INNER CIRCLE

Designed for women who want to focus on their goals and know that regularly, structured support by way of an accountability group, will help. This member is not only big on spending time within our community, she shares her goals and leans on the Inner Circle and her accountability group for advice and support.  This is a great way to dip your toe into the accountability piece and build strong connections with a smaller group of women where you will meet quarterly and participate in a structured accountability session based around our framework. All Inner Circle members are also part of our Greater Circle community.

INNER CIRCLE: NEXT LEVEL

This is for the women who know by having her own small group of women who meet monthly with a facilitator, is the ultimate in accountability and keeping on track to achieve her goals.  This is where your connections deepen for life. The level of vulnerability, trust and support you gain from this group is magic. The members of this group are often living or have lived in your shoes.  They go on your journey with you, and support you along the way. To be an inner circle- next level member, you have been actively part of our community for a while and understand the commitment required.

Chances are you’ve been to networking events and found them fruitless or just plain uncomfortable. You might be thinking “I don’t want to introduce who I am and what I do, over and over to no end”.  Perhaps you have never made any real connections or even worse, you’ve found yourself on the receiving end of countless business cards and sales pitches. You might also find the whole thing confronting or competitive. 

This has likely left you cautious about going to other events and wanting to know more about what you’re getting yourself into before committing. If any of this sounds like you, you are likely to be looking to connect with people who want to really get to know you, your business and your needs and you’re also open to sharing your experience, insights and advice too. Secret Women’s Business is unlike what you’ve experienced elsewhere…

“I was skeptical about joining this group largely because of prior experiences. I came into this group seeking an accountability partner to help keep me on track with my business goals. What I didn’t realise at the time, was how much I would benefit from being part of the Inner Circle. I’m a private person so initially found the idea sharing challenges difficult. Being in an intimate, well curated group of women I ‘leaned in’. As I result I have received great insight, advice, support and wisdom that has helped me make great gains personally and professionally.”

“I don’t have time to fit in another obligation” or “I can’t get to everything”.

Totally! Your time is precious. Many of us are juggling a whole list of things at a time so it makes sense to think carefully about what you give time to. If you can’t make each and every event, that’s absolutely fine because we know that ‘life happens’. To support you to attend as many meetings or gatherings as you would like, we already have every date set for the year ahead so you can schedule it in your calendar ahead of time. We also have a variety of ways that you can be involved.

You may be thinking ‘I don’t feel like I have anything to offer the group’.

If that’s how you’re feeling, you’re not alone. Some of our members have joined SWB unsure of what they have to offer others, especially if they are in the midst of really challenging times. From being connected to the group and leaning in, they’ve since said they now realise that they have been able to contribute in a variety of ways. Even if you are unable to recognise your value for others just yet, you will once you have been a part of our community for a short while.

“I’ve joined other women’s groups before and I haven’t got what I thought I’d get.”

We hear you. It’s one of the major reasons this community was created. We’ve walked away from other groups and events feeling inspired but soon feeling flat. It is an unnerving feeling when you feel like you’re left to take the next steps alone. We, too have sat at tables where there have been no real connections made, event after event. Our members who join the Greater Circle or Inner Circle say that joining has been game-changing in terms of their ability to take action and move forward.

At SWB we know how important planning and accountability is, we know that if you plan and focus on what is important to you and are supported along the way, you are likely to exceed your expectations.

As I don’t own my own business, I was really unsure about how a group like this could benefit me. However, from our first meeting I knew this was different. It is about making sure I am prioritising the things in each area of my life that are the most important to me, and being held accountable by a group of really supportive like minded ladies. Although I don’t have my own business goals, I definitely have career and personal ones. Having a place where I feel safe to talk about the hurdles and celebrate the wins has allowed me to define and continually work on achieving my purpose.

WHO IS BEHIND SECRET WOMEN’S BUSINESS?

Secret Women’s Business was created in 2016 by Anna Chipperfield and Megan Kelly (along with a few founding members) after realising there wasn’t a forum where they could bring their networks together and really get to know each other and their businesses.  What started as a few events each year has turned into something very powerful and it has only just begun.

‘How great would it be if every woman navigating the business world had a group of women as her Inner Circle full of trust and vulnerability, to give her support, guidance, a high five or a kick up the butt – whatever and whenever it is needed! Just imagine that!’

Anna Chipperfield, Founder
