About the Dames

We're an international membership-based community of women who own or lead rapidly growing six and seven-figure organizations.

Our firm belief: None of us should be doing it alone.

We live and work all over the country and come together to learn and grow our businesses. Untapped potential doesn’t stand a chance in our presence. We meet virtually most of the time in order to accommodate our fast and fabulous lives. And if you’re in the Colorado, Madison, WI or Orange County, CA area, we’d love see you at one of our bi-monthly comedy nights (they’re pure magic).

Demystifying The Million-Dollar Mark

Less than two percent of women-owned businesses in the United States ever hit $1M in revenue—a startling fact that prompted Dames Founder, Meghann Conter, to take serious action.

She knew that traditional networking and community building wouldn’t be enough to solve this problem, and her experiences swapping battle stories with other female business leaders told her it was time for something new.

Meghann imagined a place where that million dollar mark became radically within reach for more six-figure, impact, and mission-driven femmepreneurs.

A community where women who have already reached that level could share their wisdom and be inspired to help other women get there too. A network of like-minded collaborators who laugh often, hug when they feel like it, and reach new heights together.

That’s how The Dames was born.

(We know you’re busy, but when you have a second you should really read our manifesto. It’s the bee’s knees, the cat’s pajamas...and it’ll put a fire in your belly.)



The Dames Difference

Mentorship and fearless collaboration define us. Fun, love, and flexibility is how we get things done. All five are our core values, and we’re bringing a new paradigm of business to the marketplace. This means building our connections virtually, and acting with empathy, intuition, and generosity to create possibilities that the old ways of building revenue never could.
