Abby felt like she was constantly juggling her life as a primary school teacher and Mum to two little ones. She wanted to work for herself but didn't want the headache of having to set everything up from scratch.
Abby now runs award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, parties and events for all ages in Chichester and Arundel.
"As a teacher I found it very hard to balance home and work when constrained to the set hours of being a teacher. I was always juggling both of them and really felt that I wasn't giving my best to either!"
"I wanted to continue to work with children and loved being creative. I found The Creation Station and knew that it would tick all the boxes for me. I didn't want to start from scratch and investing in a franchise has meant that I have all the resources I need - along with support and guidance from a fantastic group of people."
"My 'Tiny Treasures' newborn keepsakes sessions are a definite hit! They are always so well received and a huge number of my customers rebook onto future sessions. People are also loving my pre-school classes in Chichester and saying that they are just what they have been looking for - something different to the normal baby groups they go to.
I get to drop my daughter at school every day and now spend a day during the week enjoying special time between just me and my son."
"So excited! I want my business to grow alongside my family's needs and there are so many things I absolutely can't wait to do! I am hoping to get involved in large events in Chichester and Arundel this year and build an awesome team that will help me to take my business forward."
