In today’s world, the number of people interested in “being their own boss” seems to be increasing faster and faster. However, for many of them this is just a dream and not a real possibility, or at least so they think.
The main reason why people don’t live their dreams is that they are simply too busy living their fears! There are a multitude of fears in owning business such as money, risk aversion, lack of business acumen, and not knowing where to start. If you think about it, all those reasons are mostly based on personal beliefs.
Why to Explore Franchising
Yes, you need money to start your own
business, but not necessarily as much money as you think you need.
The truth is that there is a wide range of franchise options out there with investments that range from low, to medium, and all the way up to very high fees. This makes it almost impossible not to find an opportunity that suits your budget.
Yes, starting a new business is always a risky decision. However, being part of a franchise reduces that risk considerably. How is that? You may ask. Well, there are several answers to that question.
On one hand, the brand value. You don’t have to start building brand awareness from zero. Yes, you will have to work on creating that awareness locally; however, the fact that there are more businesses out there with your same brand, amplifies the recognition.
Also, the same fact that there are other franchise owners that came on board before you, brings a valuable opportunity for validation. You have people in the field who you can ask about the business, the market, the opportunities, and also about the franchisor.
By doing quality research you can mitigate some of the risk of starting your own business.
Yes, you need to have some business knowledge in order to start a business and be a business leader in your community… a franchise can help considerably.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean that you don’t need business experience at all, because it always helps to have that acumen. By doing research and finding the right franchise model that takes advantage of your transferrable skills the franchisor’s training program should further mitigate some of that risk.
Yes, you do need a support network when you start a new business and after that! And you will have it if you are part of a professional, well founded franchise business.
Not only will you have a support team at the Home Office, but also the support you will receive from your peers. Having a network of people doing the same as you, under the same umbrella as you, for longer than you is a priceless opportunity.
So, if you have an entrepreneurial desire to be your own boss and build your own vision, but don’t see yourself as an entrepreneur 100 percent, then it’s very likely that franchising is the right fit for you.
