A sparky, supportive and super friendly networking group for people running small businesses.

Running your own business can be a lonely affair at times and being in a group like The Village gives you 'colleagues' to bounce your ideas off in a safe environment with others who totally 'get it'. 

Our aim is to give you the tools to grow a thriving business sustainably while still prioritising your own health and wellbeing.

What do we offer?! (lots!) 

Firstly ...

We meet monthly over zoom on the first Thursday evening of the month at 7.30pm for two hours. We have an expert speaker at every meet followed by free networking and discussion. We have mapped out our themes and speakers for the next 12 months and the year is carefully planned to help you and your business grow and flourish through 2022. Each meeting ends with 'The Switch Off' which is a 5 minute relaxation session to give you a little down time and head space. (so important).

Take a look at what we have planned:

 

There is also the opportunity to meet weekly in our facebook group with our 'Tuesday Tune in Sessions' at 9.15 am. These sessions range from 'The Business Surgery' with Jen where you can get business advice from our resident business coach to mindfulness and wellbeing sessions.  

What else?

Lots! Loads of opportunity for collaborations with other businesses, quarterly brunches where we get to meet in person and eat (What's not to love?!), a 'business book group' (think get into your pj's, grab your favourite drink and settle in to chat through inspirational books) and best of all Re-TREAT in the summer where we take a 'day off' together and go to an awesome location and essentially have brilliant fun. (full details to be announced soon). We also have brand photography sessions planned where you can build up your portfolio for social media posts and your website at a discounted rate. 

Our calendar for next year (more dates to be added)

             Hello! I'm Linda                                          

I have been running my own successful business since 2013 and think building up networks and friendships with other businesses is absolutely invaluable to growing your own.

business…

Testimonial

I would recommend this course to anyone! Linda was absolutely fantastic! She was extremely accommodating, very helpful and reassuring throughout the whole process. We felt comfortable asking lots of questions and Linda really made us feel confident about our labour and birth. The cakes were also great!
