meetings ‘can help develop the business


understanding and skills


that can make the step into being a really profitable business. You can also meet other people who can help you – freelance book-keepers, marketing people and retailers who can find some space in their shops to display your work.’


My own journey into networking has only just begun but I have met some truly inspiring business women, formed links with an interior designer with fabric to spare and managed to secure a deal to make merchandise for the network. Needless to say, I am very glad that I plucked up the courage to get out of the car at my first meeting – it took me 15 minutes – and I hope you will give business networking a try too!
