Tell us about your journey to becoming Self-Employed
I started my business whilst still training at college. I have always been an independent person so it just seemed a natural fit for me to become self-employed.
I started just one day a week (my day off from college) in a room I rented above a sunbed shop. When I finished my training I took the plunge and went full time, and the business grew from there.
By the age of 21, I had my own premises and had taken on my first employee. I continued to grow the business and gain several more employees for 14 years. Until I made the decision to downsize it to gain a better work/life balance.
This is the best decision I have made! I now have a home-based salon that my clients love and have gained the better balance I myself was looking for.
Refusing to let Lockdown2020 get the better of me, I decided to focus on upskilling and undergo training I had promised myself I would do but never previously had the time. This led to me starting my journey with Pocket PA!
I am now a qualified Industry Educator and have added new treatments to my skill set. I am still (all these years later) extremely passionate about my industry and Love my job!!
