Former soldier found business at The Franchise Show and now a guest speaker

Former army captain Steve Gaskell has successfully transitioned from the services to civvy street through franchising. He is now a franchise partner with ActionCOACH, the world’s number one business coaching franchise.

Steve GaskellThe 47-year-old, from Newton Abbot, left his army career with the hope that he could spend more quality time with his family. Steve joined the army in 1985 and 22 years later became the Regimental Sergeant Major of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, ending his career as a commissioned captain.

Having served in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan, his final posting was as the welfare officer at Woolwich barracks in London, looking after 720 soldiers and 264 families. In the run up to leaving the army, Steve carried out 18 months of extensive research into what to do and kept coming back to ActionCOACH.

Steve explains: “I went to The Franchise Show at ExCel and met the ActionCOACH team and things fell into place. I left the army in August 2013 and began training with ActionCOACH in September. I had done some really cool courses in the military, attempting SAS selection was by far the hardest, most challenging and best. ActionCOACH training came a close second – it was life changing!”

In just 18 months, Steve’s business has helped him achieve great things. He won the inaugural Nationwide Resettlement Awards as Franchisee of the Year 2015, beating off many other entrants and two other worthy finalists. The business that he initially started from home has recently moved into spacious offices where he can offer one-to-one coaching or group sessions. “The business has just gone from strength to strength. Sometimes I have to pinch myself. It’s been hard work but I am proud of what has been achieved and we have some exciting plans for 2016.”

“I have a very clear vision of where my business will be in 5 years and what it will look like. On a daily basis I have one simple rule: always be working on the most valuable and profitable activity at that point in time.”

It’s not surprising to hear that Steve has a very regimented approach to operating and growing his business! He now employs a business manager and a business development manager, who have helped him to leverage his time dramatically and allows him to add real value when coaching his clients. In fact, Steve expects his business to grow to the level where he will need to employ an additional business coach later in 2016.

Whilst all of this business success is fantastic, the most important thing for Steve was to spend more quality time with his family after so many years of active duty with the army.

“It sounds like a cliche but none of this would have been possible without my wife’s unbelievable support. Sam has been my rock, looking after our family during my absence on deployment, always placing her needs second and always there for me and the kids. My office is now very close to home and I’m don’t have to miss out on family events. My son is learning the ropes in the business and my daughter has plans to follow my footsteps into the armed forces.”

This year Steve is speaking at the show to help others understand what it’s like to be a franchise partner and how to choose the right franchise for them.
