? I intended to return to work part time for economic reasons and when this became an option with the company where I worked, I began to think of other ways to earn an income that would allow me to stay home with my daughter as much as possible. Childcare is so expensive these days and it seemed like the perfect way to combine motherhood with a career .??

Take

company name? Calica? from a combination of Canton? s name, his own name and that of their 14-month-old daughter Caitlin, Lisa launched the company at the end of last year.

I am constantly reviewing my suppliers and I am always on the lookout for new ideas so I can offer people something different. In addition, if a customer has a specific requirement that they can? T find, I will do my best to source for them. We aim to offer a first class service and we pride ourselves on our attention to detail, excellent friendly service, elegant presentation and fast delivery .??

Lisa confesses that he has not been an easy ride at times. ? There were many times when I seriously thought about quitting all this and return to work. There is no doubt in my mind that there are much easier ways of earning a living -???? My days are completely dedicated to caring for Caitlin so work doesn t usually start after she went to bed and continued in the early hours. It was a steep learning curve – I try to do everything myself to keep costs down, so I had to learn all aspects of running a business quickly. But I can honestly say I loved every minute and wouldn? T change it for the world. In fact I am already planning my next business !??
