Angela in Chorley & Leyland joined Raring2go! in Summer 2011. Raring2go! asked her how she is getting on...
"I’m really pleased I decided to take on a Raring2go! Franchise. It was a massive leap of faith, but has definitely been the right decision for me.
Coming from a sales background, I feel the brand is superb, something that I can build on and it’s going from strength to strength.
I’ve learnt so much...how to create my magazine, writing Editorial, researching what’s on for families in the area...it’s just so different to my previous life, but really rewarding!
The Raring2go! team from H/Q are really supportive, and always at hand to give me advice and ongoing training, which means that I’m learning new skills all the time.
So did I make the right choice to buy a Raring2go! Franchise- yes absolutely!"
