MY BUZZ

As a small business with a limited marketing budget, it can be challenging trying to get the word out about my products, winning SBS has enabled my brand to be showcased in front of a vast amount of people, not only that, it's a great chance to network with other businesses which is key. It's an award that is held in high esteem in the land of twitter and an honour to be part of it.

MY BIO

I started making soap about 5 years ago after watching a television programme where Kirstie Allsop was making soap, I though that I would give it a try and set up my own business, after many years of making soap, practising the techniques and getting the oil and scent combinations just right I perfected the art and set up Louisa Brown soap about a year ago. I started making soap for women but I also knew that I wanted a range for everybody, including dogs!, so I introduced a dog soap, which is hugely popular, and then the mens soap range. It has progressed over the year, from selling soap only to a range of gift boxes and gift sets. I am currently working from home but I am currently looking for bigger premises. My products can be found in various shops across the country, I attending many craft and artisan markets across Lancashire and Yorkshire as well as selling online

MY BUSINESS TIPS

I love a good motivational quote and this is my favourite because it is the one I keep in mind when times get tough. "Never, never, never give up" Winston Churchill. Keep your goal in mind and do something every day, no matter how small, to move your business forward. If you have an idea and it is one that you can put into action, do it, If it doesn't work try something else, don't keep doing the same thing over and over again in the hope that it will work. I've realised owning your own business is the hardest work I've ever done but its the most enjoyable, meaningful and satisfying work I have ever done, I love it!
