Becoming a sleep consultant can vary in cost. Some training providers will offer online courses which are fairly low cost and offer the basics on how to become a sleep consultant. Others, like the Little Dreams training, are far more intensive. The Little Dreams training involves both in person and online training as well as continuous, minimum monthly, support throughout the life of your career as a sleep consultant both in terms of sleep and running your own business. You can read more about how to become a Little Dreams consultant here.
A sleep consultant’s income will vary depending on multiple factors: How many hours you work, what packages you offer, as well as your marketing techniques and rates of referrals. In addition, every area in the country will be different in terms of demographic. At Little Dreams, the average cost of a sleep consultation package is £300, and a full time consultant should be able to see between 14-16 clients per month. We have worked with a specialist mapping company to ensure there is demand, and clients, in each territory and you can read more here.
Franchising is basically the granting of a license by us (as the franchisor) to you (as the franchisee). This entitles you as the franchisee to trade under our trademark/trade name.
The franchisee pays an initial fee to get started and then an ongoing monthly fee and, in return, we provide everything needed to start and run their business successfully, from all the training to all the support and mentoring.
The franchisee gets all the support they need to run the business successfully and use all our systems, brand and expertise to operate under. For more information check out the British Franchise Association website.
Yes absolutely. You will have all the benefits of running your own business, in a way that works around you and your family, but with all the support you need from Little Dreams franchise Head Office and the entire network. Starting a business is often lonely and there are lots of mistakes which can be made at the outset - with a franchise you avoid all of that because there is a supportive network and proven business model already! This means you can be in business for yourself but never by yourself.
