The birth of a networking cupcakenista

I attended my first networking & coffee meeting. I was a bit apprehensive because I always think others have it all figured out and that I’m not as  knowledgeable.

My introductions varied as my confidence level either increased or decreased… I was: ‘I’m Thea, and I bake!’ (suitable for Bakers Anonymous); ‘I do cupcakes.’ (boring) or ‘I’m a cupcake baker!’ (so is every other mum). This rollercoaster continued until I brought out my fondant cake toppers, I was promptly transformed into a cupcakenista! Compliments flowed and I was glad I risked leaving my safe kitchen for the world of networking!

Will I do this again? Definitely!! I feel such a sense of accomplishment because I stepped out and grew.
