Is It Right For You?

Since 2011, Her Corner has been using templates and frameworks to teach women business owners how to grow their companies. We have been curating small groups of business owners for nearly a decade and our programs and frameworks have helped over 1,000 business owners grow their companies across multiple industries, disciplines, and geographies.

The frameworks and methodologies are constantly evolving and developing based on current economic trends and small business markets.

Join a Her Corner Business Peer Group if you’re looking for:

  • A private space to focus on your business 
  • A network of women business owners committed to growth 
  • Proven practices to help you grow your business  
  • Flexible private coaching for when you need added support

2021 Curriculum & Pricing

Since March 2020, Her Corner has completely updated and changed its content curriculum to help businesses assess, pivot, and reposition their businesses for growth.

Today’s curriculum and frameworks are brand new and developed based on current market conditions and hundreds of hours of practical research and discussions with small business owners.

Participation in a peer group starts at $225 per month.
