"I'm proud to be part of the Raring2go! national family and love what I do.
Little did I think in the Autumn of 2007 when I put my very first issue of Raring2go! to print that that 10 years later I’d be putting my 41st one to print! In the last 18 months I’ve reached the milestone of 1million copies in Aberdeen City & Shire, launched into Glasgow and celebrated our 10th birthday.
My little 18month old daughter is now on her final year at primary school and my Raring2go! business has given me the time flexibility and financial freedom to support us, allow me to develop other business interests and to embed me strongly into my local community. I have also been lucky to gather a group of like minded women around me who work with me on a freelance basis to produce the very best magazines we can each issue.
I’m proud to be part of the Raring2go! national family and love what I do. Every day brings something new and we not only help local families have fun and make the most of the local area but we help local businesses reach those families, helping our local areas thrive. What’s not to love about that?"
"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 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
