  • never miss a play or event at school
  • you can give yourself a pay rise

Mum's view

Name: Rebecca Thomas

Location: Solihull, West Midlands

Family: Mum of 3 children under 10 years

How often do you work?
Obviously, the more time you put into promoting your business/events the more you gain in profit. Running my own business with young children I work my own flexible hours which is during sleep times, school runs and evenings on marketing the events, prep, and admin, along with delivering marketing material to promote the events into the community 2-3 days leading up to the market day.

How does the job fit around your family life?
It’s so flexible (we have 3 kids) and fun to do. It's a great way to meet local mums. It's such a good earner that it meant I didn’t have to return to work when our 2nd was born 3yrs ago. I work my own hours and take family holidays when I want. You gain so much guidance and ongoing support from the head office, as well as experience franchisee's willing to assist.

How much time do you commit?
16-20 hours per week. The more time you put into your business the more you gain from it.

Where do you carry out your work?
I do all my work from home apart from the market day where I run the event at a local venue.

Do you need a car?
Yes, you do as you will need a car to check out suitable venues to run the events in, run the market on the day along with delivering marketing material to promote the event to childcare facilities in the town you run your events.

Do you get support/training?
Baby and Children's Market head office gives us so much support and guidance for all of our events and their advice is welcomed with open arms. You never feel alone with the network of other franchisees to share their experience and knowledge and their support is amazing. This is an excellent value franchise that is making me money, getting me out meeting people and has been a massive boost to my self-confidence.

Would you recommend this opportunity to other mums?
Yes, absolutely. I wanted a business that was not costly or hard to set up, that was enjoyable, flexible and had the scope to grow. I didn't have the confidence to set up my own business from scratch. As a stay at home mum, I have more time available and it's given me what I need. I guess it's always down to the individual person and looking at what they enjoy and what they want to achieve.

Do you advertise?
When running a business you need to ensure you promote your business well otherwise customers don't know you exist. I use a variety forms of advertising options such as social media, delivering marketing material that promotes the event along with other recommended advertising options that help grow my business.

Are there any downsides to the role?
It's hard work at the start when establishing yourself in a new area but the rewards and job satisfaction are worth all the effort I put in. You need to ensure you put the necessary time and effort into your business to ensure it grows otherwise you gain little to nothing from it.
