business networking

Why do you do what you do? What do you want your business or career to deliver: a new house, a flash car, or maybe a secure retirement?

At this month’s Ware To Do Business networking meeting, Steve Saunders challenged those in the room to set their goals for the next 1, 3, 5 and 10 years. It certainly got us thinking…

The key is to dream BIG and to make your goal exciting, so that you’ll have the motivation to get up each morning and take the next step to your target.

Ware To Do Business is a friendly, business networking group which meets on the second Wednesday of each month. Our next event is on May 12 from 9am to 10am.

Thank you to all those who got into the Christmas spirit for the final Ware To Do Business meeting of the year.

Although 2020 has been a horrible year, at least we can now look forward to a brighter 2021. Let’s hope we will be meeting in person sooner rather than later.

Our December meetings always feature a quiz, and well done to teams 1 (Lynn, Vanessa, Helen F, John K and John M) and 2 (Karen, Kerstin, Paul and Steve) who were joint winners with 10 points.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday January 13. If you wish to attend, it’s FREE, please email enquiries@waretodobusiness.co.uk

Our November meeting coincided with Remembrance Day, so we asked attendees to remember a friend or loved one who served in the armed forces.

We also welcomed plenty of new faces (and familiar) faces, who all had the chance to chat and network over breakfast at The Feathers Inn, a charming village pub just outside Ware, Hertfordshire.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday December 9. If you wish to attend, please email enquiries@waretodobusiness.co.uk
