How often do you work?
I really wouldn’t refer to it as ‘work’, more like blazing a glittery, colourful, messy learning trail across Solihull. I currently teach classes 3 mornings a week, prep time is around a half hour each evening beforehand and maybe a couple of hours of admin a week.
How does the job fit around your family life?
As a business owner you choose when you work and how that best fits your family life. Currently I teach classes 3 mornings a week and get most of my admin work completed during the evenings after my son has gone to bed, which is great as I get to spend quality time with my family and still work.
How much time do you commit?
When you own your own business it means more to you than the average ‘job’ so I do commit a lot of thought and time to promoting the business, forging relationships with other local providers, attending events etc. But this is all worked around my family life, I can do these things as and when I want.
Where do you carry out your work?
I currently have 3 very different venues within my franchise area, all of which offer something different to the families that come along to my classes. One of them is a busy Methodist church centre which has a lovely family friendly café on site.
Do you need a car?
Yes, a car is absolutely essential. I manage to fit everything I need into a Ford Fiesta, so you don’t need a huge car.
Do you get support/training?
Yes, the training and support you receive is incredible. Someone is always available to answer your questions at pretty much any time of the day. We also have a private Facebook group for us to share ‘best practice’ and any tips we pick up along the way. We also have a group text set up to ask any questions or to ask for advice from other Franchisee’s.
Would you recommend this opportunity to other mums?
Owning your own business is empowering. The pride you feel when you have your first full class is immense, or when you see a child develop a skill or hit a new milestone because of your class. Grow your business to suit your lifestyle and your family life. For example, as my son grows and eventually goes to school I will increase the classes that I run and the time that I put into the business.
Do you advertise?
Social media is my main way of advertising as my Arty Splats families have built a lovely community on my page and post pictures of their little ones enjoying classes on a weekly basis and share stories with each other when milestones are hit. I also provide leaflets to various local places and trade leaflets with other providers in the area.
Are there any downsides to the role?
I can honestly, hand on heart, say that this was the best decision I have ever made. It doesn’t feel like a job, it’s far too much fun! I would say the only downside is that I don’t currently take my 2-year-old along to Arty Splats classes, but we work around that by having my childminder bring him along to classes or my husband as he works shifts. Plus as he gets older it will be more feasible
