The S.W.E.E.T. Network is a New Jersey based group for women in transition who would like to start their own business. What is a woman in transition? It's a woman who is moving from one life circumstance to a new one. If one of the following categories fits you then you're in the right place!
- A woman with young children looking to earn income
- A woman looking for work due to unemployment or being out of the workforce for a period of time
- A woman changing jobs or looking for a new opportunity
- A woman who relocated and is starting over
Here, you will find support, motivation, knowledge, and encouragement from a group of women just like you trying to balance work and life and keep their sanity! You will be connected with passionate, focused, and determined women who are looking for a chance to do what they love, help others, and reach their full potential! We all want to be able to enjoy life without worrying about finances and job security and we understand that having our own business can help us do that. In our Network, you'll receive tools for personal and professional development. We understand the importance of getting your life in order so you can be successful in your career. So you’ll receive tools specifically for women: managing your time and emotions, getting organized, creating goals, and business start up resources.
There will be a fee for each workshop/event to cover operating costs or you can become a member of the network to save on monthly events and resources. Every month we will have a workshop and opportunities to socialize/network and support each other in reaching our goals. You will also have access to The S.W.E.E.T. Academy where you will be able to take our online e-course at your own convenience.
Join us to start living the S.W.E.E.T. life!
