'Management bored the pants off me' A change for the BETTER!

LISA COTTON was a social worker for 15 years before becoming a showbiz agent.

Lisa, 39, of West Kilbride, now runs a talent agency catering for more than 700 weddings last year alone.

She said: "I spent the majority of my time working with teenagers from troubled backgrounds. Most of them were on the verge of going into care or custody. .

"When I moved into management the job suddenly changed. I was no longer on the frontline and it bored the pants off me."

Lisa teamed up with husband Del, an entertainer who specialised in weddings.

She said: "Del was getting more and more work and needed help to run the business." Three years ago I quit my job to join him."

Hire-a-band now has a pounds 1.5million turnover and a client list including X-Factor contestants The McDonald Brothers.
