SOHO HOUSE X MOTHERS MEETING
Joining forces with private members club Soho House - we are delighted to launch a 6 month series of talks (what kind of talks? - would be great to be more specific in the first sentence.)
When women gather we can go further and faster together. Mothers Meeting serves as a community that brings mothers with the desire to keep their identity alive at the same time as 'raising the future’ we do this through friendship, support circles, professional mentoring, networking, events, workshops and bonding over shared experience.
MOTHERS MEETING SOFA SESSION turns the usual mum and baby coffee morning on its head and creates that special time with your baby to learn, spread ideas and get inspired! Perfect for those seeking a deeper understanding of the new found world of 'parenthood', Mothers Meeting Sofa Sessions welcomes mothers from every discipline and culture, providing an opportunity to discover new paths and ideas all with a little person in tow. Mothers Meetings is for those mothers who wish to see motherhood not as the end of their lives but just the beginning.
We want our community of ‘women who happen to be mothers’ to engage with ideas and each other, both online and in person at our Sofa Sessions. We will discuss culture, business, life, art, design and the most complicated issue 'surviving every day as a mother’ - the ups, and downs.
If you think you would like to talk/advertise etc at one of our events drop us a line - email@example.com
THANK GOD NOT ANOTHER PANEL TALK!!!!
THIS EVENT WAS ALLLLL ABOUT YOU AND FOR YOU!!
Absolute buzzing AFTER our MM on Monday at the super sexy @thecurtainldn - not all mum meet ups are in Church Halls!! Because all us mums deserve to get glam now and again even if it is at 11am and not 9pm! We had the amazing @tibaandmarl @bexfast_@noella23 giving their top networking tips! And @junie_poonie our MEGA MINGLE MC! Over 100 tickets were snapped up and it was BLOODY BRILLIANT!!!!! Babies were welcome!
Just have a pic at the pics to get a feel of the vibe!!! It was just fab!!
Bored of listening to other people telling you what to do? Or how awesome they are? We bloody are!! lol!!!
What’s the first question most people ask you when you meet?
It’s likely, “What do you do?”
This has become the new “How’s it going?” or “How about that weather?” and it’s awful.
If you’re anything like me, this question leaves you feeling sized-up and minimized. It’s as if the asker is thinking to herself, “I’m out of here if she doesn’t fit my predetermined criteria of what is interesting.”
So, you struggle to answer, not even sure if the asker cares in the first place, or if it’s just small talk.
Why does it have to be like this? And why do we care so much about what someone does, anyway? Hopefully, we respect ourselves enough to know that we are dynamic people who can’t be described adequately in one sentence.
Want to share your thoughts, feelings, questions?? Not just WHAT YOU DO or WHO YOU ARE!!!!! Cause that whole conversation is kinda dry especially if that is all that matters to the person asking!!
WE Want YOU to meet new inspiring women, in the same boat as you or women that can help you feel less alone and more inspired???
Than this event is for you!! Think mega mum get together - cause you can bring the bubba!!! But loads of really cool 'networking' games to help everyone get conversations flowing and overcome shyness and awkwardness!!! But we just hate the word ' NETWORKING' It is basically a room full of kick ass women (yep we are talking about you!!!) getting to chat to new like-minded women!! Exchanging ideas, swapping skills and generally have a moan that that they have not had their moustache threaded in 4 months!! That kind of thing!!
So if you HAVE been looking for a excuse to get out of the house with the bubba or maybe without - just an excuse to get some lippy on THEN YOU HAVE TO COME TO THIS!!!!! And we promise you will not regret it!!!

Staying Strong in Business
Recently I listened to Alyson Hogg (owner of Vita Liberata) talk about how she has succeeded in business and one of her biggest lessons was surrounding lack of complacency. That ultimately, staying strong, being tenacious and flexible in challenging times was vital to a business success.
Staying strong in challenging times has been a large part of my business journey at LITTLE HOTDOG WATSON https://www.littlehotdogwatson.com/ sometimes the challenges have been bigger than others, and some days I have felt a little overwhelmed but each major challenge has taught me something in business and has improved how I do things.
Here are three of the biggest challenges I have faced so far and how I stayed strong and fought / flexed through them. You may recognise some of them yourself now or in the future.
Strength comes in all forms but knowing that solutions to the problems we face can actually make better businesses I’ve found super helpful to taking the stress out of the situation.
