How to Successfully Network

In order to receive amazing referrals and generate more word of mouth for your business, you have to GIVE just as much as you hope to receive! At the Women’s Business League, we give our members a formula to make sure they are superior networkers, continuously leading with their hearts and giving back to their communities. Our method looks something like this:

This is how we activate our asks at our local chapter meetings! Members share their “asks” or what they would like help with in their businesses. Members are all writing down each other’s asks, and then set aside time after the meeting to create value for their fellow members. Each person considers “She Rocks” to see if they can offer a referral, opportunity, connections, kindness or support.


Is this something YOU could initiate the next time you attend a networking event? Can you go through your database of contacts and see if you could offer a referral, opportunity, connections, kindness or support to those already in your network? Try it, and watch your network GROW!!

We’re all about building a strong, supportive network for women in business through connection, opportunity, and community. A space where women of all backgrounds come together to uplift and encourage each other. Women with passion and energy. Insight and empathy. Women’s Business League is for those who want to achieve the highest version of themselves and their business (and lift up others at the same time!).


WBL has reignited the power of networking and strives to offer memberships no matter where you are in your career!
