Entrepreneurial women. Collaborative conversations. Establishing relationships. Celebrating wins. Sharing resources.

Sugarland Women in Business is a brand new networking group of professional women founded in January 2017 by Business & Life Coach Elizabeth Barbour. After 2 1/2 years of successfully growing the Sienna Women in Business Group, enough interest has grown to open up a new chapter in Sugarland! 

Regular meetings are held on the 4th Monday of every month at different locations throughout Sugarland, TX to showcase different businesses. 

Members come from a variety of backgrounds and represent a diversity of professions. That list includes but is not limited to: restauranteurs, realtors, retail store owners, photographers, studio owners, travel agents, interior designers, coaches, counselors, social workers, professional organizers, virtual administrators, spa service providers and more!

What makes SLWIB different?

A collaborative approach to networking.  (Not competitive.) We believe there is enough business for everyone and the more we help one another, the better off we all are. There are no restrictions on how many people per profession can attend the group.

A relational approach to networking.  (Not transactional). We want to get to know you for the long haul and not just do business one time. People do business with people they know, like and trust. We foster those connections here.

A masterminding component to all meetings. We try to incorporate 10-20 minutes of mini-mastermind sessions in every SLWIB meeting. We choose a different topic each month to dig into and it gives members an opportunity to work on a challenge in their business and seek advice, support and resources from fellow members.
