“I’m The Money Saving Mum and always on the lookout for value for money and do we get that with The INsiders!!! 

I’ve been part of this fantastic community, which is what it is, for over a year and the help and support that is readily available is invaluable. 

We get the chance to ask other business owners advice which is non-judgemental whenever we need to. We throw ideas around to help each other grow and whenever I personally feel like I need a kick up the bum with my mindset, I know where to turn. 

The INsiders isn’t just “another online group”, it’s a community of like minded people, wanting to grow themselves and help others. I can honestly say I have also made some fantastic friendships as well. 

So if you want value for money for just £20 a month, get yourself signed up. You won’t regret it.”

I’m doing Mandie’s FAST plan, and whilst my progress might be slow, boy does it help to think things through.
For £20 a month being in The Insiders and on the group calls, really has given me growth.
It’s has also helped with my mental and physical health. 😉I am more focused on what it is I do and can offer to my people. Asking questions in The mastermind group and posting a tips, I’ve had great feedback that has got me writing more content too. It does two things that we possibly all need:
A- gets sh*t out my head and on to paper.
B- allows me to refine my pitch and tagline on my website.”

The community headed by Mandie Holgate is something I didn’t realise I needed until, on a whim, I joined in December 2022. It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made for my business and for ensuring continued and sustainable development, growth and success for my business, Writing For Life. Our online community is like a family and the breadth of support is wide and rich with so many business owners and entrepreneurs sharing their knowledge and experience freely and generously. But more than this, it is a place where we can nurture ourselves too, our emotional and mental wellbeing, voice our hopes and dreams, share our fails and our fears. It is a safe space to try new strategies, to explore new ways of working together and to find solutions to make our work and lives better

“I wanted to reach out to you and thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️ for all the support you offer my small business.

I’m on the Insiders because it keeps me connected to the world beyond my solo practice. For me, it’s not just about receiving but sharing and cheering others on too. I get motivated by other people’s success as much as developing and reaching my own goals. Mandie is like Tigger when it comes to business (an infinite ball of energy). She will help you bounce ideas around until you find what fits you. There aren’t many places you can get that for £20 per month

“I was searching for an altenative networking group to replace one I had been a member of for some time and having attended a couple of BWN / INsiders networking events, I was impressed by how vibrant the meetings were; I always come away feeling uplifted having met like-minded business owners in a friendly and genuine atmosphere, not to mention having the opportunity to listen to some fantastic guest speakers. One cannot underestimate the power of networking; not only might you gain business and recognition for what you do, but you also get the opportunity to meet other business women who are in a similar position to you. At The BWN, unlike other groups I have attended, there is no hidden agenda. You are encouraged to be yourself and are accepted for who you are and given the chance to share your own business journey, with all its ups and downs.”

“What has The BWN ever done for me???
Well, apart from the encouragement to stand up in front many strangers (soon to be friends) and chat about my business, at a moments notice.. ooo scary but boy did I feel brilliant afterwards! Then there is the behind the scenes help, like the way they will instinctively know who would be a great synergy for your business, and introduces you to each other.
And what about promoting my business even when I am not in the same room as them.
To running fantastic workshops, ones you want to attend, and the coordinators follow up to make sure you continue to get the full benefit, even after the day. Do I promote The BWN to all the business women I network with, you bet I do. What do I like best about BWN? Come and go as I please, no pressure, can turn up when there is space in my working day. Choose when I go, which workshop will benefit me…make sure I get along to the ones that really do catch my imagination.”
