Project Eve

For those of us tired of the Good Ol’ Boy Network and wanting to build a better sisterhood of business and personal activities, this is a good network to join. I like how Melissa Pierce put it: if you can’t join them at the table, build a bigger table. So, the table building continues with Project Eve.

“Project Eve is a social media platform that encourages female entrepreneurs and business owners to communicate, collaborate and share actionable solutions minus the sharp elbows.”

At one point I did not think this was a necessary thing. We’re a nation of people who have overcome such petty issues, right? #Wrong. I have been a witness to behavior very becoming of this exact “professional” environment and it was lead by men. Never did I think that once I saw the t.v. show, Mad Men, that individuals walking among us in this Matrix of life, actually think they are remaking these episodes themselves.

Once I realized this I missed doing business with ladies and wanted to belong to a Good Ol’ Girls Network, but certainly did not have the time to create one myself. So, when I saw Project Eve on Twitter, I signed up immediately.

In this social network I have already connected with many like minded women. I like the Quora-like feel to one part of the site where you can post questions and others can respond. It is affectionately entitled Help An Eve Out. Here, women can give their opinion and expertise in helping others.

There is also a section for groups, events, news/resources, and, of course, an area to peruse the members. There is also a chat feature much akin to Facebook, but you don’t have to befriend people first; however, befriending people can be done.

The site encourages conversation – something all of us women enjoy and love. For the men who do know how to play well with others, you’re invited too.

This is a good place to be as Project Eve is just gaining its wings and is new to the social networking scene. If you have a product with demographics for women this is a good place to start. The owners are bootstrapping the site, so this would be an opportune time to get in with your products to offer freebies and perks for members.

Additionally, if you are a woman who is looking to nurture and be nurtured in your beginning steps of entrepreneurship this is the place. Here you won’t have to worry about harsh judgement and you will be cocooned in to a circle of women who care. I’ve already met several Mary Kay agents, business consultants, and fitness trainers.

If you’re a female it is your girly duty to spread the word now about this social networking site right after you’ve signed up for your account.

See ya there!

You know that moment when you see something and you say to yourself: “I should have thought of that!” This is that moment. I present to you Social Safe.

Social Safe is a digital diary of what you have posted in your social networks. It serves to save your information (according to the package that you choose) and have it available to you in the earth shattering event that your social media channels are corrupted or no longer available. *Gasp!

For those who just cannot believe that this would ever happen, believe it. Remember, we are not paying for the majority of these social networks, at least not directly, so it is possible for things to happen.

Some of the features include being able to save your status update, profile, comments, and Likes. As well as your own album photos, wall photos, and tagged photos and don’t forget Check Ins. There are a lot more because it is not just centered around Facebook, but many other social networks including the latest craze of Instagram. The packages start currently at $2.99 per year, which is not a bad price to save all of our updates – from drunk tweets to bad pictures. But seriously, for those of us “in the business” it would be important to make sure that our clients’ information is safe and sound.

Since some of us are visual creatures, I found this video of a guy sharing his finds on the website and you know its not complete without the sexy sophistication of an English accent.

Are you getting an account? Do you already have one? Share your thoughts on why you decided to join the Social Safe family.
