BUSINESS opportunities come in all shapes and sizes and from all different directions, but few put you in the network of international celebrities.
Nicola Crilly, who was a stay-at-home mother of three, became involved last September in Jamie At Home, a party planning business from Jamie Oliver that sells his dining and homeware range.
She said: “After going to a few of these parties as a customer and absolutely loving the products, I decided I would give it a go at becoming a consultant. “This new business venture has given me a new-found confidence that I never had before.
“I am now looking forward to the months ahead. With the festive season not far away, with this comes plenty of parties, and the chance to meet lots of new people along the way.” Nicola has found that her role comes with a few perks as well.
“In July this year, I was invited across to Jamie Oliver’s home for Pimms and pizza, along with 45 other consultants from Britain and Ireland.
“It was an unbelievable experience, as I have been such a huge fan for so long. He was so down to earth, and very welcoming to all of us.
“I am also able to combine my work with fundraising for chosen charities, which is an added bonus,” she said.
