Connect with the people around you: your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. Spend time developing these relationships.

We like to think that Northallerton Business Network provides an excellent opportunity for our members to connect with each other. Reducing the feeling of isolation and loneliness that is sometimes associated with self-employment or working for a small or micro organisation.

'It's great having no-one to answer to but not so good having no-one to talk to'

Kindness and Connecting.

The more kindness we give, the more we will receive. It’s a genuine and symbiotic two way street that reinforces the aspect of connection. We are deeply connected to everyone and the more we are kind to them, the better we will feel in so many ways.

That sense of connection is so important as it transcends the separation we often experience as humans. Connection to others is one of the fundamentals of wellbeing and happiness.
