Laura, Franchisee since 2021
“I’m confident that leaving my corporate role in New York to start my ERA franchise will give me the rewards, lifestyle and balance that I’m looking for. I love finding profits for my clients and my income is directly linked to my own efforts – that’s a great place to be.”
Pritesh, Franchisee since 2006
“I was in my late-20’s when I started. My wife joined me in the business a few years later and we are now a team of 7. We enjoy a dream work/life balance, make a great income and have that precious time for our family.”
Peter, franchisee since 2008
“I joined ERA over 10 years ago with the ambition to build a large consulting business. Today I employ more than 25 people. We’ve got ambitious targets to take our business from today’s 7-figure revenues to even higher levels.”
