Case Study: Keith Copestake
Keith Copestake is proof of the outstanding earning potential of a successful ERA consultancy, consecutively earning an average six figure salary for each year that he has been a franchise partner. In 2013, Keith was the highest earner of the ERA network with an exceptional annual earning of £433,847.
Keith joined ERA in 2006 with over 25 years experience in the office products and print industry. His last role was a Director of the world’s largest office products and IT consumables company. Keith’s career started out in print production before moving on to a marketing role, then into sales of print and office products responsible for pan European and Global contracts.
Based in Andover, Hampshire, Keith's successful procurement practice is currently run from serviced offices near to his home. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, playing golf and watching his favourite football team, Aston Villa.
Since joining ERA, Keith has used his extensive knowledge of the office supplies and print industry to successfully uncover over £2.5million worth of savings for his delighted clients in the last three years alone.
"When I decided to leave employment, the idea of franchising appealed to me because I felt it was a more viable way of starting successful business. Following a tried and trusted model means less risk. I was attracted to the ERA model because I wanted a white collar opportunity that suited the management skills I had built over a long career. I was familiar with the concept and could see how it works in practice and why it was a worthwhile investment."
Keith took the plunge into self employment by pursuing the ERA franchise opportunity and hasn't looked back. Now he enjoys an enviable work-life balance, allowing him to take multiple trips a year and a property in Spain which he bought from a salary most people only dream of.
"Being my own boss gives me the control to plan my work schedule. I am a very keen golfer and have had a lot more time to play in Spain. I can fly over to my Spanish office and enjoy the sunshine whilst working. I bought the property in 2013 and I'm hoping to spend between three and four months of the year there on working holidays. Since buying my Finca in Spain I'm learning Spanish and how to cook traditional Spanish food and drink the wine."
