Have you ever thought about running your own business, but wondered what it is really like and whether you would earn enough money? Have a listen to Debs talk about her concerns as to whether she would gain the flexibility she wanted and at the same time earn enough money. Within Debs first year, just working two days a week Debs has already begun to make a healthy profit. Here's Debs story:
Debs started looking to run her own business to give herself more flexibility around her own family commitments.
"The Creation Station was attractive to me because I really enjoyed working with children as a teacher, but I wanted a career that gave me more control and flexibility to be able to spend more time with my two children. I love The Creation Station's values, about inspiring imagination and nurturing creativity. I requested an info pack and the range of income streams really stood out, and they have won so many awards they really are the market leader in the creative experience sector. I could choose which part of the business I wanted to do, with a huge amount of support and hand holding. I really like that because I've never run a business before and it could feel quite daunting. I'm also part of our franchise family, which is an amazing network of women and men who share the same values and are good fun and really supportive too.
Just working two days a week within my first year, I've already begun to earn a profit. For most businesses, it takes at least eighteen months to make a profit so I'm really pleased with how it's going. And do I have the flexibility I wanted? Yes, definitely! I can choose the hours I work and fit it around my children and family needs. Plus my work is also really good fun, and hugely rewarding so I do feel I have the best of both worlds, a fulfilling career and my own business plus time for my loved ones".
