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.

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

Thanks, I do understand that just feel that it is very wrong they take ur credit into account, u could have bad credit for very good reasons and just because ur credit is bad does not mean u r a dishonest person.

Guess its just a waiting game now to see if it will affect me. X
Completely agree... hope it works out for you. :)

Hi All,

Hope you don't mind me gate crashing this thread...My consultant asked if i've ever considered becoming a consultant and ever since its been playing on my mind.

I'm not in the position to become one just yet - I've only just gone back to work after 6 months maternity leave.

I also would like to get to target first.

One question that springs to mind is the area - How the heck does that get sorted? Is it your resposibility or do SW pick a village or something close by???

my consultant is an area manager and she says she has groups that need new consultants so I think they tell you where is in need of a new group or consultant

yeah your area manager will let you know what days are free to do in or around your area!! For example there are several groups in my area but none on a tuesday so I will be opening mine on tuesdays! xx

I see, I know there are lots of villages around me with no club so I just wondered if thats how it happened.

Really wish I could commit to it earlier but I really must save up first and feel fiancially stable as I will really want to make a go of it.
