Upcoming Women Grow Business Events (And How to Submit Yours)

by Tinu Abayomi-Paul on November 7, 2011

We’ve got two events coming up this November for Women Grow Business, one live, and one virtual.

It also occurred to me when observing shares in Facebook and on Twitter that many community members have their own events to share, so I’ve decided to try a little experiment, which we’ll discuss momentarily.

First, let me update you on our latest news.

The Next Live Women Grow Business Event is Almost Here

By the time you read this, there may be only one or two seats left to our 3-in-1 strategy workshop for building your business.

Just in case there are – or if you’ve signed up and wanted more concrete ideas of what will happen that day – here are some reasons why you should attend.

A common complaint of entrepreneurs is that it’s difficult to both market your business and actually run your business at the same time. To complicate matters in this day and age, there are constantly new tools debuting, and even those are in an ongoing state of flux. Staying on top of all the new information, or even choosing what you’d do best to focus on is a constant struggle.

And yet you can’t just stop getting new customers, or using new tools to keep your current customers from going to your competition, or pretty soon you won’t have a business any more.

In our Rotating Digital Strategy Workshop, we’ll help you come up with a strategy that hits all the high points of the marketing you need to do for your business, and suggest ways to keep on top of all the daily tasks you need to attend to in order to execute it successfully.

This live workshop takes place this coming Tuesday, November 8th – you can sign up here.

UPDATE: Our wonderful Lisa Byrne has been able to secure extra seating. So if you hurry, new seats have been added. But you MUST sign up in order to get a guaranteed seat. This is a workshop, so you’ll need it.

Next Tweetchat Features Community Member Thursday Bram

The following Monday, we’re going to have an online chat with Women Grow Business Contributor, Thursday Bram of Hyper Modern Consulting. She recently launched a resource for Freelancers as well.

What is freelancing?

The common definition is working in a career that isn’t tied to one company, an independent worker. Freelancing is closely tied to entrepreneurialism, but the two aren’t necessarily one and the same.

You can’t help but think about how closely the two are linked, however. And freelancers often have amazing insights that many different types of people in business can learn from, whether they are top level corporate executives or small business owners.

So set aside your lunch hour from noon to 1 pm on Monday, November 14th for our online chat with Thursday. (Our chats will always be held the 2nd Monday of the month if you want to mark your calendar from here forward. Hint, hint.)

If you’re not familiar with Twitter, don’t worry, you can still follow the chat, even without being logged in, although I recommend signing up for an account now in order to be able to send in questions, and save your favorite insights.

How do you follow Tweetchats?

  1. Log into Twitter, Tweetchat, Tweetgrid, or any other Twitter tool that lets you isolate a hashtag.
  2. Follow our Twitter hashtag #wgbiz.(In Twitter you can use the search at the top of the screen, in Tweetchat or Tweetgrid, once you’re logged in, you’ll see a space asking for you to enter the hashtag at the top of the screen.)
  3. Arrive as early as 11:45 a.m. to introduce yourself and share what your company does, as well as to meet the other chatters.
  4. Make sure you’re following the host, in this case me (@wbgiz is the official channel), and featured guest(s) if any, in this case Thursday Bram (@ThursdayB), so you can send questions or follow up with them later.
  5. Have fun. :) Twitter chats are meant to be informative, sure, but also lighter than a teleconference or webinar.


Need Help Promoting Your Women in Business Event?

I hope to see you in attendance at as many events as you can make it to- the Women Grow Business community appreciates all your support. And so do I.

This column won’t just be for Women Grow Business events in the future. If you have an event you’d like to see included, email the address on the Be Featured page with the word “event” in the subject line.  Please include the details of the event – what it’s called, a brief description, who is holding it, whether it’s free or paid, time, date, and location. Please be explicit even if the location is online – is it a webinar, online conference, Twitter chat?

A link directly to a page that has more details or a public page where attendees can sign up would be also appreciated, but is not required in the case of offline events.

We can’t include all the ones we get, but if we believe they could be of interest to our audience, we’ll do our best.
