Mum's view

Name: Sally Mann

Location: Billiercay

Family: I have a wonderful husband and two boys, Dexter (4) and Xander (2)

How often do you work?
I work 13 classes across four days and employ someone to work 6 more classes across two days

How does the job fit around your family life?
I am so lucky to be able to decide when and where I open my classes. This flexibility means I can still drop my children at school and preschool before going to work. I am also lucky enough to be able to collect them at the end of the day. They wouldn’t even realise I had a job as I am always there which is precisely what I was looking for. The nature of the job also means I can deal with furthe

How much time do you commit?
I commit a lot of time to the business. It is very early days for my franchise and it is important for me to nurture it and grow it with my time and my energy. I work every evening managing current customers, interacting with potential customers and marketing the business. I also spend a lot of time during the day canvassing and trying to gain further custom.

Where do you carry out your work?
I work in Essex in Billericay, Wickford, Basildon and Stanford-le-Hope. As the business grows, I hope to expand my area.

Do you need a car?
I wouldn’t be able to carry out my job without a car. There are extensive resources not to mention the travel between towns and venues.

Do you get support/training?
I have had extensive training. This was exceptional not just in terms of understanding what was to be taught but also how it should be delivered. The most important training to me has been the business support. I have completed training on how to manage and promote the business. This training is ongoing with emphasis on motivational support which I love. You never fee

Would you recommend this opportunity to other mums?
I love this job. I work very hard and it is not easy but it is worth every single second of it. I laugh every day. I wake up excited about what the day may hold (because working with pre-schoolers, there are just no guarantees). I get to spend quality time with my family without the worry of work or deadlines. I get to make decisions that work best for me, for my life and for my boys.

Do you advertise?
I advertise in local shops, nurseries and preschools, village halls. I am an ardent user of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to advertise my business. I have the business advertised on my car. I canvass people and houses

Are there any downsides to the role?
There are very few downsides to this job. It was overwhelming to begin with however, any new business/job would be. I find I spend a lot of time on social media and talking to potential customers. However, I think this is inevitable and expected with the business in its infancy.
