Outside the 9 to 5 with Pennie and Ray from Creative Booth.
TWSCO: Why do you do what you do?
CB: We sort of fell in to photo booths. Pennie was helping her sister plan her wedding, doing lots of design and organising. She enjoyed it so much we were thinking, how can we get involved in other people's big days? After a long list we eventually ended up with a photo booth. We love bringing a bit of fun and excitement to a wedding day.
TWSCO: Do you do weddings full time? If yes, can you tell us how you felt when you made the jump? If no, what's stopping you?
CB: We would love to, however currently we don't. Creative Booth is still growing. As we reinvest in our business, I'm sure we'll get there. It would still be hard to give up the stability of a full time job and more weekends with our family.
TWSCO: What program or tech can't you live without?
CB: We have such a busy schedule, with over 150 events booked this year alone! We wouldn't be able to keep on top of it all without our CRM. We also work from our mobiles a lot, i don't think we could run our business without either of them.
TWSCO: What do you think has been a key reason for the success of your business?
CB: Probably our ability to be organised and keep on top of all the emails and enquiries. We also think our photo booths are pretty unique and we have great staff to help run them. Finally we also value being able to deliver the highest quality photo booth experience we can.
TWSCO: What's next for you?
CB: We'll be expecting kid number 3 very early next year so we'll see how we handle that before we go buying any more photo booths or starting any new businesses.
