Living the Millionaire Lifestyle
Cash Generator franchise owner, Nick Bourne, is now living a millionaire lifestyle
As an awarding winning franchise owner, Nick has worked hard to grow his business, which now incorporates three stores in the south, and he is certainly reaping the rewards.
From driving an array of sports cars, spending time on his boat, and splitting his time between a penthouse apartment and luxurious detached home, Nick is a millionaire in his own right.
Forward thinking, Nick started to consider his career options 10 years ago while he was working as a Police Community Support Officer for the Dorset forces. He wanted to set up his own business, be his own boss and more importantly, invest in a profitable future that would change his life.
Driven by enthusiasm for his career, Nick researched numerous opportunities and came across the national franchise Cash Generator.
Nick comments: "After many years of research while working as a Police Community Support Officer, I decided it was time to embark upon a fresh and exciting career. I wanted a challenge and something that would provide a profitable investment opportunity.
"After looking into several franchises, Cash Generator really stood out. It was a solid business with a multi income stream which performs well despite fluctuations in the economic climate.
"With no previous background in retail I was confident I could do well, particularly with the extensive training Cash Generator provides. This was integral to my decision to become a Cash Generator franchise owner, as it was the first time I had set up my own business and I wanted advice and guidance readily available."
Nick was not disappointed, and during his eight week NVQ approved training, he and the Cash Generator team considered locations in the south for his first store.
"I was keen to open up in the coastal town of Weymouth as I believed a Cash Generator store would thrive in the town centre. With £60,000 to invest, I wanted to ensure my first store was a huge success, so I worked long hours everyday until I had exceeded my initial goals."
Nick's hard work and dedication has paid off and resulted in him beating his third year sales targets in his first year. He then went on to double the sales figures in the second year.
With Weymouth a success, two years later, in August 2008, Nick acquired his second store in Yeovil. His most recent business move was just three months ago when he opened his third store in Southampton.
With three profitable stores under his belt, Nick has his sights firmly set on the future as he plans to open two further stores in two years, aiming for all stores to report over a £1 million turnover each.
Commenting on his success, Nick says: "Investing in Cash Generator has opened many new doors and enabled me to enrich my personal life. I now live a millionaire lifestyle and own a number of luxury items including a 36ft boat, an Aston Martin and a penthouse apartment."
