I recently completed the ACORNS programme, and it was a fantastic experience. The programme is designed to support early-stage female entrepreneurs in rural Ireland, and I couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity to be a part of it.
Over the past six months, I have had the privilege of meeting so many inspiring women entrepreneurs. With the guidance of my mentor, I was able to develop my business knowledge, and I grew as a person during this time. It was amazing to be part of a community that shared the same passion and drive to succeed, and I felt encouraged and supported throughout the entire process.
My mentor, Anne Reilly, was an invaluable resource throughout the programme. With her guidance, I was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses, and she helped me to develop a solid business plan that aligned with my goals. She was always available to answer my questions, offer advice, and provide feedback. I'm grateful for her support and the role she played in my success.
I want to thank Paula Fitzsimons and the entire ACORNS team for creating a programme that is truly transformative for women entrepreneurs. The impact that this programme is having on rural Ireland is incredible, and I'm honored to have been a part of it. The support and encouragement that I received from everyone involved have been instrumental in my journey, and I'm excited to see where it will take me.
For anyone who is considering applying for the ACORNS programme, I highly recommend it. It's an amazing opportunity to connect with like-minded women entrepreneurs, receive expert guidance, and develop the skills and knowledge you need to take your business to the next level.
