Job Overview

We’re here to help mums in business, do business. Across Australia, there are hundreds of thousands of small businesses run by mums. But when you’re doing it alone, it’s not easy to succeed. That’s where we come in. Our vision is to inspire women to realise success in their businesses and their lives by creating Australia’s most connected and empowered community of mums in business.

We do this by providing members access to networking opportunities, educational content, business services and exclusive third-party supplier deals to grow their businesses.

We believe in family first, achieving business well-being and supporting others to succeed. We have a highly engaged community of thousands that we’re really proud of! We are passionate about bringing them together to be stronger as individuals, through our collective approach.
