Claire Healey in St Albans and Harpenden has been a Raring2Go! editor since 2009.
"For me Raring2go! has proved to be the best job I could possible want! There are no stock, staff or premises issues. The hours are entirely my own, if my children need me, I am there and if it’s the holidays for them - then it can be the holidays for me too!
After the first issue, I made profit and now earn a great hourly rate. The biggest challenge is always the selling but this starts to become much easier when people see the magazine and you get testimonials from successful advertisers - once they book for the year, you know they are happy!
I have, and will continue, to recommend Raring2go! as a franchise opportunity. The support from Head Office is huge - they listen to our suggestions – and sometimes gripes - and do their best to solve them. They are always only a phone call away and provide the type of support many other franchisees expect and don’t get."
"I have achieved so much in my confidence, building friendships, getting out into networking groups..."
"I desperately wanted to find a more child friendly career, where I could still work hard but where I was in charge..."
"I'm proud to be part of the Raring2go! national family and love what I do."

I have never felt the value of being in a team more than in these last few months. Although I am my own boss, the support of our franchisor during lockdown, has been second to none. That support has seen regular and honest communication; training; practical advice; forward planning; and pulling together all editors to share ideas on how best to support customers and motivate each other.Sally Walters, Editor Raring2go! – Kidderminster & Stourbridge
