networking, still key for small businesses

6 ways to keep networking in a COVID safe way. #1 Facebook: Most networking groups will have a private Facebook Group, these are great for helping you keep building relationships and connections outside of the group meetings.

small business spotlight

What inspired you to start your business? A love for Social Media, Art, Fashion and Photography inspired me to embrace a new career direction. In December 2019, I completed the ‘Foundation in Social Media Management’ course with Digital Mums. I’m privileged to be featured as a case study for future courses. I then completed remote learning with ’Tech Pixies’ and ’the Hub for Social Media Managers’ enhancing my skills. I specialise in Instagram and Facebook. March 2020, I launched DONNA HERTS SOCIAL.

Tell us about your niche? My niches are: Fashion/jewellery, Beauty,…

The 5am Club by Robin Sharma has the strapline ‘Own Your Morning, Elevate Your Life”, and this really might be the book that finally reaches the parts that other books can’t. The story in a nutshell The 5am Club is very different from other management books. It follows the story of two people, an entrepreneur, and an artist, both feeling out of control of their lives, and generally unhappy. They attend a conference and hear life advice from a guru, The Spellbinder. Whilst there they also meet a…
