Erin’s set up quite a unique networking and support opportunity for businesses. I joined The Cocoon in March with the expectation of being part of a networking group that is supportive as well as ideas-generating and it’s been brilliant. My photography business doesn’t follow traditional hours and every week is different, as with lots of small businesses, so being a member of a networking group that is flexible is key. I simply cannot attend networking meeting which are a fixed days each week or month, so this enables me to join in, and learn lots from others - informally as well as formally through the brilliant masterclasses.
The group is really friendly and offering of the right amount of advice when needed and the challenges that Erin has posed to us so far have been fantastic. I love having someone help focus me on things like marketing and goal-setting as these are jobs that slip down the priority list all too quickly when you work for yourself. I can thoroughly recommend joining The Cocoon, it’s a fantastic opportunity not to be missed.
