Scottish Soulpreneurs

Free informal meetups in Lanarkshire for small businesses with soul and purpose.

Hello, fellow Soulpreneur!

Thanks for landing on our Scottish small-business safe space! We provide regular free meet-up opportunities for you to blether with like-minded local people who are also navigating the Running Your Own Business Labyrinth.

Because, let’s be honest, sailing your own work ship can feel like a maze of dead ends and wrong turns. It’s overwhelming. There are Goblin Kings everywhere trying to lure you off-course.

Advice travels in from all directions…

“You need to post on social media every day to be successful.”

“Here’s how to make six figures in six weeks!”

“I’ll show you how to handle customer objections and grab that sale!”

Sataboot? Yer heid feels like mince trying to deal wae it all.

But, maybe you don’t want to force people to buy from you. Maybe, you want to have a successful business without pushing customers’ pain points.

If you are

and you feel in the minority,

believe us when we say you’re not! That’s why we’ve created these informal networking gatherings in Lanarkshire. They’re your opportunity to swap stories, best-practice tips and worries with people who think like you. You might be surprised to find that there are loads of soul-led and heart-centred businesses out there. 

At our meetings, you’ll mix with people who’re still giein it laldy to make their businesses succeed. But with integrity and without signing up to hustle culture. We all want to make money, obviously. However, if you’re like us, then it’s not necessarily your main driver when making decisions. We’re good folks being guided by our hearts more than our purses.

In a nutshell, we want to be happy and have flourishing businesses while making a positive difference in people’s lives. Do you want to, too? 

Aye? Pure dead brilliant! We cannae wait to meet you.

Why join us?

If you’re running your own business then your brain wardrobe is likely full to bursting with all the different hats you need to wear. Accountant, Marketing Expert, Customer Service Department, Admin Assistant, Social Media Guru… the list goes on (and on and on).

Trying to figure it all out on your own is, quite frankly, exhausting. You might be tempted to lie down in a poison poppy field like Dorothy just to get a rest. But haud yer horses! We’ve come up with a belter of a solution minus the Wicked Witch!

Why don’t we all meet for a chinwag and help each other out? 

Think of it like networking but without the formality of icebreakers and PowerPoint slides. We’ll visit and support local coffee shops and do some “netwalking” and daunerin in gorgeous Lanarkshire nature spots instead.

We might not have all the answers to give but having some good craic and a barista-made coffee with sympathetic business-owners will make the stormy soulpreneur seas seem brighter. Because we’ve all had the “am I doing the right thing?” days. But in our hearts, we know we are. We set off on our own for a reason, be it to spend more time with our children, have more work/life balance or to not to be restricted by 9-5 living.

We just need an occasional pep talk from friendly peers. Or a sympathetic shoulder and reassurance that, “Yes, I had that problem, too. And no, it doesn’t mean you’re failing.”

So come join a group of people who are gentle sellers. People who yearn to make a difference in the world. People who want to make money and be successful without using aggressive tactics or selling their granny then asking for change.

How do I know if I’ll benefit from joining you?

These Lanarkshire business meet-ups are for you if any of the following apply…

And the bonus

to socialising with people on the same wavelength is that you might just hook up for new business ventures, too!

Our meetings encourage honest, relatable convos that have us all leaving on a high and buzzing to do things in our business. Fur coats and nae knickers are not allowed. This is a safe space to be yourself. 

So, what are you waiting for? Get booked into one of the dates below and get yer bahookie ower here! 🙂

Who are we?

We're Lynsey and Marissa

and we’re both sole traders. We crossed paths via Instagram and quickly realised how good it was to have someone to chew the work-life fat with. 

After months of sharing tidbits like, “What invoicing platform do you use?” “The Instagram algorithm hates me” and “How the chuffing hell do you create an online course?” we realised that there are probably loads of people asking the same questions. And perhaps we can help each other.

And so, Scottish Soulpreneurs was born. 

So if you’re up tae high doe wae working solo then come hang out with us for an hour or two. A problem shared is a problem halved an aw that.

Lynsey

Lynsey runs Nibbled Apple and is a blog writer and social media content creator (and moon and crystal lover) who specialises in helping quirky, magical businesses.

Marissa

Marissa is a (crystal obsessed) web designer and digital marketer and works with small business owners, big dreamers and people who want to make a positive impact in the world.

Meetup Dates
and Locations

Please do not just turn up as we will have booked a table for a certain number and may not be able to accommodate you.

This first meeting will be very much a relaxed ‘getting to know each other’ vibe. There is no fixed schedule. 

For future events we may introduce short slots for people to share some insight into something they’re an expert in. We’ll wait until after we meet in person though so we can understand what you want to get out of our meetups.
