Eve Whitmore has been the proud owner of her Kiddleydivey franchise in Shrewsbury, Mid Wales and Wolverhampton since 2014. Eve was looking for a business that would give her flexibility to spend more time with her children but still earn enough money to support her family.
With previous experience in sales, Eve decided that she wanted to do something that would help her give something back to the community and something that would offer her a flexible working life to fit around her family life.
“I had been looking at how to receive a full income with part time hours. When I started looking at Kiddleydivey I had two young children and just couldn’t see how my work life was going to fit around being a mum too. I had been interested in pursuing a career in music therapy when I was at school but the opportunity never arose. When I saw Kiddleydivey I knew it was the opportunity for me.”
“Kiddleydivey offers a proven business and support from someone who knows how it feels to go it alone. When I attended the first music session during my training, the atmosphere in the room was so flat. However, once the music began the room transformed and I decided it was something I could do and reallybuild a rewarding career from.”
Kiddleydivey is fun, engaging and entertaining. Franchisees offer music sessions to the elderly to promote memory engagement and mobilisation. Music classes for children are designed to be educational and promote development. The Kiddleydivey franchise opportunity gives you the chance to build a business whilst turning your love of music into a profitable and rewarding career. Kiddleydivey support and train you to forge a business that you can be passionate about whilst helping others in the community to live happy and fulfilling lives.
Eve now enjoys spending time with her family whilst still giving something back to the community. Eve has achieved her goal of running her own business, working part-time hours but still earning a good income.
“With Kiddleydivey, I liked the fact that I felt I was going to be giving something back to the community because I had spent my entire career selling andalthough it pays well it can be quite soulless. The business also give me more flexibility and freedom to spend time with my family. In my previous job I waswaiting outside the nursery for it to open and then arriving at the very last minute in the evenings. All the bonuses in the world didn’t make up for the fact that I felt I was missing out. It was when I had my second child that I began to realise it just wasn’t sustainable. Now I spend every evening and weekend with my family and we don’t have to miss out on valuable family time.”
Once of the huge benefits of being part of a franchise network is the support and training on offer. Eve found the training at Kiddleydivey extremely helpful in getting her business off the ground quickly and successfully.
“I spent a week working with the team at Head Office before I launched my business. We spent time running through business plans, the technical side of things and practical work. I started with watching a session, progressing to partaking and then eventually leading the session. I learnt so much from the training and was given advice and guidance on improvements to be made. I was able to ask for extra help in the areas I felt I needed more practice.”
