The Mother Hub Coffee Club: Turning a Passion into a Business

After hosting our second Mother Hub Coffee Club last week, it's official - we couldn't love it more!

The theme for April's Coffee Club was turning a passion into a business, so we were super happy to be joined by two special guests: family photographer Kika Mitchell and award-winning stationery designer Jenna Collier (aka Wonderland Invites). Both Kika and Jenna shared their career stories; from the world of television (they both previously worked for ITV) to running their own creative businesses.

We talked about the challenges of running a small business, including  'Imposter Syndrome' and overwhelm. We took away so many little nuggets of wisdom, but our favourite pieces of advice from Kika and Jenna...? 

 
Know your value.
Know when to say “no”.
 

Yaaass ladies! We all need to heed that advice sometimes, don't we? Whether we're running our own businesses or not!

As well as sharing her words of wisdom with the group, Kika also managed to take some stunning photographs of the event, which we just had to share below.

It was such a lovely morning with good vibes all round. Huge thanks to Kika, Jenna and everyone who came along. The best thing about these events is the opportunity to chat with you all! Thanks also to CKN in Brentwood for hosting us. We can't wait for the next one! Watch this space and pencil Friday 18th May in your diary....
