Why sign up to a 1to1 course with me?

Learn on your own with an experienced tutor.

I have built up 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 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 I have an Honours Degree in International Business Administration. I enjoy teaching others and help them along their soap making journeys.

My products and courses have been Highly Commended at the Bexley Business Excellence Awards 2020 and I was a finalist for Best Entrepreneur of the year.

    Feeling excited after a fantastic day with @oldbexleysoap making beautiful soap (who I can’t recommend enough). Paula was patient, professional & truly inspiring.
    A lovely vegan lunch too. Watch this space in 2021, amazing things to come.

  2. Petro

    I have just completed a 1-1 course on Zoom in Soap and Cosmetic Business Compliance Course with Paula and can highly recommended this course to anyone who is interested in starting a business in soap making. Paula does not hesitate to share her knowledge and experience. She is not just there to run the course but will go that extra mile and answer any questions. Paula has got a real interest in her students needs. I have really enjoyed doing the course with Paula and she is friendly, patient and makes it enjoyable and shares her passion in her own products. I am looking forward to create my own products but also with the assurance that Paula will be there if I need any assistance.
