I decided to attend one of ReeRee Rockette's Wonderful Working Women's meetings at the weekend and am so glad I did!
You can read ReeRee's review (including piccys!) here :
I made so many new contacts - from designers, to writers, to stylists and more! I've also starting following them all on Twitter!
I'll definately be at the next one and recommend it to any ladies who already have, or are thinking of starting their own business. It's great to have someone to talk to about things, partly so you don't make the same mistakes as others, but also just to know you're not the only one trying to make things work in the current economic climate.
My favourite thing about the meeting was the relaxed atmosphere - it didn't feel like a "business meeting", it was much more of a group of friends who just hadn't met before and the networking aspect was fabulous. I'm sure I'll be working with some of the ladies that were there when I re-open the new shop for various reasons.
