Sarah's gardening business
Sarah ran her business from January 2007 to 2012, and successfully grew her business into a multi employee and vehicle business. This was her profile before selling her business on. "Starting with Ed's was a wonderful opportunity to break into a competitive industry and take control of my earnings. It also reduced the risk of starting on my own as a rather young and inexperienced 23 year old, whilst still giving me the flexibility to develop my own angle on the business and drive growth in the direction I wanted to go. One of my initial concerns was about coping physically with what is a very demanding manual job. The job is all about investing in quality tools and taking your time however, and this gives me complete reliability to all my maintenance customers. I now have a small team of three employees, with a part timer who we can call on during the busiest spells. I have concentrated on expanding the business sustainably, maintaining a personal relationship with my clients, and trying to provide the same level of service they have come to expect as we grow as a team. Happy customers make it all worthwhile, and my favourite part of this job is when a customer says to me "You've transformed my garden, I love it!" There's no better incentive to keep on doing what we do.'.

I'm now running my Ed's business in Christchurch and I'm just as happy and motivated as I was when I started almost seven years ago. ..
Well, here I am coming up to my 10th anniversary as an Ed's Operator. My business and my children have certainly grown a lot but one thing stays the same - I still love cricket and, with Ed's, I've had the freedom to develop my youth cricket coaching in parallel with growing my Ed's business. I've r..

She then bought another established Ed's business and added value to that. She sold that business and has now gone off to pu..
