Kerry started her solo home-based business Soul Triage RH INHA in August 2019 this follows 1:1 business advice and support from Enterprise Made Simple.
Kerry’s aim is to help others discover self-care along with better health and wellbeing through a range of holistic therapies including; Aromatherapy Massage, Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. Hot Stones Massage, Indian Head Massage, Reiki Healing, Reiki Distance Healing and Reflexology, but working alone she found managing her time and making the most of social media and business tools a challenge.
Kerry had previously tried to set up a clothing range, but this venture stalled as she didn’t feel she had the necessary understanding of the business world or confidence in how to run a business to make it a success. She was unsure of how to deal with uncertainty, which was a huge barrier to her achieving business success. Equally, she was unsure of how to make the most of digital marketing or how to effectively sell her skills and services.
Kerry was mentored by the Enterprise Made Simple business when starting her business so was aware of the additional support available through this as well as from Facebook Groups and print advertising.
Since engaging with Enterprise Made Simple, Kerry has established her business, has regular customers and a happy work-life balance from which she knew she would benefit from further training. The training was required due to limited funds and the need to professionalise her business in as short a space of time, and with as little expense as possible.
As a sole trader, Kerry is now able to manage her books herself and advertises her business through Facebook.
Kerry has gained a huge amount of confidence and motivation both personally and in regards to her business. She attributes this to the timely support offered by Enterprise Made Simple staff from the business advisors to trainers as well as the administration staff who have always been more than helpful and responsive to her questions.
Kerry plans to continue her journey with Enterprise Made Simple and complete the Greater Growth training in early 2020. She is looking to develop her services further applying the lessons learned through her interactions with Enterprise Made Simple.
Her plans for the future include working in partnership with other businesses in the local area and taking her sessions out of her home-based studio and into local schools as part of a package of wellbeing and exercise classes for youngsters.
