About
Circles

Promote Her Business (PHB’s Private Networking Circles can best be described as the epitome of “Networking HER Way.” They are an empowering, one-of-a-kind, intimate gathering that you won’t find anywhere else. They happen each month and have 2 empowering, income-encouraging formats.  

Private Networking Circles typically run anywhere from 1.5-2 hours and are intentionally designed so that more Circle Sisters remember you and can make better referrals to you!  

*It’s required to be an active PHB Member to be in a Circle: Once you’re a PHB Int’l Member, there is no additional charge to participate in a Circle, and there are no additional fees to start a Private Networking Circle with women you love spending time with.  

Private Networking Circles

what you get

Be setup for success from the get-go. Meet with a Circle Organizer to get the most out of your Circle experience: Ask your most pressing questions, get up-to-speed on how to promote yourself, and learn how to communicate with your Circle Sisters.

*Within first month of joining

Increase your understanding of The 12 Principles to Promote Her Business and share best practices, stay accountable for the monthly Healthy-Her Challenge, and participate in Win-Wins using PHB’s proven Advanced networking formula. 

This is HER way to have all members really get to know all members of their Circle.  1 to 2 women each time sign up for a “Get-To-Know” Speaking Spotlight. They have up to 20 minutes to share 1 thing personal, 1 thing business, and be interactive and engaging.

That’s all! No stuffy presentations, and presenters can allocate the time however they see fit. It’s an opportunity to step into your feminine power of being creative and memorable {Your Way}.

Relationship Circle is an uplifting way to get to know the real woman behind the business, ask her questions, and do more business and referring to her! This format also includes a Healthy-Her check-in. 

When you first join a Circle, you’ll be given a special New Member Spotlight.  After which point, you can promote your business at all your Circle events, as well as be on the constant lookout for how to best support and promote other Circle Members too.

Speak up during member announcements, and as applicable, share your flyers, special promotions and/or events in whatever ways your Circle agrees to (such as an Online Promotion Calendar, Member Table, etc).

Private Networking Circles have the option of choosing a “Favorite Cause” which is supported throughout your Circle’s year (which is stated on your Circle’s Everything sheet). 

Circle Members ask a Cause Representative about the best way to support them. Then, they pick a specific goal and continually talk about their progress until they hit or exceed it:)

Circles can do quarterly socials like Happy Hours, holiday parties, arts & crafts, game nights and more.  Members are encouraged to come up with ideas and co-host events.

Inner Circle Promise

4 Steps to Circle Success

1. Be a FREE Guest

All PHB Private Networking Circles have a “1X Free guest” policy. At the end of attending a Circle event, a guest will be asked if they’d like to request to join the Circle. If so, members will vote, since each Circle is “lovingly selective” about making sure Circle Sisters are the right fit.

 

2. Get Onboarded

Within the 1st month of joining, meet with your Circle Organizer to get the most value from Circle from the get-go: Go over the “Everything” spreadsheet, ask questions, and learn how to communicate with your Circle in between events (such as through FB private group chat). 

3. Mark Your Calendar

Make attending Circle a fun priority, and put it as a repeating event on your calendar now (with the link to attend). If you can’t attend – or will be late – send a proactive group message – so all Circle Members know where all Circle Members are (not just the Organizer).   

4. Build Deeper Relationships

Building Win-Win relationships start at regularly scheduled Circle events and deepen in between events. So, get to know other ladies through socials, going to each other’s events, and scheduling more Win-Wins with each other.   

FAQ’s

1X Free Guests get invited to a Circle in any of the following ways: 

  1. They are directly invited by you — and other Circle Sisters — who think they’d be a great fit for your Circle’s unique culture:) 
  2. They fill out PHB’s “Circle Interest form,” so Circle Organizer(s) can reach out to them when they have Circle openings for new members.
  3. They see PHB’s Find a Circle page & ask a Circle Organizer to be a 1X Free Guest. Organizer(s) can accept or lovingly deny a request depending on Circle niche & openings. 

*Please note: Circles are intentionally invite-only – and require voting in new members – so you can create the Ultimate Circle of trust and support.  

The goal is to create referral partnerships & biz friendships of a lifetime .. and only have members in your Circle that you believe in and want to promote, hang out with, and do biz with.  Circles are about quality of relationships over quantity of Members.

Just enough time to build deep, win-win, profitable relationships and friendships… and not a minute more (grin)! 

A private Circle meets 2X per month and alternates leveraging 2 simple, fun, and results-accelerating formats for building deeper relationships faster while “Networking HER Way”! At PHB, WE (a Women Entrepreneurs’ organization) is revolutionizing how Advanced Networking is done and it’s a BIG DEAL that you’re part of that! 

  1. Business Circle Format: Intro * Principle Round-Table * Healthy-Her * Win-Wins * Announcements
  2. Relationship Circle Format: Intro * Get-to-Know 1 * Healthy-Her * Get-to-Know 2 * Announcements

Virtual Circles run 1.5-2 hours and (if applicable) In-person Circles are 2 hours. 

*To fulfill upon being a close-knit, high-results Circle, the expectation is for members to make attending Circle a priority, be punctual, and be in communication if they’re unable to attend or will be late.  

 

As a PHB Member, the purpose of visiting a Circle is so you can either find a “Home Circle” or because you already have a “Home Circle” and want to experience how other Circles work and meet “Sister Circle”  members.  Find “Sister Circles” here.

