Sally Murphy KiddleydiveyInterview with parents in business.....

Each month we talk to a business owner or work from home parent in order to gain some knowledge about their job.

We cover the highs and lows of parents juggling family life and maintaining a successful career. We also pick up some hints and tips along the way.

This month we talk to Sally Murphy, Founder of Kiddleydivey

She offers three franchise options, one to work with children, one to work with the elderly and special needs, or a franchise that offers the combination of both.

You may have career experience working with children or with the elderly already, you may have had a music based background – whilst these are desirable qualities, they are not essential for the job.  What is so important is that you are a motivated, enthusiastic, confident person.
