PHB

Start a Private Networking Circle and create your exclusive circle of trust, support and friendships!

If you’re a Promote Her Business (PHB) Member, consider heading up an empowering, close-knit Circle of Women Entrepreneurs who learn together, grow together, have fun together and promote the heck out of each other’s businesses!

A Circle is intentionally smaller and more exclusive, so everyone can know everyone, and you can build inspiring, Win-Win relationships and long-lasting friendships! It’s your choice if your Circle will be virtual or in-person, open or closed, and when’s the most convenient time for you to lead it.    

A Message from PHB Int’l Founder & CEO

Do Business HER Way: Online. Offline. . . And during Circle Time:)

Why It's Awesome to become a Circle Organizer...

your start-up questions . . .

It’s required that everyone is a PHB Int’l Member (unless they are a 1X Free VIP guest)

A Circle typically consists of 6 to 15 supportive and purpose-driven Women Entrepreneurs (or those who identify as female). These are women you trust, look forward to locking arms with, and are proud to promote.

*Although PHB is designed for Women Entrepreneurs, each Circle can use their own discretion about having other women — such as Executive Directors promoting their Non-profit etc — join your Circle.

PHB Private Networking Circles are FREE to start, because we want to shine the brightest spotlight on Women Entrepreneurs, and we don’t want any barrier to do this. 

With that said, because Circles have no Circle operating budget (whoo hoo — nothing to manage!), there may be small, nominal costs throughout the year:

For example: If you choose to meet in-person, you may want  supplies (like pens, paper, a bell, etc). In which cases, you can split the costs, use your own supplies, or ask for donations.

  1. Register your circle, so you can be “listed” on PHB’s website
  2. Set a Member goal. Then, create a list of ideal members & Personally Invite them
  3. If your Circle is “open” (aka: you’re seeking members), post it on Promote Her Business Facebook group, so women can reach out to you about attending your circle as a 1X free guest.
  4. Regularly encourage members to invite 1X Free VIP guests 

A Private Networking Circle is a 1.5 – 2 hour event if virtual, and a 2-hour event if in-person (as networking is added to that front/end).

Your Circle can be easily hosted virtually via Video Conference (like zoom) or in-person from your home/living room or office, at a time most convenient for your schedule.

Your Circle can happen 1 OR 2X per month (your choice). PHB’s recommendation is 2X/mo, so you see each other more. You are then more likely to remember what each other does quicker and become tighter-knit. 

Alternate between 2 proven, practical and easy-to-facilitate formats: Business Circle and Relationship Circle format.

Circle Organizers who are most likely to successful are often described as:

  • Passionate about leading, empowering women, and continually growing themselves and their business.

Great Organizers are also excited about shining the brightest spotlight on Women Entrepreneurs (WEs) in their Circle, so more people think of WEs 1st and buy from them 1st!

As a PHB Int’l Member, there is no additional charge to participate in a PHB Private Networking Circle.

You can also visit another Circle if the Organizer is open to it.  

When Non-PHB Member Guests attend,  please note that ALL Circles have a “1X and Join” policy, meaning your guest can attend 1X for Free before becoming a PHB Int’l Member online. Organizers simply send guests to the PHB website to join – easy, breezy. 

  1. Feature all Circles on PHB’s public “Find a Circle” web page
  2. Supply you with any marketing templates you need for promotion (such as flyers, event posting examples, etc)
  3. Provide training and talking points on how to be a masterful inviter (both at PHB and in your business too)
  4. Ask Jōs, PHB Founder/CEO, questions by scheduling a Free 30 Min Consult
Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.

and more start-up answers:)

PHB has 2 fun, proven formats, which are used across All Circles: Business Circle and Relationship Circle.  

Business Circle Format:  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.

Relationship Circle Format:  This is the epitome of “doing business her way.” 1 to 2 women each time sign up for a “Get-To-Know” spotlight. They have up to 30 minutes to share 1 thing personal, 1 thing business, and make their presentation interactive and engaging. That’s all! No stuffy presentations, and presenters can allocate the time however they see fit. 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.

