Private Networking Circles

PHB’s Private Networking Circles are about creating an exclusive, empowering, close-knit environment for Women Entrepreneurs to build the strongest relationships with each other, have more fun, and unite around finding the best ways to promote themselves and each other year-round.

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. 

Participate in a PHB Private Networking Circle

Interested? Great news! If you are already a PHB Int’l member, there is no additional charge to declare a “Home Circle”, which you participate in regularly. You can also be a “PHB Visitor” at another Circle, as long as you get approval from that Circle’s Organizer ahead of time. 

If you not a PHB Member yet, you can attend a Private Networking Circle 1X as a Free Guest.  It it’s the right fit, you can “request” to join & be voted in. It is then required to become a PHB Member before continuing participation in that Circle.

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.”

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 the Circle Organizer(s) term. 

Circle Members ask a Cause Representative about the best way to support them,  whether that’s through volunteering time, promoting the cause through social media, and/or making financial or in-kind donations, etc

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.  

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.

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, 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 can also be a “PHB Visitor” at other Circles, meaning you’re a PHB Member who is visiting. However, you will need to get the 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 4 “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.  You start to know the real woman behind each business and prioritize attending 2 Circle events each month! If you can’t attend or will be running late, Circles ask that you are in communication.   

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’s 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 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” or because you already have a “Home Circle” and want to experience how other Circles work. 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”. Talking to the Circle Organizer ahead of time also helps them to understand if you are visiting from a Home 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). That way, the Circle Organizer can anticipate how many Women Entrepreneurs are attending and setup 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 this 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 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 — (someone 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.

"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.

"Promote Her Business is the most well-rounded group I've ever been a member of. There's something for everyone no matter where you are in the life stage of your business. The Events each month are always fun and productive, and I leave with new leads or referrals..."
Amber Chang

"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. Connections made in PHB promote better referrals because women understand what I offer and vice-versa. I love being involved with PHB because I want to be known for my talents and gifts and not just my business category."
