Welcome to PHB

Promote Her Business International (PHB) is a one-of-a-kind Networking and Marketing & Sales Training organization for purpose-driven Women Entrepreneurs across industries and experience levels.

Why our members

PHB

Do you have great products and services and want more people to know about them? 

Then, you’re in the right place. 

Our PHB members continually accelerate their marketing results by applying The 12 Secrets to Network HER Way, peer mentoring one another, and building inspiring, Win-Win relationships.

Our vision

We are a role model for shining the brightest spotlight on Women Entrepreneurs.

As Virginia Woolf once proclaimed: “For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.” Well, not anymore!

At PHB, we are doing everything in our power to have more Women Entrepreneurs go down in history… whether that’s down in their family history for being a role model, down in industry history for being a trailblazer; or down in world history for being a legendary change agent in both their local and global communities.

Our mission

to empower you - a purpose-driven Woman Entrepreneur - to promote your business and each other:

Online. Offline. All the Time.​

 We have an evolutionary, hybrid approach to growing your business and business relationships. This is why we teach the best ways to be successful online and offline. Our community has opportunities to network virtually through PHB International Membership (and virtually or in-person through PHB Private Networking Circles).

We also believe that if you want to “work smarter” in promoting your business, it’s important to lock arms with other supportive and purpose-driven Women Entrepreneurs, so we can help each other get known, learn The 12 Secrets to Network HER Way, and explore what “Networking HER Way” uniquely means to you.

Our story

Promote Her Business International

 “Why did you start your business?”

This is one of the most common questions people will ask you, so it’s important to have a compelling answer. I’ll share my story, which I hope will inspire you to get ideas about how to share yours.

**************************************

PHB Int’l began because I (Jōs) was so done selling Girl Scout cookies in the Chicago cold. Have you ever tried door-to-door selling as a kid?

As much as I loved Girl Scouts, going on trips, and being top cookie seller for 10 years in a row, what I did not love was ringing doorbells – when my fingers were so cold I couldn’t feel them.

I kept thinking: “There had to be a better way to help the girls of today – and women of tomorrow — better leverage their time to make money and make a difference.” How could women work smarter, not harder?

I made it my life’s work to figure it out.

**************************************

Today, our PHB Int’l Members “work smarter” by having supportive, purpose-driven Women Entrepreneurs come together to get more Yeses & referrals, while building more inspiring, win-win relationships than ever! Together, we learn and apply The 12 Secrets to Network HER Way,  authentically share our biz (and stories) through 5 virtual “Network HER Way” events each month,  and so much more! 

For most of history, women were anonymous. Well, not anymore! At PHB, we are Making History by shining a brighter spotlight on Women Entrepreneurs than ever before. If you want to learn the best ways to promote your business, while building inspiring, win-win, profitable relationships, come join us!

our pillars of success

Do these sound like you?  If so, we’d love to invite you into our PHB community and introduce you to other like-minded Women Entrepreneurs who are living these values!

Leverage Visual Triggers:

No one will be more passionate about your business than you. So, it’s important to up your energy. As a PHB Member, we recommend to use something as a visual trigger — such as a doorway. And once you see “the trigger,” 10X your energy – no matter how much traffic there was or whatever happened earlier that day.

Step into Your Feminine Power:

This means in a collaborative – rather than competitive – manner. That’s why we have several Women Entrepreneurs in the same category (industry) as Members, because we believe we can learn from each other and raise up our industry. We also like to give our Members choices of who to do business with, because different experts in the same industry resonate with different women.

Your word is your brand:

When participating in PHB’s 5 virtual “Network HER Way” events each month & doing “Win-Win” 1:1s, follow-up on what you promised or it will hurt your reputation. “Call yourself out” when you drop the ball, as opposed to waiting to be caught. Being dependable also means being on time. To start “on time”, arrive early. If you’re running late, be in communication about your updated arrival time.

Will you pass the test? 

You may be excited about promoting your business today, but you will be tested by life. You have a choice to be unstoppable or to give into excuses. What’s testing you now? Leverage PHB’s virtual “Network HER Way” events to empower you. Then, ask our global sisterhood for support to help you go the distance.

 

Are you growing or stagnating?

Continual Improvement is how we grow ourselves and our businesses. As PHB Int’l Members, we continually improve by striving to master  The 12 Secrets to Network HER Way. We expand our global network faster during Virtual Speed Networking, share best biz practices during PHB Round-Table Networking, and conduct Win-Win 1:1s during Global Networking Circle and beyond. Ladies also love Wild Card Networking, because it’s fun and helps them grow their biz, while guessing what the Advanced Networking format will be.  Plus, we accelerate our success by creating our Monthly Networking Plan {together}. What will most benefit you this week?

Create a Safe Zone:

Do you desire a community which holds itself to create a positive culture, demonstrates ethical business practices, and fosters personal integrity? PHB creates a “safe space” to Network HER Way by enforcing our “zero tolerance” policy for unethical behavior. We uphold the empowering culture our PHB members deserve through both PHB Int’l Membership and PHB Private Networking Circles.

How do others see you? 

What can you do to be more impressive Online. Offline. All the Time? Challenge yourself to “1-UP” yourself each week. Being impressive also means supporting other Women Entrepreneurs, being vulnerable and not giving high-pressure sales pitches. Be mindful of how you’re coming across — versus how you want to come across — when attending PHB’s 5 monthly, virtual “Network HER Way” events, conducting “Win-Win” 1:1s, or interacting with anyone. This is how to earn respect and draw more people to you.

Be kind to yourself and others:

When things go wrong, give yourself a break; you’re doing the best you can. When others annoy you, give them the benefit of the doubt, have difficult conversations in a timely manner, and be open to holding differing viewpoints and still being friends. Also, be kind to the world by thinking bigger than your business and promoting great causes (#gossipforgood) in PHB facebook group.  If you’re part of a PHB Private Networking Circle – or thinking of starting one – consider having your circle support a Favorite Cause. 

{global} impact

As we see it, too much of the world is “in the dark” about women’s awesome products/services.

Here's the good news: Every time another Woman Entrepreneur learns the best way to promote herself {or another woman}, a new location on the globe lights up! Now, more people - who really need what she offers - can easily find her.  

This is the time to light up the world, starting with yours!
