Ed’s Garden Business – Ali’s Update
Ed’s Garden Business in Cambridge north was recently born when Ali McCormick joined our team. Ali’s training is now complete. His van is beautifully branded. And he is most definitely in business!
We caught up with Ali and asked him how things are going for him in his early days with Ed’s.
This is what Ali had to say…
Ed’s Garden Business – Ali’s update….
” The last month or so has definitely been a whirlwind. However, in a really positive way. Coming from a job that I was struggling to be enthused about, the feeling of starting something new is like a breath of fresh air. I feel energised. I feel excited about the day ahead. It is great to get up in the morning looking forward to the working day ahead.”
” I believe that a great thing about starting up with a strong franchise behind you is that you have all the excitement without the worry . I have support from people who really know what they are doing. Ed’s has underpinned the start-ups of successful businesses time and again. That’s massively reassuring when you are in what is uncharted territory for you.”
“Firstly, my training has been really excellent. I have been very well prepared for getting started with my business. I consider myself lucky to have had a structured training programme which was specifically tailored to me. In addition to the office element, it’s been great going out with Ed’s business owners to do the more practical elements of my training. Also, I’m so lucky to have a great neighbour in Richard, who runs his Ed’s business in St Ives. Richard is always on hand to answer any questions I have. That relationship is another safety net for me. In conclusion, I have felt very supported throughout and I know that my training will be just as good going forward.”
Setting my wheels in motion…
“Firstly I have already started delivering services and I am really enjoying the work. Secondly, it’s interesting getting to meet different customers. Thirdly, the day is varied and busy, which I love. In conclusion, working outdoors in a healthy and physical job that definitely helps you to sleep well at night. As does knowing you are in very capable hands!”
We look forward to giving future updates on how Ali’s business develops.
