Lauren Bill, principal Razzamataz Weymouth, shares why she made the move from teacher to franchisee
“After opening my school in 2011, I was in a position to leave my teaching job in 2015 and I have never looked back.
“What I loved about teaching was the interaction with students, creativity in the studio and sharing my passion for the arts. I get all this and much, much more from running my business which I can manage to fit in with my lifestyle. I am free to decide my own working hours and set my own goals.
“I took the step back from teaching gradually, by initially reducing my hours to part-time before taking the leap to run my school full-time a year later. It’s all the benefits of teaching on your own terms. And I love it.”
