Ladies, it is a difficult time for many - but guess what?---- We are all in this together!.
We all have different lives, different goals and different challenges. But we all seek success. And if you knew you could easily help out a fellow #supportivewoman I hope you are the kind of woman who would do it. if you you thought "of course, I would help if I could." Well guess what...here is how you can help out local small women businesses....ant the best part - it is EASY and FREE! So I challenge you to do the follwoing four things at least once a week (daily would be terrific).
Four free, simple things to do to help local small businesses!
1. Write a review Did you have a positive experience with a local small businees? Love the food? Favorite local boutique? Express it on their reviews! Yelp, google reviews and FB reviews are so helpful for small businesses. Sharing your experience verbally for the public to see will mean more than you can imagine. Testimonials are important for any business and truly make a difference to in helping small businesses stand out from the crowd!
2. Follow, like, comment and share their social media accounts
The more the merrier! It takes one click and helps build an audience for that business and give them credibility within the industry. Most of the time you’ll receive first news of deals by following your favorite brands + businesses. See something good on their feed? Share it! Many small businesses have new product or offer deals. Did you know a simple share widens the online exposure for that business! It lets a new audience see their company. Share words of encouragement or genuine compliments on their social posts. This helps boost engagement and lets more people see their posts.
3. Recommend them to a friend: Word of mouth brings the best customers.
Who do you know that would be an ideal customer for some of your favorite local businesses? Tag your friends and family on the posts you see. Or send them a quick message telling them about the business.
4. Attend Girl's Night Out social
The monthly events give local women businesses a chance to showcase their products and services in a social setting while giving you a chance to learn about something new, make new connections and gather some positive inspiration.

About Mandy Michelle Carter
Hey Y'all - My roots are in Tennessee, so I can be a little soft spoken and I have a true southern belle twang who despite my journalism career, frequently uses the contraction you all. I left my hometown 2 decades ago with some lofty goals for a young girl. What it got me was a BA in Communications and minor in Journalism from Mississippi State University in Starkville, MS (Go Bulldogs!), a 10 year marriage, a successful marketing career and two beautiful kids. Fast forward 2 years later ----> that marriage ended, and I left the career that took too much time away from my kids. So I refocused on my dreams for me and my kids. I am now a freelance writer, Regional Marketing Manager for Sky Zones Nationwide and a part time model in addition to my role with Housewives in the City.
About Gisselle Glaser
I am American Colombian that was born and raised in Florida, and I spend my childhood summers in Colombia. I have traveled internationally to Colombia, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Jamaica, Italy, France, Monaco, Monte Carlo, Canada, and Spain. I studied interior design at the Art Institute and worked in commercial design for 9 years. Moved to Seattle for 5 years, became a mom to a blue eye boy that has stolen my heart. Stayed home with him for 3 yrs. In Seattle I started refurbishing beautiful antique furniture. I got into 2 boutiques and then my position grew to helping these boutique market their stores. I helped them with events, social media, and space planning for the stores. On the 5th year of being in Seattle we can back to Florida. I was introduce to a lifestyle brand India Hicks and a Paris jewelry designer that befriended me through social media. I then signed up to get luxury one of kind accessories made by women for women into women's wardrobe that wanted accessories that were not mass produce and not in stores. This is how my own boutique was started and being brand ambassador to women brands became to be my brand.
About Angel Houston
I was raised in Missouri where I earned my BBA in Business Management from Evangel University. After a long and cold winter, I used an atlas to blindly pick out a new city. My finger landed on Austin, Texas, so I moved there 3 months later. I furthered my studies in photography at The University of Texas (Hook’em Horns!) while continuing my career in public accounting. Long story short – I met my true love a year later at a charity event, in Austin, we got married on St. Croix and now here we are on Pompano Beach. esides traveling, I enjoy spending time with our two amazing dogs, Brady the Bichon and Buddy the Golden. They are both 14 years old and are obsessed with raw carrots.
FYI: "Houswives" in just a catchy name
You don't have to be a housewife to be an active participant in our group or to attend any of the events and discussions and we encourage divirsity and inclusion. We welcome all ages, professions, races and ideas of all women. Many of us aren’t originally from here. Let’s get together and help make a difference in our South Florida community.
