Honestly, with 5 years to think about reaching my goal to become an IBCLC, this bit has
taken me by surprise!
I studied for hours on end on the many permutations of human lactation, but I didn’t consciously think about the world of business that I was joining!
A world of marketing, adverting and business ideas. This didn’t feature too heavily at all on my mind!
I know I am not alone in this, there are an ever growing number of women in business who are finding this all out by themselves.
But we don’t have to do this alone.
An IBCLC friend and I have teamed up to start a new Facebook group, for IBCLC’s to figure this stuff out together. Maybe one of us who understands Instagram, doesn’t get twitter, or someone has a local referral network set up but doesn’t get how to use Canva.
because supporting those in need whilst also navigating the world of business, doesn’t have to be a lonely place!
