Lisa Ellis Back
Lisa Ellis has been with The Financial Management Centre for over 6 years now, after setting up her franchise in High Wycombe back in 2010.
Before joining TFMC, Lisa worked part-time as a Finance Manager at a well-known retail company but found that it was both inflexible and poorly paid. She also had two young children that she wanted to be able to make time for and failed to find this in any of the jobs she looked at. Lisa began to consider setting up a business of her own, but found the prospect of having to set up everything from scratch quite daunting and worried about how she would find clients. Lisa then began to look into franchising and after careful consideration she decided upon TFMC.
Being part of an established brand gives you a flying start when first setting up your business. Lisa was provided with all the training and resources she needed to get started and quickly began acquiring clients.
“Buying a franchise is a brilliant way of being able to be part of an established brand, amongst people that have already tried and tested the model and have been successful. The help you get from the franchisor and the existing franchisees is brilliant and you are helped and guided along the way.”
“The support we receive from Stuart and the team is second to none and I couldn’t have grown my business without their support and advice.”
Within her first 6 months she had picked up a number of clients and had begun taking on a team of her own towards the end of year 1. Being part of a trusted and reputable brand allowed Lisa to attract clients a lot easier than if she had of started up on her own. Lisa took advantage of all the resources that were available to her and has turned her business into a real success. The sky is the limit for Lisa, and we’re excited to see what her future at TFMC has in store for her.
