Get Ahead VA is very proud to have branches across the country, each run by one (or two!) Regional Directors. All of our RDs are ambitious, business-minded people who took advantage of Get Ahead VA’s exciting franchise opportunity, which allowed them to start their own business with the support of an established brand behind them.
There are so many reasons to become a Get Ahead VA franchisee, and we’re always on the lookout for people who are interested in opening a new branch in their local area. Not sure whether you should take the plunge? Here are five brilliant benefits of opening a franchise with us!
1. Get off to a flying start
We provide you with everything you need to get your business off to the best start possible – that includes branding, training and a comprehensive business toolkit so you can get to know the Get Ahead VA model inside out. Of course, the business will be yours to own and run, but you will benefit from having the backing of an established, award-winning brand.
2. Scale up at your own pace
Your branch of Get Ahead VA is in your hands, which means you will have control over how quickly it grows. Within your territory, you can decide what direction you want to take the business in, how many clients you want to take on and how many virtual assistants you want to add to your team. It’s your business, so you call the shots!
3. Get support from the Get Ahead VA team
One of the biggest benefits of being a franchisee is that you won’t be alone. You will have the support of Rebecca Newenham, the founder of Get Ahead VA, as well as our other RDs, who have been through all those new-business teething problems before. Whatever you’re struggling with, the whole team is here to help you out.
4. Achieve a healthy work–life balance
Being a Get Ahead VA Regional Director means you have the power to set your own hours and build your work around your home life – not the other way around. The role is home-based and flexible, and many of our RDs fit their work around school runs, dog walks and all-important family time.
5. Fulfil a dream
So many of our RDs dreamed of owning their own business, and saw Get Ahead VA as the best way to turn this dream into a reality. If you’ve also dreamed of being a business owner, but don’t really want to start from scratch, then this could be the right opportunity for you!
