Business Booster

Business Booster is a one-hour weekly facilitated discussion on a pertinent business topic. The conversation is guided by a fellow Hubette who is a subject matter expert. It is a great way for the leader to gain visibility for their expertise and it’s a good way for members to learn new things and stay “up-to-date” on important business topics. It is also a great opportunity for members to meet one another and build new relationships.

Past topics have included discussions on Twitter, Google+, Trademarks, CRM Software, Video Marketing, Accounting, Negotiations, and the ever popular “Polishing your Elevator Pitch.”

Member Happy Hour and Lunches

Each month, members have an opportunity to network and connect with other Hubettes at either our member-only Happy Hour or Lunch (alternates monthly).  Food is provided for both events, which is a bonus perk of being a member!

Monthly member events also include…

  • Business Accelerator Expo – January and August
  • Family Game Night – June
  • Hera Hearts, Non-profit Think Tank – October
  • Thanksgiving Potluck – November
Shared office space

Think Tank

In addition to great networking, each event gives one or two members an opportunity to tap the wisdom of the crowd on a new business concept or pivot.   Each member gets three minutes and three slides to explain their concept to the community.  They then elicit feedback through a written survey comprised of three specific questions.

This has been a great way for members to get high level feedback on target markets, pricing strategies, and potential strategic alliances.  It’s also been a great way to gauge interest before setting up additional focus groups.

Writers’ Lounge

If you have been putting off writing that blog, book, or bio the Writers’ Lounge is the perfect place to stop procrastinating and start writing. Hera Hub’s Writers’ Lounge is all about productivity!  It’s simply a way to carve out time and space to write in a comfortable, supportive environment with a sense of accountability.

While the Lounge is led by one of the professional writers in the community (AKA the “Host), it is designed for ALL members who need to do writing of any kind.  From full-time authors to business bloggers to the everyday entrepreneur, everyone can benefit from attending the Writers’ Lounge.  If you want weekly accountability or occasional support during crunch time, the Writers’ Lounge is here for you!  Turn off all the distractions, stop procrastinating and write!

Biz Dev Power Hour

Entrepreneurs wear many hats.  One hat that often gets shoved to the back of the closet is “sales”, or as we prefer to call it… “business development”.  Hera Hub members come together to work on specific business development goals in a supportive setting.  They set specific biz dev goals at the start of the hour and peel off to implement.  They then come back together at the end of session to share success and ask for feedback.
