Name: Nancy Boxall
Company: Rosie Brown Hairdressing
Debbie Mills, Client Servicing Manager at The Sourcing Team chats to Nancy Boxall from Rosie Brown Hairdressing as part of our #Buy16in16 Campaign.
Q: What made you decide to set up your own business?
A: The opportunity to own my own salon arose so I took up the challenge at 23 years old. 20 years on and here I am!
Q: What do you like about running your own business?
A: The freedom and flexibility – I have two children, who make life busy too. I am lucky to have reliable staff – and I never take that for granted.
Q: How do you keep yourself motivated in tough times?
A: Tougher times make me more determined to succeed – chin up and carry on!
Q: Top tip for continued success in business?
A: Always be yourself and treat others how you would wish to be treated.
Q: Can you buy from 16 women owned businesses in 2016 and share the challenge?
A: Yes and I already do, through my beautician and friend’s jewellery and clothing business…supporting both throughout each year.
“I met Nancy 11 years ago through a mutual friend. At that time our children were all babies and I admired her running her business while juggling a little one. I was not happy with my hairdresser at the time so changed hairdressers to support her business and have done so ever since. She is not only great with hair but a fabulous friend to have too!” Debbie Mills
