Jamie’s Italian, Leeds

On Tuesday I caught up with Sophie from Onetenzeroseven and Daisy from Llama Social at Jamie’s Italian in Leeds.

After the Blognix Retreat we decided to set a date to meet up again soon, because we found the ‘business mastermind’ session on the last day so useful. Essentially, you talk about your goals, and together you suggest ways of achieving them.

Jamie’s very kindly covered the meal for us. We picked from the Super Lunch menu, on which you can order two courses for just £10.95. To start I had the pate bruschetta, for main the tagliatelle and to drink a deliciously crisp prosecco. It was all very delicious!

I always love the decor at Jamie’s Italian restaurants – there’s a lot of attention to detail and everything looks good quality.

I loved this meal and I also loved the bowl it came in

After we’d had lunch we wandered into Leeds and found our way to Pintura, where we stayed for a drink and got our notebooks out for some serious masterminding.

If you own a business, work on a freelance basis or even if you just have a hobby you want to develop, I highly recommend setting up a mastermind group. At the Blognix Retreat I was a bit skeptical at first as to how useful this would actually be, but by the time we’d finished I was questioning why I’d never tried it before.

We made ourselves accountable afterwards by writing our goals down on a shared Google doc too!

A great day that gave me the boost of motivation I needed to crack on with my next set of goals.
