    Wasn't aware that Slimming World themselves credit checked you - providing you can up the money at the start - they don't mind how you get it (i've heard of people taking loans, selling on ebay, all sorts to raise the money).

    I enquired about being a consultant to start next year ish when I'm a bit smaller and I got a phone call today inviting me' to the open day at a local hotel.
    I don't know how much it is to start up my own class but if it's a couple of grand instead of a loan I am selling my car and down grading it, also getting bigger so I can fit things in it.
    My open day isn't until nov 6th so who knows what might happen. I'm excited. :-)
    Regarding credit checks- I have no idea what they do as they get the bank natwest to provide the loan if you wish on a special slimming world loan so it might not be as vigilant. Give it a go and all you can do is try. Let us know how you get on. Xx

    Thats good then. I think you will be fine, the credit check will only have been for the loan so I really wouldnt worry about it hun.
    I hope you do really well. :-) and hopefully ill be joining you soon.

    Check out lots of consultants on explaining what involved: Going back to work | Thinking of becoming a slimming world consultant. (full thread) | Mumsnet Discussion

    Appears to cost a start up fee of 600 - 1000

    Had a SW round the world trip and gained ??? (Not sure as dont want to get weighed but gone up a clothing size so must be bad)
    But as of 31st Dec im on it!
    Going to get weighed once a month & take my measurements and see how they change rather than the scales.

    Done this before, so i can do it again (i just need to remember what self control is!
    )

    The credit check is not to do with the franchise fee but the group fees. If you did require finance, from say a bank, the bank would also credit check you. The reason SW do a check is, as a Consultant you will be responsible for all the money from the group session, so they deem it necessary to check that your credit file is good. SW will take their money out of your nominated bank account on a weekly basis.

    It may also be because, as well as group takings they are intrusting you with stock and equipment.

    Hope that makes sense, good luck x

    You'd think the fees would be a little lower, considering how many people would love to be a consultant, there could be at least one group in every town!
