What we're about


This Meetup Group is primarily for women who run a business from home, however all business women and aspiring business women are welcome.

The purpose of the group is for members to:

- to network and connect with other female business owners at meetings and workshops

- learn from business experts who have specialist knowledge about areas of business such as SEO, branding, marketing, etc.

- discuss various areas of business, eg. social media or PR, time management or how to stay sane while running your own business from home,

- get support and brainstorm new ideas. We will occasionally have mastermind sessions in small groups.

It is for the newbie or the more experienced female business owner who wants to come together with other women business owners to network and discuss common challenges as well as upskill themselves and improve their knowledge in various areas.

Guest speakers will either have expert knowledge about a particular aspect of business - social media, marketing, web design, or be a female business owner (occasionally male) who has "been there, done it and worn the T-shirt" and can share knowledgeable insights into starting and growing a business, particularly one they can operate from home.

Join us and let us know what you are looking for and if you would like to get involved with the group, can suggest some great places to meet, or know of anyone who you think would make a great speaker. Click on my name and PM me separately. I would love to hear from you!

I am looking forward to meeting you at our next meetup!



Although this group is aimed at all women home-based business owners, no direct selling of products or services or direct recruiting is allowed at meetings. Informing, educating, and promoting what you do are all allowed.

The main focus of this group is on developing new contacts, supporting and providing value to other members and if they are interested to hear more, letting them know how you believe your product/s or service can genuinely benefit them in a non-pushy or salesy manner.

NOTE: I am not at all anti-network marketing but I believe it is good to have certain rules in place so that it makes it fair to all.

RSVP Etiquette

Members who RSVP 'Yes' but do not respond or turn up to an event at least THREE times will be removed from the group. This is to ensure courtesy, respect, and fairness to all members and myself, as the organiser of Women's Home-based Business Network Meetup group. It is important to have a true reflection of how many members will be attending an event, so that members can make an informed decision whether to attend or not and for myself to know whether it is worthwhile the meetup going ahead. It is possible that a meetup that will or could have less than four members attending will be cancelled or rescheduled.

The Women's Home-based Business Meetup group is the largest 'Stay at Home Moms with a Homebased Business' Meetup group worldwide.
