TAWN Thursday Group for Female Sole Traders
Thu 20 April 2017, 12:00 – 14:00 BST
The Tavistock Area Women's Network had its first meeting in February 2015. We have built up a solid group of female business owners and the original cohort are tightly bonded as a result of the journey we have taken.
In 2016, I started a second group. So far we have spent some time getting to know each other and have been through a goal setting process to steer our agenda for the rest of the year. We are open for a small number of additional members to this group.
Ideally, we should have 6-8 committed members who come every month. Being a sole trader can be quite lonely, so having a monthly "team meeting" in a secure and supportive group is great for giving us the chance to step out of the business for a couple of hours and work on our development, share knowledge and ideas. We share what is on our minds and help each other navigate ways to approach any issues we're struggling with - be it a tricky client or time management, and we celebrate each other's successes.
There is a Christmas lunch and we hope to have a summer social gathering too to connect with the other group.
Membership is £10 per month, only your first meeting is free.
We look forward to meeting you.
