Running your own business is a dream many people have, but often people don't know where to start. The benefits of investing in and running a franchise means you are able to run a nationally recognised branded business, with full access to training and on-going support. The Creation Station welcomed seven new inspiring business owners to the Franchise Family Tree. From Falkirk to Stretton and Kinross to Norwich we're able to launch seven new Creation Stations into your local area and inspire children and adults near you. Meet the new Creation Station owners here...
Pictured from top left to right below we have:
- Jo Burns from Kinross & South Perthshire.
- Kate Knubley from Wimborneminster
- Eleanor Mason from Norwich & Broadlands
- Lisa Dickson from Falkirk
- Rachael O'Reilly from Stretton.
- Olivia Arnold from Rotherham
- Melanie Dekker from Skipton
Kate, based in Wimborne, is mum to Ewan, James, and Ruth and her secret talent is juggling, not just a busy schedule either, actual juggling! She's excited about taking on a new challenge to prove to herself and others just how much she can handle, with previous experience in teaching art she's ready for a new creative journey.
Keep up with Kate and her new venture here.
Next up, meet Melanie. Based in sunny Skipton Melanie is also leaving teaching to start a new adventure. After running her own photography business and working in the education sector for a few years Melanie decided she wanted to have the freedom to take control of her own life and felt The Creation Station allowed her to do that.
Melanie is mum to William, who we're sure is going to be drafted in to help with prep for all of her upcoming classes, parties, and events.
Rachael is mum to Charlie, Harry & Lily and is our wonderful new Chief-Inspirer in Stretton & Burton-on-Trent. Rachael comes from a background of teaching, dancing and hanging out with celebs! Fun fact about Rachael - she tap danced on the hit TV show Surprise, Surprise with Cilla Black. After researching for tirelessly for years Rachael decided to go with her gut feeling. Always a fan of glitter Rachael took one look at our website and knew it was an opportunity not to pass-up. Rachael said she felt a draw to The Creation Station because of the strong ethos behind the company and the passion to inspire and nurture creativity.
We look forward to seeing what inspiring activities our new Creation Station franchise owners get up to. If you'd like to keep up with what they are up to - or to find out if any of them are your local inspirer, check out their pages here:
