Paul had thisto say in 2010, after trading his new LockRite business for just one month:
"I joined LockRite as a franchisee on 19thApril 2010 following a 20 year careerwith Barclays Bank. I’ve gotto say it is the best decision I have ever made. I just wish I had done it sooner. The induction and training was first class, technical and practical locksmith skills to accounts, business and marketing. The whole LockRite team are all so friendly, professional and supportive.
"I have been trading for 4 weeks now and have completed almost 30 jobs successfully. The income generated has by far exceeded my most optimistic expectations and most importantly, I am absolutely loving what I do. There is no better feeling than getting up in a morning, eagerly awaiting a new days work.”
Paul isstill going fromstrength to strength and has become a highly skilled and valuable business partner.
We caught up with Paul recently to get an update and he had this to say: “15 months since joining LockRite my businessis steadily growing and I am
generally busy most of the time. However I have only just scratched the surface in terms oflocal marketing and getting local contracts. I see this as a
big opportunity to grow in the next 12 months the dilemma is being too busy doing jobs to do effective marketing on a daily basisregularly.
"LockRite have definitely kept their word of providing regular account work. I enjoy a good return from contracts. I stated after 4 weeks of trading that I wish I’d done it sooner and that I loved being a lockie. I can honestly say that nothing has changed, it just gets better with experience and an improving skillset.
"I’m still learning something new every day and the variety of work keeps it interesting. Finally, I always knew thatstarting a business and learning a new trade at the same time would be very difficultif not impossible without the backing and support of LockRite. I stand by that 100%”
