At Conserva Irrigation, we believe our franchise business can be a fulfilling and lucrative venture for ecologically-minded entrepreneurs, and we love to celebrate those who find success. One of those is Vanessa Ellis, a franchise owner in Porte Vedra Beach, Florida, who was recently in the spotlight for the success of her business even in the face of the pandemic. Bizwomen, part of The Business Journals, featured Vanessa in its column “In Her Own Words: Living in the Age of Coronavirus.”
Vanessa achieved a 278% sales increase year-over-year despite the pandemic and other economic disruptions, a fact that makes her proud but doesn’t really surprise her. After all, she points out, with more people at home, homeowners are spending money on home services—most of which have been deemed essential. Not only that, Vanessa has held tight to her belief that she can accomplish whatever she sets her mind to.
In the column, linked below in its entirety, Vanessa reflects on the past five months in business during the pandemic and shares her advice and insight for other entrepreneurs.
Conserva Irrigation was especially appealing to Vanessa as a franchise opportunity because of our commitment to water conservation. She is passionate about ecological issues and wanted to be a part of the solution to the water waste problem in our country.
Vanessa knew that although irrigation can be a seasonal business in some areas, it’s year-round in Florida. While this is good for business, it also makes conservation especially important. This, she points out, is why it’s important to know your market.
Finally, Vanessa encourages anyone with the means to invest in themselves and to be their own boss. An irrigation franchise like Conserva offers a recession-resistant, low-cost-to-entry opportunity that’s mobile in nature—perfect for evolving or unpredictable times.
