about
Circles

PHB’s Private Networking Circles* can best be described as epitome of “Networking HER Way.” They are an empowering, one-of-a-kind, intimate gathering that you won’t find anywhere else.

Circles happen 2X per month and have 2 empowering, income-encouraging formats.

  • The “Business Circle Format” focuses on peer-mentoring, promotion, and Win-Win 1:1s.
  • The “Relationship Circle Format” focuses on giving you an opportunity to be a speaker to a loving “captive audience” that wants to hear what you have to say and gives insightful business-building feedback.

Circles are intentionally designed so that more women remember you and can make better referrals to You!  

Here are your 2 next steps: 

  1. Fill out a Circle Interest form, so Circle Organizer(s) can reach out to you when they have Circle openings for new members.
  2. Look at PHB’s Find a Circle page & ask to be a 1X Free Guest.

*For current PHB Int’l Members: This is a Membership BONUS. There is no additional charge to participate in Circles, 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 other members.

*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 30 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 Circles, 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.  

Why Women Entrepreneurs ❤︎ Circling Up . . .

"Our Private Networking Circle has women of diverse backgrounds who are genuinely kind and value the power of strengthening each other. Knowing they are part of my circle motivates and inspires me daily to promote myself, learn, grow, show up and promote other women in their businesses too."
Tanya Kailath
Caregiver Coach, Enlightened Aging
"As a seasoned entrepreneur and experienced networker, I launched a new-to-me business in June and thanks in great part to the women of PHB and the SV Networking Circle, have been in the top 3 in sales for my team in that business 3 times in the past 6 months!"
Sara Haller
Consultant, Tupperware
“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.”
Sandy Okamoto
Brand Ambassador, Stella & Dot

Private Networking Circles?

frequently asked questions

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 members know all members.

*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, there’s 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.

As a PHB Int’l Member, participating in a Private Networking Circle is included in your membership. You choose one “Home Circle” that you’re committing to attend 2X per month.  

Once you’ve joined a “Home Circle,” you can ask to be a “PHB Visitor” at other sister Circles and/or ask to speak through the “Get to Know” Spotlight. However, you will need to get the other Circle Organizer’s approval before attending. 

The #1 Difference is how deep you’re taking the Win-Win relationships and friendships you’re building with other supportive and purpose-driven women.

PHB’s 5 “Network HER Way” events each month are facilitated by PHB Int’l and are 100% virtual. You have the opportunity to do Win-Wins with Women Entrepreneurs from PHB’s global community. And you only take the relationship deeper with anyone you “click with”. You are not expected to get to know everyone. Plus, you only attend events as they fit your schedule. 

On the other hand, PHB Private Networking Circle (PNC) is about having you build a personalized, exclusive Circle of Trust and Support. At PNC, all members “get-to-know” all members through 2 very powerful formats and additional speaking and promotion opportunities. 

Speaking at Private Networking Circle(s) means having the opportunity to give a 30 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.”  

Here are 2  steps to get invited to a Circle as a 1X Free Guest: 

  1. Fill out a Circle Interest form, so Circle Organizer(s) can reach out to you when they have Circle openings for new members.
  2. Look at PHB’s Find a Circle page & ask to be a 1X Free Guest.
Please note: If no Circles fit with your schedule – and/or you have a specific niche of referral partners you’re looking for – you can Start a Circle for no additional cost once you’re a PHB Member. 

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.  

 

Find a Circle: The purpose of visiting Circles is so you can either find a “Home Circle” (e.g., a Circle you’re committing to attend 2X a month)  or because you already have a “Home Circle” and want to meet ladies in sister Circles and/or speak in the Get-To-Know Spotlight. 

PHB requires members 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. 

Visit Other Circles: In addition to participating in your “Home Circle”, you are welcome to visit other Circles as a guest at no additional costs… but only if the Circle is open to it. Ask the Circle Organizer if you can “visit” and/or do a “Get-To-Know” Spotlight (if you’re part of a Sister Circle). 

Talking to the Circle Organizer ahead of time helps them understand if you’re visiting from a Sister Circle or if you’re considering making their Circle your “Home”. 

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 2X per month). That way, the Circle Organizer can anticipate how many Women Entrepreneurs are attending and facilitate accordingly.

Also, having a “Home Circle” is an opportunity to move from having superficial networking contacts to deep relationships, which win-win, profitable relationships are made from. 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:)

All PHB Private Networking Circles have a  1X Free guest policy, so you can see if a Circle is a good fit for you, and members can see if you’re a good fit for their Circle too. 

After attending a Circle event, the Circle Organizer(s) will ask you if you’d like to request to join their Circle as your “Home Circle” (and actively participate).

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

If you’re voted in, the Circle Organizer will contact you and the next step is to become a PHB Int’l member online (if you aren’t one already) before you can continue participating in that Circle.  

As a PHB Int’l Member, there is no additional charge to participate in a PHB Private Networking Circle. However, you can’t just join someone’s private Circle: After attending as a 1X Free guest, you will need to “Request” being a Circle Member and be voted in.  

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

When you’re a Guest — (who isn’t a PHB Int’l Member yet) — please note that ALL Circles have a “1X and Join” policy, meaning you can attend 1X as a Free Guest before becoming a PHB Member.

Why Women Entrepreneurs ❤︎ PHB Networking . . .

"PHB is truly about promoting your business with a variety of members - a cross section of Women Entrepreneurs - who share ideas, referrals and professional connections. This is about sharing experiences and collaboration, not being sold to. The first event I attended for my non-profit, I was introduced to a Public Relations entrepreneur, a bookkeeper, an author, business coach and video production business among others…"

"PHB is unique in the genre of networking and marketing, because it is not just a collection of business sound bites. It is a body of knowledge and gifts attached to specific businesses and services provided by Women Entrepreneurs.

How important is connection for you and your business?

Have you noticed that the more we feel socially distanced from each other, the more we long for human connection? 

As long as we’re human – and especially Women Entrepreneurs – high-touch is as important as high-tech.  There is no replacement for being together — either face-to-face via video conference or in-person — which is why we’re so excited about PHB’s Private Networking Circles.  

We look forward to giving you proven “Network HER Way” formats to go farther together than you could ever go alone, while having vulnerable conversations and shining the brightest spotlight on each other’s businesses! 

Face-to-Face connection is essential because visual is memorable: The more people see you, the more likely they are to do business with you and refer their friends and family to you.
