A not-for-profit support community of small business owners in Surrey

Supporting Change in Your Business

Your Local Business Community

Created as a not-for-profit community of small business owners in Surrey to provide the advice and guidance to each other that has been learnt through experience.

SHARED EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE

ACCESS TO ONGOING SUPPORT

In between monthly meetings the members can engage with each other in a private Social Media group to give and receive ongoing help.

WHY 'LONELY OWNER'?

BECAUSE - you need a friend in business!

Because: When it isn’t being exciting, challenging & rewarding, running your own business can be a little bit lonely!

Because: Whilst you are at the top of the game in your product or service, there are almost certainly holes in your knowledge in other facets of your business. Holes which will become increasingly apparent as your business grows.

Because: The internet holds lots of information without context, whilst most ‘solution providers’ offer an answer that is too big for small business.

Because: we are passionate about small & micro business!
