Tracy and Eric have opened their own business ‘BBF – Big & Bold Fashions’ and are over the moon with all the support from their Sarina Russo Job Access Employment Consultant, Davin Maddocks, and their Sarina Russo Entrepreneurs Business Solutions Coach, Melissa Dunlop.
Eric and Tracy have had an interesting journey - Tracy and Eric had applied for hundreds of jobs without success. Eric even undertook work trials and helped one employer set up their business yet he didn’t get a job.
Eris was devastated, disheartened and felt like he would never work again until he met Davin who recommended the services of our VOICE Psychologist and Allied Health team. At first he was hesitant but with the help of Davin he built up his confidence and started to look for alternative employment options – starting his own business with Tracy.
They believed there was an opening in the Wide Bay market for a plus size clothing business so Davin introduced them to Melissa from Sarina Russo Entrepreneurs who enrolled them in the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme.
Every day they both showed up with determination and the right attitude to succeed. They worked harder than anyone else in the course determined to open their own business.
Tracey and Eric did it. They have become financially independent and are true examples of how thinking differently can change your life for the better.
