Pictured below is award winning Belfast Telegraph, Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2012, Shauna Gallagher who has recently opened a new retail outlet at the Buttermarket in Enniskillen.

Shauna was one of the first Female Entrepreneurs to join the HATCH Female Entrepreneurs Programme in 2010 and to say that Shauna has grown personally and professionally in this time is an understatement.

From creating her own beauty range in her mums kitchen in Irvinestown, she now has her own store at the Buttermarket, Enniskillens artisan quarter. In addition, she successfully completed the Advanced Diploma in Management Practice, Female Entrepreneurs and enjoyed the programme enough to sign up for the degree year! Shauna will be completing this challenging programme at the end of September.

Despite these commitments, Shauna has also found time to enter and win a number of competitions, show casing her carefully crafted, 100% natural beauty products. This hardworking lady, has also become involved in sharing her experiences by responding to invitations to speak at a number of networking events across the province, including the BBC Entrepreneur Programme.

Speaking with Shauna about the opening of her new venture, Shauna said how she was delighted to be able to meet so many of her customers in person and ‘put a face to a name’. She also went to great lengths to explain the impact of HATCH on this journey. “My education with CITC and HATCH has played a vital part in the growth of my business it has not only given me the knowledge but also the confidence to take the steps to do so”.

The founder of Nature’s Inspiration is truly an inspiration on many fronts!
