Raising kids while you chase your career or business dreams is far from easy! Sharing your challenges and seeking support from other like-minded mums can not only give you different perspectives and a sounding board but also make you feel like you are not alone, in what can be a very lonely journey. To help you find your tribe, Sara Keli shares five of the best online communities for working mums and mums in business.

MUMS&Co

MUMS&CO is a membership platform for mums in business. They run coffee meet ups around the country where mums in business can get together in real life, as well as running the Inner Circle Facebook group to connect online. The MPowered conference, happening in Sydney in June is also an opportunity to immerse yourself in business learning for a day while meeting other business mums.

The National Business Brilliance Awards and Conference, now running for five years, offers expert speakers combined with ample networking time, all capped off with a celebration of mums rocking their business’ at the awards evening. The Bizzy Mums Club is a Facebook group to ask advice and connect with other mums.

Mums with Hustle

The Mums with Hustle podcast is a wealth of tips, knowledge and inspiration for mums in business. If you are a working mum it is definitely worth having a listen as many of the guests talk about how they manage work and family life, self care and other topics that all mums should be prioritising. The Mums with Hustle Biz Club Facebook group is a quite a hive of activity and support.
