Strategic Collaborative for Moms who are also Professional Women or Entrepreneur

Network Build Grow is excited to announce our newest Strategic Collaborative...for Moms who are also an entrepreneur or a professional. Whether your kids are 6 months old or 18 years old - if they are living at home and you are trying to also work or run a business - this is your group!

The struggle and the juggling act are REAL! And you are not alone...

We want to provide a space for you to collaborate with other professional Mom friends who get the struggle and the value of the business aspect of you life.

Topics like:
Time management
Balancing work and family
Mom guilt!
How to keep your focus
Imposter Syndrome and more will be discussed.

A Strategic Collaborative is a time to bring together business owners and entrepreneurs to mastermind around issues, challenges and triumphs within a certain industry or affinity group.

There are many unique and challenging obstacles for people who want to build a business on the side of a full-time job. This group is designed to not only provide ‘after-normal-working-hours’ events and ways to build your network, but a variety of experts and resources to help you get your business off the ground or to the next level.

This Collaborative is a part of the Network Build Grow family of events and will be open to Non-Members until February 2022...so take advantage of this time to not only surround yourself with like-minded professionals but to experience the difference at NBG.

In Person HUDDLE - Be Our Guest!


A HUDDLE combines the best of networking and building relationships with mastermind and sharing of ideas, opportunities and resources.

Be sure to REGISTER HERE: https://pages.networkbuildgrow.com/in-person-huddles

This unique format encourages you to not only expand your network and circle of influence but have a place to present challenges, obstacles and gain feedback from others in the group.

It is like having a table full of business coaches, a board of directors and several mentors to help you not only build your business but grow you circle of influence.

On the flip-side...you get to showcase YOUR knowledge and expertise by helping others with their challenges and giving your feedback to them as well...it is a win-win!

It promotes celebration of successes and encourages you to push yourself to achieve the success you deserve.

Come with a challenge to share, a question to get feedback on and an open mind to get creative and share your expertise and knowledge with others as well.

In-Person HUDDLES are the last Thursday of each month at 11:30 am. PLUS TABBRIS will give you a day-pass to work from their wonderful establishement!
