Aloha Wahines,

Happy 2013!! There are a lot of exciting things happening for Social Wahines, included a rebrand and relaunch (more details coming soon!). In the mean time, I've been hearing from many of you inquiring about the next WAHINE INCUBATOR WORKSHOP. I'm working on dates now, so if you're interested please email me ASAP so I can be sure there's space and select a time that works best for the group. Please see below for information on the workshop.

WHAT IS THE WAHINE INCUBATOR WORKSHOP?
Are you launching something new or need help taking your existing business, project, or idea to the next level? If you're feeling stuck, or need help getting your ideas out of your head and into the world, you will find the Incubator process to be:

1. Your own personal think tank, focus & accountability group.
2. Create FORWARD MOVEMENT toward attaining your goals.
3. Expand your vision and zero in on what really needs to happen.
4. Meet like-minded women and design your business the way you want it.

The Wahine Incubator Workshop is a 4-week workshop that meets 3-hours/week and will help you expand and clarify your projects and ideas in order to take your business to the next level. Ideas need support and action in order to thrive and grow and the Incubator will help you to cultivate your dreams.

The workshop is equal parts focus group, resource-sharing, support, community, and strategic business planning. You can't really imagine it until you experience it, but the magic just happens. During the workshop, you will complete a fun and creative series of exercises for yourself and for each other, and discover the profound bond women traveling down their own paths share. You'll leave with a wider vision than you ever new was possible, new branding ideas, and a plan of action to take things to the next level!

WHY JOIN?
1. Take a dream, business or project to the next level.
2. Get valuable referrals for your products and services.
3. Build connections, resources, gain wisdom and connect with a like-minded community of women.
4. Have your own think tank or advisory board to ask questions and bounce ideas off of.
5. GAIN support, tools, resources, and the inspiration and encouragement needed to take that next step.
6. Develop your elevator pitch, brand map, & goal-attaining plan.
7. Gain VISION, CLARITY, ACTION, & CELEBRATION!

How Does the Process Work?
The Wahine Incubator is an intensive 4-week program consisting of 6 to 10 women, a facilitator and a series of exercises designed to get you moving in the right direction. The process includes homework, exercises and the community needed to make focused progress toward your goals. Cost is $250 for Members/ $350 for non-members

Who Should Take the Wahine Incubator? The Incubator is for women who:
-Have an exciting idea to launch
-Have an existing business to grow
-Have a book or creative project to develop
-Are freelancers or consultants looking to monetize services, refine offerings and make valuable connections.

-It’s also a for women who are at a crossroads in their career and want to make a significant change, but need help clarifying a new direction.

WAHINE INCUBATOR WORKSHOP TESTIMONIALS:
It’s easy when starting a new venture or exploring a new idea to hunker down and spend weeks, months, even years letting it marinate, agonizing over details, and being hampered by doubt and insecurity. The Wahine Incubator Workshop is based on a simple premise " that setting aside time, thinking about your priorities and progress and most importantly sharing them with others has a way of dissolving doubts, sparking motivation, and shrinking barriers to molehill size. Better yet, the act of sharing has a way of improving your ideas and bringing up new ones that you may never have thought of on your own. In going through the exercises and spending four sessions with like-minded, professional women, I not only cleared the cobwebs from long-held goals and actually started pursuing them, but also found myself with a new pool of friends and resources that can support me AND hold me accountable when my progress slows. Everyone could use a little of that medicine! Mahalo Danielle Scherman and Social Wahines for a wonderful, transformative workshop.

I just completed the Social Wahine Incubator and I have to say it was fantastic. What an AMAZING group of women and what a great way to really flesh out what steps I can take to grow my current business and launch my new one. I made connections, learned steps to getting focused on what needs to be done and got some candid and much needed feedback. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to launch a new business or gain perspective on their current one.

My week has been amazing thanks to the Social Wahine Incubator Series I just graduated from. It was worth the investment for sure. The innovative platform to help women will give you the stepping stone you need, it is fun & exciting, jam-packed with lots of information, and will help you make great connections to get you that certain connection to whatever you need. You can turn your passions to profits with this program. Thank you Danielle.

The Wahine Incubator is the best system for women both for personal and business endeavors. The program allows women to become closer to each other for amazing support. You will also experience a fun way to make money. What a fabulous theory Social Wahine's has come up with! Looking forward to our "graduation" on Wednesday.

The Social Wahine's Incubator workshop last night was fantastic. I thought the role-playing and fine tuning we did on our elevator pitches was very helpful. And, every person had good ideas to contribute. I used my newly improved, finely tuned elevator pitch today and have my first sponsor meeting next week!

Any gal starting a new business or even looking to grow their current business can benefit from this workshop. Keep up the good work. It was AWESOME!

Danielle Scherman holds the space for women to share their creative and personal visions with each other, and ultimately, with themselves! I wasn't sure what to expect when I showed up to the class, but found myself inspired by the women around me. I rediscovered ideas and connections while considering resources for others, and found answers to questions that I hadn't had the time to think up yet amongst the ebb and flow of conversations during and between classes. The exercises provided a good frame for introspection, and also made it easier to ask others for support and guidance, while giving an opportunity to share from my own experiences. I felt this workshop make a difference in my own experiences from the first week, and it's been amazing to see continued progress and forward movement in my own projects and in the others that took the class with me. The Business Incubator is a dynamic experience where women connect, learn from, support and dream together. I would recommend it to any woman interested in expanding her circle.

I was prepared to ask for a refund before I attended my first Incubator night because I am so used to business workshops that don’t deliver. Much to my delight not only did I not ask for the refund, but I attended all four classes and am looking forward to connecting with the ladies in my class for a long time to come. The Social Wahine Business Incubator is a fantastic way to jumpstart your current business or to brainstorm a new idea. Whether you are a business veteran or are scared to death about sharing the embryo of an idea, the Incubator is absolutely a step you must take on your journey. What I liked most was being surrounded by gifted women with amazing energy who understood what it was to dream big when others in my life question why I don’t just get a job. The camaraderie and desire to help everyone was infectious, energizing and a fabulous way to spend my time and money. I have already taken giant steps towards launching what I know will be a multi million dollar business because of spending four consecutive weeks in the Incubator. I recommend and heartily encourage all women to sign up for the next workshop.
