“When I decided to leave employment, the idea of franchising appealed to me because I felt it was a more viable way of starting a successful business. Following a tried and trusted model means less risk. I was attracted to the ERA model because I wanted a white collar opportunity that suited the management skills I had built over a long career. I was familiar with the concept and could see how it works in practice and why it was a worthwhile investment.”

took the plunge into self employment by pursuing the ERA franchise opportunity and hasn’t looked back. Now he enjoys an enviable work-life balance, allowing him to take multiple trips a year and a property in Spain which he bought from a salary most people only dream of.

“Being my own boss gives me the control to plan my work schedule. I am a very keen golfer and have had a lot more time to play in Spain. I can fly over to my Spanish office and enjoy the sunshine whilst working. I bought the property in 2013 and I’m hoping to spend between three and four months of the year there on working holidays. Since buying my Finca in Spain I’m learning Spanish and how to cook traditional Spanish food and drink the wine.”
