It’s okay to make passing comments on what’s happening around you, whether it’s That new show on TV, politics or the weather, but remember that the group is about the community succeeding as entrepreneurs.
You are expected to be patient and allow new members to find their feet in this group.give new members time, space and peace to observe, watch conversations, to see how to communicate.

Anyone found to not be a member of TLP in a TLP house group chat will be removed - It is your responsibility to update your number via your TLP account to keep us informed.
Some group members may message you directly. There is no obligation to answer. If this direct personal approach does not suit you, please let the individual know, or refer it back to The Lady Powerhouse Team and we will deal with it.
Do not spam the group. Where possible post your message in one single chunk of text, instead of broken down into multiple messages.
These guidelines for use of the WhatsApp groups have been developed and will remain under review – comments and suggestions are welcome. We want everyone using the groups to understand how they operate and what they are for. All users are required to abide by these guidelines in order to take part.
If you have concerns about any message posted on a WhatsApp group email: firstname.lastname@example.org, and a member of TLP staff will try and resolve the matter. If a TLP staff member or group overseer considers a message inappropriate they will contact the person who posted it and seek removal of the message if necessary.
