An enterprising young mother is creating one business to make and save enough money to fund her dream business.

Broken Hill woman Paige-Lee Morgan, 25, will soon finish an Early Childhood Education and Care Diploma, and eventually wants run a childcare business from her own home.

But she needs money to bring her home up to scratch, with things such as bedding, educational aids, toys, and a revamp of her outdoors area, including a veggie garden for the kids.

“In order for me to fund my childcare business, I’ve decided I’m going to start my own beauty business so I can save towards my goal,” Paige-Lee said.

And to start her own beauty business, she has to first obtain qualifications.

Apart from study, she needs to complete practical tasks: eyelash extensions, nails (acrylic, gel and dip powder), waxing, facials, lash tinting, perming and brow shaping, massages, manicures and pedicures.

The mother of three needs to do 30 of each to gain her qualifications, and she has put the call out for anyone who would like any of these services to give her a call.

“Everything is free until I’m qualified, of course,” Paige said.

“Please do not expect 100 percent, as I am still learning, and feedback will be greatly appreciated.

“I’m still waiting for my kits to come as I haven’t started my practical work yet, only theory.”

She estimates it may be about three weeks before she begins her practical work, but people can give her a call and book in now.

She will be working from her own home, but can go out to people’s homes.

She’s already had people book in with her, but she said there were plenty of spots left open, especially for waxing.

Men shouldn’t be shy about their beauty needs, either, she said, and she would welcome doing her practical work on them.

If her beauty business booms, Paige-Lee said she would still pursue her dream of running a childcare business.

“I’ve always wanted to do it,” the mother of three said.

“I’ve been babysitting since I was 12 or 13 ... nine children at once at one stage.”

When she had her first child, the desire became stronger to be a stay-at-home mum and a stay-at-home businesswoman.

“It’s going to be a little bit hard with my three little boys, but I think I can make it work.”
