We love all our new members at BforB but when a new start-up business joins us, and is happy to reveal how BforB has helped them develop their business then we really do feel like a proud parent, and want to shout it from the rooftops.
Angela is a member at The Liverpool Pilot Group, and after just a couple of months of being a member she’s actively taking part in helping to develop the group. We asked Angela for her story.
If you want to share your story with us get in touch with us … firstname.lastname@example.org If you want to be our guest at any one of the BforB groups held across the UK then get in touch. It will be a business decision you’ll NEVER regret”.
MEL FISHER – Director BforB
“I recently set up my own business as a Virtual PA and Recruitment Service located close to Liverpool city centre. The aim is to provide first class support to small business owners, entrepreneurs and directors locally, nationally, and even across the globe! That being said starting a business yourself is no easy feat …and any help I receive along the way will always be welcomed with open arms.
I had heard about Business for Breakfast (BforB) networking events from one of my Business advisors, and decided to go along as a guest to see what it was all about. After all I had nothing to lose …and I did need to start somewhere. I attended one of the local meetings which are held fortnightly and it was there I met other business owners, all looking to increase their network of contacts, and to market their businesses in a professional environment
I didn’t really know what to expect at first as I’d been to various networking groups before. Some of these just weren’t for me – set in very pressured environments on a weekly basis.
Fast forward a couple of months…I am now a full member of BForB Liverpool.
It has been an excellent referral network for me in a very welcoming and friendly environment. I have gained many great contacts, which in turn has generated fantastic business opportunities for me to take my business to the next level in the coming months.
I have personally assisted in developing the Liverpool group and its great to see it finally taking shape. We have gained business from each other in just one or two meetings. We meet every 2 weeks which really isn’t too pressured and allows me to still concentrate on my business.
By becoming a member my commitment is rewarded, I have complete exclusivity within my area of business when I attend my fortnightly sessions. This has proved vital when trying to promote your business within the early days.
BforB will continue to grow promising all members can over time create the perfect synergy with each other ensuring the long-term goals of our individual businesses are met as we all continue to support each other within the business world.
With a fantastic referral network at my fingertips and coupled with the support platform Bfor B offers I am now confident that I will make a success of my business in just the first 6 months.
As a result of BforB – I am now one of the PA’s for the Managing Director Mel Fisher. I am now keen to develop 10 other Liverpool networks and cast our net wider within the Liverpool City region. We can continue to provide only the very best referrals for our new and existing members across the region moving forward.
With this ultimate aim on the horizon, we will continue to be recognized as key players within this industry ensuring we always maintain the edge alongside fellow competitors in 2017 and beyond”.
