Starting a business whilst being a parent, how did you do it? I get asked this question a LOT, and in truth, there’s no short answer. But, if you’re interested in starting a business I’d love to share my story with you.
I’ll start by introducing myself to you. So, hello hello hello!
I’m Victoria and I own The Beautiful Method Franchising Group – an Eco Housekeeping business opportunity for other ambitious mums across the UK.
My franchising business grew from my original housekeeping business; The Beautiful Method Ltd, which provides Housekeeping services across South Cheshire and North Shropshire. Our service gives the gift of time to all of our clients and allows them to do what they love with the people they love.
When I decided to start a family I very soon felt the pressure that I would have to choose between my successful career in the fashion industry and being present every day in my children’s lives…. And yes, you guessed it I choose my children.
However, whilst being ‘just’ a mummy I struggled with my loss and it was a loss, I lost myself. I felt like I had lost my hopes and dreams but all of my drive, ambition and my determination were still there. And I needed a channel for that…. I needed to put that into something… that made me happy!
I wanted to still be me, and just because I choose to be a mum, should not have to mean that I also choose to lose myself… and you shouldn’t have to either!
I know I am not the only one, and taking a stab in the dark I would guess that you too are sat there probably thinking…
hell yes I should NOT have to choose!!!!
We should not be left to feel that we have to just accept this choice, and it saddens me that there are very limited options available that provide the true flexibility that as mums we need to be mum!
I don’t believe that a woman should ever have to choose between being who she wants to me and being a mummy.
When I started The Beautiful Method Housekeeping Service I wanted to create a successful business for myself that would bring me a good income AND give me time with my children. And do you know what? That is exactly what I have achieved! I am so proud of the successful business which I have built. I have a large client base and brilliant teams of other mums, all working flexible hours which fit around their family lives. And that’s why I wanted to bring this opportunity to other mums.
Over the last 4 years, I have developed The Beautiful Method Housekeeping Service into a full Franchise opportunity to offer other mums the exact business blueprint that they need to start and build a sustainable business that they can work around their family.
I have only ever worked 9-3 pm on the housekeeping service business and it has grown 64% year on year for the first 3 years.
And best of all, I have been present every day for my children no need for before or after school club or childminders.
Admittedly the last 12 months has been somewhat slightly different with the whole pandemic that is surrounding us, but we are still running as a housekeeping service, and we are still taking on new clients. New franchisees have started and launched in the middle of lockdown and are booking clients and hiring staff. They are starting on their journey to success, all whilst having home-schooling thrown into the mix.
I love TBM! The very community I wanted to create has come to into play, from housekeepers to franchisees, we are all just fucking rockstars! Running businesses, providing exceptional service to all our clients, trying to home-school and supporting each other every step….
That is what we do! This is what you could be a part of too!
For your investment fee of just £14,000 + VAT you get an amazing kit to get you started:
Here is just a snippet of what is Included:
We also have affordable payment options to help get you started:
£6,000 + VAT initial payment.
The remaining £8,000 is available to pay over the following options:
2 years at £350 per month
3 years at £250 per month
4 years at £200 per month
*prices are plus VAT
AND THE BEST BIT……..The monthly payments will not begin until 6 months of your business start/launch date.
It really is the perfect family business blueprint that you can build to a multi 6 /7 figure business AND still be there every school pick up, every dinner, bath and bedtime.
I absolutely love The Beautiful Method and what we have to offer, it has given me so much freedom and the chance to be present for my children (although some days I am sure they would rather I wasn’t ha ha ha)
Every day is completely priceless, no more missing the small things.
Here is what one of the franchisees has to say about being part of TBM – Anna from TBM Bath
My search for a company I could trust led me to discover The Beautiful Method, along with its franchising opportunities. It definitely plugged the gap in the market for the type of housekeeping services I was looking for, and I also decided it would be an excellent career opportunity.
After finding out a bit more I discovered it would provide me with a solid business model that I could run whilst also being a ‘present’ Mummy.
Furthermore, as a Franchisee with TBM, I can be an employer that values its staff and offers them stability in a normally unstable industry. All the while offering them the perfect work/life balance and a support network of other like-minded people.
I believe The Beautiful Method is the perfect housekeeping business model with a proven success story in the Cheshire region where it has grown from strength to strength. TBM has built a reputation for providing a service that clients trust and regularly recommend. A service that values each individual member of staff and provides a safe and secure environment for them to grow and be the best they can be.
