Cambridge Buisness LoungeI spent yesterday at Cambridge Business Lounge, at their CBL Live event, which takes place quarterly.  Its a kind of mini-entrepreneurial Festival….whereas if you’re a music fan you might head for Glastonbury, this is the equivalent for small business owners and entrepreneurs.  A chance to socialise, listen to great speakers, eat some great food, drink tea/coffee and Posh Pop [of course] and generally hang out and meet other like minded business owners.  Like a huge-huge-extra-long networking event.

Ann HawkinsAnn Hawkins did a session which was lively and I loved the fact that she quoted plenty of Dr Seuss:

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

……..and I guess that’s what owning your own business is about – you can steer your own path and steer your own direction.  We need to all remember that….great lesson from Dr Seuss.  I’m going to get it stuck up in the Breckland Orchard office.

Ed GoodmanCBL Live was great – lead by the energetic and wonderful Ed Goodman, who runs Cambridge Business Lounge with his partner Nicky.  He really does have time for everyone and is a huge supporter for small business in Cambridge.  The next event is taking place on 14th May, back at Cambridge Business Lounge – can’t wait!
