Pritesh Patel always had big ambitions. At university he considered trading in his studies to start his own business, eager to begin forging a career and taking control of his future. Now, as an ERA franchise partner, he has seen these ambitions realised.
"It’s true. I considered dropping out and starting a business. I had actually seen ERA in a franchise magazine around this time. In the end, I decided to finish my studies, but what I had read about ERA always stuck in my mind."
"I was spending more and more time away from my family. I would often have to work late nights and weekends when I should have been with them. The time was right for me to take more control. That’s when I started thinking about ERA again."
"It wasn’t that I chose a franchise over starting my own business; it was more to do with the fact that I really liked the ERA business. Everything about it was geared towards my goals: I could control my own workload, earn a very good income, and work alongside some very successful professionals – people who could help me achieve their kind of success."
"The network is hugely supportive – after all, it’s in all our interests to help each other. It also means you have so much expertise to call on, you can expand your expertise across a huge variety of cost categories. And that, ultimately, means more clients."
"The ERA opportunity has allowed me to realise my goals – both in work and in life. It just goes to show that my instincts when I was at university were correct. For anyone who wants to achieve great success on their own terms, I would definitely recommend they investigate ERA."
Keith McGregor has signed more clients than any ERA franchisee in 2018.
