“From Glasgow to Southport to Oscar - major life-changing experiences re-established my decision to work for myself. A taste of self-employment, with partners, in a previous life confirmed that franchising was now my best option. To be part of a recognised national company that would allow me to work for myself and have my own freedom of choice was the ideal route to explore.
“My experiences of self-employment in the motor trade and dry cleaning services opened various windows of opportunity when searching for a franchise business. The franchise website gave me a very good introduction to my main interest but I was completely put off the scent when discovering Oscar and pets. Here was a proven product that offered a supportive and caring service with repeat business.
“I am now almost a year into my business with time to reflect back to the start which saw me with a blank sheet of paper and not one single customer. With Oscar Head Office supporting me I went out morning, noon and night, knocking on doors and making contact with pet owners. Within six months I had established 179 customers – I had a good product, which has proved itself time and time again. While satisfying a number of healthy pets I’ve had great success in helping dogs with tummy and skin problems. To have a vet call me to help a dog with a long-term problem and then solve it, saving the client ongoing vet bills, gave me just the boost I needed to confirm that, at last, I was running a business that brought me more rewards than just earning a living.
“I believe that the best way to achieve success and reach a good standard of living is to enjoy your work!”
