Prior to starting his franchise, Glenn worked as a self-employed taxi driver in London, and before that as a self-employed carpenter.
“I’ve always been comfortable being self-employed and I strongly believe that the harder you work the more you will get out,” explains Glenn. “Being a taxi driver in London was stressful. Every time I jumped into the cab, I couldn’t wait to finish my shift and get home. I was looking for a career change, but I wanted something that would not only improve my finances but also my health. It needed to be profitable, interesting and easy to learn. After speaking to some current franchisees, and learning about the support offered by Green Man Lawn Care, I knew it was the path that I wanted to take.”
“I’ve only been a franchisee for a few months (started March 2016), but I’ve already sold my cab and I’m feeling so much healthier. I’m seeing my wife and kids a lot more and I have the flexibility to plan time with my family around making some great money. Oh, and my lawn is already the best in the street!”
