The topic for this week's #CumbriaHour on Twitter was: 'how can this government help small businesses?'
Here is a selection of the best tweets from this week. A heated debate about how government can help Cumbrian small businesses lead to many suggesting that less red tape and hoops to jump through would help.
Next week sees #CumbriaHour focus on 'hints and tips to stay motivated and focused in your business/job'.
#CumbriaHour is an online networking event which takes place every Monday from 7-8pm on Twitter.
