At We Love Pets, 74% of the franchisees are women, “it’s inspiring every day watching women take control of their working lives by stepping into business”- says Jo White, Founder.
We heard from a selection of these empowering women and it was truly insightful to hear their stories. One franchisee, Laura from Haywards Heath, said “I wanted to prove I was so much more than just a mum” and explained her struggles of wanting to own her own business alongside raising her two young children. “Owning my own business means I am able to be there for the school drop off and pick up. I don’t have to choose between work or family. I don’t have to miss out on spending time with my children due to being stuck in a 9-5 job. I don’t have to worry about finding alternative childcare, because I can be there and run my business. It’s the best of both worlds” – says Laura
The day was filled with passion, laughter and support from everyone. There were brilliant announcements and news from Head Office and the franchise has another action packed year ahead.
