Join My Favorite Networking Group for Mom Business Owners
Welcome to episode 215 of The Determined Mom Show. I am your host, Amanda Tento, and I am so excited to be sharing with you all about Mob Nation. What is the Mob Nation? It is my favorite business networking group, and it is literally All about moms and business owners. So M O B stands for mom-owned businesses.
So all of the business owners in this networking group are moms and a lot of them focus on moms, being a mom in their business. But a lot of them are just, like real estate agents and contractors and anything that you can imagine, they are here and it is such a huge and diverse group.
I love it. And they’ve been featured in many news organizations throughout the country. But to be honest, the thing that I love the most is you really get to know these women like family. I’ve been involved in the MOB in some way for probably about two and a half years. And Aria, who is the founder, the original founder.
It was on the podcast in, I think early 2020, and a lot of the guests that have been on our podcast are actually women that I’ve met in the mob. So such a great networking opportunity. I have resources out of the wazoo from being involved in the mob and knowing this person does that, and just getting to know these women over the last few years has been amazing.
So I wanna take a minute to read their mission statement so you understand what is going on with the mob. The MOB Nation is an anti-racist organization.
We are a safe, inclusive space that welcomes anyone that identifies as a mother and owns any size or type of business. We protect our members of the LGBTQ IA plus community. No hate, bigotry, or racism is ever tolerated in our community. This is such a great group of women.
There are many things that you can do in MOB One. Things that you can do right now are you can create a free directory listing and I’ve included the link to that in the show notes. So you can just go and grab your free listing and at least be listed on their website. And this will give you some SEO juice as well.
So that’s another bonus there. So they have a very popular website so you can get some SEO juice there. They have a free Facebook group that has a lot of resources in there where you can find others. Mobs or MOB own businesses to solicit. So if you’re looking for something in particular, you’re looking for a copywriter, you can jump in that group and say, Hey, does anybody know a mom’s own business or MOB, as they call it, that does Copywrite and.
People will chime in and say, Oh, this person. And then you can go and find them. They also have a LinkedIn group, a Discord server, and so many different things. They have a subreddit. And there is also a podcast. They have a lunch information kind of thing, like where you can listen to different speakers at lunch.
Lunch and learn. I think they call. and there are just 1,000,001 things you can do. The other thing that I love is that it used to be primarily in person. So before 2020, I had started my chapter of the MOB, not my own.
I started as a director of the mob in Olympia, Washington in 2020 and the very day. That it was March 17th, 2020. I’ll never forget it. The very day that I was supposed to host my first networking event, it got canceled because of Covid. So that is how it goes. And the company, the organization has transformed and gone with the. Networking, like the virtual networking event.
So now you don’t ever have to worry about missing an event and you don’t have to worry about going in person. They do occasionally hold in-person networking events, and those are primarily in the Pacific Northwest. However, I think they’re up to about three times per week for virtual networking events.
It is. Worth it to join the mob even if you are just for right now, to get started, create your free directory listing and join the free Facebook group. See if it’s for you. If you like, kinda like the vibe and enjoy the people and those kinds of things because. It is a business changer if you are a mom-owned business.
So I hope that you join us in the mob and I just wanted to share it with you because I know a lot of the audience is moms, who own businesses and moms, business owners like you, I wanted to make sure that you have the access to that resource. I would love to see you as a mom. Talk to you soon and have a great week.
