ScaleUp Radio

Sep 12, 2022

On this week’s episode of ScaleUp Radio, I’m talking to Sara Marrett from The HR Department.


Sara spoke to us back in March of 2020 as part of panel discussion talking around the pandemic - and the potential effect it could have on business owners.


This time, though, Sara’s returned to talk more about her own business and being a business owner herself, as part of The HR Department franchise, covering Worcestershire.


Sara grew dissatisfied with corporate life, and had a desire to do better - which crystallised in 2014 when she became a franchisee with The HR Department.


Sara has built up a number of years experience, running her own business and, of course, working with other businesses, and we cover as much as we can during our  conversation, including:


 - The benefits of working within a franchise, as opposed to starting your own business from scratch

 -  The power of the phrase ‘People Buy From People’. Don’t rely on others to sell your business or services for you; so much of it is down to you.

 -  A successful business doesn’t need to have a massive team, or bringing in millions of pounds. Success is whatever you want it to be


I thought that it was definitely worth talking a little more about the People side of your scale up journey with Sara, because that is her area of expertise - and there’s definitely plenty in this episode for you to takeaway.
