WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY...

I call group members my biz buddies but in reality it feels like they are more than that. 2020 would have been a lot more difficult without my DBFY family.

Amanda Wild – The Rochdale Bathbomb Company Ltd

I had the pleasure of meeting Dawn Torrington several years ago at my very first attendance of her network meeting. She had team leader presence with an extremely friendly attitude approach. We stayed connected from that day. I have witness Dawn go from strength to strength and grow a professional brand that is beneficial for her diverse business members. I decided to join Doing Biz For Yourself in 2016 as my business was in stalemate mode due to my lack of confidence to step out of my comfort zone.
Dawn gave me encouragement and valuable advice and I have been warmly welcomed into group. Dawn has not only given but developed a group environment that is 100% business to business support of one another.

Well I for one have gained so many contacts in this group who I now class as friends.I have collaborated with 4 members recently, Dawn Torrington, Rachel Walker,  Chris Stansfield and Loretta Douglas who have all got behind ‘my School initiative’ and have become sponsors of my business.
Running your own business can make you feel isolated as you’re in charge of your own ship so to speak, so for me, connecting with like minded business people about problems and successes is really valuable.

Excellent – lots of support and advice a genuine community – people are prepared to show an interest in your business, and you reciprocate. Customers become friends and you recommend people in the group to those you meet elsewhere. Networking is work and you get out what you put in. I would recommend people take the opportunities offered. I feel like a leader in the group in that I attempt to replicate my own experience for members and guests. I try and offer friendship and support and if people need my services that is an additional benefit.
