-Sweet Little Stories-

I just love connecting with other people who love cake (and cookies!) and really understand

what it's like to work in a small baking business

-The Sugarcraft Contessa-

I love nothing more than helping people feel more confident and empowered to create the business they REALLY want!

Meet your hosts

Ridleys.jpeg

Since becoming a part of The Sugar Lounge in November, it has really helped keep me accountable with the day-to -day running of my business and my long-term goals, making sure I'm hitting the milestones that I want to achieve. 


 

It has been one of the best steps I have taken since becoming self-employed so far and in turn has given me a real sense of pride in my work and the

confidence that I can succeed in what I want to achieve. 

Jamie - Ridley's Bakery

The community is friendly and warm, and Bell's down-to-earth style of teaching makes everyone feel welcome. 

 

Since I joined, I have created my website, designed my own flyers, and learnt to price my cakes smartly...

 

It has given me confidence and changed my mindset completely – in a good way! I now truly believe that I can achieve my business goals and that I am on the way to creating a profitable baking business.

We can't wait to see you inside and start this journey
together!

 

When do the sessions take place…? Every 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Tuesday of the month - 8PM GMT - LIVE in Zoom.

What do I need to take part? All you’ll need is a free Zoom account, a laptop, a bit of peace and quiet and a decent internet connection.

Where will I find my Zoom link? You’ll receive a link in your welcome email that you can use every week. No messing about with passwords, just the same link/ ID for every session

What do I need to bring? All you really need is yourself, a pen and paper and plenty of enthusiasm! On weeks where we are doing practical workshops, everything you need will be uploaded to our private group G-Drive folder: Easy and free to access and completely optional to join in.

Do I have to speak in front of the group? Nope! If you’re the type who prefers to sit back a little and take it all in, you can relax and soak up the wealth of advice, hints and tips without asking questions directly to the group.

Do I need to have my camera on? Again, it’s completely up to you but we certainly won’t judge if you’re up to your armpits in icing sugar (or ironing!) We’ll just be happy you made it.

Do I have to attend every session? It’s up to you how many sessions you attend but for the best results, come on in as often as you can for that weekly boost of inspiration and motivation for your biz!

What if I miss a session? All sessions are recorded, uploaded to that same group folder the following day and available for a month for you to catch up anytime

How do I cancel? Life happens so if the sessions are no longer right for you, simply cancel at any time via the link in your welcome email and your subscription will expire at the end of that month. No problem.

Looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you and your sugary business
