It is a well known fact networking is an essential part of business. It is critical in making new contacts and spreading the word about yourself and your company. Mom's groups usually consist of mommy clubs or play groups, but none focus specifically on moms in business -- until now. The Business Moms Network enables a diverse range of business-minded women who are also moms to talk, mingle and do business in a relaxed yet professional atmosphere.
The Business Moms Network brings together business women and entrepreneurs from the frontlines of the battle of balancing work and family. Calling on the expertise not only of other successful moms in business, but also local entrepreneurs -- both men and women, this unique platform gives this group a comfortable and fun venue to gain business insight, make important contacts and brings together career-minded moms who work in the corporate world or have or want to start their own business.
This month, they will hear local entrepreneurs Teresa Findlay and Erika Pantages speak. Selling to the likes of Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie and Brooke Shields and picking up press in magazines like InStyle and People, these women know how to make Dirty Laundry successful and now they're going to help other women do the same.
The massive upsurge of women leaving the work place to start their own business can't be denied. According to Statistics Canada, in the past decade, women in Canada launched three times as many new businesses as men. They are creating jobs and generating encouragement for more women to start their own businesses in their communities.
The Business Moms Network believes in purposeful living. "We come together in real and virtual space to share stories, ideas, encouragement and even the mom-related mishaps we deal with on a daily basis. We help each other stay motivated and on track because we know the harsh realities of owning your own business," says Karen Percy, founder of BMN and mompreneur. "We know that waiting for the "ifs" will keep you undiscovered and probably broke. That neat little home office will become just another playroom faster than you want to know. We're confident women have higher aspirations than that!"
The Business Moms Network's next event is taking place at Burnaby Museum on Thursday, October 25 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. Working moms and mom entrepreneurs are encouraged to take a much needed break from the baby talk, consistently dirty floor, and the never-ending baskets of real dirty laundry to hear about the kind of Dirty Laundry they love.

Founded earlier this year Kaper Creative owner and mompreneur, Karen Percy, Business Moms Network (BMN) is a group of working women in British Columbia and elsewhere who are also moms who want to totally and fully be all they can be and accomplish all they can accomplish. After all, they've got dreams for a reason. Joined by West Coast Moms partner Lara Leontowich and At Your Best owner Jennifer Kemp, also mompreneurs, BMN helps moms in business succeed.
