The Cocoon
 

The Cocoon is the inner sanctum of Making Mumpreneurs, a safe place to learn, evolve and grow. Beat the loneliness of solo working & surround yourself with passionate, motivated, entrepreneurial women.

Need help with your business but don’t know where to get it from? Receive practical help from experts who’ve been where you are and learned the lessons so you don’t have to. In The Cocoon our experts are on hand to share their wisdom and experience, and answer your questions as and when they come up.

Feeling completely overwhelmed by the juggle? We understand what this can feel like and can offer a range of different solutions to get you back on track. We believe strongly that self-care is a crucial element of becoming a successful small business owner, and we take a holistic approach to business to help you with both your practical challenges and your inner voice.

Running a business is not an easy option, especially when you already have another full time job of being a mother. We know how hard the juggle is, and lack of time is one of the biggest challenges. We can’t give you more time but we can help you to get more out of your time. With masterclasses on time management and productivity, The Cocoon is an invaluable resource for growing entrepreneurs.

Over the last decade I have worked with hundreds of mums in business and no matter what our product or service is, we all face a lot of the same challenges. Creating a support network around yourself is crucial to your success, and happiness, as a solopreneur.

Believe me, it is possible to wake up every day excited about what the day holds, love running your business, earn money and have the flexibility of being able to pick the kids up from the school gates. It's totally in your power to achieve this. 

Whether you are just starting out or have been running your business for years, learning new skills is an integral part of being an entrepreneur. In The Cocoon we embrace continual learning with our monthly masterclasses and expert speakers. You will feel supported through regular member calls, daily conversations in our private Facebook group and a sense of camaraderie with other mums in business facing similar challenges.

Member of The Cocoon

Felicity Sandford

Amazing Futures is a Marketing Support Services & Consultancy business that I set up in September 2017.

The Cocoon was a vital support to me as I got ready to launch my business. Everyone is so supportive and keen to help, not just the panel members (who are great!) but all the members as well.

There’s a real feeling of ‘sisterhood’ on there, with mutual encouragement and bags of useful advice and support. Through the Cocoon I was guided through the decision of whether to set up Amazing Futures as a limited company or as a Sole Trader.

I also received crucial advice in setting up contracts and financial systems. I love the monthly training calls, have just enjoyed the PR masterclass and feel that it’s a very low cost way to keep up your knowledge and learning. It’s a cosy environment where you feel comfortable posting any sort of questions relating to your business.

Highly recommended!

I’ve been running a photography business, Melanie Moss Photography, for 10 years this June. It’s gone amazingly quickly and changes all the time as I do all sort of portrait and still life work but that also means I don’t have a solid routine of when and how I can fit networking into my week. Some weeks I’m around in the daytime and other weeks I’m in photoshoots most of the time. I love the job but it can be isolating at times and networking is really important to me. Being part of the Cocoon has been brilliant as, not only is it being amongst a wider group of very friendly supportive people but is completely flexible in what it provides. So I can rarely make the scheduled masterclasses or call-ins but that’s not a big deal as I can catch up later when I’m at my desk and look at all the masterclasses in one go if I want to. Erin and her panel put together fantastic resources that capture what every small business needs, whilst also challenging us to take part in activities such as Facebook Live week which I would never have put myself out my comfort zone in any other situation for!

The Cocoon is very much a bespoke support and of huge value to me and my business. I can wholly recommend joining it straight away :)

 

 

 

 
 
  • I was finding it hard to admit that the freelance journey was getting to me and that I couldn’t do absolutely everything myself. I met Erin and knew instantly that I could trust her with my business. My baby! A consultation with Erin covers so much. Advice and wisdoms are carefully selected as she reads where you’re at very quickly. Erin is very knowledgeable about social media, marketing, branding, networking, and self care. I always come away from our sessions feeling motivated, reinvigorated and reassured.

  • The Cocoon has been revolutionary for me in my business. I have learnt so much about ways to manage social media posts through apps, recommendations for websites to design marketing materials, ideas and suggestions for content to put out on various platforms. How to pitch my products. I could go on but space is limited. Additionally Erin is always happy to answer questions or bring someone else in to the mix who is an expert in that area. I can confidently say I continue to learn new things every month from the group and look forward to what is coming up in the future. Thank you Erin and all who support you.
