November 2003 we watched a 15 minute video which was leant to us
via a friend. We saw the power of this opportunity immediately and
decided there and then to join the business; It's been the best
decision we’ve ever made. At the time we were both in full
time employment, Grahame as a Development Manager for a company
that designed medical equipment and Gail as a sales person for Glass's
Guide; so we started the business, like most people, part time alongside
our full time jobs.
After eighteen months Gail gave up her job to become a full time
mum, and worked The Utility Warehouse business around our daughter
Téah. At the end of her maternity period, the business had
grown enough to allow her to stay at home, rather than having to
return to her job, and so fulfilled an ambition for her to be able
to spend time with our daughter rather than have someone else look
after her in her early years. In February 2008 the business had
grown sufficiently to allow Grahame too, to give up his full time
job, and join Gail full time in the business. This is now all we
When your bills are met every month by 'residual income', it allows
you to make choices that would otherwise not be available to you.
This year we've been able to take 21 weeks holiday rather than the
21 days we were allowed when we were employed and, best of all,
whilst we've been on holiday, our business has grown by approximately
2% per month.
It's not all about money though. When Gail joined this business
she was so shy that she was scared to even go on the getting started
training. Eight years later she’s one of the company trainers
at the front of the room and they now have problems keeping her
quite! (Listen to her full story under the ‘presentations’
tab). The personal development side of this business is fantastic
and we've learnt so much that has helped us not only with our business,
but also in every aspect of our lives.
During our time in the business we have been given two free BMW
Mini's, three free luxury holidays, thousands of share options,
piggy bonds and loads more. And they call this work?
