“I started the company and bought the franchise in April 2016, I’d been working in the city for 30 years and some personal circumstances made me think I had to move out of the city and work locally. I didn’t want to work for anyone else as I always felt I had an entrepreneurial spirit within me but never really had an opportunity to do anything about it, until it was forced upon me. I had a series of life changing events, my Mum died in the March and very strangely from beyond the grave she actually won £14,000 on the lottery! We found it on her bank statement and managed to track it down to 5 numbers and that gave me a nudge to be able to invest in the franchise that we now have with Not Just Travel.
Up until June this year I had been working from home and then this shop unit came up on Camden Road and it’s worked perfectly, enabling me to get out to more people, it’s a shop but it’s an office as well and it’s allowed Hannah to join, which has made a big difference to us. The passion I have is an easy question to answer, I just LOVE travel and the only trouble I have now is I want to go on every holiday! The travel industry is absolutely fantastic, everyone you speak to has always got a smile on their face, everyone is happy and after coming from a corporate background where I was a Lloyds insurance broker where everyone was very miserable, I’m now in such a happier industry. We’re an independent, bespoke and personal company and are always willing to give free advice about any destination and help people plan any type of holiday.”
