Memphis chapter

Are you looking to connect locally with other women in business? Do you own your own business? Maybe you are in sales for a larger corporation? Are you a professional woman looking to be around others or just excited about surrounding yourself with like minded women in an incredible community atmosphere? We have you covered! Meeting locally gives you the additional opportunity to connect with women, network, be motivated and inspired, as well as collaborate with women right around the corner. As women, when we ban together to lift each other up, we become stronger as a community.

If you are looking to immerse yourself in a community of growth focused women who are going to encourage you and support you in your success then TNWC is for you!

-Danielle Ballard


Being a member of TNWC will bless you with other Business Owners that may have experiences that will help you in your business process, referrals, friendships and an overall value of being connected to other Women business owners in your community!

-Lisa Biles Thomas


TNWC is such a needed concept for women, especially as we are all more isolated these days due to technology, working from home, etc. TNWC is full of amazing women who are all hungry for connection and friendship. Everyone is so encouraging and supportive of other women, so it’s a great place to make new friends, gain business for yourself, and find businesses that can help you in your own life!

-Mandi McCoy


TN Women Connect has been INCREDIBLY beneficial to my personal and professional life. As a small business owner, it can often feel like I am on an island making strategic decisions by myself. The wealth of knowledge and experience at any given event provides me with an opportunity to learn and see things from other viewpoints. Although I put on an outgoing front, I am naturally introverted – my goal at each event is to get to know one new person – this has allowed me build my community and has opened the door to many additional networks, which is crucial for my business. My confidence has grown exponentially because the more events I attend, the more comfortable I have become voicing what I do and why I do it. The events are fun and inviting, I have always felt genuinely welcomed and like I have a whole group of women cheering me on. The membership directory has been a FANTASTIC way to connect with women all throughout Metro Nashville – I love grabbing coffee in a 1:1 setting so I can learn ways I can help grow other women’s businesses.

– Erin Arnett, KB Elliott Financial Advisors


TNWC has been a game changer for me, my business AND my personal life! I’ve gained multiple new clients ($$) and, what’s more, I’ve gained some really great friends. The ROI has been well worth it! I can’t recommend TNWC enough to anyone who is looking for new business, education and networking with other ambitious, driven business women!

– Tina Phillips, 615 Innovations


There has never been a group of women that I have met so many wonderful friends from and so quickly! I have felt so supported by this community, both personally and professionally, as I opened two new businesses this past year! Who knew that networking could be so much fun? I am forever grateful to have found my community of incredible women and excited to continue to grow along with Tennessee Women Connect!
