The primary objective of the SMBN is to help you gain exposure to your business. We concentrate on driving traffic to our members pages, so that you are seen. The secondary objective is to reduce stigma and dispel misconceptions that single mums are work shy. It is the passion of founder Julie Hawkins to raise awareness of the real issue being that work is not in sync with school and wages are not in sync with inflation. Until those two things harmonise the SMBN will help you by increasing exposure to your business.
Whether you are new to self-employment, just setting up a company or a seasoned business woman who understands the SMiB journey, we welcome you to join the network, because you know how important it is that we support each other and dispel misconceptions, and paying it forward is one of the most rewarding things that a girl can do!
When you join the SMBN as a member you will benefit from continued PR throughout the year. This ensures that your money will go a lot further than if you were alone. It is a collaboration. A network of women in business who have some unique challenges and are supporting each other.
