Professional networking that actually makes sense.

Professional networking that actually makes sense for all women.

It's time to change how business networking is done.

Have you ever walked into a networking event and immediately wanted to leave? Or spent the whole night nursing a drink, waiting for it to end?
We’re right there with you!

We’re right there with you!

Traditional networking is tired and doesn't work anymore. Today’s events are boring, cringey, and not set up to create real connections. Everything just seems fake or forced.

Women want more. That’s why we started the Social Club - to take the awkwardness and anxiety out of professional networking with fun events that promote real connections with real people.

Join us as we shatter the mold and start a new ( and better! ) way to network!

IS THE
FOR ME?

TAKE THE QUIZ

FOR ME?

IS THE

Question #1

feel bored or nervous at professional networking events ?

Do you ...

We've spoken to many women who feel the same way when it comes to traditional networking events.

Here's what they said:

Yes: You are Not Alone!

  • "I feel awkward approaching people I don't know."
  • "I always feel out of place in new groups."
  • "I get nervous."
  • "It's the same thing with the same people, over and over."
  • "I meet a ton of people, but leave feeling overwhelmed."
  • "It's a waste of my time."

No: Good for you!

There are some women who really know how to put themselves out there at traditional, professional networking events. But how effective has this really been at helping you grow?

  • “It was a waste of my time.”
  • “I will probably never talk to these people again.”
  • “I just don’t see how that’s actually going to help my business.”
  • “I made connections, but they were shallow.”
  • "I never remember anyone's name."

You might have spent the entire night schmoozing, but many professionals still leave these events saying:

Question #2

tired of all the virtual bullshit ?

Are you ...

Digital fatigue is real, and if we get another invite to a webinar/zoom event,
we will be throwing our laptops out the window.

Not only that, but research shows that virtual meetings just aren’t as effective.

You're less likely to:

Yes: Same! We are over it.

  • Retain information
  • Build lasting connections
  • Actually show up

No: We get it.

The pajama life is tempting. If recent years have taught us anything, it’s that working from home can be amazing.

But there are some drawbacks:

  • Real connections come from in-person meetings. That’s just a fact.
  • People are less likely to retain information (or even pay attention) during zoom calls and webinars.
  • You need to get out of your house every once in a while!

We’re not saying ditch the pajamas for business casual every day. We’re saying that eventually you’re going to need to wash those pajamas, so why not go out and have some fun while you wait for the spin cycle to finish?

Question #3

tired of wasting your money on leadshare services?

Are you ...

If you've signed up for an online directory that promises to send potential customers your way, you've probably felt that rush of excitement that comes with that "Jane is interested in hiring you" email in your inbox. You reply with optimism only to be ghosted. Rinse and repeat. You're a name on a very long list, competing against other businesses in your local market.

Here are some reasons leadshares suck:

Exactly! We know your pain.

  • "It's expensive."
  • "I never hear back from the leads."
  • "It requires a long-term commitment."
  • "There is so much competition."

No: If it’s actually working for you... that’s great! 

But, how much are you spending on these services? Do the benefits outweigh the cost? And wouldn’t it be great to see the same results without having to bid on jobs in such a competitive market?

That’s what IRL networking does for you. Once you build a community, people who have grown to like and trust you will start recommending you to others. And everyone knows that a referral from a friend means so much more than an email from a stranger.

AWESOME!
