“Why did I want to change my life? There were a number of reasons but as a single mum of five, having spent a thirty year career in sales working long hours and sometimes away from home it was a question of how much longer could I continue? Although, selling is my background I did not always believe in the product or service that I was expected to promote. Until the day that I started selling marketing displays to the franchisors where I discovered OSCAR, a company that stood out from the rest. I followed through to find establish a well-supported company that presented a friendly, high standard of professionalism and quality products.
“Something clicked, I knew instantly that we had common ground. Of course, Smudge, my soft-coated Wheaten Terrier would love OSCAR; but to work from home with hours to suit allows me quality time for my three of children, who are still with me. We can now share and enjoy the fruits of my labour, which is something we all deserve.
“Working in the competitive sales market and in an area where the security of long-term employment might be under threat I was unsure of my future? I needed to be in control of my own destiny and the only person to offer true reliability was me - along with the security of OSCAR.
“There have been a few life-changing decisions made during the process of reaching my starting date, having spent a considerable amount of time speaking to existing franchisees and attending meetings at OSCAR. In my time, I have developed territories and successfully established myself as a proven sales professional with good business skills. But this time I can move forward with a genuine product and service that will bring me a successful business and the reward of a family life balance, my dream of eventually retiring to France and Smudge, who never fails to give me a goodnight kiss!”
