Marcus, our Ed’s Operator in Streatham, had high ambitions for his business when he joined Ed’s early this year. However, not even he thought he would be expanding his business overseas before the year was out!
Marcus told us all about his latest venture as follows…
“I’ve done quite a lot of work for a lovely customer with a stunning house. They have a beautiful garden and I absolutely love working in it. They have been very pleased with the results of my labours and are now one of my firm regular customers. I know they really appreciate my work and I get on very well with them.”
“However, I was stunned when they asked me if I would be prepared to do some gardening for them in France! It turns out that they have another lovely property in the Dordogne region of France. That garden needs a bit of care and they think I’m just the man for the job! They’ve offered me an all expenses paid trip there in springtime if I would be happy to go and sort things out for the season ahead. They even invited me to fly my family out and tag a few days holiday on to the end of it to explore the region. What an opportunity! I was really flattered that they were so happy with my work that they are prepared to go to those lengths.”
“Of course I said Yes and will manage my workload to fulfil my commitments to my other regular customers”
“So we are all good to go. All that remains is for me to brush up on my French. My tools are all very well maintained but, I have to admit, my French is just a little bit rusty!!”
