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."
