It has been said that being an entrepreneur and running your own business can be a lonely venture. Not only, especially in the early years of any company, are you often working alone but sometimes the people close to you don’t know how to talk about your work, your achievements, or your challenges.
Friends and family members who are not entrepreneurs themselves sometimes can’t relate to that aspect of your life and it can feel very isolating.
Professional and personal isolation is a risk when building your empire. Having a network of like-minded business owners and investors can help you build connections and professional relationships with people who can share, empathise, and advise on your experiences.
During lockdown, online communities of people with the same interests, hobbies, ambitions, or life experience became very important. When cut off from real-life connection, we were able to turn to our social media platforms and build relationships with people all over the country or even, around the world. Clubhouse is for example, a platform that took off for learning, networking, and forging industry connections.
Prosper² believes in fostering communities between businesses across the UK. It’s one of our core aims, to connect business owners to one another and cultivate potential partnerships, collaborations, and platforms. Our Prosper² Together Facebook page is our community hub, where members can start conversations, ask questions, and share information. Interacting with fellow business experts from a wide variety of industries can open you up to new perspectives and approaches that you may not have considered before.
The opportunities for new leads and new avenues are endless when part of a business club built up of entrepreneurs. Start a conversation and see where it takes you!
