“I could only have dreamt of running my own business, but I mean where do you start?! Investing in my own Creation Station franchise means investing into a whole network of support, that’s really important to me. I can gain help, advice, and support anytime. I’m learning a lot. I feel confident and whilst not everything has gone to plan it’s good to have challenges because it motivates me to try even harder to be the very best I can. I smile every day! I love being my own boss, I’ve time to sing in a choir and play saxophone in a band without worrying about getting everything done. Sometimes I even go out on a school night!”
