I was a TV producer for 10 years and travelled around the world with it. When I returned to the industry back home I became frustrated and stressed.
Then I realised why, I was working long hours with the huge work load and couldn’t sleep properly as my mind was always buzzing thinking about work. Due to a friend’s recommendation, I started looking into running my own businesses instead, where all the energy in put into the business would directly benefit me.
I was looking for a business with low overheads that wasn’t seasonal. I stumbled across Express home and office cleaning, and I bought a franchise and a regional master (soon followed by more Regional masters and the state master franchise – Taking on the Regional and State position allowed me to train, support and guide other franchises.
I can honestly say buying my own business was one of the best decisions of my life. Within 6 months I employed 2 staff and after 2 years I was only working 3-4 days a week 7-1pm, now in my third year I work 2-3 days a week. This has given me freedom.
I can work more but I choose not too as lifestyle balance is more important to me at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, I worked really hard to get my business to this level but I’m not afraid to work hard as long as I have something I am working towards, just didn’t expect to get here so soon 🙂
There are many franchise companies out there. I decided to go with Express Business Group
