Finding a supportive and encouraging community as a mum in business can be difficult. Mums are often pulled in different directions, with the need to juggle career, family and home life. Being a working mum can be both exciting and challenging, and having a community of like-minded people can make the journey easier.
Find an online community
The internet is a great way to connect with other mums who are in a similar position. There are many online forums, Facebook groups, Twitter hashtags and websites dedicated to mums in business. Search for a community that has similar values and interests to you. It’s important to remember that not all online communities are safe and secure. Ensure that the community you join is private and secure, and moderated by a responsible team.
Join a local organisation
If you’re looking for a more personal connection, consider joining a local organisation, such as a business network or women’s group. These organisations offer support, advice and mentorship, and can help you connect with other mums in business. You can find local organisations in your area by attending events, reading local publications and searching online.
Get involved with charities and social causes
Charities and social causes offer great opportunities for mums in business. Volunteering your time, skills and resources can help you meet like-minded people who have similar values and goals to you. You could also consider donating money or resources to a charity or social cause you are passionate about.
Use social media
Using social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram is a great way to stay in touch and connect with other mums in business. Posting regular updates, content and interactions can help you grow your community and build relationships with other mums in business.
You can find and join other groups, post content and even set up your own page or group to connect with others.
Attend networking events
Networking events are a great way to meet new people and to learn from other mums in business. These events can help you build your connection with other mums and can also provide valuable opportunities to build your business.
