Country Business Mums’ Lunch a success

NAR Design Country Business Mums Lunch 17th FebruaryNAR Design’s Country Business Mums’ Lunch on the 17th of February in Clare was a huge success.  Originally we aimed for 20 women but had almost 40 attend so it was a fantastic turnout.

This event was aimed at mums who are in business, wanting to get into business or even working mums.  The event provided a way of networking, promoting business, forming new friendships and sharing stories and experiences to help each other achieve and know we are not alone in our struggle to raise a family and a business at the same time.  It was also a lot of fun!
