Katy & Nadine, Rich House, Poor House, Channel 5 – What Happened Next?
So it’s now 6 months on from when the final episode of the latest series of of Channel 5’s popular inspirational life swap documentary, “Rich House, Poor House’ aired.
In that episode for anyone who is yet to watch it, we got to see The Permanent Makeup Training Academy’s Founder & Head Trainer, Katy Jobbins and her husband Paul Bate along with their 3 young children, swap lives with single mum, Nadine a hairdresser on benefits from Portsmouth.
What Happened In The Episode…
During the episode, which was aired just a few weeks into the UK’s total COVID19 Lockdown, we saw how Katy successfully managed a very tight budget of just £86 to last the week, even managing to squeeze in a date night including a bottle of bubbly for good measure.
At the end of the episode, we got to see Katy offer to train a very emotional Nadine in permanent makeup for free. She also offered to give her a full permanent makeup kit and enough stock for her first 50 clients, as well as offer to help mentor her to set up and run her own permanent makeup business.
The show was filmed in February, and as promised Katy immediately booked Nadine in for training in March. By the time Nadine attended her training course in mid March, she had amazingly already lined up her first 10 clients, however then came COVID19 and…
…Things Didn’t Go Quite As Planned.
Her training course was going along nicely, however with one day of her course to go, the UK was put into an immediate lockdown situation and her course had to be cut short. Although Nadine was not able to get off to the flying start she had hoped for, during the following months of lockdown, Katy and Nadine were in almost constant daily contact. Having recently lived her life for a week, Katy had first hand experience of what Nadine was having to cope with and what she might have been going through. During the days, weeks and months that followed Katy managed to help Nadine keep her chin up despite being confined to a top floor flat with seemingly no end in sight or light at the end of the tunnel.
It was not until Mid August 2020 that close contact services such as permanent makeup could resume. So 6 weeks on from treatments being able to resume and 6 months on from the start of the UK’s COVID19 original lockdown, did Nadine manage to set up her own permanent makeup clinic and start a new career that could potentially change her life?
You bet she did!
As promised, as soon as enough restrictions were lifted Katy immediately invited Nadine back to her Permanent Makeup Training Centre to complete her live model training. Whats more, over lockdown Katy had also managed to design and create a brand new top of the range website to help promote Nadine’s new permanent makeup business.
It’s fabulous to see how with the right guidance, training and support how anyone with persistence and dreams and ambitions can change their life. If Nadine, continues on the same path she is on now and continues to put the effort in, and stay positive then who knows, in 12 months or so from now, maybe she will be living a top 10% income lifestyle!
