Day in the life
Veteran franchisee James Tipton explains: “My daily routine consists of scheduling jobs in our board management system SignMaster and loading the van up the night before.
“I like to leave my house around 7-8am and start working my way through the scheduled job list, marking each job as complete as I go.
“I also check SignMaster again late morning to see if there are any jobs for the next day that I can pick up while on the road. This is all done via the SignMaster app, so it’s easy to manage my business on the go and increases my productivity.
“If I need any support throughout the day, I give head office a call. There’s always someone available to assist with queries and sales support. “When I get home, I respond to any emails I haven’t picked up during the day, then plan my route and load the van for the next day. I’m usually finished by 4 or 5pm.
“For me, the biggest highlight of being my own boss is having total control of my work-life balance. I work Monday to Friday and as long as my work is completed and my customers are happy, I have flexibility to adjust my hours to suit my needs.”
If you’re considering franchising and would like the reassurance of a proven business model, the Agency Express van-based opportunity could be a perfect match for you.
No previous experience or qualifications are required, just self-motivation and a willingness to succeed.
