In 2007, after several frustrating experiences with tradespeople, Jo Behari established Home Jane Ltd; the UK’s first all-female property maintenance company. Being fairly handy herself, it was important for Jo to have reliable customer service and well trained tradespeople when having work done in her home.
The Home Jane team of tradeswomen tackle all household jobs – from bathroom & kitchen re-fits to hanging blinds and curtains. In 2009, she established a series of DIY workshops with Alison, to teach people some basic skills to tackle DIY in their own homes. These take place at the lovely Good Life Centre– a wonderfully bright workshop, complete with its own beautifully organised tool shed for you to see what a proper shed should look like!
As a successful business woman, Jo has won a number of awards and is a mentor to several start-up businesses. Jo speaks regularly at business conferences and at schools – helping young kids who are choosing their careers. Jo currently presents the Channel 4 series – ‘Make, Do & Mend.’ Well done Jo!
