Well guys after you all reassuring me that a log cabin from mobile is a lovely idea I now have even better news :)

I enquired on an apprenticeship website to see if I would qualify with my new set up for a trainee and they rang today saying yes I would! All I need to do is to be able to offer them 22hours a week at £2.60ph (for under 18yrs) and they would pay me £750 after 2 months and another £750 after 12 months as a government insentive!

I expressed my concerns that I wouldnt find a trainee as I expected most would want to go into a busy salon and she said not at all, in fact most young ladies fear that the most and need chance to build their confidence which stops them from training in hair.

Im very excited, I trained under an apprenticeship and loved every minute, I cant wait to train someone the way I do things and have a mini me lol.

Ive got two local colleges contacting me to discuss detail etc and get everything set up once cabin is built and they can see setup and do risk assessment etc, then once Im back from maternity leave itll be all systems go!

Has anyone got any advice? I know the college will tell me everything but im eager to know pros and cons too? xxx
