Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my story. My name is Fiona and here I will share a brief insight into how my company was founded.
Like a lot of people, I found myself furloughed during the Covid19 pandemic. However, this wasn't my main concern as in March 2020 I was just about to open up my company OneFloat, a floatation therapy centre based in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire. I have practised floatation therapy myself, and as a keen runner I find it very helpful with sore and aching muscles as well as the relaxation benefits it has to offer.
We decided to hold off signing anything as we knew lockdown was fast approaching and there was so much uncertainty surrounding the future. Fast forward 3 extremely stressful months and we had to accept that this was not the time to be opening a brand new business based on the high street and I had to make the heartbreaking decision to make my company dormant for the foreseeable future. Undeterred I knew I had a long term vision for OneFloat and it was always going to grow and expand to help people by using alternative therapies. As someone who practises mindful meditation on a daily basis, I know how powerful the practice can be and I believe in this fast-paced world we find ourselves living in now everyone can benefit from mindfulness.
About One Jewellery
So where does jewellery fit in on this journey I hear you ask. With so much uncertainty surrounding the future of the economy, I had to come up with a business plan that allowed me to work from home with minimal contact with others and no large financial outlay. I have always been interested in the benefits of crystals so I decided to learn how to make jewellery and incorporate them into every piece I make. This is now the first step, albeit a much smaller one, on what I know will be a fantastic journey. My vision is to help people with the stress of daily life and teach people how to benefit from relaxation and mindfulness. I hope that you love my crystal jewellery as much as I do and if you want to come on this journey with me as our economy recovers and I am able to expand my company then please do sign up to my email list.
Thank you for reading my story.
