Its Time To Talk Business For Donegal Mammy.
Donegal Mammy have you ever thought about setting up your own business in Donegal?
Are you already set up in business and need help and support from other women in business in County Donegal?
Do you have a skill or a talent that you believe you can turn into a profit and make money?
If you are employed outside the home, are you stuck in a rut in the work that you do and want to explore your options of being an “mumpreneur” or becoming self employed?
Does all this frighten you, or do you think these crazy ideas are for someone else? Not for you?
As you scribble your business ideas at the kitchen table or on your digital notebook do you wonder what you need, what it takes to take the plunge and set up in business in Donegal?
Well this blog and this invite to all Donegal Mammy is to tell you…..
YOU CAN DO IT!
Over on The Donegal Women in Business Network facebook Page we asked for some help and advice on telling you all about this and here are some of the messages from the members to encourage you.
Evelyn Mc Glynn from Evelyn Mc Marketing advises
You know more than you think you know… don’t underestimate your idea and if someone tells you it won’t work… that may be true but if you don’t take the first step it will never happen.
Write down your ideas, don’t be afraid of it having to have a #businessplan or anything more serious than your thoughts and ideas on paper. Just do it!
Even if you are not there yet in terms of your idea , plan ahead and do your research and meet other women in business.
Karen Murphy, from Karen Murphy School of Speech Dram and Communications gives this advice;
Just thinking back to 2002 when I returned from Dublin, I used to pop along to all The Donegal Women in Business Events, I didn’t have a business until 2006, but during those 4 years I was plotting and planning and learning from those that were established
