Rachel Ray : Focus on Flexible/Home Based
This is a seminar for entrepreneurs / mumtrepreneurs who want to build a business to fit around their lifestyle. This is not to suggest that flexibility in working hours always means working part time - you may work 50 hours a week, earning handsomely. Attend this session to find out more, the available options and the differing levels of involvement.
Award-wining supporter of women in business Rachel Ray combines an ambitious and thriving business with her pioneering work to promote family friendly working and better working conditions both in the UK and overseas. Ten years ago Rachel was a high-flying business consultant, working across the world and in charge of a team of 60. Taking a career break in 2002 to have her two daughters, Rachel also took some time to re-evaluate her career and was reluctant to return to a corporate 9 to 5 life of constant juggling. So in 2007 she took the plunge and set up her own business, having spotted a real gap in the market for an ethical, professional, family and eco-friendly homecare business, designed for busy people. Bright & Beautiful now has 30+franchises operating across the country, which are run by people who want to step off that corporate ladder â€“ from bank managers to fashion buyers and sales execs.
