Girlboss to Launch New Social Network for Young Women Entrepreneurs

im-32130

A recent Wall Street Journal article reports that, “Girlboss, a media company targeting women entrepreneurs, plans to introduce a paid, professional social-networking site called Girlboss Collective in January.” This new platform will be structured for the ever evolving career paths of millennial women, with profiles highlighting users’ character as opposed to work experience.

GirlBoss Collective will, “fit the professional networking needs of young women, many of whom have multiple part-time jobs or career gaps that look out of place on a traditional résumé. Girlboss Collective is being designed with women in mind, although it will be open to people of any gender, the company said.”

Membership for the site will reportedly be less than $15 a month, and users will have access to video footage of notable female speakers in high offices of various industries.

The WSJ article goes on to detail,

“Ms. Amoruso envisions a community of subscribers helping one another on professional matters both trivial and large, from negotiating raises to finding an intellectual property attorney in their area….Girlboss has prototyped the concept of its private social network with a Facebook group called “Girlboss Gang” that has more than 5,700 members, Ms. Amoruso added. She said more than 15,000 users are already on a wait list to join Girlboss Collective, which will be an invite-only, U.S.-based network in its testing phase.”

Everyone here at wegg® is excited by the mission of Girlboss Collective, and we hope to partner with Amoruso and her company in the future. wegg® knows that the key to female entrepreneurial success is connecting with each other, to build an unstoppable global network.

wegg® keeps energizing women entrepreneurs the world over. We can help you build confidence, find great resources and show you the steps you can take to go global. Join us for our FREE wegginar® on 11/7 with Cristina Bandal. You can find all of the details, and register for the event, here.

For Evita Turquoise Robinson, Facebook Is the Capital of the Internet

ForEvitaTurquoiseRobinsonFacebookIsTheCapitalOfTheInternet

Evita Turquoise Robinson, founder of the group, Nomadness Travel Tribe, has more than 10,000 members from all over the globe. The distinctiveness of her group is that while it is open to travelers of all ethnicities, it is primarily African American, age 25 to 40, with 80 percent women.  How did she build up such a following?  Social media was the key to the group’s growth.

“There are so many social media outlets: Twitter, Periscope, Instagram. Instagram and Periscope- — the live-streaming app — allow anyone to follow along on our trips,” she [Evita] said. “If the Internet was a geographic location, Facebook would be the capital. It is where everyone is. If you can start someplace where everyone is and then push out from that point, you have the opportunity to do something special.”

Global Networking, Social Media and a Cuppa Joe

Looking for new ways to network on those endless roadtrips?

Try Social Media Breakfasts.

This morning I went to the inaugural SF-East Bay Social Media Breakfast and met over thirty new faces. These people ran the gamut in both age and background. Five of them worked in areas that were directly relevant to my business. One turned out to be a friend of a friend. And interestingly, well over half of them were women.

Currently held in 18 cities around the world — and spreading rapidly — Social Media Breakfasts pull together a group of social media experts, enthusiasts and newcomers to share uses, successes and learning curves related to social media applications. Experts briefly present and then open the floor to attendees so that projects, experiences and relevant event/contact information can be shared. Everyone is welcome, and this one was free.

Thanks to JD Lasica for presenting, Shel Holtz and Kenny Lauer for organizing, Liveworld for sponsoring the event at Cesar, and the Society for New Communications Research for getting the word out.
