Sarah Hawes tells us about starting her Little Squigglers franchise in North East Essex:
I first enquired about the franchise in February 2016, and am now on my fourth week of class sessions!
This was a massive career change for me, and with my eldest son starting school in September I wanted to change my life for the better. I had a career in sales that I had been proud of, but it was getting harder and harder to continue with the job as a working mummy. My main priority was and still is caring for my two young sons, too many times this was being compromised, and I was under a lot of pressure from the company I worked for.
I had also become disillusioned with the sector I was in, and wanted to do something that I felt was much more satisfying to the soul, and as I am a creative person, business minded and wanted to work with little people, a Little Squigglers Franchise seemed like the perfect option! I feel like I have definitely made the right decision, and I am thoroughly enjoying my new venture.
It feels empowering to take control of your life and make a big change, and I have no regrets at all about my decision. It is hard work, and you have to be dedicated to the business, especially whilst you are building the business up. A good support network is essential, I am very lucky to have a very supportive husband and close family. The nice thing is that I can fit the business around my family, and even though it is a franchise, Little Squigglers is very much my own business, and has become a happy part of my family life.
My two sons really enjoy helping me prepare the crafts for each weeks classes! I feel passionate about the Little Squigglers brand and very proud to be a part of it.
When you purchase the franchise, everything is ready for you to get started, from the start up package to the very comprehensive manual to the brilliant hands on training! There is a great deal of support from Head Office and there is also a great support network within the rest of the Little Squigglers franchise team.

Choosing Little Squigglers was quite an easy choice for me. I looked into the different franchise businesses in this area and this one stood out. Amanda's knowledge in this area shines through from first contact with her. The classes are really well planned and thought through and the information provided from the start reassured me I was making the right decision.Katie - Fife
