How did it start?
This business has started in a pretty unusal way. Or at least it seems like that when I look back. After having my second daughter, I was a bit restless (I know! How could you be with a newborn?!). I wanted something to do so decided to sign up with Avon. I thought it would be a good way to get some extra cash, get me out and about and give me some purpose (apart from changing nappies). Very quickly I got fed up writing out all the forms and my details on the brochures so I have made myself some labels. Those labels then became quite popular once I've shared them with fellow reps so I started doing them for others as well. But one thing is never enough for me so I started to think what else I could do. In time, it has turned into a 'proper' business with hundreds of products. What started as working, literally, out of my cupboard, after 3 years of investing (a lot of) money, time and effort, has now grown to an office/shop. I LOVE WHAT I DO. Not a lot of people can say that about their job, but this is my happy place and I love hearing positive feedback from customers, or being asked to do something new for them and test my limits.
So that's about it when it comes to the birth of Rep World, which later on has become Creative Company at the beginning of 2022.
