    Topic - The Accidental Entrepreneur: Lessons from the Canvas

    As an accidental entrepreneur, it is fair to say Cody made more mistakes than most because she never set out to run a business nor did she have any business or beauty background. Cody spent more time on the canvas than on her feet as she says she made every mistake in the book, but those failures taught her more than any victory ever could.

    Codilia Gapare, an entrepreneurial breast cancer survivor, has revolutionised the beauty industry by creating the first ever false lashes range for chemotherapy patients. The mother-of-two had always dreamed of becoming a lawyer and started studying when she came to the UK from Zimbabwe. Hours before her interview for University, Codilia was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 36, and it was through this intensely difficult time in her life that she realised that there were no fake eyelash options for cancer patients. Codilia transformed her idea into an actual product, 'C Lashes', and partnered with beauty brand Eylure. The company have since released the range in Boots stores, making the cosmetic industry more accessible for women with cancer. C-Lash was voted one of the 50 Prima High Street Heroes 2019 and is currently one of the best-selling new entry products in Boots.

What members and guests say

"3 years! Its seems like only yesterday that I was fighting my way through the Cheshire lanes to the launch of a brand new networking group. These days, new networking groups seem to spring up like weeds, but this one WAS different. It ticked all my boxes and I decided to join at that launch meeting. And I'm still there after three years, because it did deliver on those initial expectations, and continues to do so!! Why do I continue to like The Business Network? Three Simple Reasons: 1 - Its a pleasurable experience. Great lunches in nice locations each month. A structured meeting format, but not rigid. Great educational seminars. Meeting decision makers not salesmen as fellow members. Importantly , you feel you are among friends, all willing to help you. 2 - It helps my business. As a digital marketing consultancy, the majority of our clients come through referrals. I have been introduced to a number of new clients by fellow members and met great companies to partner with through the network. 3 - You don't know when you will meet your next client! As host, Karen works hard to attract new people to every meeting. As well as growing the membership, these visitors help to keep the meeetings fresh and dynamic. And hopefully some may need our Internet Marketing services! Happy 3rd Anniversary!"
