Six months in, Scamps & Champs latest franchisee is loving being in control of her life and career! With the support and guidance of Lesley and the Scamps & Champs team, Jeanette Harding has steadily grown her Fareham based franchise.
"I’ve always kept pets and loved the idea of working with animals. I dreamed of working from home with my own business after spending 10 years in a high pressure job in the banking sector. I needed a change of lifestyle and this has certainly given me that!"
While running your own business certainly comes with its challenges, Jeanette is enjoying planning her workload to fit around her home life, as well as benefitting from a more outdoor lifestyle than she was previously accustomed to.
Jeanette has already taken on a series of self-employed staff to help her with pet sitting, dog walking and home boarding.
"I’m really grateful for the support and guidance Lesley has given me, particularly with marketing, as that was something I’ve never had any experience of. The support from Scamps & Champs has ensured my marketing has paid off and will continue to do so as I look to grow the business."
And in just six months, the business has certainly started to grow well with 49 clients and 865 jobs to date!
"I really enjoy myself now, every day! What’s not to love about walking dogs and visiting all the lovely pets I now care for and their owners who I now count as friends! I only wish I’d had the opportunity to do this years ago!"
