After 10 years on the frontline as a Victoria police officer, Adam Bartel decided upon a career change with a focus on lifestyle. After assessing his options Adam decided that a career in digital communications was for him. With a passion for technology and the digital communications industry, Adam saw a Jim’s Antennas franchise as an opportunity to do what he loves.
Rather than risk establishing an independent start-up business, Adam selected a Jim’s Antennas franchise as his preferred business model. Adam says, “I looked thoroughly at the options I had available to me. I considered going it alone, but decided upon the franchise model. Jim’s Antennas stood out to me due to brand power and reputation”. Adam continues, “From day one I knew I made the right decision. The professionalism of my franchisor and his team has been great and the training has also been outstanding”.
Adam attended Jim’s Group induction, which extends for three days and provides prospective franchisees with an understanding of the business model and why it’s been so successful over a 25 year period. Following induction Adam underwent four weeks ‘on the job’ training, which is designed to provide franchisees with the best platform from which to launch their new business. Adam states, “The training was comprehensive and I was able to hit the ground running. I’m confident with most aspects of the business, but if there’s something I’m not sure about there’s always someone within the group who knows the answer”.
There are so many facets to what Jim’s Antennas franchisees can offer clients, which is what attracted Adam: “One day I might put up four new antennas, the next day I might be doing a commercial antenna at an apartment complex. I also love helping people with their home entertainment needs, whether it be wall mounting a TV or setting up a surround sound system. The options are endless”, says Adam.
Adam adds, “I love the ability to work close to home, but I’m certainly not restricted to the area. Jim’s is a flexible system that allows me to take work where I want, when I want.
If you want to start your own business and have a passion for the industry then I highly recommend a Jim’s Antennas franchise”.
