A change to her employment in the recruitment sector set Vicky Whitwell on the path to becoming a business owner and she is now running award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, parties and events in the Coventry West area.
We asked Vicky to share why she loved providing creative activities in her community - this is what Vicky said...
"I wanted to be able to take and collect my children from school. I also wanted to be in control of the hours I worked. I made a decision to try something different. Something I enjoyed and which worked around my family."
"I love the range of activities that are available within the business. It gives me the flexibility to be able to offer what best suits my own needs, and what will work well in my area. I've always enjoyed crafting with my children and spending time making the memories that last a lifetime. Education is really important to me. I love that what I do each day adds value to children's and adult's lives through inspiration and individual creativity."
"I love watching how much enjoyment the children get from the different sessions. In our Tiny Treasures sessions we make super cute keepsakes and I love seeing how the little ones grow and develop..."
"Excited! My goal is to inspire thousands of children each month and have an awesome team to help me succeed!"
