This is how Scent from Heaven started, a selection of products in the cupboard under the stairs. We registered as a limited company at the beginning of 2020 with the hope to be able to stay at home with my three children for longer after taking maternity leave. That leave has now ended but with the current situation the world is facing, going back to work is now not an option for the foreseeable future.. So I thought there's no better time to really help my little business grow and aim as high as possible :)
The average UK start-up spends £22,756 in its first year. This does not include the money spent on business-specific activities, such as buying stock. It's a massive investment so any money earnt from selling products and crowd funding will be going towards this with the aim to have a brick and mortar shop open within the next 2-3 years.
I've been lucky enough to have been supported by family and customers over the last few months and now I am looking to expand from the little cupboard under my stairs with the long term aim of having a premises/shop so I am able to provide a larger and wider variety of products and also open up employment opportunities for those who are struggling to find work.
A lot of love and effort has gone into this small business and I am so excited for whats to come so thank you for taking the time to read this - I understand that these are difficult times but any support would be massively appreciated! Stay safe xxx
