Running our own business has been a life-changing experience!
Philip &'Helen Mahon, Dream Doors, Norwich
After completing a comprehensive one-week training course, the couple launched their Norwich-based Dream Doors franchise in January 2007. 'Running our own business has been a life-changing experience!' says Helen. 'Philip and I work well as a team because we have defined roles within the business that draw on our existing skills. Philip oversees the operational side of the business and ensures the re-fit projects go smoothly, while I take care of the sales, marketing and paperwork.
'The benefit of running your own business is having complete control over your timetable - now Philip and I are able to comfortably juggle work with our family life- so one of us is always available to do the school run. It can be difficult keeping your work and private life separate as there is always something that needs doing- however we try to keep our Sundays free for family time. The fact we have moved the business into a showroom means we have not only physically distanced our working life from our private but we have also doubled our annual turnover.
