"I have a degree in Engineering and a Masters in Environment and Development and have had a successful career working overseas, (mainly in Africa), in the charity and development sector and returned to settle back in the UK recently to be near my family.
I am not sure that I was really looking for a business opportunity but felt that I was not quite ready to retire, I was looking for a change of career - something preferably part time where I would be my own boss and do something I would enjoy. Something 'completely different'!
When I returned from overseas, I decided to take a year or so out and do something for me, something creative! I looked around at arts and craft courses and chose to do a Colour Wheel course in Windsor."
"I loved the ColourWheel Art Course - it was simply the best thing I had done for years! Fellow students said the same thing and after two terms on the course I started thinking that perhaps I could take on a ColourWheel franchise. When I finally contacted and met with Sarah and I realised the level of support I would get I was convinced that this was the right thing for me to do. I could not sell something I do not believe in, but with Colour Wheel I genuinely KNOW how good the product is!
I did not look at other franchises - I chose ColourWheel because I knew from my own experience how good the courses are. I did consult a friend who has considerable experience in franchises and he helped me examine what Colour Wheel was offering. He agreed that it was an ideal opportunity for me, given what I wanted from it."
"It has all been pretty straightforward so far and I am getting excellent support on all aspects of the set up and running my business - so far so good!"
"I am starting with three classes per week and I hope to increase that to at least four classes. I am also interested in working to develop some new products - one day art 'boot camps' in the summer, paint away picnics, or perhaps weekend retreats...."