If you already have a “Home Circle”, you are welcome to visit other Circles as a guest at no additional costs… but only if the “Sister Circle” is open to it. Ask the Circle Organizer if you can “visit”. 

Talking to the Circle Organizer ahead of time also helps them to understand if you already have a Home Circle or if you’re considering making their Circle your new “Home”. 

All PHB Private Networking Circles have a “1X Free guest” policy, so you can invite friends into your Circle and see if it’s a good fit for everyone.  

At the end of attending a Circle event, the Circle Organizer(s) will ask your friend if they’d like to request to join your Circle (and actively participate).

If so, members will vote about accepting your guest, as each Circle strives to create the ultimate inner circle of trust, friendship, support and inspiring, Win-Win relationships! 

If your guest is voted in, the Circle Organizer will contact them, and the next step is for them to become a PHB Int’l member online (if they aren’t one already) before they can be onboarded & continue participating in your Circle.  

PHB requires that you pick 1 Circle as your “Home Circle” (aka: the one you’re telling the Circle Organizer you will be actively attending twice per month). 

It’s important to choose a Home Circle, and not to just drop into Circles indefinitely, as the purpose of Circles is to build deeper relationships and commit to supporting a small group of Women Entrepreneurs, who all know each other and have each other’s backs. 

A Home Circle is your opportunity to not feel so lonely as a Woman Entrepreneur and truly have a strong Circle of friendships that inspire your life and fuel your Biggest Business Dreams:)

 

Everything you ever wanted to know about your specific Private Networking Circle will be on your Circle’s “Everything” spreadsheet. It’s called that for a reason (grin).

Everything will include Zoom links, your Circle’s Promotion Calendar, Fav Cause info, when you’re scheduled for your Get-To-Know Spotlight and more. 

Just make sure that the “Everything” spreadsheet is shared with you and that you proactively go through all the spreadsheet’s tabs, so you know what’s on there.

Answering Your Questions

Yes. Once you’re a PHB Member, there is no additional charge to participate in a PHB Private Networking Circle.  And if you’re not a PHB Member yet, it is a prerequisite to be an Active Member to participate in a Circle.

There are also no extra fees to Start a PHB Private Networking Circle!

The purpose of a Private Networking Circle is about quality of relationships over quantity of people. Circles are intended to foster deeper levels of connection, friendship, trust and support, and they typically have anywhere from 6-15 Women Entrepreneurs in them. Having a smaller, more intimate circle helps all Circle Sisters know all Circle Sisters.

When you have a more exclusive Circle, it also makes it easier to find a venue or host from your home if you choose in-person events. However, you can easily do this empowering, proven format online.

*Circle Organizers can also choose if they want to have their Private Networking Circle be Virtual, In-person or Hybrid. 
With that said, given that we have Power Points and are doing breakouts, our Circle’s format is most easily done virtually. 
Plus, virtual means no cleanup or having to worry about traffic, parking, food or getting a room. Another option is to do a hybrid approach and have Circle events be virtual, while having quarterly socials be in-person.

In terms of attending PHB Int’l events with our global community, there is no need to tell us if you’re going to miss one.  Just attend the 5 virtual Network HER Way events around your schedule. 

On the other hand, when you commit to being in a Private Networking Circle, you are making a promise to your intimate Circle of Women Entrepreneurs to get to know them – and be able to better support/refer each other – by prioritizing attending Circle.

*It’s only for Private Networking Circle that you need to put in the group chat if you’re running late or will miss a Circle, so everyone knows where everyone is.   

 

Speaking at Private Networking Circle(s) means having the opportunity to give a 20 minute “Get-To-Know” Spotlight.  Circles are small enough that you can usually speak to your “Home Circle” (e.g, a Circle you’ve committed to attend 2X / mo) a couple times a year if you’d like to. 

In addition, you can reach out to the Organizers of Sister Circles to ask if you can visit and/or do a “Get-To-Know” Spotlight at their Circle too. 

*Important: You can only speak at a Circle if you are already in a “Home Circle.”  

Stopping Circle Membership

1. Tell Your Circle Organizer

Tell your Circle Organizer, so they can unshare the “Everything Spreadsheet,” take you off the Active Members tab, remove you from the Get-To-Know spotlight & private FB group chat. 

2. Tell Your Circle Sisters

Tell the ladies that you’re leaving and any reasons you feel comfortable disclosing. Share at Circle during Announcements or in the group chat for all to see. It’s better if they hear it directly from you than your Circle Organizer. Your Circle Sisters care what’s going on with you. 

3. If applicable, Cancel PHB Int'l Membership

Please note that leaving Circle isn’t the same as stopping your PHB Membership. Stopping one does not stop the other. If you no longer want to be a PHB Int’l Member with our global community, then cancel your membership here (from your Member Dashboard).  

*If you're leaving Circle Because the time no longer works, consider Starting a new Circle around your schedule, which is no additional cost (Plus, Jōs, PHB's Founder, will directly Mentor you).

“In the short time that I’ve been a member of PHB, I have learned so much about being a successful woman entrepreneur. There is no pressure to give referrals to each other, but rather developing win-win relationships that naturally lead to referrals is highly encouraged. I love getting to know all of the professional, ambitious and supportive women in PHB.”
