Women UK had the pleasure to spend time with Michelle Bartlett, owner and founder of Live Laugh Love Ladies Club.
Michelle’s story of how Live Laugh Love was born is inspirational and heart warming as her main focus for Live Laugh Love Ladies Club is to inspire ladies and for them to feel uplifted and educated with the speakers, atmosphere and the spirit of the clubs. By her own admission, 2014 was a challenge for Michelle with one of her daughter’s going to University, and another moving out to make her home with her boyfriend. Michelle suffered the classic ’empty nest syndrome’ Add into the mix, a family tragedy and an end to her existing business, Michelle felt the loss and although remaining strong, wanted something more and some direction.
‘After 8 years of being a weight plan Consultant, and understanding people need to talk, I knew my new role was to remain a support with people. 24 years of being self employed, was not going to take me into the 9 to 5 office worker easily, so as a previous events organiser, social butterfly and mother, I knew it had to be a combo of the above to move forward’ says Michelle.
Live Laugh Love Ladies Club was born. Asking herself where do ladies go for a night out? Where do ladies of all generations mix? Where can ladies go safely to belong, but without paying large membership fees? Michelle wanted to bridge the gap between business corporate speakers and ordinary women both in and out of the work force. Live Laugh Ladies Club has certainly captured many women as the Clubs are now being franchised out throughout the Country. What makes this networking club different to others we at Women UK have gone to is the social aspect with lots of women attending alone or with friends, there is an atmosphere of friendship and value.
With the clubs meetings at both lunch times and evenings across different dates, each club has a low entry cost, great food, inspirational speaker and a warm and friendly welcome. Michelle is adamant about maintaining these values across the franchise regions as the clubs grow to a National and indeed International level over the coming years.
Women UK highly recommend you go along to a club and see for yourself, a warm welcome is guaranteed! To book your place nearest you or find out more about owning a franchise, please click here
