Flying the flag for British mumpreneurs

Flying the flag for British mumpreneurs


Mumpreneurs are taking the UK's small business economy by storm. But you may be surprised to hear they are flying the flag in foreign shores as well!

Liz Beavan, mum of 2 boys aged 2 and 4, is living the dream in more ways than one. Like many budding mumpreneurs her business has evolved through not only her talents but from the desire to raise her children and be a full time mum. Unlike most mumpreneurs she lives in Norway.

Photo Fairy Designs ( started as a hobby that has quickly developed into a successful business, launched in March 2011, and already awarded silver in the MumpreneurUK website awards in July 2011.
“I had such positive feedback from friends and family who received their edited photos and photo DVD's that the idea of starting it as a business began! Although we are based in the beautiful county of Telemark, Norway, most of my customers are currently in England.” Liz says “I guess this really is the beauty of the digital age. I can email my customers their images and many of them choose to print them themselves, or for customers who would prefer to receive their image as a print I can arrange that using a great printing firm in the UK that can print the images onto canvas, acrylic or even icing sheets so the images can be used on cakes! In this virtual world it doesn't matter if I'm in the UK or not.”

When she's not busy designing or enjoying time with her 2 young boys, walking through the most amazing Norwegian countryside. Liz can be found pining for Pork pies, Wensleydale cheese and fish & chips. “A trip to the supermarket is always high on our agenda whenever we come back to the UK! “

“I hope in the future to be able to do more business in Norway and have applied for a business Start up grant and support. My Norwegian does need a bit of work but I'm looking forward to networking with other small businesses.”
