This website and name might be new but Samantha started growing her ‘GoTo Community’ way back in 2007 when she became a new mum in a new area.
The Milton Keynes Facebook group started with 20 local mums and now has over 20,000 local members across 4 areas. With over 850 businesses in the network too!
As the network is growing everyday the idea is to move our digital community over to this website… and also grow similar networks in all the surrounding areas in this one social space. Why?
‘One website, One name and One UK community in One Place’
Over the last 4 years the business has grown massively so it was time for a rebrand. After setting up a blog and then starting a business directory, networking events, a local magazine, a discounts app and then a shop. The main part of the businesses needed to become known as one name.
Rather than ‘ask Sam’ as many of my clients say ‘I was told to goto Samantha Poole for advice/support’ I decided to opt for Ask GoTo as we all like to goto someone who has been recommended by someone we trust! And now is the time to grow my goto team and create more business opportunities for like minded and ambitious entrepreneurs across the UK!
Finding flexible work as a single parent was impossible for me, so this is why I set up my business and now want to help others become financially independent too.
