The girlfriends approach to building businesses.

We started our Marin Women at Work journey about five years ago with the idea of creating a group focused on celebrating women in business; and now to share our experience and resources we have added Sonoma Women at Work. Our goal was to not only be a direct referral source for each other but also to share our personal stories and paths leading us to the women we are today.
As business owners it is so easy to get caught up in the day to day grind of running a small business and sometimes we forget to look up and appreciate what we have accomplished. We can also feel apprehension and isolation, or not as successful as we should be, or alone in the process.
And that is what MWAW & SWAW are all about. A place to connect, to share, to feel supported, to learn and grow, to build friendships and of course have some fun. Cuz being a small business owner is not easy!
It is our hope that by reading this you will continue to follow us; to support our members and to grow along with us. We hope that you will find connections, stories that resonate and maybe even help heal. 
In every blog and podcast you will find a mix of business support and personal journeys. We call it "Life Happens" because we believe that what we have gone through in the past (and even currently) has made us stronger and more resilient and hopefully we can support you too.
Check out our podcasts at: Women at Work, Life Happens
Much success,
Karen Kilian
Founder Marin Women at Work & Sonoma Women at Work
