MILLBURN, NJ – The Millburn/Short Hills chapter of the women’s business group B.I.G. (Believe Inspire Grow) invites local businesswomen to its next meeting on Monday, Jan. 6, at 9:30 a.m. at Prominent Properties Sotheby's International Realty in Short Hills. The group welcomes newcomers to attend the meeting at no charge.

“The beauty of B.I.G. is that there is a lot of sharing, a lot of collaborating,” said group co-leader Mallika Malhotra. “It’s not competitive.  We really do want to help each other ‘s businesses thrive.”

The group meets monthly and serves as a support group, an educational resource and a networking collaborative.

“Our group is very diverse,” co-leader Joy Chang said. “We have seasoned entrepreneurs who have been in business for 15 or 20 years, and then there are newer members that are just starting to think about doing something for themselves, so they come to be inspired and maybe test the waters with an idea that they have. It’s a good group.”

This Monday’s meeting will offer each attendee the opportunity to present a goal that has been set for the coming year. Members will offer feedback and ideas to each other in an effort to help achieve those goals. Most monthly meetings feature a guest speaker and an educational component, but this first meeting of the new year will focus on goal-setting. 

“This Monday’s meeting will be a great way for newcomers to see how B.I.G. works,” Malhotra said.  “It’s a safe, collaborative community where women want ot empower each other to do something and do it well.”

Prominent Properties Sotheby's International Realty is located at 555 Millburn Ave., Short Hills. Learn more at www.believeinspiregrow.com or email Mallika Malhotra at mallikamalhotra@yahoo.com or Joy Chang at joy_chang@comcast.net.
