#BloomIn2017, Big Small Business & other upcoming events
Posted on 29 January 2017
Oh it's good to be back here in 2017 with you!
Have you eased back into a routine yet? We have, just about! We've consciously been taking a slightly slower pace; it's not worth being too hard on yourself.
When things are too frantic you can find yourself on a constant rollercoaster screaming to get off, but it doesn't stop! Recently we've had time to get off and explore different scenes and perspectives and as a result we've actually been more productive 🙌🏻.
The mantra we're channelling this year is to: #BloomIn2017 alongside our community.
The #HeroBloomStory 🌱: "In 2014 the first seeds of Hero were sown. Having been a full time mum for six years I decided it was time to do something for myself. I had started a blog to dip my toe into the digital age and it was this blogging journey that opened up a whole new world to me. I met some amazing people, my confidence grew and I learnt who I was again. Around a year later, I decided to take the plunge and pursue my dream of opening a destination shop. Fast forward two years and we've moved premises to a shop over three times the size and have a team of seven. Something I am very proud of.
We are passionate about meeting other dream chasers and creative entrepreneurs and would love to follow your journey. So, we're asking you to share YOUR bloom story - use the tag #BloomIn2017 on Instagram, join the community and we will be there with you every time you take a step closer to reaching your goals. . ."
Talking of inspiration, Hero's very own, Laura (founder) and the wonderful Monica B. Welburn (award winning blogger at The Elgin Avenue) have created something incredibly exciting which we are 'bursting full of pride' about....
**drum roll please!**

Here are a few words from the ladies themselves...
"Big Small Business is a conference FOR entrepreneurs, BY entrepreneurs; a one-day conference, happening on April 1st 2017 in Winchester, Hampshire.
The idea behind Big Small Business is to pull together an incredible roster of entrepreneurial speakers, to impart their knowledge, and share their stories, with a conference full of fellow entrepreneurs, inquisitive creatives and big-dreamers.
We hope that the conference will prove to be both educational, and hugely inspirational to you.
Monica and I both know first-hand what it is like to create and run your own venture. It is an incredibly rewarding process. It can also be isolating, confusing and extremely challenging. It is our intention with Big Small Business, that both at the conference itself, and across every touch point of BSB, to help our fellow entrepreneurs to pursue their own dreams, cheered along by a supportive community.
We want to be your cheerleaders, and for you to be each others’ too."
"The values were clear to us from the beginning – Big Small Business is a conference by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs. For our first conference we wanted it to serve people close to us, in Hampshire. There is a phenomenal wealth of entrepreneurial talent in this area of the country, and we also know that Winchester is a beautiful place to visit for conference attendees from elsewhere. As for the speakers, we cannot wait to reveal who we have on board – you will be blown away!"
HOW CAN YOU SIGN UP FOR BIG SMALL BUSINESS?
"Head on over to the Big Small Business website to register your details. Monica and I will be sending out information updates at the end of the month, including who our wonderful speakers will be, and how you can buy your tickets for the day.
Big Small Business is sure to be an incredible educational, and inspirational day for all its attendees, and it is our intention to foster an ongoing community of supportive Big Small Business-owners, big dreamers and inquisitive creatives, even if you can’t attend our first conference in person.
You can also follow the BSB journey on Instagram here."
What an exciting year it's set to be! You can join us for the ride too!
As well as the upcoming Big Small Business conference, we (Hero) will shortly be releasing a brand new roster of additional Hero Creative & Entrepreneurial events - keep your eyes on here. You will also receive a calendar of event's dates if you're signed up to our mailing list.
