A little bit of Mumpreneur networking

I've been busy networking for All By Mama recently. I went to a brilliant group called 'The Mumpreneur Networking Club' last week and met some fantastic people. I love meeting lots of amazing entrepreneurs and talking about the highs and lows of owning your own business and sharing experiences and advice. St Margarets MNC I really enjoy meeting other 'mumpreneurs' as juggling running a business around having a family is really at the heart of All By Mama. Networking is such a skill and I think I underestimated the preparation and time you need to dedicate to thinking about what you want to get from your networking. It was great to meet experienced networkers and others who were new to going to networking events like me. I could see the seasoned professionals and learnt a lot from their approach to the meeting. I met lots of different mums and came away feeling very inspired. It was lovely to hear that many of the mums had set up their businesses when they had children as Pippin was my inspiration for All By Mama. We also met the major of Twickenham who talked to us about how she was always learning from everyone she met - which I found fantastic. One of the things I am enjoying the most since starting All By Mama is that every day brings something new for me to learn. It's very daunting to know that I will no doubt make lots of mistakes but meeting lots of successful mums who have been through it was very reassuring. One of the ladies I met was a photographer called Gail who took some pictures on the day. Gail is a portrait photographer based in London. Here is the pic of me from the day (I am so un-photogenic and I hate having my picture taken so I am not sure how she managed to snap it!) Gemma In Gail's words, "When I am asked what I do for a living I say that I photograph people. People fascinate me and putting that fascination into print is what makes this job so enjoyable". Gail takes beautiful pictures. Take a look at this gorgeous newborn photo! Will Gail also takes lots of portrait / head shots perfect if you need something for your business. Ellen If you would like to book a session with Gail mention All By Mama for a 10% discount. http://www.gailfogarty.co.uk I'm looking forward to my next chance to network and this time I will go with a well prepared minute long pitch and lots of questions!
