The Spotted Zebra Company has just been on BBC Wales Today and BBC Radio Wales regarding small businesses. Lots more traffic to the site yesterday as a result!


I'm a mum of two young children who started The Spotted Zebra Company - an online accessories company (www.thespottedzebracompany.co.uk) - because I simply couldn't find a job that fitted around my children. I was also fed up of lengthy job applications that took me hours to fill out. A friend of mine started up a small business and told me how easy it was to do with minimum investment. Thankfully, she encouraged me to give it a go and the result - The Spotted Zebra Company. The Spotted Zebra Company is only just starting off, and as the children grow, I hope to be able to free up more time to spend building the business.


You don't need a massive loan to start up a business or get into debt. I started with £70 and have simply re-invested the money I make and watched the business grow. With no background in business, I've learnt - and still learning - from some amazing business owners that I have met through networking. They have provided some excellent advice, and furthermore, all this advice has been free!! I still have much to learn and The Spotted Zebra Company is only at the start of its journey.
