Vintique Upholstery's Sharon O'Connor on a Power Hour call

Introducing: The Power Hour with Sharon O’Connor

When I started out in upholstery there was no post training support. I did my training and mastered the technical side of the trade. But as for setting up in business? I felt totally alone and didn’t know where to go for advice. The world of upholstery seemed like a very secret club and asking questions seemed very daunting. Sometimes the answers that came back from more experienced upholsterers were brutal.

Ever since, I’ve made it my mission to be open, honest and as helpful as I can about what it takes to make it in upholstery. And today I’m giving you the opportunity to access my knowledge and experience with a totally bespoke and exclusive POWER HOUR with me.

This online upholstery mentoring session is the perfect space to fine-tune your business, develop your skills and boost your confidence. Running your own upholstery business should be rewarding, profitable and creatively fulfilling. But there are times when you might need a second pair of eyes, or simply a sounding board to help with the everyday challenges of being a small business owner. No question is a stupid question.

“I am an open book, happy to share mistakes I’ve made along the way – I’ll tell you exactly how it is.”

Ideal for anyone starting out or just feeling a bit stuck in their upholstery business, I can give you the support you’re looking for. Through this one-to-one online session (or sessions) we will identify what your specific challenges are, then try to fix them! This will give you the opportunity to work for an hour on your business and not in your business.
