Make It Your Business and Mumsnet launch chat forum for aspiring female entrepreneurs



Make It Your Business (MIYB), founded in 2017 by entrepreneur Alison Cork to support and encourage women to work for themselves,  announces its partnership with Mumsnet, the UK’s biggest website for parents.
The partnership will provide an online chat forum for women thinking of starting their own business.  From Jan 31st 2018, Mumsnet users can post questions and exchange ideas on any aspect of entrepreneurship or how to get started in running your own business, with the added benefit of feedback from the team at Make It Your Business and Alison Cork, who will be on hand to share their experience and advice.
Mumsnet founder & CEO Justine Roberts says: “Starting a business from scratch is challenging, but the statistics show that women face particular barriers; just one-fifth of small businesses in the UK are majority-owned by women. From having the self-confidence to go it alone, to sharing worries about balancing family life with long working days, women can benefit from the experience and support of others who have been there and done that – which, happily, is Mumsnet’s speciality. So we’re delighted to be working with Make It Your Business, and hope it will help women from all backgrounds to go for it.”
Founder of MIYB, entrepreneur Alison Cork adds: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Mumsnet, and doing our bit to address the lack of support and information currently deterring many women from starting their own business. We look forward to working with Mumsnet’s vibrant and engaged community”.
Make It Your Business is not for profit and free to join (
Members receive a monthly newsletter, get access to one on one advice from established female entrepreneurs, the chance to join local networking groups and a free ticket for one of the many MIYB seminars happening around the UK.

TFK launches new exclusive fragrance ‘Unknown Pleasures’ inspired by 70s rock bank – Joy Division


Art is a science. 
Never take anything for granted. We should remain curious and open to discover what surrounds us by experimenting and creating the right condition for something to work.
Music is one of the most scientific art forms, from the elaboration of instruments to the composition of songs. 
One must understand the various elements: acoustics, frequency, rhythm and harmony… 
… the power of forming vibration that propagates sound waves, a translation of human emotion into information, recordable data that can be passed on from generation to generation.
The inspiration behind the TFK music theme is Joy Division, the British rock band of the 70’s who used an iconic pulsar computer generated graphic for their album cover “Unknown Pleasure”.
Sheik Majed enjoyed the band when he was a teenager discovering London. In occasion of the launch, 3 fragrances have been created: Joy Connection, Heart and Flows, and Unknown Ecstasy.
The detail of the complex sound waves are present in the graphics. To complement the concept, a special song has been composed which will be shared exclusively with people who own the fragrance. ey can enjoy the experience of matching smell and music in the intimacy of their own homes or outside through headphones with the wild vibrations of urban life. 
Composer Djamel Ben Yelles
Recording artist, composer, producer, and sought after violinist who actively collaborates with world class musicians, Djamel Benyelles, decided at the end of the world tour of “Arabesque” with Jane Birkin, to devote himself first to production and then to all facets of sound production, from recording to mastering. Along the way in Calcutta, France and Vienna, he met Charley, Mehreen and Patrick, and decided to renew the experience of his first Djam and Fam album (1997), but this time to produce the new Djam and Fam alone.
The song Joy Connection is accessible for download on
