Women involved at the management level in business are very important to maintaining a balance in the business they are involved in. Women tend to have a different perspective on how businesses should run and keep things running smoothly at all levels.
I have found that working in Cartridge World at a management level has afforded me a certain amount of independence in both my work and personal life.
In this day and age, a majority of women are in the workforce and working in all aspects of the business. The Daily Mercury reported that 42% of businesses in the region were owned by women.
Operating our own franchise has given us the opportunity to “call the shots” and allows us the flexibility to still be hands-on parents and grandparents.
We have been owners of Cartridge World Moonah since 2006. Cartridge World has allowed us the flexibility to be able to fully engage with our own business and still be present for our children’s needs through those years.
We love our little business and now our daughter Kelsey is working with us two days a week which is just awesome.
I have been the owner of Cartridge World Batemans Bay along with my husband Bruce for 5 years now.
We have grown the business since taking over from the previous owners and also moved the shop to a better location. We have regular customers who appreciate our service and they often recommend us to their friends and colleagues.
I’ve been a Cartridge World franchise for 20 years, I still love the way we help the environment while saving people money. Seeing our customers leave the store with a smile on their faces is very rewarding.
Managing family and business has been a bit of a struggle at times but there is usually a way around it, like a sick child on a stretcher in the office.
Owning my own business enables me to create a safe and happy workplace for myself, staff and customers and the flexibility to source quality products. If I look after my staff they look after my customers which means money in the bank.
Having a sense of balance in both business and family is paramount to any woman as it enables her to be in harmony with life.
Cartridge World allows you the freedom to run your business in your own way which in turn allows you independence and enables you to easily manage business and family life.
I have raised a 19 yo daughter during my time with Cartridge World since I opened in 2001 because I had the flexibility but also the drive and passion to make it work
I’m passionate about Customer Service, don’t mind getting my hands dirty fixing printers, & make sure I offer our customers the best solution for their printing needs, which I wouldn’t be able to do without my team.
I have made wonderful new friends since we purchased this store. Some have been supporting this store for more than 12 years.
