MY BUZZ

My business grew very quickly after I won #SBS in March 2012. In 2013 I was shortlisted for Business Person of the Year at the Pride of Tameside Awards. Almost 3 years on and I'm now self employed full-time and launched my second business MWL Events in April 2013 which also became an #SBS winner in June 2014. We have big plans for both our businesses and proud to be part of the SBS family. Thanks for the boost Theo!

MY BIO

I have always been a creative soul and from an early age I was sewing, knitting and cross-stitching. In 2007 my partner and I moved from Bristol back home to the North West. I was out of work and wanted something to do that would pass the time so I started making cards. 8 years on and thousands of card designs later and I am now running MWL Designs full time alongside my second successful business MWL Events. Both my Mother and Father were self-employed market traders when I was growing up so I feel it's in my blood to become self-employed and carry on in my late Father's footsteps.

MY BUSINESS TIPS

Don't give up on something you're passionate about. Perseverance and a desire to succeed will help you get to where you want to be. Lack of money should not stop you becoming successful. Learn by your mistakes and move on.
