Women are fantastic communicators, and one of the most exhilarating experiences I have felt in my working life is that buzz of energy, ideas and engaging conversation when you have a room of very talented, genuine, diverse and creative women in one place.
Through in some fantastic food and it tops my list of fun things to do.
Networking is such a great thing to do when you are in business or work for yourself, it builds connections and relationships and is a great resource for learning, business building and friendships.
Living on the gorgeous Sunshine Coast there is this vibe of entrepreneurship, creative spark and gutsy women all carving careers for themselves in various fields. They are amazing women to meet, to network with, to read about and to hear speak.
We have fantastic events and groups for networking on the Sunshine Coast too, but being a mum, and a single mum working from home mum with a toddler and a school aged child and for me it was nearly impossible to make the events.
I love to connect and network with other businesswomen so one day talking with a good friend who was exactly the same as me, also a mum in business and loved networking but couldn't make the events we decided to make our own social group to compliment the ones already out there and bring more Sunshine Coast businesswomen and work from home mums together.

So SunCoastBizWomen was launched! It became obvious right away that we were not alone, at all, in finding the current events hard to get too, the response we received right away was very exciting.
We wanted this to be accessible to all, so we made it a free group, no membership fee's, no event fee's, nothing to commit too and as we are all about supporting and promoting business where we live on the glorious Sunshine Coast we decided to hold our monthly meet ups at a different Sunshine Coast eatery each time as well so we are promoting lots of the fantastic food venues on the coast too!
The energy around the group feels so good,
It is so positive and vibrant.
|Networking really is that much fun!|
On the blog we are going to interview Sunshine Coast business women, showcase local eateries and our events, host guest blog posts by businesswomen and share business tips.
Thanks to La Dolce Vita
