Business Boosters are a one-hour weekly facilitated discussion on a pertinent business topic. The conversation is hosted by a fellow Hera Hub member on an area of their expertise. It is a great way for the host to gain exposure within the community. Business Boosters are one of the best ways for members to learn entrepreneurial and self-growth tools and stay “up-to-date” on important business topics. They are also a great way for members to meet one another and build new relationships.
Past Business Booster topics: budgeting, LinkedIn, branding, filing trademarks, Instagram, negotiations, CRM software, legal updates, and more.
Sub-Hubs are global, member-led, affinity groups, which meet regularly to share resources and support one another. Some Sub-Hubs are industry-specific, others have risen from common interests or goals, while others are based on the phase of business shared by the members. Each Sub-Hub has a private Facebook group for the sharing of resources, discussion, and events. The members of each group decide upon the format and structure of the virtual meetings. New members are always welcome, as are suggestions for new Sub-Hubs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to be added to any of the groups.
A list of Sub-Hubs can be found at herahub.com/subhubs
Every Monday, we tap our member base for coaches, instructors, and counselors to lead a 20-minute mindfulness exercise to center ourselves and mentally prepare for the coming week. Through meditation, breathwork, and even sound healing, we gather together to begin the week as a community with our intentions firmly in place.
Hera Hub hosts several Global Challenges throughout the year, focusing on the all-important goal of working “on” your business versus “in” your business. Challenge themes include Content Development, Marketing, Writing, and Sales, and the duration of each ranges from 2 to 6 weeks, depending on the topic. Each Challenge is conducted through a private Facebook group through which participating members are encouraged to introduce themselves and their businesses, seek support for their goals, and share wins. Not only do our Global Challenges provide the accountability that entrepreneurs need to move their businesses forward, but they are a wonderful opportunity for members in other locations to get to know each other’s’ businesses and connect.
If you have been putting off writing that blog, book, bio, web or sales copy, Writers’ Lounge is the perfect solution to setting time aside to get these writing goals accomplished. Hera Hub’s Writers’ Lounge is a way to carve out time and space to write in a comfortable, supportive environment with a sense of accountability. This weekly event is designed for ALL members who need to do writing or work on projects of any kind. Hosted for a 2-hour block during noon weekly, we encourage our members to bring their lunches and laptops into the conference room, catch up with one another, bounce ideas off the group, and get some work done. From full-time authors to business bloggers to the everyday entrepreneur, everyone can benefit from attending!
One of the biggest challenges for an entrepreneur is accountability. Groups meet weekly both online and in-person at each Hera Hub location. Everyone attending has an opportunity to share what they are working on, what they want to commit to, and to ask for support and resources.
Hera Hub provides daily chunks of time in which members are invited to sign on, say hello, set forth their goals, and work in 25-min “Pomodoro” intervals to be productive and briefly check in with each other. Having these predesignated Virtual Coworking appointments set aside on their calendars to accomplish their tasks has proven to be an effective productivity and time management technique for many of our members in all walks of life.
