WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY...
Since I became a member I’ve had lots of valuable help and advice from group members and I’ve also gained some work from the group.
Dawn has saved me a lot of money that I was wasting in bad advertising and guided me in the right direction.
The support is excellent from everyone in the group and it’s helping me to grow in confidence. Knowing that I can just ask a question and get an answer is a great feeling. Thanks Dawn and everyone in the group.
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.
I have found the doing biz for yourself group invaluable since joining as an Exclusive member, it is always good to know that the group and it’s members are there 24hours a day for advice and a supportive discussion if needed, which is the best thing for a small business like myself, help from others in a similar situation. In addition to this i have generated sales internally and externally which is an added bonus.
“The main ‘value point’ has been the opportunity to meet other business owners who share the same visions and passion for their business. I know for a fact that I would not have had as many ‘opportunities’ had I not been a DBFY member, regardless of the level of your membership. Business is about building relationships ‘people buy people’. The network meetings are a great opportunity to network, ask questions to other business owners and get feedback on your ideas. Running your own business can be very lonely, so being part of the network gives you that security you have others around you.
I have gained clients through the network, been given invaluable advice, work in collaboration with both people in the group and others I have met through the extra networking opportunities such as the sponsoring of the Oldham Business Awards. You only get what you put in, if networking isn’t your thing make it your thing! You will be sorry you didn’t join sooner!
