Is there a group here on cafemom that is for moms who have small businesses and/or home based business?

I am looking for a group like this but I want one that actually offers advice, feedback, ideas, networking, etc. Does a group like this exist? The only groups I can find are the ones that they have 500 posts of why you should join their team/company.

  • I am a member of a few but you are right it's hard to find one that offers advice. I find I do better if I friend some of the women and we chat or message. I have been w/ Avon for 27 years and run a tiny cleaning and painting business. I also am a massage therapist and own several rentals. If any of those sound like I could help you, feel free to friend me.

  • I know what you mean. I think at one point I belonged to about 10 groups hoping for more communication about networking, marketing and such but they are all just flooded with ads about joining their company....let's face it i'm sure 99.9999% of the people on those groups are already with companies and not looking for an opportunity, which is why those ads on those groups produce ZERO results.

    I own several groups, I'll create such a group and keep the ads out or at least on a seperate ad only forum.....i'll post the group name in a few minutes.

  • I have a work at home group. What you are talking about is exactly what I am trying to do with it. But, when I host a support or training or networking chat no one shows, when I open a new forum for help or support, no one even checks it out... I am trying! But I'm the only one!!

    Good Luck & let me know if I can help you at all.

  • You're welcome to join my group. I only started it on Feb.1, so we only have 18 members so far, but the point of the group is to provide advice and to network. I'm a small business owner and was looking for the exact same things you are. When I couldn't find a group like I wanted, I formed one myself.

    My group is called Mommy Movers and Shakers. You can find us at http://www.cafemom.com/group/movers
