Razzamataz Franchise Testimonials
Below is a selection of testimonials from people that operate the Razzamataz Franchise or have used the Razzamataz business services in the past.
I launched in September 2011 when my daughter Holly was six and Freya had just turned one. The best aspect of being my own boss is flexibility. Although having structure is important the majority of the work can be done at any time. If things don't go according to plan I can always be there for them. If they are poorly or something special is happening at school, I can be there - without having a boss to answer to.
I’ve learned so many new things that if I had started out on my own, I would have really struggled to understand them all.
Having worked in musical theatre for 12 years I needed to move on, but I wanted to stay in the same industry which I love. I would recommend a franchise business to anyone who is looking into opening a business but has no knowledge of how to do it.
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.
Since I became a Razzamataz Principal in 2015, my life has certainly changed for the better! I moved from being a full-time secondary school teacher to working two days a week, with the rest of my time devoted to growing my Razzamataz business and I could not be happier. From the very first I felt like I was a member of an extended family - there is always someone on hand to help out with advice or suggestions and the level of support that I get from Head Office and the other franchisees is second to none. I love being able to work when I want to work and I am now able to fit my Razz work around my life and my family. This flexible working method really works for me and I am able to be there for my three children whenever they need me. Making the decision to move to Razzamataz was the best one I could have made - I could never go back now!
I’ve always had a passion for working with young people to encourage the next generation to become confident, happy and well rounded young people, so I felt the natural career path would be teaching. After graduating, I started my teacher training exams, alongside being a full time Early Years Key Worker and also juggling a part time role as a Teaching Assistant with a local theatre school, Razzamataz. As my role within Razzamataz grew, I soon realised that this franchise was something special. It also encompassed my love for teaching and my passion for both Early Years and the Performing Arts. In 2015 I made the scary but exhilarating decision to leave my full time job as an Early Years Key Worker and invest in my own Razzamataz. Five years later and I’m still loving being my own boss and choosing the people I work with is so rewarding. Seeing our students grow in confidence each week and achieve things they thought they could only dream of, such as dancing down Main St USA in Disneyland Paris as part of the pre parade ... is just magical!
