I was a dance lecturer at Weymouth College when I started my Razzamataz school and was quickly able to reduce my hours to part time. Although I loved teaching, as the business grew, I knew that Razzamataz had my heart and I was able to leave my teaching position fully in 2015. The transition felt super smooth and, to sum it up in one word… right. I was able to fully focus on my business and growing the school to numbers I never thought possible and achieve a flexible work/life balance.
Working for yourself and mainly from home has its positives and challenges. Over the last ten years I’ve trained myself to be more productive with my time and work smarter, not harder. What I love the most is that since my little girl Amelia has come along, I know I can fit my schedule around family time. I’m free to do the school run and fit work around her activities and needs. It does sometimes mean I have to work in the evenings or early in the morning but to be honest, I’m ok with that. I love the flexibility of my work.
