As we take stock of another year past, January often becomes a time to really consider our futures and what gets us out of bed on a morning.

Have you ever considered What’s your why?- why you get up and do what you do? Maybe it’s time to take stock and consider another career direction. 

At Mess Around there is no ‘miserable Mondays’ here- we love that our franchisees can jump out of bed with a smile on their faces ready to bring the fun to their customers. 

We asked Sarah from Mess Around Oxfordshire about ‘What’s her why?. Sarah was Franchise of the Year in 2018 and also won ‘High commended Franchise of the Year’ at our 2019 Mess Around conference.

Have a read below to discover why she joined the Mess Around gang.

Why did you want to start your own business?

I wanted to start my own business as we didn’t have anybody close by to help with childcare for my son, Jack so needed to be able to be home in the school holidays when he started school and I didn’t wanna go back to my old job where I was working away and staying away from home a lot.

What motivates you to do what you do?

I’m motivated to run my own business to be the best messy play provider in Oxfordshire, I love reading the reviews from the customers, I love having the time to do my own thing when I want to and work when I want to and I just love seeing their happy children’s faces at all of my messy play sessions, and I love speaking to the parents and hearing how they love to come to the sessions and how it saves them having to do this type of thing at home! I’m also motivated by the awards that I’ve won whilst doing mess around Oxfordshire and would love to win more!!

Why would  you recommend a MA franchise? 

)I would recommend the Mess Around franchise to anybody who is good at motivating themselves and wanting to do a good job, if you want to be your own boss, work when you want too and be in control of your own life and destiny then I would definitely recommend Mess Around franchise, being your own boss is the best feeling ever!
