Can I bring vouchers or products to show off my stuff?
Yes, please do – we have a table designated to show off your wares and vouchers and it makes for a good conversation starter when its time to network. You also may make a sale.

Do I need to wear a business suit?
We have a very relaxed atmosphere. The intention of these meetings are to provide a safe space for ladies to connect and network in business and to share their successes and faceplants while also expanding their knowledge by learning something new for their business, mindset or life.

Why should I attend?
Putting a face to the name and meeting people is great to keep you at the forefront of their mind for referrals and also to build the “Like, Know, Trust” relationship.

Do I have to attend every meeting?
No, not at all – this is why I don’t have a subscription fee. Just attend the meetings that call out to you. Look at the guest speakers for something you’d like to learn or even the Event Sponsors for a chance to go home with an amazing lucky door prize.

“I feel too anxious/not confident enough to attend.”
Feel free to come early (I get there about an hour beforehand) if you’d be more comfortable to meet me first and see the room and how its set up.
I have also created a free hypnotherapy recording to give your confidence a boost before the meeting that you can listen to.

What happens if I meet someone at the meeting and didn’t get a chance to get their details?
After the meeting, I will do a post in the Facebook group to thank everyone who attended and give them an opportunity to share their businesses and details with us so we can stay connected.

How do I become a Guest Speaker?
Guest Speakers share their “genius zone” with the group for about 30-45 minutes. 
Come along to a meeting and then let me know if its something you’d be interested in doing and what you’d like to share with the group.
Preference is given to those who attend events.

How do I become an Event Sponsor?
Event sponsors are limited at 2 per event.
I would recommend being an event sponsor to an event you are attending so you have the opportunity to talk about what you are contributing as a lucky door prize for the meeting.

Are your events child friendly?
Yes, please feel free to bring your kids along – I will have my youngest with me at future events.

Are the tickets tax deductible?
Yes, I believe so however I am not an accountant so I would speak to your accountant/bookkeeper to make sure.

What are you Covid-19 requirements?
As we are at Emu Sports Club in their function room – we follow the venue’s covid-19 restriction requirements. So you must sign in at the venue before coming into the function room.
