Get ready to meet your business besties, expand your entrepreneurial toolkit, and seriously accelerate your brand’s visibility
You’ve got the neverending daily tasks it takes to actually run your business, like…
Finally, we have the biggest struggles of all:
→ Connect with hundreds of smart, kind potential business besties, creative allies, collaborative partners, and industry experts
→ Feel seen, heard, and supported among fellow women entrepreneurs who understand the highs and lows of building a business from the ground up
→ Level up your skills in every segment of your business (goodbye, spending your Saturday night struggling to write a new About page!)
→ Take the guesswork out of getting in front of new and growing audiences – ideally, the ones that are full of people eager to champion women-owned brands like yours
→ Accelerate your overall visibility and brand awareness (aka get noticed!) by an engaged community that’s more than 50,000 strong
It’s the only membership you need if you’re a female founder ready to cultivate your network, level up your business prowess, and expand your visibility.
Inside, you’ll be part of a warm, friendly community that’s ready to help you feel seen and heard, hold you accountable, cheer you on, and virtually offer you a shoulder when things get tough (aka the times you start wondering if it would be easier to just dust off your resume and head back to corporate life).
you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade your membership and nab a listing in the meticulously curated WAWO Directory – where values-driven consumers and small businesses cheerleaders flock to discover, shop, and support women-owned brands like yours.
Interested in applying? Yay! Here’s what we look for:

Here, we’re all about using our connections, platforms, and resources to help women-owned businesses gain visibility – while also making it easy for values-driven customers to discover and buy from them!
Why? Because I understand the highs and lows that come with starting – and building – a business all too well!
Back in the early days of my business, finding community was a struggle. I needed a place where I could feel comfortable asking questions and leaning on people who truly understood what I was going through.
And, since I was just starting out and didn’t have much extra money at my disposal, I needed a community that was both accessible *and* affordable.
Did something like that even exist? Apparently no, it did not! So, when I couldn’t find the community I needed, I decided to just create it. That’s how the WAWO Sisterhood was born.
Later, when the COVID-19 pandemic brought our beloved in-person events to a screeching halt, I knew brands needed a way to keep building personal connections with their customers. Meanwhile, consumers also wanted a way to make values-aligned purchasing fun and easy. Enter: the WAWO Small Business Directory.
Now, the most magical pieces of the WAWO Sisterhood and the WAWO Small Business Directory are coming together to form the latest evolution of the WAWO Network.
It’s where you’ll find community, education, support, careful curation, and accelerated visibility opportunities – all in one dreamy network that offers women entrepreneurs the tools they need to succeed at every stage of their business journey. 🥰️
If you’re a woman entrepreneur or creative, you’re welcome here! We’re talking product-based businesses, service-based businesses, e-commerce businesses, content creators, freelancers, shop owners, solopreneurs, makers, do-ers, copywriters, marketers, coaches, full-time, part-time, beginners, seasoned experts, and so on! If you’re a kind, caring person with a purpose-driven business, we want you to sit with us. 😎
Yes! While more than 85% of our community is based in the United States, the membership is absolutely open to businesses outside of the US.
Since time zones are a thing, here’s a quick overview of when most of our events take place:

Basically, if you feel like the WAWO Network is a good fit for your goals, we’d love to have you apply.
Right now, membership is offered month-to-month. We may offer an annual membership option in the future.
While we wish we could guarantee you lots of sales as a result of joining the WAWO Network, that’s just not something we can ethically or realistically promise. What we can promise, though, is that Team WAWO will do everything in our power to help you increase your visibility while inspiring and encouraging our community – and the general public – to shop and support women-owned brands (including yours!).
The WAWO Network does NOT involve a Facebook group – yay! We actually custom-built the WAWO Network and Directory interface based 100% on the community’s needs. 😎
That means you won’t have any fussy algorithms to deal with. No getting distracted by photos of your friend’s adorable puppy/baby/house and forgetting why you got online in the first place. No accidentally seeing your uncle’s latest conspiracy theory and disturbing your inner peace for the next three days.
Yes! Here’s a quick glance at the people who make up this amazing community:
Through the power of our platforms, online presence, connections, and resources, we’re here to support you in generating more brand awareness, visibility, and growth. 🎉
