Don’t take our work for it! Take a read of Elle’s member experience:

“Joining Six Degrees has been a breath of fresh air, especially coming from somebody who has worked in a corporate industry for many years prior to running my own business.

“I run my own business as well as being a Mum to three young children and Six Degrees has been such a support for me – to have people there for me, when I need them most is so uplifting. Tapping into the online and in-person events means I get to take time out for myself making me feel I am still “in the mix”, it also means I am still socialising with everyone and growing my business at the same time.

“I have made friends for life; we help each other with our businesses which has been amazing because, as everyone knows when you’re running your own venture, it can be a really lonely world. I love that I have a community to do things with, friends I know I can lean on, take walks with and talk about personal stuff with too. It is such a rounded experience, which I love.

“Six Degrees has opened doors for me in terms of other connections – so whether they’re a member of Six Degrees or a contact through Six Degrees Members, it has felt really effortless to find the people at the “top” that I needed to speak to which has enabled me to help launch a Nationwide project – this has all happened through Six Degrees!”
