WELCOME TO BAM GREATER PASADENA CHAPTER
We are a support, networking and an educational group for women. If you are wondering what the heck is BAM, it’s just our affectionate acronym for Business Among Moms – BAM! It’s fitting because the women we attract are full of awesomeness.
We host events that support and showcase mom entrepreneurs and help them build their network. We’d love to meet you and learn about your business.
WHERE AND WHEN ARE EVENTS?
WHAT TO EXPECT
You will find a welcoming group of women (most are moms, a few are not) that are here to get educated, share resources, encouragement and network. We encourage building relationships first, because people do business (and refer business) to those they know, like and trust. We don’t just sell to each other; we celebrate each other.
Our events are 1 ½ hours in length. The first 30 minutes are for open networking – grab a cup of coffee and a snack and come upstairs and meet and mingle.
Small group discussion is followed by either a business speaker or our business showcases.
We know you’ll come away with a few great new connections!
While any woman in business is welcome to attend our events, members receive money-saving and business building benefits:
- Free/Discounted Event Attendance
- Private Facebook Group Membership to keep the networking going online
- Listing in our Business Directory
- Opportunity to showcase your business at a BAM event
- Feature of your business on our website (annual, lifetime membership)
Greater Pasadena Chapter Leader: Cindi Knight
Cindi is the owner of Girl Friday, a personal assistant service for families and small businesses. Girl Friday offers modern day solutions to old fashioned dilemmas by providing personalized assistance with everything from babysitting to organizing services, to handyman and house cleaning services, and much more. Cindi started Girl Friday in 2012 with some flyers, a handful email addresses and crossed fingers. Growing the business has been a true grassroots effort that today has resulted in hundreds of clients and over 80 Girl Friday freelance service providers. It has also afforded her the opportunity to spend more time with her kids, and being her own boss is pretty great too.
Cindi has a degree in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After moving to Los Angeles in 1992, she spent many years in the entertainment industry before starting her own Creative Services business in 2003. After 10 successful years, she walked away from that business, launched Girl Friday and never looked back. It is her great passion to connect people with services that enhance and improve the quality of their day to day lives.
Cindi lives in South Pasadena with her husband and two teenagers who simply adore her and want to hang out with her all the time.
