I am delighted to be celebrating my 6th successful year running my own Creation Station franchise. My business keeps getting better and better. Here are just some of my highlights for 2016 so far…
*I have helped to inspire over 1,600 children in Bournemouth, just within the last 6 months alone. Bookings have reached an all-time record with regular contracts and waiting lists for my classes and we’re only half way through the year.
* My business has grown to an exciting new level. I have a successful team of great staff who run many of the classes and parties. Due to demand I am able to take advantage of the head office business developments and I am launching into after-school clubs and adult classes.
*I am making full use of the 5 star customer rating we have on Trustpilot as a national company. I am also making use of the extensive social media content that is created and provided by our Creative Hub head office, for me to share.
* I have strong brand presence in the area and this is supported by the fact we can gain contracts to run the Kidszones at the local family festivals. I’ve been working closely with a Bournemouth based event company which is leading to further contracts and partnerships within my community.
* By promoting our national monthly prize draw that ‘Creative Hub’ Head Office run every month, I’ve boosted my growing database to cross sell my services.
* My income has doubled in the last year alone and I can see my business continuing to thrive as we connect and help with so many children, parents, grandparents, local businesses, family focused and educational organizations.
The Creation Station brand has just gone from strength to strength and is all about inspiring imaginations and nurturing potential. It’s wonderful to be part of such a positive and dynamic team.
I love being able to chose what I do and to be in control of my working hours. I also have the time I want to have with my girls, I choose the hours I work and our head office team support me to achieve what I want out of running my own business.
It’s definitely a different path to my years in banking and I feel very fortunate and proud of the work I do now. It was the right decision to take time out to reflect on what I really wanted back in 2010. Making the decision to have more fulfillment and control over my working life means that as well as now running my own rewarding and profitable business, I have been there for my girls.
I’ve grown in so many ways in the last six years. I’ve made so many new friends and had so much fun running my business. I’m really looking forward to seeing what exciting things 2017 holds for me, my family and my business.
