JEM Network Membership Levels and Benefits
Any mom who lives in New Jersey and either owns her own business or is looking to start one is welcome to join the Jersey Entrepreneurial Moms Facebook group. Our private group will connect you with thousands of JEMs who are eager to advise and support you and who can relate to you on countless levels. You’ll find our JEM Facebook group to be extremely active and lively, with daily support and motivation from like-minded moms who are paving their own path to success, while keeping community ahead of competition. We offer four levels of membership which allow you to choose which level of benefits will give you and your business the most value. You can upgrade to another level at any time.
This free membership level includes access to the JEM private Facebook group, which will connect you with thousands of other JEMs and give you the ability to participate in discussions, plus have access to active support and motivation from other members.
As a member of the JEM Facebook group, you’ll have 3 weekly opportunities to promote and grow your business through the following themed discussion threads:
Work Together Wednesday: This weekly thread fosters teamwork and collaboration between the JEMs. It is also an opportunity to connect with another JEM who might have experienced the same challenges or successes and feels honored to help/advise you. This is also your time to list job openings you might have, vendors wanted for an upcoming vendor fair, or even request a JEM to collaborate with you as a guest blogger or event co-host.
Sell It Saturday: This weekly thread is the opportunity for JEMs to share any current sales, upcoming events, open houses, workshops, galas, or even exclusive JEM promotions!
Showcase Sunday: Weekly thread that allows each JEM to brag about either a recent achievement, latest blog, or your best work!
Topaz Level members are also invited to attend JEM events including:
JEMs Night Out: At these evening events, 25 to 75+ JEMs meet for Happy Hour at restaurants/lounges at locations throughout New Jersey to network, mingle and make new friends. Two JEMs (Sapphire Level and above) are showcased at each night out in a fun, casual, and relaxed way. These events are free to attend as each JEM pays for her own food and drink.
Business Workshops: These interactive events will help you develop your business skills while educating, motivating, and inspiring you. We cover topics such as sales, social media marketing, blogging, time management, accounting and many more. Locations vary throughout the state and are often held at elegant and unique locations to help you feel pampered and empowered. Workshops are ticketed events and there is a fee to attend.
Mommy and Me: These fun events cater to both our children and us as we get to watch our kids have a blast while they make new friends and we make new connections. We have fun playing, singing, and learning from the two JEMs that are featured at each event either by being a hostess or leading us in a discussion or activity. Most of these events are ticketed and have a small fee or are free to attend.
Flash Classes: Periodically with only a few days’ notice we will hold a mini business workshop for 10-15 JEMs in an intimate location. We’ll dive into one focus area per session such as Facebook ads, Instagram hashtagging, overcoming objections, etc. These impromptu events have a small fee to attend and are held at various locations/venues.
Vendor Fair: Each fall, JEMs host a yearly fair where 50+ JEMS are showcased and featured in our public venue where hundreds of people can attend. These events offer items for purchase, services for hire, entertainment, food, raffles, prizes, and more. The fair is family friendly and free to attend! (JEMs pay a fee for vendor space.)
