Being a woman in business can be frustrating – how about that glass ceiling, eh, mums?! This is why it’s always a comfort and a support to share your experiences with fellow businesswomen, and gain strength and insight in this way.
If it’s inspiration you’re looking for, then let us introduce you to WIN – the Women’s Inspire Network.
WIN is the brainchild of Samantha Kelly, who set up the network as a means of connecting businesswomen all over Ireland. What began as a simple hashtag in 2014, grew into a safe place for female entrepreneurs to talk, network and, most importantly, LEARN!
Speaking at the launch of WIN’s new membership packages, Samantha said: “With social media and the world of online changing day by day, we need to keep ahead of our competitors and keep learning while we build our businesses, but it’s also important to have people you can talk to about issues that arise and not stay in our own heads.
“Sometimes, just knowing you aren’t the only one experiencing these issues can make all the difference.”
Thousands of women agree with Samantha, as the latest figures for WIN will prove. Indeed, the network counts more than 7,000 active members who meet and inspire one another at coffee mornings, conferences and training seminars.
And with access to a panel of mentors, Samantha wants her existing and prospective members to know that they are not alone.
“You can connect with others just like you from your kitchen table or office without having to organise childcare; save time by not having to travel or get all dressed-up, while you build your empire!
“Also, as we are social media-savvy, if you tweet us, we respond!”
We are forever talking about the importance of the ‘community of motherhood’, and this is one example of an organisation that is taking the concept, and running with it.
So, mums; whether you are planning on launching your own company, or you already have one up and running, it looks like WIN could offer just the support and confidence you need.
