Meet some of our passionate members who kindly provided us with wonderful feedback about why they love Venus so much and how it has been instrumental in the success of their business growth.
That day I attended my first Venus Network meeting has literally changed my life. Not one to be overly dramatic and as grand as that statement sounds it is true. The results have been incredible! My freelance writing business which specializes in website content and marketing (articles, blogs, bios etc) has quite simply taken off.
My network of business associates has increased and my own, new unique group of special women who are all willing to share their experiences, good and bad, I feel as if I have finally found “that place”. You know that place where people’s (mainly partners – bless their sore ears) eyes don’t glaze over or can’t quite understand why you are getting so frustrated/excited/animated about your business ideas; a place where other like-minded women love your passion and stay awake whilst you talk about them. A group meeting can be like a damn good therapy session. Every Venus networking group I go to I walk out feeling uplifted and reenergized.

Kimberley directly credits Venus with doubling her business in the past 12 months, through the referrals she has received. And because of the fortnightly meetings, these referrals have now become more consistent so she can begin to create a pipeline and prepare for the future (including recently hiring a nanny!)
And indirectly, Kimberley says that through the advice, support and confidence boost she receives at every meeting, her business has more than tripled.
Kimberley owns Sauce Catering, a catering company on the North Shore. She now has a team of 8 and is experiencing exceptional growth.
What I LOVE about the Venus Networking Group is that it creates business connections exclusively amongst business women. I feel encouraged and empowered to grow my business and myself.
Meeting motivated women brimming with enthusiasm for their business is inspiring and has added value to my business and clients. I highly recommend the Venus Networking Group as a marketing tool to grow your business.

“I truly love the experience that is Venus. As a business woman, it can be a lonely road and you can often feel overwhelmed by the many responsibilities of life. It is refreshing to connect with like-minded women and have a forum within which to share ideas, triumphs and challenges. Thank you so very sincerely for bringing to life this unifying network that helps to make the business world a much warmer place”.

Being a member of Venus has given me the opportunity to meet so many amazing women. I have found that I have a whole new support network out there to help me in business. Meeting the ladies on a fortnightly basis raises my energy levels and keeps me motivated to achieving my goals.
Venus certainly works to bring me business, several of my group fitness classes are mini Venus meetings. Referrals are the number one way to do business and this is what Venus provides me… thanks Venus I love being part of this amazing group.

“Venus is so much more than referrals. Ultimately we all want to grow our businesses, and referral based marketing is a great way of doing this.
Why should you go to a Venus meeting to do this? Because the women around the table get you. The relationships develop over time thanks to the unique business model Venus adheres to, and through these relationships you get to know your fellow members, who double as your sales team.”
“They know you, and importantly they trust you… the cool part happens here where they refer you! So there’s the box beside ‘Grow your business’ ticked. How about ‘Grow yourself’? This is the part I love! I get to watch women develop their confidence, and feel supported as they do so. A Venus meeting provides its members with numerous opportunities to fine-tune on both personal and professional levels, again and again. Inevitably the growth of that member on so many levels happens – that is the wow factor!”
