Eight years on as an ActionCOACH in her own right, Mandy has never looked back.
Mandy Hildred, 58, franchise partner in Yorkshire since February 2006
Working as business manager for a local charity in 2005, Mandy Hildred had called in ActionCOACH to inject some dynamism into an organisation which was stagnating. She found the experience so enjoyable that when her contract was up with the - newly successful - charity she joined the team. Eight years on as an ActionCOACH in her own right, Mandy has never looked back.
“Within the first few months I had half a dozen clients, and by the end of the first year I’d more than exceeded my expectations with income”, she says.
“Like any company owner the biggest challenge is about building the business and delivering at the same time. I’ve had the support to be able to do that and with a business partner who shares my vision, I’m now building a team of coaches, working with strategic partnerships such as accountants and banks with the aim of expanding the one to one and group coaching programmes, and branching out into north and east Yorkshire.”
“I say to anyone thinking of joining a business franchise such as this, if you spend a couple of days talking to an ActionCOACH you’ll be better able to make the right decision - for both your head and your heart.”
