Seven Mums have turned around difficult work situations and have successfully trained to run their own Creation Station franchise.
Neela Jackson from Manchester was recently made redundant and decided she wanted to take control of her own work pattern. Claudia Watt from Milngavie and Melanie Dawson from Morden decided to change their long work hours and commuting time to gain more family time.
Michelle Hilton from Warrington, decided to find a career that she felt passionate about. Marje Harrison from Ormskirk, Lindsay Rhodes from Nantwich, Roxana Payne from Stourbridge also wanted a more flexible working pattern around their family.
Jackson stated “When I was made redundant, I decided to turn it into an opportunity to do something I really wanted to do, to have more time with my daughter and to ensure that I wasn't a victim of government cuts in the future. I didn’t know a great amount about franchising and I contacted Blue Orchid, a business support centre. They put me in touch with Franchising Works, who encouraged me to research lots of franchises” Jackson smiles widely “I had a huge WOW moment when I came across The Creation Station Franchise, I didn’t realise that this opportunity even existed! I’m passionate about creativity and education and I could see it would work around my family really well. I worked with Franchising Works and The Creation Station, and they helped to secure an interest free loan for my business. I have just completed my training and have classes already booked in. I am so pleased that I turned this situation into the perfect opportunity for me and my family”
