Franchise: Mother Nature Science Hertfordshire, t/a I Love Science Ltd
Prior to this, I was dealing in Medical Science Technologies for the last decade; from pharmaceuticals to medical imaging industries I saw the ever-changing medical advancement in improving life expectancy.
From a friend.
Mother Nature Science started its incorporation in London since 2007. For the past 10 years the Mother Nature Science team have worked with local schools and parents to inspire children with Science. It has extensive networking circles in schools across London and parent groups. The curriculums are for children from the age of 5 to 12 years-old and deliver After-School Clubs, Holiday Camps, School Workshops and Birthday Parties.
I’ve always had a passion for Science from a young age. Being a science graduate, I see the importance of inspiring the younger generation to have fun in Science. There are many franchise models to be purchased out there, I’ve spent time studying their company profiles and business models. None of them ticked all the boxes but Mother Nature Science does, after rounds of consideration.
I was self-funded with my savings.
I started with 5 days intensive in-house training. I was introduced to the Mother Nature Science Franchise Team which comprises of Luke, Varun, Rose and Aisha.
The training was a very dedicated one-to-one training. The main area was to show me how to run the business from the start. Marketing involves setting up my company, telephone, bank, office and promoting my company on social media (Facebook and Google PPC etc.). Sales oversees the income generating activities, figures and how to handle new enquiries from parents/schools. The support from Operation team ensures all issues including instructors and recruitment synchronise with the sales/marketing activities.
I am lucky to say that I have made the right choice as the support from the Franchise Team is second to none, sometimes just a text or phone call away from resolving my enquiries and problems.
The most valuable part is the experience of the Mother Nature Science team. Which is all unselfishly shared with their franchisees. They have over 10 years of concrete children education and entertainment experience, coupled with real life case scenarios.
Besides the in-house training, I was able to observe every one of their services. I have been to Workshop/Assembly, Holiday Camp, Birthday Party and School Club, worked along with their instructors. The observation and assisting along the lead instructors had definitely enhanced the training as I can see the bigger picture even before I start my own.
My franchise area is Hertfordshire. I am delighted to establish my presence in this new area. My role involves promoting Mother Nature Science beyond London, so that the children in this area can also benefit from our services.
As I mentioned, every area poses different challenges; my biggest challenge is to promote Mother Nature Science in a new area/county. I took it positively, seek advice from the team and we grow together as a team. Every day I’ve learnt something new, amazing!
This franchise is my career and my passion, hopefully I can further expand my franchise business.
I have put my passion into something I really enjoy doing so far, I am grateful for the opportunity.
Running her Mother Nature Science franchise in London allows Samira Kashefi to spend more time with her children.
It has provided me with more flexible working patterns. I spend less on childcare I am able to spend more time with my kids. I have become more confident in communicating with various people and learned many new skills, including exceptional organisation and management skills.Samira Kashefi
