Regular followers of Get Ahead’s updates may have noticed that we’ve been diversifying our content recently. The team has collaborated to write and design two e-books, while our founder, Rebecca Newenham, has written her own book on franchising and flexibility, called Virtually Yours.
We’ve created the books not only because we have information to share, but also to showcase the skills and experience of our copywriters and graphic designers. We’ve noticed that e-book experience is in increasing demand, as more clients decide to make their knowledge available to their own business family.
You’ve fulfilled your dream of working for yourself and being your own boss. This is great news – we’re thrilled for you! But we also know that working alone can be tough. This applies to people in many professions, but particularly business coaches and life coaches, who give so much support to others that they sometimes neglect their own businesses.
In this blog, we look at ways to make working for yourself as fruitful and efficient as your business deserves.
The advantages of working for yourself
If you’re reading this, you might well be researching franchises before you choose one to commit to. That’s great to hear – we love it when someone new joins the Get Ahead family, but more importantly, we want you to find the franchise that’s the best fit for you.
One of the key advantages to buying a franchise is that you get to “work for yourself but not by yourself.” Get Ahead can back up that mantra with great results and franchisee feedback, but sadly, not all businesses can. When you’re researching franchises, it’s a good idea to look at what that means in practice. This means delving into how communication works at the business you’re considering, weighing up its effectiveness and deciding whether it would suit you.
In this blog, we look at how Get Ahead builds a strong communication network across the team of franchisees.
Get Ahead and business coaches share an ethos – we both exist to support businesses and help them thrive and grow. While a business coach will help you adopt the right mindset for success; Get Ahead will help you with the practical side of running a business.
In this blog, we look at why working with both a coach and a virtual expert might help you grow your business.
Business coaching – a tried and tested solution
Get Ahead has been supporting coaches for almost as long as we’ve been in business. Some of our most successful working relationships have been with life coaches, business coaches and personal branding experts.
In this blog, we look at why outsourcing is a great solution for coaches.
Why is Get Ahead a valuable resource for coaches?
Coaches, like other business owners, usually have a long to-do list. In addition to working with clients to help them find their strengths, we know that coaches also have to market their businesses, stay on top of invoicing, create resources, keep up with the filing and more.
Get Ahead’s owner, Rebecca Newenham, finished 2021 on a high. She’d won the Franchise Balance award from the British Franchise Association – well-deserved recognition for her work to promote a healthy work/life balance for her team. Get Ahead’s model is built on flexibility – we believe it’s not only a healthier approach to work but that it yields great results for our business too.
In this blog, we take a closer look at flexible working – could it be the solution you’re looking for?
