We provide free events for mothers in our community to help showcase, support and create more business exposure for themselves in a professional way. These events range from keynote presentations, panel discussions, and professionally facilitated roundtables.
Our event topics have included goal setting, strategic sales and growing business connections through generous acts. We’ve hosted close to 20 events with over 1,000 guests in that time and have showcased local mothers in business as sponsors with each event we do.
By sharing knowledge and stories of passion and growth, the group supports each other to find the balance between their personal and professional lives.
In addition to our events, we have an online directory available which offers many benefits to our members. Scholarships are available to members only to help support and grow their businesses within the Sea to Sky Corridor. Scholarships are awarded to recipients in $1,000 increments and we gave out two of them in May 2019 and three of them in March 2020 for a total of $5000.
Having been awarded the Squamish Mother’s in business scholarship has been instrumental in helping me grow my business. In invested my funds into google ads and my overall website traffic went up 54% while my overall revenue from google searches has risen 113%. These statistics are key in demonstrating that, from this support, I will now be able to continually grow my business as more customers all across Canada are being driven to by online store.
