I joined MyNetwork for Women when it was first starting out. I had recently quit my teaching job of 20 years to become a full-time complementary therapist. It was all exciting apart from one thing – I was quite lonely working from home and I missed having supportive colleagues who you could chat to.
When I joined MNFW, I found it to be incredibly friendly and everyone else there was just like me! We were all starting out being self-employed and many of us felt exactly the same…we needed some support and a friendly ear to bounce ideas off.
The group was open to anyone and it was safe and supportive. We could share our successes and get encouragement from other members if we were having a bad week.
We learnt a lot from the guest speakers, but we had fun at the same time.
I look forward to the monthly meetings and really enjoy the opportunities to learn new things from members who join each month.
