What we're about

Calling all female entrepreneurs who are ready to build a powerful community of like-minded go-getters and take their business to a new level!

Being a business owner is awesome - you get to be your own boss, do what you are passionate about, make your own hours, etc… but it can also be hard. Many of us spend more than half our time on marketing and we can find ourselves on what feels like a never-ending lead-generating goose-chase. But what if you could enjoy all that entrepreneurial awesomeness without having to worry about where your next client comes from?

At WBN, you can!

If you are looking for new learning opportunities in a nurturing and supporting community, that will help your business grow, you are in the right place! Learn - Support - Grow

What Is WBN?

WBN is a group of female entrepreneurs on a mission: to support and learn from one another! We are a network of professional women dedicated to the development of business and professional growth - for ourselves and for our fellow female entrepreneur.

We strive to empower women through the development of business opportunities and knowledge. We develop businesses growth through a structured, positive, and professional “word-of-mouth” Referral Program. We develop knowledge through the sharing of our unique skill sets and experience with our fellow members at WBN events.

WBN Referral Program

First and foremost, we are a professional referral network. That means our #1 goal is to support one another in generating new referral business through word-of-mouth/referral marketing. We use the power of leverage to maximize our referral and learning potential. With only ONE member in each profession (i.e. one lawyer, one accountant, one financial analyst), etc… our community fosters business development opportunities that benefit from each other’s unique professional experience and background.

Membership is free, and based on equal opportunity. If you have something truly unique to offer that no one else in our community currently does, we want to hear from you! Start by clicking the JOIN button above and telling us a bit about yourself. Come out to a meetup event and speak to our members. If you are interested joining our referral program, request an info package and/or application form by sending our leadership team a direct message or speaking to to us in person at one of our events.

WBN Events

In addition to a being a referral network, WBN hosts a number of public events (such as those in this meetup group). We offer a variety of educational, professional & social events that provide opportunities to develop skills and knowledge to advance your professional growth. Meetings include guest speakers, a member spotlight, open networking, group exercises ("share circle"), and opportunities to talk about your business before a group of your peers. Come share and learn from each other’s stories, build professional relationships, learn new business growth skills, have fun and watch your business grow!
