Christina has over 17 years of experience in financial accounting and management exposure working for SMEs. She also possesses very solid commercial expertise gained from working as a financial controller in various companies since 1994 and she is AAT qualified to technician level.
She says: “Life is always very busy for me and, in the past, I have struggled with being in full-time employment and getting my work/life balance right. I feel that being a franchisee will give me more freedom and flexibility to cover my commitments and therefore my work/life balance should be greatly improved.”
How Christina got involved with Rosemary Bookkeeping
“I came across Rosemary Bookkeeping in March 2011 after attending a franchise exhibition in London. My decision to join the Rosemary team was mainly based on the confidence in myself to be able to enhance and build upon what seemed to me to be an already sound business plan.
“The skillset each director of Rosemary brings together, in my opinion, is a rounded and well-thought out network of expertise and support, designed ultimately to assist me in achieving my future goals and aspirations.
“Buying a Rosemary franchise is totally worthwhile and if the commitment is taken seriously enough, it should produce and achieve high rewards.”
Christina’s secrets to success...
“I would like to think that my business will be one of Rosemary Bookkeeping’s many successful and achieving franchises and that my ability and expertise could lead to further personal development within the Rosemary franchise network.
“I don’t plan to make my Rosemary franchise any different to other Rosemary franchises; however, due to my own personal expertise there are some services within the bookkeeping market which could be developed within my franchise territory that perhaps would be niche to my franchise.
“This business will be challenging and will hopefully provide me with enough scope to grow my own business and at the same time assist in growing what I believe to be a great business venture which I think has commercial longevity.”
