Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.

Helen Keller

Since starting Brown Paper Festival I’ve found how important communities are for small business owners. Many have found comfort in meeting people who understand the behind the scenes of running a business, some have made new friends and others have learnt lots from new contacts. It’s so important to surround yourself with these people and a online community is a great, less intense way of doing it.

There will be regular discussion topics in the group to help you all get to know each other, to help you work through any issues in your business and to help promote your lovely products! It’s also there for you to post in, maybe you have a problem you need help solving, or you’ve found something that you think could help out others. It’s a safe space in which we have a zero tolerance rule for rudeness.

There will also be some extra content such as helpful hints and tips around business eg. craft markets, social media, photography etc. As well as optional zoom calls to chat to actual people !!
