A new life at 40 - Steve F's gardening business - Walton-on-Thames and surrounding area
Maybe life does begin at 40. At 39, my career as a salesman in the motor industry was going nowhere. I loved gardening so I invested in an Ed's Garden Maintenance franchise.I liked the relatively low start-up costs and was given support in accountancy, marketing, business management and training.Within a year, I exceeded all my expectations. Five years later I have 70 regular customers and two staff and can afford to take time out to be a volunteer coach at a children's cricket academy.I've just signed up for my second five-year term with Ed's and my business supports the whole family, so my wife is considering leaving her job.
