Minding Her Business is a series of networking events to connect the new generation of women entrepreneurs. Initiated by 3R Media, this series was designed with the purpose to foster an empowering community of women entrepreneurs to share, inspire and educate each other on nurturing their respective businesses.
The monthly MHB sessions will be themed and intentionally curated with speakers from the respective industry. Each interactive networking session will be guided by women who have walked the walk and talked the talk in running their own business empires.
In the fourth series of Minding Her Business, we will explore the theme of Community.
