is an informal, drop-in information-based networking group for business owners and professionals in San Mateo County. Tired of "joining" networking groups that require annual dues and monthly attendance and getting little in terms of actionable information to improve our business, we envisioned a new way of doing things and made it happen.
According to the Center for Women’s Business Research, women and men business owners have different management styles. Women emphasize relationship building as well as fact gathering and are more likely to consult with experts, employees, and fellow business owners. We're here to honor women's management style by providing them with a forum to build relationships, gather information and consult with experts and other business owners.
The Power of the Purse welcomes woman professionals, executives and business owners, and is a resource for you to:
- LEARN valuable information to help you grow and run your business smoothly,
- ACHIEVE success (as you define it!) and financial security, and
- INTEGRATE the many aspects of your life.
We are not just business owners, we are resources, friends, mentors, colleagues, mothers, daughters and wives. We don't just want to grow our business, we want balance. We want to enjoy health, happiness and personal growth. Do you want these things too? Then please join us!
We have only three rules:
- No obligations, no commitments
- Nice people only.
- Bring a friend!
A "qualified guest" is a woman professional, executive or business owner, operator or manager.
