Are you a Mum in Business?
The Penrith and Blue Mountains Mums In Business Association (MIBA) Networking Group held their first meeting in Glenmore Park for the year last month. The business networking group was well attended, with many local businesswomen coming together to show their support.
“The Penrith and Blue Mountains MIBA Networking Group meets once a month on a Tuesday from 10:00am to 12:00pm and we currently have held our meetings at Daily Break in Glenmore Park, which is owned and managed by a member of our group, Susan Keith. I became the Event Coordinator for this area in November 2018 and the meetings have grown since our first meeting in December. At our recent meeting in March, we had 24 attendees which has been our biggest meeting yet” said Kylie King, Event Coordinator of Mums In Business Association (MIBA) – Penrith and Blue Mountains.
During their recent meeting, attendees listened to a guest speaker who spoke and gave advice, hints and tips to the members on how to personally and professionally develop themselves and their businesses. They also networked with each other and shared their successes and ‘faceplants’ in a supportive and encouraging environment that was child-friendly. All ladies are invited to come along, whether they are mums, mums to fur babies or don’t have kids at all.
“My future plans are to continue to grow the group and encourage more people to come along and attend.
The Penrith-Blue Mountains is such a large area, so it would be good to hold multiple meetings in a month and encourage more ladies to jump outside their comfort zone and come along. One woman is strong but get 400 local ladies and 38,000 ladies online internationally together supporting her and each other and its truly incredible” explained Kylie.
“It can be overwhelming juggling a business, family life and for some ladies a fulltime/part-time/casual job as well. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet up with other ladies in similar situations who understand the mumpreneur life. MIBA’s networking events for the Penrith and Blue Mountains area are all about ensuring our attendees are leaving inspired, motivated and empowered to grow their businesses and can collaborate with the connections they have made through networking” she ended.
