One of my new 10-week coaching clients asked me how I handle working alone most of the time and if I ever wished I shared an office with other women. I thought this was a great question so wanted to share my answer with you.
Yes, sure, of course! Sometimes being your own boss can get lonely, or just feel like you are all alone at times. But in reality, there are hundreds of thousands of women just like you (and me) all over the world and most of them here in the USA. So where do you find them and how is the question right?
So my big thing is joining specific (AKA groups of cool savvy women) networking groups. I have to admit, I hate “typical” networking meetings where you wear a name tag and walk up to strangers and say hello my name is…. I have hand picked a few that work for me and I have learned so much from the women I meet there.
Once you make some friends either in-person or virtually, you can ask around to see if anyone wants to be Mastermind partners with you. This is done by phone, usually 2x a month. You pick an amount of time each person has (I do 30 min each) and use the time to either ask for advice on something, get suggestions about your next move, basically what ever you need help with. A mastermind partner is a great way to stay accountable to someone.
Here are a few quick suggestions of places you can meet other Entreprenettes on a national level. These are groups that I either belong to, or have belonged to in the past, and have found really helpful.
1. Savor the Success – it’s a very involved online community for entrepreneurs and has in-person mastermind meetings in some cities. If you don’t see your city listed reach out to ask if you can start one.
2. An Empowered Woman -They offer Web TV & Radio shows, Tele-Calls, MasterMind Meetings, Coaching, Seminars & Special events.
3. Your local Meetup.com groups may have some entrepreneurial meetings that could be fun. I go to one in LA from time to time and have made some good contacts.
Let me know about the groups you belong to and how you avoid feeling alone.

In this podcast, I really get to know Becca Brown. She is such an enthusiast about her brand and products that you totally see why Solemates are a girl’s best friend.
Who’d a thunk that heel caps would be such a big thing right? We’ve all been to grass party events, and weddings where your heel just sinks down and you know your shoes are ruined…. Or they need an emergency trip to the shoe doctor right?
Becca and her co-founder Monica had the same experience over and over again until they had their ah-ha moment…..and grass events were never the same again!
She and I chat about how they started at night and on the weekends, got on Shark Tank, didn’t take the deal, pursued sales on their own, are now in over 10,000 stores and still do the sales themselves. Whew!
Let me know in the comments below if you want the link to listen. I’ll send it over. ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

It took me years to figure out how to set the right price for my product line when I first started out, so I can imagine you might be in the same situation. If you are not sure if you are making any money, then there is a good chance you’re not pricing your products correctly.
