4 powerful gains from joining a business womens network

One of the best things about being a woman in business is the many female led communities out there that you can be part of. There are countless opportunities for women in agencies to meet and collaborate, sometimes it can feel like a bit of a chore to go it alone. Running a business on your own can be tough and statistics show that although women are starting more businesses than ever, there is a higher churn rate meaning more opens and closes. That’s where business womens’ networks come in: they’re one of the most powerful tools for professional women who want to grow their careers and find support in the business world. 

A great business womens network can give you a powerful support group

Whether you are running an agency or you are working your way up in the agency world, it can be tough to always know how to navigate the working landscape. You could be dealing with a client issue, looking for a promotion or working through team relationships or staffing changes. 

A business womens network can be a great way to find a support group that works for you.

Women in Agencies, among many other female led womens networks are created with the sole aim of furthering womens’ progression within the world of work. The juggle is real – but community can help! 

A business community comes with supportive accountability

Accountability is one of the most important parts of any successful agency, but it can also be one of the hardest to maintain over time. So often do we find ourselves distracted but other jobs that seem more urgent or get taken away from management by other things. The good news? A good business womens’ network that fits with your ethos and drive can help you stay accountable to your goals and your growth.

Accountability in agency management is essential for a variety of reasons:

  • It keeps you from giving up on your goals if things get tough
  • It helps you keep to timelines 
  • It allows you to learn from other women who have already accomplished what you’re trying to do
  • It helps keep track of what steps are necessary to get where you want to go
  • It makes the process more enjoyable, so you can celebrate the steps you have taken and the milestones you reach!

A business womens network can help build motivation

Motivation is one of those funny things that it seems some people have an endless supply of. But don’t always believe what you see on social media or what people might tell you! We all feel the stretch and burn out is real – no matter who you are! 

A business women’s network can provide extra motivation at those times when you are feeling like you need a boost, ensuring that you have a constant source of inspiration and support.

Being part of a community of individuals who are facing the same challenges is a powerful way to pull together and find motivation. Its well known that agency work can be a mixed back of projects, retainers, relationships, pitching and everything in between – so having a sounding board or your own cheer team can help keep you on track. 

With a strong network behind you, there is no limit to what can be achieved.

A supportive network can get you better results faster

Skill and knowledge sharing is a vital and key part of all business communities. No one wants a community where people are showing off or making everything seem rosey. 

Finding a group of like minded women who speak honestly about work and their own goals and challenges is a breath of fresh air if you have been working in isolation. It’s a proven fact that when people collaborate and we have open minded diverse teams – businesses do better. A womens’ network community is a great way to find a group of people who will share stories and help uncover opportunities for your professional and business development. 

To end 

The answer to the question, “What could you gain from a business womens network?” is simple: it can help you get ahead in your career. The more connections you have and the more support you have from other women, the better off you’ll be when it comes time to making decisions about your future.
