VISION is a lifestyle brand producing local monthly magazines all over the UK. The first magazine was launched in Brentwood in 2016 and has proven a big success.
VISION was the brainchild of businessman, and My Local News Founder & Publisher Nik Allen, who already has 15 monthly news titles under his belt and 13 years of publishing experience added to 25 years in sales and marketing.
After launching his first news magazine in 2006 in Abbots Langley, Nik went on to launch news titles in villages and towns across Hertfordshire and in recent years has taken the model to nearby Middlesex and Buckinghamshire where they are an effective form of local news.
Nik has also been awarded the ‘Most Inspirational Business Owner’ award by the Association of Independent Magazine Publishers two years running.

VISION takes away the stress and mega overheads of running your own business. Which is what I love about it. Over the years running my previous companies you can get caught up and stressed about the things that aren’t going to grow your business. But as a VISION Franchisee you just focus on connecting with local businesses, advising them on how we can help get them.Nik Allen Junior, VISION Brentwood & Ongar and Billericay & Shenfield
This has been one of the most challenging things I've ever done - but also the most rewarding. I've been fortunate enough to be able to earn a good living from VISION to date, whilst also getting to spend more time with my young daughter than I could ever have hoped for. I'm still in my first year, but I already know this is what I'll be doing for many years to come.Will Taylor, VISION Woodbridge
The best decision I’ve ever made in business to date. I wish I had done this earlier. If you put in the hard work then the rewards are limitless. My experience has been very good great communication with the office there is a clear understanding of how VISION should be presented but in the office also welcomes any new ideas from the franchisees.Brett Shohet – VISION Hornchurch and Loughton
