With organized activities, both in-person and virtual, the members get to know each other on a personal level first, rather than just as a potential client pool. Aggressive sales tactics are actually dissuaded, but Theme Days exist on the Facebook Group Page to promote your business. The Facebook Group boasts an incredibly active and engaged community, with an over 75% participation rate from group members.
Its current incarnation was established by Christine Hull at the beginning of 2018. The group has since experienced exponential growth and morphed into a dynamic group of active, engaged women from all walks of life, in all types of businesses. Whether you are part of an MLM as a “side hustle” to your day job or to supplement family income, a business professional, or an employee of a larger company looking to expand your network, there is a place for you in the MAWB!
