Founder's Note

"Women love to share. They were the original social network, even before the Internet existed."

Welcome to NetworkBe!

Women are constantly going through life transitions and reinventing themselves. We are either dating, starting new careers, getting married, having children, or going through a divorce, caring for elderly parents, experiencing an empty nest, grieving, etc. We need trusted information to help get us through these major life-changing stages, either to know what to do, or just to know we are not alone. We need each other.

We were the original social network….way before there was an internet. Truth is, we share the most amount of information and offer the best advice to each other. This is just one of the reasons I started NetworkBe – to connect women who are going through these life-changing transitions. Life can get hard, and you can bet that one of us has walked in your shoes. Doing it alone is tough, but together we are a force. Together we can we educate, inspire, motivate and support one another.

We offer emotionally charged original content that we hope will mean something to you. And because we know your time is precious, we are constantly combing through the Internet to bring you the best of what the web has to offer.

This platform is made for you. I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to reading your comments on how we can improve it.

We are truly in this together…as women, as connecters and as the voice for our children and future.

Please Be Hopeful, Be Fearless, Be Giving, Be Vulnerable, Be Silly, Be Inspired.

Just BE.
