Grown-Up Girlfriends in Business

ggf business

Last year, several of us attended a conference.  There were quite a few women who couldn’t attend, but were interested.  After the event, a handful of us came together for coffee so that the few of us who went could share what we had learned at the one-day conference.  As our conversation continued and we talked about supporting each other in our business activities, we quickly determined that we all struggled with not just our understanding of social media, but the desire of wanting to use it well and take advantage of all it had to offer.

We decided to leverage our learning in numbers and tackle the countless hours we spent staring at our screens being unproductive and eliminate the feeling of being alone.  We wanted to create an environment that supported each other while beginning a path to mastering the control of this ever changing, fast-paced phenomenon that we have no choice but to harness.

It has been almost one year since our small group started to meet.   We began with a social media overview and then moved on to Facebook, twitter, google+ and Pinterest.  As much as I use each outlet, with every meeting I have learned something new.

However, outside of our group meetings, I also began to pick up tidbits of information that proved to be very valuable from ‘Grown-Up Girlfriends’ who have been willing to share, guide and direct.  What we’ve created is a social media discussion and we will be continuing this activity in a new format with our First Speed Networking & Navigating the Social Boom on Monday, May 6th, 2013.
