thanks all....new businesses are usually run at a loss 1st yr, 2nd yr break even, and 3rd start to make money

this is still in its infancy, 10m old business and she's made money every month so far, thats what pleases me so much :)

Good work, Lauren! Does she own her own business then, Mick? I didn't know that!

Hope she ends up winning the award! What an accomplishment. :yes:

last march she was walking past a hair dressing salon and there was a sign in the window asking for a beauty therapist to rent the room, she said to me how am i going to be able to afford the rates in our high street, as its a pretty expensive area to live in, so i just said go in and ask, worth a try so she did and bingo it was a great rate for this area so she took the room 2 months later she was up and running, she now rents another room there and has employed someone else to help out and she now got her product range back. great money earner that will be when she gets everything. so in 10 months shes started her business here[had one when she lived up near terry]and making money straight away and shes loving every second of it. its totally her business nothing to do with the salon at all which makes it all the sweeter for her

the salon she used to work at when she came back down here to live used to take 10k in selling products alone WOW!!!!

on friday lauren got a letter from the body who runs the awards scheme and she's got through to the final of the best new business category :wiggle:

ive just got a text from lauren she got a letter this morning telling her she is through to the final of the young entreprenaur of the year as well.

im so chuffed for her, she has worked so hard to get this business off the ground with no savings. she is taking more and more money each month, has her product range in place and took 200 from them alone on the first day they went on sale. she has employed another young therapist to help her out as she was snowed under with work, and now she has to increase her hours as the workload is getting more and more

to say im one happy chappy is the understatement of the year :D

Good news to hear that she's advanced to the finalists!!! :9: It's wonderful to hear that someone young, and energetic is making it in today's shaky economy. Especially since what she does can be considered in the luxury category!

Hoping for continued success for her, Mick! :yes:
