I had a busy career in publishing management before leaving to have my two beautiful girls I had been married for 17 years when my x announced he was divorcing me on our 17th wedding anniversary, I had not worked at that point for over 12 years as my daughter was now 12, I was left with no money a huge mortgage and no way of providing for my girls. I applied for jobs with huge rejections as I had been out of the industry for so long. It was either a cleaners permission and I hate cleaning or working in a supermarket, neither of which would even pay for childcare let along make enough to pay for running costs on a house two children and myself and a car. With little confidence I had, I started to sell my own persuasions things were pretty dire for quite a while!. I found I could sell all the expensive clothes I had really easily people were flocking to my sales it wasn't long before I had enough money to start buying stock. Slowly slowly catch a monkey as a relative used to say to me. I slowly bought small amounts of clothing in from Italy and had a few friends round and every time they brought friends then friends brought friends and I would sell out each time. My confidence was growing! at a good rate!. I booked a local village hall fate for £20 and sold over £600 of stock delighted with the result I would book more and this became more frequent. The friends were all asking to have their own house party and this soon developed into a Hugh expansion. I one point in the early stages I earned in one evening over £1000 I cried all the way home, the next day I treated both of my children to new school shoes as the ones they had, had holes in the soles. My oldest daughter had to have a plastic bag inside the shoe over her foot to stop getting wet socks and feet. It was a pretty bad time but with the excitement of my growing business, I was finally getting us out of this mess.
I started getting braver and booking larger shows in Kent, Scotland, London, the Cotswolds and things got so big I had a full-time machinist and a couple of people in the office trying to get orders posted out from shows when we sold out.
It grew so fast that I decided to open up online and drop some of the shows, great for me not so good for my customers. I get daily calls when are you coming to my area are you doing Badminton, Burley etc I just Carnt get everywhere so with that in mind, I have Launched this Week with it being International Women's day yesterday FEATHERS OF ITALY ANGELS to encourage women like me who was left in a compromising position after a marriage breakdown which taught me the lesson very quick of self-reliance and Independence!
