lot can happen in a year. My life has certainly changed since last July. I’ve up- rooted, changed jobs and created a whole host of new


and wonderful friendships (and left a few unneeded ones behind). If I hadn’t moved to the big smoke, I would not be in this position. It was my decision to throw fear out of the window – my car window to be precise – that left me feeling happy and fulfi lled.


Fear can play a big part in holding you back when opportunity knocks. It’s also an emotion that I have learnt to embrace (as well as I can). Change is not always easy but, with time and commitment, the fi nal outcome is worth it. Having to adjust your life can be a deciding factor when considering franchising, too. But, with the right support and research, investing into a tried-and-tested business model can be a positive move.


What I’ve also found is how much passion plays in the decision to franchise, most notably this month in our feature on the automotive sector. Although money


plays a crucial role in our present and future comfort (we may not like to admit it), a passion for the business you want to invest in is a must. If you are thinking of taking the leap of faith like the car fanatics have done on page 32, remember, it is less daunting to make a life-changing decision when you have an interest in the sector. Milestones fl y by when you enjoy yourself.


After last month’s British Franchise Exhibition in Manchester, I’m sure many of you are pondering over the idea of throwing caution to the wind, running your own franchise and igniting your career. To that I say, let’s raise a glass: a glass to this time next year. Enjoy!
