Feel Better Box UK is launched!!
How did Feel Better Box UK come about?
Holly has been my best friend since I walked into my Tutor Group and found her sitting in my classroom. She joined six months into the first year of Sixth Form at the school I had been at for the past seven years. That was 17 years ago. I moved to Australia 11 years ago and every time I come to the UK to visit, it’s like we’ve never been apart.
My little family unit went home to England for Christmas in 2018. It was going to be the first cold Christmas my children were to have since they were born in Sydney.
Holly had been recently made redundant and she was looking for a new challenge. And challenge she has now embarked upon. The crazy adventure of hustling your own business with little ones.
I admit I tired to push back on the idea of starting Feel Better Box UK not because I didn’t want it to happen, but because I know how hard it is. The juggle of growing a business, small children and no time is challenging and it’s not for the faint hearted. It was difficult to convey this, it’s like telling someone who doesn’t have children how tired you are. No one can understand fully until they’ve not slept a full night in six months.
But the more I pushed, the harder Holly pushed back and I knew she was the right one. Anyone who wants it that bad and goes for it almost off their own backs is the right person. Since I launched FBB in Australia, it had always been a dream of mine to have FBB in the UK. The crossover is huge because everyone in Australia knows someone in the UK and everyone in the UK knows someone in Australia, right? And I had quite a few people interested in doing it. But here’s the clincher – no one pushed the idea hard enough. No one had the drive or the persistence to give it a go. And that’s how I knew Holly is the right person to look after, nurture and grow FBB UK.
I am Holly’s my loyal customer because I know the love and care she has put into finding the perfect items to add to her care packages. I hope you will remember to look her business up when you need to send a care package in the UK.
