SmartPA: Disruptive Technology and Innovation
Case Study: Lisa McPherson (Inverness)
Lisa McPherson, a 30 year old mother from Inverness, aspired to having freedom and independence of running her own business, but also the security and peace of mind of a robust business infrastructure to lean, a support and advice mechanism and more importantly an opportunity to provide her and family a greater income
Lisa was looking for a way to combine working from home with a career that made use of her considerable administrative and business support skills. Being cautious, she didn’t want the risks of starting up a business completely from scratch.
Taking the Plunge
After an initial period of intense market research, Lisa came across the SmartPA Franchise opportunity. Enticed by the SmartPA “Business-in-a-Box”, ensuring that all costs of starting a business were condensed into a manageable, low entry point which mitigates risk on day one.
Fundamental elements within the SmartPA proposition that key to Lisa’s final decision process were:
- Flexible working
- Business in a box
- Holiday Plan – which supports growth and allows for unforeseen circumstances.
- Smart DNA - knowledge, training and support which form the basis of the training programme for all franchisees
“I could not have afforded to set this business up by myself. When you consider what I have been provided for my £2500 investment, The detailed training, CRM system, on-going business support, it would have taken me into a large amount of debt before even starting. The key thing for me though, is being part of a team which I just thrive on,” Lisa McPherson
