Membership

Girlboss currently has 3 Chapters in the Metro Detroit area.  Our original group is based in Shelby Twp, Chapter 2 is in Utica, & Chapter 3 is in St. Clair Shores.

What does it mean to be a member?
For a low annual due, Girlboss members are able to attend monthly meetings that provide support, knowledge, guest speakers, workshops, social events, & a whole lot of laughs!  Girlbosses also have their businesses listed in our “Businesses” directory, advertising business information, business specials, website and social media links.  Each Boss has a “Featured Member” post all about you & your business that is shared on the Girlboss Facebook page & all over social media.  

Also included, a listing of member events on the Girlboss Calendar so all businesses can stay active and connected.  Members will have the first opportunity to reserve table slots for Girlboss vendor events.  Boss members also get a fun biz card badge to wear and are able to set up extra time to spotlight their business during meetings.

How does it work?
Girlboss has 3 Chapters.  Each Chapter will accept 2-3 (depending on similarities) women from the same field.  All 3 Chapters will come together for workshops, guest speakers, etc.  You may visit another Chapter twice a year if you miss your Chapter’s meeting.  It is important to stick to your Chapter choice.  If your field is full, we will gladly add you to our wait list or you may check another Chapter for an opening.

If you are inactive for 6 months & your field is full, you will be asked to give up your spot for those wait listed.  We understand that life is busy but it is unfair to those who are able to commit.

How often are meetings?
Each Chapter meets once a month to discuss specific topics.  There is always time towards the end for mingling.  There are also social events scattered through out the year.

Why should I join?
Girlboss is focused on building lasting relationships, business & personal.  You will never be pressured to give referrals or buy someone’s products/services.  In fact, it is not allowed to product push or ask for referrals.  We believe that in order to create a successful business from the ground up, one needs an affiliation with support & shared resources.  We are all on different paths at different times.  We share our knowledge, experiences, successes, & failures.  Girlbosses do not have the, “What’s in it for me?” attitude, but rather “How can we help each other?” mindset.

We find that when people are given the chance to learn & strengthen relationships, that business growth comes naturally.

What are the benefits?
Commitment
It’s like signing up for a gym membership.  That monthly/annual due is motivation to go.  You’ve worked all day, you’re tired, but you know you need to suck it up & go.  You’re fine once you get there and after you leave, you feel great!  You leave feeling proud of yourself.  You’ve done something to better yourself.  This group is the same way.  Many of us leave meetings feeling empowered.  Stay motivated & inspired!

Relationships
The more you commit yourself to being active, the more relationships you build.  We learn nothing from staying on the sidelines.  Being a Boss is all about ACTION.  The relationships we create help us grow as business owners & as people in general.  Friendships form.  We are the movers & shakers of our communities.

Education
We have the continued advantage of learning from each other.  Along with this are workshops, guest speakers, & professional development.  Broaden your knowledge, take charge of your career.

Networking
While Girlboss is not a networking group, it certainly is a perk.  With relationships come referrals, which brings business & collaboration.  We may be a part of many groups in social media, but the real power comes from local networking.  Many of us meet great Bosses in our community that we may not have met otherwise.
