The franchise owner for Lincoln has only been up running since May as a mobile sole trader but he is already thinking about taking on a fitter.
That’s because Dean Moore has spent most of this week fulfilling orders and installing blinds in customer’s houses – which is great news as he is obviously very busy. But he already recognises that while he’s fitting, he’s not selling.
Dean’s background is in sales and marketing and he, more than most, understands that devoting the lion’s share of his time to this is the right way to build a prosperous and profitable business.
As part of his training when he first joined Apollo Blinds, Dean became a skilled fitter and he is quickly getting to the fortunate position where he can take someone on to do the fitting, which will free him up to play to his strengths.
It’s a pattern we see time and again and definitely the right kind of headache to have for a new business.
