The labour market is no longer what it used to be, and as a result, job security is virtually non-existent in many settings. It’s no longer possible to rely on large pension funds to secure your future; social benefits are decreasing and restructuring has the power to change your destiny overnight. In short, you can no longer rely on your employer to provide you with your retirement. So who better than yourself to invest in your future?
We would all like, one day or another, to become our own boss. We're tired of hearing: "Do this, do that", "like that" and "it's for yesterday," especially when it is the boss who, in the end, receives the credit. But although starting a business may seem like a dream come true, you have to be willing to invest. The big difference is that you work for yourself: you reap the benefits of your efforts.
But how can entrepreneurship be tied to good working conditions? In the franchise industry, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel: the formula for business success has already proven its worth. From the outset, you benefit from the expertise and support of the franchisor. Of course, this is not a reason to relax, but you also don’t have to say goodbye to your quality of life.
Embarking on a franchise is about accelerating the achievement of profitability and business growth. As an entrepreneur, it’s also about choosing a more or less stable career, but which offers a ton of stimulating challenges. Usually, depending on the chain, acquiring your franchise binds you to the franchisor for a period of 5 to 20 years. That means it’s important to choose carefully.
Joining a franchise network means becoming your own boss, but also enjoying the many advantages of belonging to a group: you benefit from the expertise of the franchisor and that of franchise entrepreneurs who share an experience similar to yours. You can help each other, collaborate, discuss, share good practices and thus break down the silo mentality that too often slows down organizational performance. You’re able to develop your business more quickly than if you were alone.
And when you decide to pull out, you don’t leave empty-handed; you will have an asset in your possession: the fruits of your labour. You often have the freedom to sell your business, subject, of course, to meeting the requirements of your franchisor. That gives you a chance to enjoy your future, of a kind that many people don’t have.
Depending on the franchise network, it is sometimes possible to acquire more than one franchise, which allows you not only to increase your potential income, but to have good growth as a franchise entrepreneur. Owning more than one franchise can change your daily life and the nature of your challenges, satisfying the most ambitious among you.
