“You work for yourself but with LighterLife’s support, you’ll never work alone”.
Helen Bowling became a LighterLife Franchisee five and a half years ago after finding her previous job was stopping her from spending precious time with her son. “Before LighterLife I spent 15 years in various FMCG Sales & Marketing roles. It was a career that I loved, but the hours and lifestyle really didn’t work around my family commitments. I enjoyed working but something had to give so I could enjoy my son growing up.”
With LighterLife Helen finally found a career which could fit in around her family and bring her real satisfaction. “The ability to work around family life and set my own hours was what attracted me initially, and it’s still the case today. I put in the same hours as my previous role but am able to choose where and when I do them which gives me the freedom I need. What’s more, I have always really enjoyed working with people and supporting them to achieve their goals and my franchise really allows me to do this in a way other jobs don’t.”
Despite never having run a business before, Helen contacted LighterLife to enquire about running her own Franchise and found she received all the training and support needed to launch her business confidently and successfully. She says, “The training was intense, but amazing and left me feeling fully confident and comfortable to get out there and start growing my business. Running my own business has changed my life in so many ways - I am able to set my own priorities and focus on developing the areas of the business that matter to me. It also means I am able to keep developing as an individual myself, while continuing to give my clients the best support that I can.”
The LighterLife franchise is a tried and tested business opportunity with low initial investment, positive cash flows and excellent returns.
The franchise package provides you with everything you need to get you set up to run your own successful business. Including
Helen’s advice for those interested in launching a LighterLife franchise is simple, “Absolutely do it!” she says, “It’s hard work but it is so rewarding watching your clients achieve their dreams and knowing that you have supported that change.”
