    Greetings everyone. I am quite a mongrel in a way. I returned to the region three years ago after being in Italy for many years where I ran my own estate agency. Looking for more intellectual stimulation I became a writer and that led to me becoming a funeral celebrant for the British Humanist Association in Yorkshire and Humber. Although from Yorkshire originally I am not from these parts and have few contacts, so any 'reaching out' as they say would be welcome.

    Hello everyone.

    I'm a copywriter working in York and serving clients nationwide. I've been freelancing for around 3 years now, but only just set myself up as an agency.

    I specialise in improving sales copy and I have a team to take on a whole variety of writing projects.

    Looking forward to reaching out to other businesses in Yorkshire.

    PS.If you contact me and mention you're from UKBF I'll give you a free copy revision. You only need pay if our copy beats what you are currently using. If it doesn't, you don't pay us a penny. (We've beaten 97% of copy put against us.)

    Hello everyone,

    There seems to be a great vibe and a wealth of knowledge on this forum so I'm glad to have signed up.

    I'm 24 and from a small town called Scarborough. Since I left school I've worked running various businesses for one person or another and finally got around to working properly for myself as a freelance website designer. I'll be honest, I'm one of the few people who prefer the business and sales side of it to actually designing the sites! I've got some more projects lined up but I'm hoping this will give me the time and funds to follow through with them.

    Hi everyone, I'm Jonny, owner of Sweet Pizzas based in Leeds.

    My dessert business Sweet Pizzas was established in 2014 and we make chocolate brownie pizzas topped with all kinds of confectionary. What started off as a crazy idea slowly became a business and I now have a thriving Facebook page and I'm very active on Twitter. I sell via my website, Facebook and at Farmers markets and small/medium local festivals. Last Christmas I won an award from Theo Paphitis and I have been on local TV and quite recently BBC radio Leeds.

    I am looking to network with local people and businesses as I look to get my dessert in more delis/cafes and restaurants in Leeds.

    Looking forward to speaking to you all.
    Jonny

    Hi everyone, I'm Stuart and I'm a commercial drone operator. I live in and work from Doncaster. I'm married with two daughters.

    My work sees me operating UAV's commercially to create aerial photography and video and also to carry out aerial inspections. It combines two passions I have, photography and radio controlled flight so it's something I really do enjoy. I also get to spend lots of time outdoors, which is a bonus! I love the challenges this job presents and creating media that's interesting but also has commercial value.

    Until recently I also ran a community interest company, working as the MD, but we're currently in the process of winding that up. We ran community events and activities here in the village I live in, just outside Doncaster town centre. Our largest event was a bonfire night one with almost 3000 attendees every year. I worked on a voluntary basis in this role and it became unsustainable for me, due to the lack of willing volunteers to help. Activities wise, we done a lot of stuff in our local park, for families to enjoy together. It's a shame we're having to wind the CIC up but it's not sustainable.

    I joined this forum hoping to meet other business owners, to discuss business issues and hopefully to pick a tip or two up. If I can offer any tips along the way then that's a bonus.

    Cheers,

    Stuart
