We’re shining a spotlight on one of our members each month, to help our lovely ladies promote their businesses!
This month we caught up with Renata Green, who is a partner of Utility Warehouse.
What do you do?
I run a home-based business where I help people save money on all the essential bills like energy, broadband, mobile, insurance, and shopping by putting everything together on one heavily discounted bill. The other side to the business is mentoring other people, who join the company to earn an additional income stream to make their life a bit easier.
How long have you been doing it?
I have been a partner of Utility Warehouse for over 15 years now. When I started the UW business I had 7 other jobs all whilst raising my 3 children on my own. It’s definitely a blessing for me that I don’t have those 7 jobs anymore and can have a good night’s sleep now!
What kind of projects are you working on right now?
People’s biggest worry at the moment is the dramatic energy price increase. Our company guarantees to be at least 5% cheaper than the government cap, so most of my time is spent on comparing customer’s bills.
We also have an amazing fibre broadband with our low prices starting from £21.60 and some of our customers can enjoy full-fibre with up to 500Mb speed, which is very popular with larger families. With the Everybody Saves guarantee our customers can have peace of mind that they will definitely pay with us less for their utilities.
What is your favourite part of your job?
Being a single mum I’ve always been very careful with money, and maybe that’s why I’m so passionate about helping others save more. There is lots of job satisfaction, when you can see that the money customers saved, they can now spend on the things that really matter to them, like family. I’ve also made so many friends through my business and many customers keep inviting me for a cup of tea and we have regular social events with the team. It really doesn’t feel like a job.
What do you enjoy doing outside of your job?
I love dancing, reading and walking, but the thing I love most is spending time with my children and taking them on holidays, exploring different parts of the world, making memories and giving them experiences I could never be able to without my UW business.
Why do you attend Fubhub?
I absolutely love seeing other women succeed in their businesses and learn from their experiences. All ladies in Fubhub are very welcoming and we all want to help each other do better. The support of this group over the years has been amazing. It feels more like a friendship group to me.
