After a summer of fun and kids, it’s back to work for the local Hale and Altrincham ParentPreneurs. The September event took place at the beautiful Tour de Belfort on Broomfield Lane in Hale.
The perfect venue, matched with an amazing guest speaker, Alex McCann from Altrincham HQ set the scene for a truly enlightening and inspiring event.
ParentPreneur Networking is for parents that have made the choice to replace childcare and employment, with enjoying school drop offs, quality time with their family and running their own business. Most that attended had left corporate jobs to become ParentPreneurs and be part of a world that is becoming more popular to family life.
Alex from AltrinchamHQ, an expert in his field, gave valuable advice on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Frantically making notes on the gold gems of information, the ParentPreneurs were thrilled to put into action his tips and advice.
Founder of AltrinchamHQ, McCann went on to say, “ParentPreneur is so different from “normal” networking, the event is friendly, open and as much about your story as it is your business. It is about business, but people are out to help other people, understanding what drives them and how they overcome struggles. Ordinary networking events could learn from this.”
The message was clear from all the businesses that attended, times can be tough, sometimes isolating, but having the freedom of your own business was something they all have in common.
Businesses that attended were from accountant to business coach, from kids play franchisee to hat creator. All businesses and parents with their individual story, all with an overwhelming array of life changing circumstances, that had led them to the path of being a ParentPreneur and putting family and precious time as a priority in their lives.
The Altrincham and Hale ParentPreneur event will be monthly, the next one again at The Tour de Belfort, Broomfield Lane, Hale, on Wednesday 21st October, 9.30 to 11.30.
