Why sign up to a 1to1 course with me?

I have built my business from scratch combining my job in the city with my love for artisan products. I made this possible with dedication, passion, perseverance and hard work.

I found soap and candle making a very therapeutic way to escape from the daily stresses of working in finance and a great life balance.

I love helping others achieve their goals, whether you are working full time, part time, on furlough or unemployed there is always time to learn a new skill and the possibility to run a business that fits into your lifestyle.

I am an accountant specialised in budgeting and forecasting with an Honours Degree in International Business Administration and an Honours Degree in Business Studies. I enjoy teaching others and helping them along their soap making journeys.
