Steve Beaumont, aged only 26 and one of Autosmart’s youngest ever new starters has recently started trading in the Alfreton and Derby Dales area. Steve tells us “I had spent the last 7 years working for a civil engineering firm. Throughout my career I have always strived to achieve the best and I have always known that I wanted to put all my energy into a business where I can reap the rewards of my success. I had been looking round for a suitable opportunity for a couple of months when I found an on-line advert for an Autosmart franchise available in the Derby Dales. I already knew of Autosmart, as my hobby is motorsports and cars are my passion. It’s early days, but I’m thriving off the challenge of growing my business and can really see how I am going to build a successful and secure future for myself”.. Geoff Easton is selling the range of vehicle cleaning products in the Winchester area. “I had worked as a mechanical fitter in the water industry. I really enjoyed my job, but knew that from running my own photographic processing business that the grass was greener being self-employed. After attending a “discovery day” at the Autosmart head office, I quickly realised that this was too good an opportunity to miss out on. It’s all still very new, but I’m really enjoying working for myself. The support from Autosmart is fantastic - I’m absolutely certain that I made the correct decision.” Ever since Danny Palmer first entered the job market, he has known that some day he wanted to be his own boss. He spent 19 years working in the food industry in London as a Sales Manager and for the last couple of years had been on the look-out for an exciting new business opportunity. His father saw an advert in the local Dorset newspaper for an Autosmart franchise. Danny had been looking to move closer to his family for some time and saw the Autosmart franchise as the perfect opportunity. Danny is Autosmart’s most recent new starter and is trading in and around Dorchester and Weymouth.
