Sara Lee Perry always had a passion for painting. She graduated with an education degree and became employed in the school system. She entered some of her paintings in competitions and won several awards. While on maternity leave, Sara Lee began to consider opening her own business. She visited the Alberton CBDC Centre to get help with a business plan.
“I had a lot of questions and concerns, and I visited the centre up to three times a week,” says Sara Lee. “They were always happy to help, and provided excellent support and guidance.”
She decided to leave her teaching position of six years and went after her dream career. “It was a big step, and at times it was scary.” But today she is in charge of her own career and is very proud to be able to help other artists by providing a space to show the work of up to 24 artists at her studio.
She highly recommends the services offered by CBDC and credits them for helping her become an entrepreneur.
