My franchise story: From desk job to business leader

My franchise story: From desk job to business leader

Anoop Sekhon escaped an uninspiring 9-5 and now leads a more fulfilling life as a Bluebird Care franchisee

Oftentimes, a 9-5 job doesn’t provide any personal satisfaction. The work can be boring and without the right room for growth can feel like you’re stuck at a dead-end.

This was certainly the case for Anoop Sekhon, who found herself wondering if this is really what life is all about.

Encouragement
You won’t find Anoop at an uninspiring 9-5 nowadays. Spurred by discussions with her friends, she joined a network of over 200 franchisees at Bluebird Care.

Though they come from a variety of backgrounds, the franchisees at Bluebird Care share one common goal: the determination to develop a successful business working to a proven business model and the passion to provide the highest quality of home care and support in their territory.

In 2012, Anoop opened the Greenwich office, sharing the very same goal. She initially felt out of her depth in a sector she was unfamiliar with, but with award-winning support from the Bluebird Care team was provided with the knowledge and assurance to set up and manage a highly successful business in the care sector.

“She was provided with the knowledge and assurance to set up and manage a highly successful business in the care sector”

The experienced team provides continuous support to help franchisees tackle finance, business systems, IT, marketing and PR, field-based business development and, most importantly, compliance and quality assurance.

In Anoop’s case, the team was also instrumental in many other areas; they helped her raise capital, speak to banks, construct a business plan, register with a regulator and interview people for her business.

Confident 
In the present day, you’ll find Anoop confidently at the helm. As a Bluebird Care franchisee, you don’t just work in your business - you work on your business to make it thrive and prosper.

Anoop has found that she now leads a more fulfilled life with the support of her team. Over her career with Bluebird Care, she has enjoyed a better life balance, dedicating the time not just to business, but to other key areas that can often be neglected, such as exercise and all-important family.

Grow
What’s next for Anoop? She plans to continue to grow and expand with the Bluebird Care network and hopes to expand to other territories while building her existing businesses.

One of the key things she’s looking forward to is having more staff join her team; like most franchisees, she finds it rewarding to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

This is an especially important part of the care sector, which is all about making a genuine difference, not just to customers, but to the lives of their staff, who work tirelessly to provide high-quality care.
