Towards the end of last year, I set up a group called The Standout Set.
It’s inspired by the amazing women in my hometown in Yorkshire who are creating their own businesses and launching their own projects / ‘side hustles’.
My personal experience of ‘going it alone’ as a business owner is that it is BRILLIANT and completely WORTH IT, but that it can get massively lonely at times…and it is those times when it can be easy to let self-doubt creep in.
Self-doubt is a pain in the backside and can lead to a reluctance and fear of pushing yourself and putting yourself out there.
The idea behind The Standout Set is to counteract this – by cheering each other on and providing a sounding board for ideas and generally just reminding each other how fantastic we are. Because no-one’s going to blow our own trumpets if we don’t blow our own, right? (Read more about TSS here.)
TSS is an online community, which will meet in real life too. Come join the group here (you don’t have to live locally to join the online group!)
Our First Meet-Up!
The first ‘IRL’ meet-up will take place next Wednesday evening (February 13th) in Hull, East Yorkshire.
It’s an informal get-together, a chance to chat about work-related challenges and wins, and generally just have a catch-up with some like-minded folk.
If you’re keen to come along, we’d love to have you. Please contact us via the Facebook group and we’ll hopefully see you next week.
Bye for now x
