about building relationships. As we are a female-only networking organization, it a place to feel warm, welcomed and safe. A place where Members can share the juggle and the struggle that women in the workplace often encounter and get honest feedback in a thoughtful and insightful way.
An Energy Boost – Being a woman entrepreneur, professional, or worker can be exhausting! Being a part of a supportive networking group boosts your energy and allows you to return to your business with renewed confidence and refreshed with newly-acquired skills, ideas, and business relationships.
