Gardening Business in Ramsgate

Gardening Business in Ramsgate – How has Mark’s business taken off?

Gardening Business in Ramsgate – The Background

Mark Stanton joined Ed’s Garden Services in January 2019.  He joined Ed’s to set up his own gardening business in Ramsgate, Kent. Mark joined Ed’s in search of career fulfilment by doing something he loved, far away from the Corporate world. It is true that he was also looking for a healthier lifestyle. This meant resetting the balance in his life.  Mark felt that it was important to him to reclaim the thrill of doing a job that he loved.

At Ed’s it is really important to us that Business Owners can achieve their goals.  However, this applies not only to the financial goals.  Indeed, the lifestyle ones are hugely important to us too.

Recently we had a catch up with Mark and asked him for some honest feedback on how his Ed’s venture is panning out for him so far.

Over to Mark…

“Well, I can honestly say that my Ed’s experience has significantly exceeded my expectations. I knew that I very much enjoyed gardening and I knew that Ed’s was a really professional Franchise business.  Taking both factors into account, I was reassured that Ed’s would probably work out well enough for me.”

My Gardening Business in Ramsgate’s success…

“However, what I didn’t really expect was the scope of the opportunity to build a business. There has been so much work available to me since I started that I have been able to build very strong foundations in my business much earlier than I thought was realistic.  The process my business has made is nothing short of amazing.  It’s no coincidence that the level of support I’ve got from the Ed’s team has been excellent. I knew I would be supported but I really didn’t expect it to be so personal and guiding. You just get the feeling that everyone is rooting for you to succeed right from the start. That is incredibly reassuring when you are in the early days of a brand new business.”

My fulfilment…

“Another thing I underestimated was the general sense of wellbeing and freedom I get from this career. I love the fact that I can shape my days how I want, doing something I love and don’t waste time on long commutes. One particular day stands out in the summer when I was driving along the coast road to another good job, watching the sun glistening on the water thinking “How could work really be any better than this! If I had to put how I feel about my job on the happiness barometer, it would honestly be off the scale.”  

My health and wellbeing…

“My business figures are looking really good but the other big bonus is that my figure is looking much better too! I’m already much trimmer than I have been in years and my health is massively improved as well. This is factual as I had a recent health MOT and absolutely everything was way better.”

My family’s take on it…

“And last but not least, my wife is just as delighted as I am with my Ed’s venture. I had been so stressed at work before Ed’s and she had been very keen for me to do something which would make me healthier and happier. She wholeheartedly agrees that Ed’s has certainly done that for me! My long commute is a thing of the past. Consequently, we have much more quality time together.  It’s still a bit of a novelty me actually being home at a decent time in the evening.  Even the dog is happier as I can pop home to have lunch some days!”
