Clare Luke, Popstars Academy franchise owner shares her experience
Clare always had an idea that one day she would like to work for herself as she was a very self driven and self motivated individual. However, she never had a clear idea on what type of work she would like to manage and where to begin from. She heard about franchising and thought that this might be the best way to run her own business.
Clare started to research franchise opportunities and what was involved with franchising and the concept of Popstars Academy instantly appealed her. She said that the concept was just perfect and that the branding was appealing and eye catching as well. Before she decided to investigate franchising, Clare worked in HR for 15 years, within large private organisations. During her time in the HR field, she continued her education by studying a Masters degree in Strategic Human Resource Management.
As she entered the world of franchising, she found that the training given to her was really beneficial. At the beginning of the relationship, she received a comprehensive Induction Programme along with supportive material and the majority of her training was completed face to face.
Since launching her business, the Head Office of the company has always been available to provide the required guidance and support. She also receives routine review meetings, which allow her to review her progress and to focus on her future developments.
