Hi everyone, I am Bomme from Kinderroom in Leamington spa. I wanted to take time out this week to share my experience of the Networking Mummies Warwickshire meet up yesterday. Since joining, I have unleashed the power within as a direct result of the support and confidence that all the business mums in the group give to each other.
I spent yesterday morning at the Networking Mummies meet up at the Star and Garter in Leamington Spa and I can honestly say, what a great morning and what a great way to meet like-minded people and to talk business in a stress free environment. A lot of mums come along with their children, so it makes it accessible to all.
The format is informal, relaxing and if like me, you have not had a lot of chance yet to network or you are not particularly good at networking, this style will suit you. Over coffee, tea, toast and chat I shared with others what I do and what I have to offer. I also met business mums who I can hook up with in collaboration with the aim of delivering mutual business benefit to each other.
There is always an interesting business speaker, yesterday it was Sandra Peachy who inspired us with tales of her writing, how she managed to write a book within 29 days and become a published author. She also described how writing the book got her noticed as she is also a professional business mentor. Her mantra was all about having a go, recycling information and standing out from the crowd. Her free tips on blogging gave me the push to continue with my own blog http://www.networkedblogs.com/blog/kinderroom-blog.
The thing is everyone there understands the time and money pressures, so all the advice, hints and tips that I got from yesterday’s meeting are real, not expensive and can be used straight away.
So if you are reading this and have been struggling along on your own, or have been thinking of joining and coming along, do so. You will be amazed what ideas come to the front when like-minded people get together and how much confidence you can gain when you hear yourself talk about your business out loud.
