Small Business Saturday - Meet the mum - Diamond Beauty Boutique

Saturday 5th December is small business Saturday in the UK so I thought I would showcase some lovely businesses and being a mum (and newly in business) I decided to highlight the mums out there doing it and working their business like a #bossmum.

So first up is my lovely friend and small business owner who has been working her business for over a year now as well as a part time job and being mum to two lovely little people.

What's the best thing about working for yourself?

I love that I am my own boss, I can work when I want so I can fit it around my family, and I like that I have control over how my business grows.

What made you decide to take the plunge?
I've never really known what I wanted to do with my life, I never wanted to be in an office job and now I want more time with my children so I thought 'Why not, I've got nothing to lose'.

Biggest challenge you face?
I'm not the loudest person and I've never had a team before so it's all very new to me when it comes to training people and being in charge.

What's the biggest misconception people have about what you do?
That it's a pyramid scheme and that you don't have to actually work hard for it to succeed.

What one tip you you give to someone who is just starting out?
Be enthusiastic, love what you're doing and people will pick up on that.

Where do you see yourself this time next year?
Hopefully with a team 3 times the size it is now and song this full time so I can spend more time supporting them.

How do you juggle motherhood, work and your own business? No idea haha, I try not to work when I'm with the children so I'll do a bit before they get up and then when they've gone to bed. My children do like to get involved with my business which is fantastic so that really helps.

What one thing do you want your children to take away from seeing you busting your groove?
I want my children to know that if you work hard then you can achieve anything.

How did you get into what you do?
I joined another company originally and it just wasn't for me. I kept seeing things about Younique and in the end realised that it was a sign that I had to give it a go.

Brief description of what you do.....
I have a business with a US cosmetic company called Younique, I sell amazing cosmetics but it's more than that it's being able to support a team of ladies and see lives start to change as we all become more confident and grow our businesses.
