Dominic Stone – Tutor Doctor, Chorley, Lancashire
Dominic knew he needed some guidance and support to gain business acumen but wanted a structure that had a proven track record with a good chance of success. With advice from his family members and conducting his own research Dominic discovered the world of franchising and came across the Tutor Doctor franchise opportunity.
“Tutor Doctor was a perfect match in terms of the philosophy I was looking for. It is a valuable, useful service that really works! I could develop and learn within the business but also have the belief in its potential success from day one.
I felt I had a lot in common with existing franchisees who were open and enthusiastic about the business and I could see myself being part of this wider ‘family’. Ultimately, the support available, alongside the freedom of developing my own business gave me the best of both worlds.” says Dominic.
Having completed the training Dominic was confident when starting the business. “The weeks training in Toronto basically gave me everything I needed to start up my business on my return. It was relaxed, informative and inspiring. I can pick up the phone or write an email and get a response fairly immediately despite time differences. There are clearly phased stages from the support to set-up, develop and then expand my business. The network of fellow Tutor Doctor franchisees are always on hand, supportive and helpful.”
The business is set to be family run with Dominic’s father investing in the business at the outset and currently owns shares, however Dominic is hoping he will be able to recoup this in the next few years. Mrs Stone also helps out with her role increasing as her own commitments in her own business change and Dominic’s grow. “There is room for flexibility here. Her strengths should aid my weaker areas and vice versa.”
Dominic always requests feedback from his customers which is almost always positive and sometime revelatory. The support his business provides can change attitudes to challenges, subjects and education in general which potentially changes the lives of both the learner and their families for the better. “A highlight was my first customer, the first really positive response from the effect of the tuition. I would like my business to become the number one tuition business in Lancashire for any age and subject of learner and their family.”
“For anyone looking to start their own franchise business, as a teacher of course, I would say do your homework; research, conduct drawn out validations, find out the nuts and bolts of the business and then trust your gut instinct as to whether it feels right for your personality and life goals.”
GREAT! WHAT'S MY NEXT STEP?
