Marin Women at Work
"The girlfriends approach to building businesses".
Our vision at Marin Women at Work
is to bring women in business
together to encourage and support one another;
a group where our personal journey's are shared as well as our business goals and successes. And now more than ever we need to show our collective support. Strength in numbers.
We believe networking and community are the keys to success in business. And especially during these "interesting times" we need to work together to grow, support and manage the challenges ahead.
Welcome to our Marin Women at Work site, a networking & direct referral group.
Looking to start a new business? Become an entrepreneur? Listen to Diane Pleuss' podcast on Franchising-it may surprise you. Found on our blog/podcast page.
Member review: I have been a member of Marin Women at Work for 4 years -- I'm very discerning about the groups I belong to and invest my time in -- and this is one of the best. Successful women understand that business, and life, are built upon the power of our relationships. Marin Women at Work is a place where we learn from one another and network, all are welcome. Some of my closest friendships have been cultivated here, women entrepreneurs have unique challenges and opportunities, and the ability to share those is invaluable. Marin Women at Work has added so much value to both my business, and my life. Jayne Brodie/Rodan & Fields Independent Consultant
Once a month MWAW reaches out to another networking group to join us for our Happy Hour Collaborative Zoom Call. And last month it was the fabulous members of Marin Builders Assoc. Building Women's Group & Nor Cal women in Manufacturing.
We find collaborating with networking groups outside of our area is a great way to grow our referrals, celebrate other women in business, connect and share! Contact us if you have a group and would like to connect with us.

Tribe of Mentors:
I love love this book: poignant points, practical and tactical advice from mentors who have found solutions. Start your day with a cup of coffee and read a couple of passages, I promise it will inspire you.
Such a powerful message "Let go of who you think you're supposed to be"...
Passionate messages from 40 women including MWAW member Ulrika Brattemark
Super useful tools to improve your work week. Well worth a read!
MWAW Member Review: We love this group of innovative and supportive Entrepreneurs. We have been members for 2 years and over that time developed strong relationships with women who have become mentors, clients and friends. Karen keeps the group focused yet casual...we are all encouraged to participate and be part of this amazing group of women. I encourage anyone looking to develop not only their business but themselves to attend a couple meetings so you can learn for yourself. Molly & Deanna/Legacy Concierge Service

Affirmations for success:
Mel Robbins is awesome! A direct no nonsense presenter, she motivates and heals, she addresses simple steps to change our mindset (be sure to check out her other videos). This video was recorded just days before SIP but may benefit you now more than ever in dealing with COVID life.
