One Route to Business Ownership for Pritesh Patel

"The ERA opportunity has allowed me to realise my goals – both in work and in life"

Expense Reduction Analysts - Pritesh PatelPritesh 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.

Pritesh confirms:

"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."

After finishing his studies, before purchasing his own ERA business in 2006, Pritesh was employed as a Mortgage Advisor. A career move he found brought great success, but also great demands:

"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."

Unusually for someone who purchases a franchise, Pritesh never considered any other opportunities or thought about his own start-up, so convinced was he by the proven business model and support he was buying into with ERA.

"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."

And it didn’t take long for him to start reaping the rewards. In fact, just 18 months into owning his ERA business, Pritesh was joined by his wife to facilitate his growth plans. Now, seven years into his ERA ownership, he has exceeded all his goals and continues to grow. Something he puts down to all the support on offer:

"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."

But it’s not just the financial side of things that has improved. Pritesh now works on his own terms, giving him the flexibility to spend more time with his wife, daughter and son, and take the holidays he craved so much in his former career.  Pritesh concludes:

"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."
