The Keepsake Co would like to introduce you to one of their members, Kim, who joined them in March 2015 and is already building her dream business 'Itsy Imprints'.
I found The Keepsake Co in a money magazine on franchising, I think it was called ‘money matters’. I had been thinking about starting a business from home but didn’t have the confidence or know-how to start on my own so I had been thinking about franchises.
I chose ‘The Keepsake Co’ primarily because I really liked the products. I hadn’t seen anything like the jewellery before and it really interested me. Another big factor that attracted me was the fact that you get all the benefits of a franchise but you have complete autonomy with your business. You are not tied into anything financially and are able to make your own decisions and go at your own pace. Lastly having watched a video by Victoria I really felt I would be comfortable working with her, I felt that she was talking to ‘me’ as a mum, echoing the goals I was wanting to achieve. She made me feel that I could actually do it. Having then corresponded by email I felt the company was so friendly (not at all pushy) and I would fit in.
I have most enjoyed the support I have received from the team, both at 'The Keepsake Co’ and from the members on the Facebook group. Whenever I’ve had a question or query I have always received a quick response and lots of advice and help. I have gained inspiration from the other members business's and it is so interesting watching how their business’s have grown and are growing. I feel more like part of a ‘family’ than part of a team.
To anyone thinking of setting up a business with The Keepsake Co I would say don’t hesitate! If you are looking for a friendly, supportive, knowledgable and professional company to guide you gently through setting up and maintaining a successful business from home then The Keepsake Co are for you.

Ceri talks to us and tells us how Victoria at The Keepsake Co helped her to set up her own Keepsake business
Victoria is such a brilliant tutor. She takes things at your pace, is full of encouragement and really makes you feel as though you can do anything! I came away from my first session with her and knew that this was going to be an exciting adventure. I worked from home for a couple of years before opening my shop just under 4 years ago.Ceri.
