Guest Post: Scarlett Parties

And so to my next lovely Guest Post – Scarlett Parties – ever wondered if you could have it all?  Have your family AND start up your own business?  That is exactly what this ambitious Mummy did, this is her story . . .

imageI am a mum for two young children, a girl aged 2 and a half and a boy who is 13 months old, I used to work for the NHS as a Biomedical Scientist, and after the birth of my daughter in Dec 2008 I returned to work 3 days a week. I discovered shortly after I returned to work that I was expecting my son.

I was planning to return to work after my second maternity leave, and develop the business idea/hobby I had gradually overtime, but a combination of my son having a benign tumour behind his eye and voluntary redundancy being offered just at the right time, I decided that I needed to be home with my children.

I had previously arranged several family and friends parties and events, and also had experience working in both retail and hospitality.

This is how Scarlett Parties was born. I have been trading for approximately 6 months now, and loving every second. As my children are so small I now have the flexibility to work from home and also spend time with them.

They attend nursery 2 days a week which allows me to do my paperwork and attend meetings, networking events etc.

My business is taking off in all areas now, I am glad I took the leap when I did. I have featured in an article in The Sunday Times and also received the SBS (small business Sunday) retweet from Theo Paphitis, aswell as appearing in the local papers.
