What was Michelle’s initial situation? 
As a working mother, Michelle was given the opportunity to take voluntary redundancy and did so in order to rebalance her work and family life. 
Michelle’s career was very important to her, but she knew she wanted a better work/life balance so looked for opportunities to work for herself. 
She came across the opportunity to own a franchise with Pink Spaghetti and liked the idea of working for herself whilst having the support of a franchisee network. 
How did she think Pink Spaghetti would solve this? 
Michelle saw Pink Spaghetti as a good way of stepping out of the public sector into a new venture and a more flexible way of living. 
She liked the idea that the “package” was already branded and ready to market and she wanted to be part of a virtual team for support rather than working alone. 
She liked the autonomy that such a franchise would bring. She believed that she would enhance her skills and productivity quicker than working alone, gaining knowledge about the tools that have been tried and tested already within the business through the start up training. 
She was also reassured to know that there was an option to get advice and cover for emergencies. 
What was the outcome? 
Michelle Collins started her franchise with Pink Spaghetti in 2015. 
Michelle says: 
“Since starting my Pink Spaghetti Franchise my life has changed somewhat. Obviously as my children have got older they need taxi services more frequently! The flexibility that I have means that I don’t have to miss athletics morning or taking them to a show, dentist appointments etc, I have that flexibility. Of course sometimes I use it to pop to the gym myself! 
Having a Pink Spaghetti Franchise has enabled me to organise myself in a better way. My husband has a very busy job he works late and long hours, I’m not saying I don’t work the hours myself, but it has enabled us to have flexibility and run things the way I want to.”
