What does being a Franchise Partner mean to me? Well, first thing, nobody can ever fire me. Secondly, I set my own upper level of how successful I want to be, how much money I want to make, and what kind of stability I can provide for my family. That's what it's all about.
There is so much potential with this business. The industry is so fragmented and we provide a level of service that others don’t. It’s also very gratifying to be in charge of your own future. At corporate jobs, they restructure to benefit the higher-ups without thinking about the employee. As a franchise owner, I never have to worry about that again.
If you're looking to start your own business but don't want to spend a lot or take out a loan, this is by far the best opportunity. The concept is smart, simple and scalable.
I’m able to schedule my time around my family. I’m able to pick up from school. I’m a working mom, but a working mom that still gets to have time with her kids. For me, that's what living the dream looks like.
What I would say to someone considering being an DAE franchise partner is, this is absolutely the right way to tackle this sector right now. So far DAE have been great. We're at the early stage but in terms of the support that's there, it's been first class. The really interesting thing about partnering with DAE is that you get access to all of the different brands. It works better for a broader range of business, but also it appeals to a broad range of industries.
The purpose and values really matter. Finally...a company that I can do good [with] and make money at the same time.
There's multiple reasons I chose this franchise. I wanted to have a business that provided me a lifestyle, not a job, a business that provided me time with my family.
