The birth of Amor Beauty...

So I have decided to write my first #blog ekkk how exciting, with so many topics to talk about I thought I would start with the birth of Amor Beauty and how it all started.

Let me start by telling you all a bit about myself. So I am Sadiah owner and manager of #AmorBeauty. I opened the salon almost 12 years ago now having been made redundant from my then IT job. IT I hear you all cry, yes I graduated with a Computer Information Systems Design degree worked in IT for several years and then got made redundant. I took a good hard look at my life and decided IT was not for me and that I wanted to do something different.

I decided on #beauty and retrained to become a beauty therapist. I worked at a #salon for a short time and then one day decided you know what I can do this by myself, so the search began and I started looking at possible shops I could make into my own salon. After several months of looking I finally found this shop. I drove up several times and sat in my car opposite pondering whether this was the right thing to do and then thought if I don't try I will never know. I quickly dialled the agents number and made an offer. The next few days waiting were a killer but then I got the all important 'yes your offer has been accepted' and then the ball started rolling. I was all excited and scared at the same time.

Over the next few months I began setting everything up, looking for builders, suppliers, speaking with the council getting the neccessary licences etc and finally on 30th October 2006 I opened my doors to the public. I was so excited, nervous and scared all at the same time, what if it didn't work? What if I had no clients? What if people didn't like my business or like me? So many 'what ifs' but I pushed on and worked hard and it is the best thing I have ever done. Almost 12 years on and I am still here with so many loyal clients many of whom have been here from day one and remember me handing them a flyer as they walked past. I am forever grateful to all my #clients as without them I wouldn't have a business today. I made my #dream a #reality and it worked and so can you!
