Janet Withell – Utility Warehouse Discount Club
Your Name: Janet Withell
Company name and nature of business:
Utility Warehouse Discount Club – We help households and small businesses shrink their household bills.
When did you start your business?
What type of jobs did you have before you started your business?
I’m a qualified nurse and also work as a Medical Rehab Manager.
How does your business fit around your family life?
As this is so flexible I can work as many or as few hours as I want so I’m always there for my family when they need me.
What has been the most challenging part about running your business?
It’s easy to do but as there’s no boss, it’s also easy not to do.
How has your business grown since it started?
As this is a referral business and we don’t rely on advertising, our business is always increasing by word of mouth; satisfied customers passing our details on.
What advice would you give to someone else wanting to start their own business?
Make sure it is all above board and ethical as we’ve been stung by schemes in the past which are not. Utility Warehouse is always shown in the Which magazine, giving the company and the products independent credibility, and it is listed on the London Stock Exchange.
Do you have any tips for success?
Keep on, keeping on and never give up.
