She’s Focused – Sally Greenwood
Third in my blog series, “She’s Focused” is Sally Greenwood who is a franchisee, with Western Provident Association (WPA) with her husband
When did you start your business and what was your inspiration for doing so?
December 2008. My husband was made redundant in 2007 and I was able to get a 1 year career break from my Accountancy job which enabled us to go travelling for a year. While we were away we decided we didn’t want t o go back to Corporate life and wanted to work for ourselves and a franchise seemed a good option. We researched a lot of different ones but chose WPA as it stood out by far from the others.
