Rebecca knew it was time to be the boss when she was diagnosed with MS

With help from the Combined Authority, she began to build her side hustle into a viable business.

Rebecca signed up for Exploring Enterprise to find out how she could realise her dream of working for herself

She was finding it harder to keep up with the demands of her day job, following her MS diagnosis, and needed to be in control of her own day. She launched Ethereal Bliss Beauty and is building it to a point where she will soon be able to give up her day job.

"When I was diagnosed with MS I realised that life was too short, and I really wanted to push myself while I still could to start my own business."
