How Did Sara Create Her Wealth?

In 2005 whilst still studying at University, Davies founded Crafters Companion. She was working as a placement for a crafts company and realised that there was a gap in the market for a tool that could create custom made envelopes for handmade cards.

Along with her father, who was a retired engineer, they designed the Enveloper. She then proceeded to sell her product on a TV shopping channel. Within 6 months she managed to sell 30 000 Envelopers.

By the time she graduated from university, her company was turning over £500,000. Crafters Companion now exports to more than 40 countries all over the world. The company has employed over 200 people across the globe and has headquarters in the UK and the US.

Research shows that Crafters Companion had a turnover of £25 Million in 2018. Sara believes that her secret to success is that she and her husband are laid back, and empower those within their company to make wise decisions for the business.

Sara Davies uses her entrepreneurial skills to empower women in their businesses, whilst guiding and advising them on how to succeed. Because of this, she has been awarded an MBE.
