New Year, Same Goals?

Power Filled Goals and Strategy for 2019

Tuesday 5 February 2019, 10am - 12pm, Baulkham Hills

HDBM FEBRUARY NETWORKING EVENT_ New Year, Same Goals_ Power filled Goals and Strategy for 2019

It’s that time of year where we revisit, refresh and reset our goals and plans…. AGAIN! Do you find yourself setting the same, or similar, goals year after year? Are you continually disappointed or self-critical that you haven’t achieved those goals?  

Let's turn it on its head with an easy formula for successful goals!

In this insightful and inspiring event, we will:

  • Provide an easy formula for setting power filled goals
  • Expose the types of behaviours that derail even the most well-thought out goals
  • Create mindset strategies to blast through any self-doubt and mindset obstacles to success
  • Review and re-set (or create) your 2019 goals
  • Create a doable, effective plan to get you the results you want in 2019

Bring the goals or ideas for your business in 2019 and we’ll work on them during the presentation. You’ll walk away with a well-designed, achievable plan to make 2019 your most satisfying year yet!

During the event you can network with 50+ like-minded local business mums, with structured, fun networking activities. Bring business cards for your chance to win a “Pitch It!” slot to pitch your business to the Group at our next event.

All new Group members are welcome so please don't be shy!

What Our HDBM Members Say…

Wonderfully supportive

Hills District Business Mums is a wonderfully supportive networking group that combines many of my networking goals – mixing with wonderful people, learning through the great speaker line up, meeting great mutually beneficial referral partners, and giving me the platform to showcase my expertise to aid many small business owners within the group.

The Hills District Business Mums networking events are a must on my calendar, due to the great vibe that I always experience. It’s lovely to meet people going through similar business ups and downs in a relaxed friendly environment.

Highly recommend

I’ve been a part of HDBM since launching my business in September 2014, and I’ve always found the group to be extremely supportive and a fantastic resource! I’m always learning new things – whether it’s via the friendly Facebook group or via the empowering networking events.

After every networking event, I find myself feeling inspired and re-invigorated about my business. All of the women in the room are extremely approachable and relatable – probably because they are all seeking to find the elusive balance between business, motherhood, and life in general, just like me! And the events feature fantastic guest speakers on various business-related topics as well, so I always walk away with a piece (or a whole cake!) of new knowledge.

I highly recommend HDBM for anyone starting a new business, wanting to expand their business, or simply looking for a supportive group of women to help them along their business journey.

Wealth of knowledge

I’ve been a member of HDBM for many years now, and still learn from the wealth of experience and knowledge that is in the group. Everyone is so supportive and happy to see each others’ achievements – one of my closest friends in the group is a fellow florist!

The HDBM events get you out networking with fellow Mums who know what its like to run a business (while changing a nappy, and doing pick ups!) You will make life long friends as well as be in awe at what your fellow Mums have achieved… fantastic ideas, great support… and feel free to grab a Mentor!

You know the group is doing something right when our members include Mayors, Mermaids and Academy Award Winning Writers…not to mention 5000+ Mums!
