Business Mentor, Entrepreneur, Author
Who I Am
Hi there! I’m Jo, a besotted mother of two beautiful girls, a
wife, and founder of 3 businesses; Hallmark Carpets and
Flooring, Serenity Loves, and Jo Bevilacqua Mentoring
(previously The Unique Mumpreneur).
I’m so glad you found me here and I cannot wait to get to
know you and your business better.
By now I hope you have had a good nosey around the
website and feel like this is the places for you, if not, go
As for this page, you will find out a bit more about me, my
business journey and WHY I want to help business owners
like you to reach your full potential.
Why I Do This
Even if you do not feel like this is possible right now,
I KNOW you are capable of it,
you may just need some support and guidance to get there.
I am the first to admit that business is amazing but it can also feel so hard, there have been multiple lows and highs since starting my first business.
One thing that I learnt was that both are easier to deal with when you are surrounded by the right people that have got your back through the good, the bad, and the ugly.
It’s as important as anything else in business, and wasn’t the easiest thing to find, so that is why I wanted to create that under my own brand –
A safe space for business owners to grow and reach the next level of business with the comfort of having someone with you, every step of the way.
Through being in the business industry for 12 years now, I have founded three award-winning businesses;
Hallmark Carpets and Flooring,
and The Unique Mumpreneur, now Jo Bevilacqua Mentoring.
I’ve been through it all,
which means I know exactly what it’s like to make mistakes, or feel completely stuck. I think it’s imperative that this side of business is spoken about.
It’s becoming too normal to read a story on social media telling you that you can do ‘one thing right’ and have immediate success and financial reward, and it’s not right.
Building a business that lasts is a process, if it was easy as many of these ‘gurus’ say it is, we’d all be millionaires. We need to be realistic about business, realise that it’s okay to make mistakes, and that you can learn as much from your downfalls than from your successes.
I co-founded Hallmark Carpets and Flooring with my partner when I was on maternity leave in 2009, and two years later the idea for Serenity Loves followed whilst heavily pregnant with my second daughter.
My vision was to create a hair salon with an onsite crèche, as it was something I needed myself, and within four weeks, I had a 40 page business plan and began looking for premises!
Clearly I love a challenge!
I launched the business following the 2009 recession, in a competitive high-end industry with no knowledge or experience in the industry, but I was confident in my business, and the freedom it could it could give me, so I pushed forward.
And guess what? It paid off.
Serenity Love went on to win a variety of awards including;
Best Loved Business in Peterborough
and Mumpreneur UK’s Best Unique Business title.
It just goes to show if you work hard, and take action, you’ll get where you want to be.
As my business thrived, I started up The Unique Mumpreneur coaching business in 2018, to empower other mums to start a business.
I was also invited to judge several prestigious awards, such as the National Business Women Awards, and the Small Business Peterborough Awards.
Like I said, I clearly love a challenge, but I also LOVE to help others, so now I advise other business people from all backgrounds through our Mastermind classes, 1:1 sessions, and my Business Growth Hub membership. I successfully wrote my own book called ‘No Longer Last on the List’, to share my story, and encourage and empower other women to stop putting themselves last!