Once you register your Circle, you’ll receive access to a powerpoint, which makes it really easy and fun to facilitate both Circle formats

The choice is up to you. Circles have 1-2 Organizers maximum.

Yes, you can run your Private Networking Circle by yourself. You’ll have an easy-to-facilitate template to guide you, as well as mentoring from PHB.

However, it can be more fun and less work to co-lead events with a friend.  Plus, members often like hearing multiple Organizers’ voices (and not just the same one leading over and over)

Home Circle= the Circle you and your members are committing to regularly attend 

  • PHB Int’l Members are asked to officially declare a “Home Circle”, so it is clear to Organizers how many Members to setup for and if someone is officially in your Circle. 
  • There is no such thing as just dropping into countless Circles and not committing to anything. The point of Circle is to develop deeper relationships through committing to each other. 

Visiting Circle = a Circle PHB Members “drop in” for but aren’t committing to regularly attend, because they already have a Home Circle they’re committed to. 

Absolutely.  PHB International will guide you along the way and give you a step-by-step, proven “Circle-in-the-Box” methodology to further your success.  Upon becoming a Circle Organizer, you will have immediate access to our Google Drive resources and templates. 

You will also have direct access to PHB’s CEO/ Founder, Jōs. She promises to have your back and be there to answer any questions you have along the way:) Feel free to schedule a Free 30 min consult as needed. 

Additionally, we encourage you to attend PHB Global Networking Circle — because it has a similar format — and you’ll get new ideas from seeing Jōs facilitate it.  

Also, feel free to visit other Circles to get a sense of how Events are facilitated and how the community forms tight bonds.

What’s your favorite reason(s) from PHB’s “Top 7 List”?

1. Be a positive influencer in your community & shine a brighter spotlight on Women Entrepreneurs

2. Speak more and get known for facilitating powerful events

3. Make friends with fellow Women Entrepreneurs and explore what it means to “Do Business Her Way” together

4. Share best practices in Marketing & Sales

5. Build more Win-Win relationships to gain more leads and referrals

6. Unite to Master the 12 Principles to Promote Her Business

7. Create a strong, inner circle of Trust and Support in your life!

a Healthy-Her check Starting a Circle is a “High Value, Low Effort” experience: 

Plan your repeating Circle events around your schedule: 

Choose to have 1 or Two Circle events per Month (PHB recommends 2 to build deeper relationships) 

Choose if each Circle event will be 1.5 or 2 hours (if virtual); otherwise, in-person works best as 2 hours. 

Choose if your term is 6 months or 1 year 

*You can facilitate optional opportunities (like quarterly Socials and supporting a Favorite Cause) but it’s not required. 

 

PHB Global Networking Circle is run by PHB Int’l and was intentionally designed to have the same, core format as Private Networking Circles, so you have a role model of how it’s done.

*However, the results and conversations are different, because different women are round-tabling with you and building friendships. 

***In addition, Private Networking Circles (being 1.5 – 2 hours) are longer than Global Networking Circle (1 hour). So, with the extra Circle time, you can do more networking, promotional announcements, and can discuss optional opportunities like socials and/or supporting a favorite cause. 

1) When is your Circle? 

Once or twice a month? Will it be for 1.5 or 2 hours? What repeating day/time do you meet? What will your term be (6 months or 1 year)?

2) Where is your Circle being held?

Online?  In-person (home, biz, restaurant, etc)?  

3) Who is your Circle’s “intended audience”?

Ex: You can keep your audience as broad as Women Entrepreneurs across industries. OR you can be as specific as Women Entrepreneurs in the beauty industry, Women in Silicon Valley, Women of Color, or Women with eCommerce businesses, etc.

4) What will you name your Circle?

By Location — such as <Silicon Valley> Networking Circle — or By Fun Idea — such as <Mani/Pedi> Networking Circle 

5) Will your circle be open or closed?

When you register your circle, you have the option to have it be “open” (meaning PHB is helping you promote it publicly and you’re accepting new members from the public) or “closed” (private, invite-only Circle and/or Circle which is not accepting new members)

6) If your Circle is “open”, how will you promote your Circle’s repeating events (such as through Meetup, Promote Her Business facebook, etc)?
