Membership Rules & Regulations

Facebook Private Group:

RUSHwahine Group is a private community for budding to established women entrepreneurs.

Guidelines for the Facebook Group: I’m not a stickler, nor am I akin to rules so let’s keep this simple. RUSHwahine community is a place to exchange ideas and to support each other’s businesses. Candid discussions and diversity of opinion is always welcomed — arguments and rants are not. This is a business-focused, moderated discussion and we reserve the right to remove any post for any reason.

The purpose of the Facebook group is to engage in conversation. That’s where you can ask questions, get feedback and connect with other wahine. It is NOT the place to ask for others to share your content — that’s what the Hot Spot is for. Not everyone participates in this part of RUSHwahine, so please do not post share requests in the Facebook group. They will be removed.

Your share requests should be formatted to make it easy for others to pass along your content. Do not post a link to your most recent blog post or your sales page without providing shareable content that can be copied/pasted.

Limit share requests to one item per week. This does not mean one request email with 5 different share requests within the email! It means ONE item (blog post, sales page, new podcast announcement, etc). Any request with more than one item will be removed.

If you’re going to ask others to share your content, then reciprocate! You don’t have to share anything that’s not a fit for your audience, but know that sharing is a two-way street.

If you have questions, ideas or suggestions, let us know! We’re always on the lookout for ways to improve the community.

Personally Identifiable Information. No unique identifiers, financial information or other personally-identifiable information is shared with third parties, except to the extent that (i) such information must be disclosed to process orders and/or bill users for purchases (for example, we must submit your credit card information to a payment processing company to charge you for purchases of goods or services, and may need to provide your mailing address to a fulfillment/mailing partner to have goods you purchase sent to you); or (ii) such information is necessary to provide you with services you have paid for.

Information Security

RW may implement certain security measures in its endeavors to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information under its control.
