One of my weaknesses is that I can’t stand being bored. You might wonder how I could possibly have been bored looking after my big family and being a full-time corporate accountant, but I always felt something was missing from my life…
Then one day my husband returned home from a trip to the US with a flyer for the Bricks 4 Kidz® franchise. He was annoyed with himself for not having thought of using LEGO® bricks as an educational tool himself.
For me this opportunity was exactly what I’d been waiting for. A little less than four months after contacting Bricks 4 Kidz®, I became franchisee.
This was only the first step as my end goal was to become master franchisee for France and Switzerland, a goal which I realised in October 2015.
My favourite in life : buying decoration for the house, but often upset not having time to set them up properly once arrived at home!

These are some of the characteristics I look for when choosing team members.
In addition, everyone speaks at least two languages fluently.
All staff are trained in the Bricks 4 Kidz® method.

Are you the next Bricks 4 Kidz® entrepreneur?
Thinking of starting your own business, but not sure what and how?
As the master franchise holder for Switzerland and France, I am looking for entrepreneurs who are keen to embark on the exciting journey of setting up a Bricks 4 Kidz® franchise with the support and guidance of a team of experts.
Personally, I’ve loved learning about different areas of business, as well as about myself. Has it been easy juggling four children with setting up a new business?
Not always, of course, but it has been worth it every step of the way.
I’m professionally 100% more fulfilled and I hardly ever miss a sports days or school concert.
