I am so excited to get this group going and to be your new organizer!!
My mission is to create a group that helps women build each other businesses. 3 hours a month to focus on an aspect of your business. I think networking groups are awesome but this group is going to have a slightly different format and vibe. Think of this group more of a Women’s business support group than a networking group. When we support each other the networking comes naturally. Running a business is tough and sometimes we need to step away from the to-do lists, Facebook messages and emails and focus on the bigger picture. New ideas that can really help our business if we take time to grow. Together, women for women will be a network of like-minded business ladies here to empower and raise each other higher.
Yes there will be a referral part of the night but we’ll call it meet & greet. It will give members a full hours of chatting, giving their “30 second elevator speech”, catching up and building relationships. It also gives us all an hour to arrive ;)
Then a 30-60 minute presentation to help the group. We are looking for presentations that will help promote our businesses and raise each other higher. We all have talents where we excel and this forum will give us an opportunity to present them and help other women with aspects of their business. For example, I am great with social media. I get Facebook, I get instagram, I get Pinterest, I understand web stats and I am good at making them work together. My presentation to the group would help you learn different aspects of the web. Each month we will focus on a really juicy business topic or life/women empowerment type topic and then present it. Some nights may just be one person and some up to 3.
Following our presentations will be a 30-60 minute discussion about the topic. This is a chance to turn our chairs in, ask questions, give opinions and apply these topics to our own lives.
If you are serious about making your business succeed and looking for a sisterhood of women with the same desire, you have found the right group.
SHARING IS CARING – Please bring one snack/drink to the meeting. One bag of pretzels, one package of cookies, one jug of apple juice, etc. Nothing more than $5 and don’t worry about having one for everyone, if we all bring a little, we’ll have plenty!
Our meetings are held monthly at the NFIA building, located close to the Neshaminy mall in Oakford. learn more about the NFIA www.neshaminyfalls.org
Our first meeting will be a networking meeting where we meet and greet. There is no presentation this month but we will have a great discussion. Please come prepared to talk about 2 things in your business that are really working, it could be anything from your new policy you put in place to Facebook ads. And come with 2 things that are not working like employees or marketing, etc.
Through this discussion we will get to know each other, our businesses and get a better understanding of the struggles that we have. This will help the group schedule presentations that make an impact.
This group is open to all women with a small business. Unlike typically networking groups it does not matter if we already have a photographer or real estate agent or Pampered Chef presenter.
