BE YOUR OWN BOSS
There are countless reasons why purchasing a franchise is such an attractive investment opportunity, but the opportunity to be your own boss is the one many people have dreamed about their entire working lives. A FranNet franchise consultant will discuss in great detail what it’s like to be your own boss throughout the process, but there are some very common reasons the majority of Americans would prefer to be their own boss. Here are some of the advantages that all prospective franchisees must consider:
OWNING YOUR OWN BUSINESS MAY PROVIDE YOU WITH
- Greater income potential. Most people would prefer to have their hard work and smart decisions rewarded with soaring profits and expansion rather than a good performance review.
- You enjoy more flexibility in your schedule. Whether you’d like to spend more time with your family, traveling, working on other business opportunities – whatever the case may be – being your own boss means you can hire capable managers to keep your business running smoothly while you aren’t around.
- You don’t have to worry about being fired or laid off. No one ever said going into business – even relatively low risk franchise opportunities – didn’t involve some risk, but being an employee in the corporate world carries just as much if not more risk these days. Whether you get stuck with a boss you simply can’t work with, or the employer is searching for a way to cut costs, firings and layoffs are an inevitable reality that are often times very difficult to control.
- You’ll learn to be a better leader. Being in charge teaches new business owners lessons in teamwork, compassion and decision-making. Being in a position of leadership provides business owners with a sense of pride that is impossible to put a price tag on.
