Creating a Community for Business Women in Leicester
So, many of you probably know that March is International Women's Month but who else thinks it's crazy that in a year, only one month get’s dedicated to celebrating women? I personally think we should be celebrated daily, having to look after a home, kids and a husband is no joke, especially when you are an entrepreneur who owns your own business! Ok, so there are no children in my personal equation yet but I know there are many women out there who can relate to all the above, right?
Finding your tribe
Working for yourself and playing every role you can think of is extremely lonely and having launched my own business 8 months ago, I desperately yearned for a ‘Girl Tribe’. A bunch of like minded women who shared my business dilemmas, who I could bounce ideas off, brainstorm with or meet for a coffee in the day when I was stifled with overwhelm (Hands up if you can relate). When I enthusiastically sat down and started my search for a group that could offer me this kind of support, I was disappointed that it didn’t actually exist! Where normal people would accept this and continue working in solitary confinement, I decided we needed to do something about it and so Leicester Fempreneur Community was born...
Leicester Fempreneur Community Group & Networking Events
Leicester Fempreneur Community (LFC) is a Free Facebook group aimed at women in Leicester (and surrounding areas) who own their own business. The online community is a place where you can get to know other women, build a support network, share ideas and get business related recommendations...but that’s not all, come 20th March the group will also be moving offline when the first ever Leicester Fempreneur Community Networking event will be launched. Each month the exclusive event will take place at a different business around Leicester meaning no two months will be the same! The March event will be at The Pantry on Loseby Lane, a vegan cafe owned by local fempreneur and LFC group member Arti Chudasama.
If you are a local Female Entrepreneur who owns her own business and would like to join the Free Facebook Group, please visit the link here. To join the group on Instagram, follow the link here.
