Let's Circle-Up about
The 12 Principles to PHB

The 12 Principles to Promote Her Business are the foundational building blocks to being a successful Woman Entrepreneur.  

These 12 Principles provide an easy-to-follow, step-by-step process to transforming both your business and business-relationships. 

And when you peer-mentor your Circle Sisters — and keep each other accountable for inspired action — you are unstoppable! 

Principle of the Month

During each PHB Business Circle format, we focus on 1 Principle, 1 Month at a time. This way, each Circle explores all 12 Principles over the course of each year.

Circle Sisters love round-tabling on the Principle of the Month (POM). They share their business experiences, best practices, sticking points, and peer-mentor each other . . . while Networking HER Way! 

The POM also unites all PHB Private Networking Circles by having the same biz-accelerating convo during the same month:)

3) Encourage Circle Sisters to keep each other Accountable by asking for accountability buddies. 

4) Keep the Principle of Month conversation alive past the Circle meeting. Talk about it in your private FB chat and beyond…
