Why Running A Franchise Part-Time Doesn’t Mean Having Less Ambition

After a 20 year corporate career, Jenifer was self-described as burnt out by the lifestyle. She came across The Travel Franchise by Not Just Travel and immediately saw how it could help her make a change.

“I’d just had enough of it,” she says. “But I didn’t want to work for anyone else. I was looking for something that I enjoyed doing or something that I was really interested in and travel was a natural fit for me.”

The Travel Franchise - Travel Agency BusinessInspired by adventurous grandparents, Jenifer has loved to travel ever since her university days.

“Back in the 1920s and 1930s, one of my grandfathers was going to work on the steam trains down in Argentina. And the other had travelled all around Switzerland, he’d lived in India and Africa. I saw all their photos and that inspired me a lot.”

She’s also a huge fan of getting off the beaten track and exploring new places and cultures.

“Cambodia for me is a big one, I travelled way back in 1997, long before it was even a backpackers destination. I love India – I’ve been there several times. And I spent a couple of months in Columbia and South America. I stayed with a local family, did Spanish language school, and then travelled all around.”

Jenifer was looking for something that would give her the option to enjoy more of her life, rather than have work dictate limited times she could go away or visit family.

Because she can run her travel business part-time, it gives Jenifer the perfect work-life balance she’s after. She has other commitments, including volunteering, and loves that she can now get away to see family and friends whenever she wants.

“My parents are in their late eighties and don’t live close to me. They’re a couple of hundred miles away. So if I need to rush off and see them, I can go do that. My sister lives in France and I had a really limited amount of time to be able to go over and see her. Now, if I want to go and stay with my sister, I can go do that. I can work while I’m away. So it just gives me a much more flexible lifestyle that I can make fit around what I want to do.”

But that doesn’t mean she’s lacking ambition.

Because there aren’t sales targets or a boss to answer to, Jenifer’s growing her travel franchise business at her own pace. And she’s making some brilliant holiday bookings with high values.

She’s focused on more unusual holidays, such as exotic walking trips, and has even booked a client on a unique type of luxury cruise. The client was an old friend who had seen that Jenifer had a travel business. When they randomly bumped into each other, they started talking about holidays.

“She was talking about going on a cruise with another friend and it came up that they’d both love to go and see some polar bears. I knew exactly what companies to speak to. I managed to secure a really good discount because of different offers – even though the trip came in at £40,000, they’re really happy with the booking.”

Far from still being burnt-out by life, Jenifer now has a rewarding lifestyle. And a big part of that is thanks to her new part-time travel business, with every day offering a new adventure.
