Having set up my own business on a shoestring I want to expand and push myself and my business further and create employment for someone.
i retrained at the age of forty having had terrible depression and anxiety, with the support of another local business woman I opened my own nail bar in July last year. I did it all on a shoestring budget and it has gone very well! In my first six months I have been lucky enough to turn a small profit.
I have another room in my salon which I want to use for other treatments such as spray tanning, holistic therapies and other beauty treatments.
To do this I need further equipment such as facial equipment, towel cabinet and more towels and products.
I strongly feel that if I can offer more treatments I will gain more clients.
I am funding my own level two beauty course and have funded a spray tanning course but money has run out to get new equipment. I have scoured ebay for bargains and am lucky enough to be involved with Wild Women of Welshpool a local business enterprise group for women in business, one of our members underwrote the cost of decorating the room in the salon and another bought me a beauty couch.
my ultimate goal is to provide full time employment for my trainee who is currently funding her own training, she is a local mum with a young baby who has also herself struggled with depression and anxiety and I would love to be able to offer her that opportunity, she has shown me real commitment and hard work, currently I can only offer her a few hours a week paid work.
I have recently sold my horse and all my horsey items to raise money to pay for my course which was a wrench but I am passionate about making my business succeed.
please, please consider helping me, I have battled serious depression and fought my way back and showed what I can do , with a bit more equipment I know I can make my salon one of the most successful in the area.
I would be happy to offer any backers the chance to have up to 50% or more off the price of treatments in the salon.
Please consider me, even a backing donation of a few pounds would make a huge difference.
