May 2009 - MumsClub Advertiser (Business Opportunities)
“One of my friends had heard of mumsclub and directed me there to look at business opportunities and that is where I found the Pyjama Drama Franchise which was exactly what I was looking for. It is exciting, interactive, professional, profitable and more importantly – fits in around my family.
I have always been involved in drama and music and I have 10 years experience as a business and marketing consultant. I bought a Franchise in February 2009 and within weeks, inspired by the brand and the potential of the business, I joined forces with the owner, Sarah Owen and became a Director of Pyjama Drama Ltd.
MumsClub has led me to a wonderful opportunity for my career and my family. I can fulfil my career aspirations, I am running my own business and I have a great deal of job satisfaction. Pyjama Drama has inspired me and has brought a lot of fun into our family life.
Thank you MumClub. Without you I would still be pondering and weighing up my options. Now I am working around my family and loving every minute of every day.”
Claire O’Conner owner of Baby Ballet franchise and winner of ITV’s Mumpreneur competition 2008 as shown live on This Morning.
“Jane thank you for sending round that email about the Mumpreneur competition. If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be in the final. It was terrifying but what an amazing opportunity to shout about babyballet and get the positive messages across to many many more children to get active.
Also, I did the baby show at Earls Court and told loads of people about MumsClub - I was raving about you.
Thanks again and I really hope we get to meet again soon.
