New stretch target

Storage.

Storage price in our pie char has been given as a promotional price. So we need to able to cover stotrage for another 6 months as we generate income to cover costs.

Import duty and logistics.

Some of prices are locked in for one month so there might a slight variation on shipping costs on backdrops and table.

 5-10 year Plan

  • To provide easy set up props that dont need alot of hours to set up.
  • To expand and create employment for people that need flexible work. Some students and parents benefit from flexible work.
  • We dont discriminate so everyone can work with us to help build a susitainable lifestyle.

When we expand, we will charge commission fee on all jobs undertaken by staff as percentage for using our products to earn a living.

We need staff to deliver and setup these props, in situations where we have booked  more events in different locations.

Weddings and engagements are covered in our portfolio but these are seasonal so we hope to expand into corporate events and provide for theme parties, shop openings, branch expansions amd coporate anniversaries.

If we stretch our budget, it is mainly to cover the storage charges as currently these items will be stored at home with us to start off with.

We also would purchase the Led Love letters which are used for weddings, anniversaries and engagements.


Who are we?

The company Bella Noemi Events was founded by me and my husband Stephen in October 2019.

I studied  BA Accounting and Economics at Middlesex univerisity. I am in final stages,studying towards an ACCA qualification (Assoication of Chartered Certified Accountants).

Stephen studied a BA Business Administration and is now pursing a new career in Nursing.

We are a small team at the moment however we are looking to recruit more staff to share this experience with us.

This is us.

We are a small company in our early stages of growth and it is challenging raising the funds at the moment.

Our initial nichie was mainly wedding when we incorporated as a business but realised that these are seasonal depending on the location.

So we are hoping to expand into the event props hire market.

The potential market and vendors has been indentified and all we need to get the ball rolling is the funding.

We set up a facebook page in January 20 but need to expand the services we can provide and to increase my customers.

The vision

To create lasting memories whilst changing lives through flexible employment.

Our pledge to provide flexible working for students and parents.

This is so close to my heart. When i was undertaking my undergraduate degree in Accounting in 2006, finding flexible work that didn't require a 7 hour shift was not easy. The only work available was working saturdays and sundays. I didnt have enough time to concentrate on my studies because i needed money to help survive as a student. 

I am relating to any students out there?

My student debt was raising and still that wasnt enough to cover all the essentials.

The student debt loan in uk has further gone up since my days and i can not imagine how most students are coping!

So why the students:

Some students come from families with low income or come from aboard to study. With the student loan debt level raising, students have take up jobs through deliveroo and uber eats just to have the flexible time.

I believe by providing students with flexible working hours, it will help more students have time to study and enjoy their student life.

Our props require 1-3hrs to set up or pack away. With the money they earn for every booking,we will take a commission for owning the product.

I believe this kind of work will not impact the time away from their studies and enable the students to provide for their needs such food and travel.

In a nutshell,my heart is out to help students because of raising student debt. See statistics below from forbes.com.

And why the parents:

Not all parents can afford to work full time especially if they are unskilled or thenorms of some professional job.

The government encouarges organsiations to provide flexible working patterns for its employees. I work for a company that provides this benefit however not all companies give their employees this benefit as it is not a legal requirment yet.

Our aim is to empower parents towards self employment in the long run .

As a full time working parent,i can relate with other parents who require a job that provides flexible hours due to increased child costs and pick up from school costs.

I believe these flexible work can improve quality of life for families and help parents spend more quality time with their children.

The charity "Save the children" published the article below and as my mother who has never worked part time, i am been forced to research into other alternative work to suit my child care needs. Please do google this article in your free time.

The long term goal after a year of growth is to help and empower mothers and taking away the society norms that having a child create a wall between you and a reasonable job.

In a nutshell, we hope to help students, young parents and parents in general overcame financial barriers,enabling them to access better education and flexible job opporunties.

I am humbled and grateful for your support.
