It wasn’t so long ago that everyone seemed to be starting businesses. While the general subject of entrepreneurship might feel over-explored, the idea of quitting your job to stake your own path is a dream that members of different generations have had at some point.

When freedom is the goal, taking the leap is the hard part. It is easy to convince ourselves that we would be happier or more comfortable to stay in our jobs. We tell ourselves that “now is not a good time.” The reality is that there is never going to be a good time to start a business. There’s no denying that the current COVID19 pandemic has dramatically changed the work world as we know it, but this could actually mean that making the move from employee to business owner is an opportunity that happens sooner rather than later for some.

One way to smooth the transition into business ownership is to consider buying a franchise. Here is why (Click to Scroll):

  1. You have systems and moral support from the get go
  2. It is less risky than starting from scratch
  3. You determine your success
  4. There are many franchise financing options available

 

You have systems and moral support from the get go

An existing brand means access to resources and systems, easier marketing, and an entire team who can teach you how to effectively run your business. When you join a franchise system, you get the coaching, training, and ‘Business 101’ that comes with it. You can run a small business with the resources of a big company.

It is less risky than starting from scratch

When you launch a new business, you never know what to expect until it happens. With a tried-and-true system, others have had successes and failures before you. A franchisor has tested the waters and found what works and what doesn’t. As a franchise partner, you can then leverage this knowledge to enter into business ownership better prepared than most entrepreneurs.

You determine your success

Going into business for yourself, for some, is the ultimate freedom. What you put into it is what you get out of it. You will want to put your best foot forward in the business because it is depending on you to make it successful. While there are certain expectations you will need to meet as a franchisee, there are also opportunities to be flexible in the way you choose to manage your team, your day-to-day operations, your schedule, and so on.

There are many franchise financing options available

The strong brand and financial history behind a franchise can make it easier for banks to justify approval of a loan. Nurse Next Door recently published an article on our franchise blog (How to Finance a Franchise) that includes alternative financing options, like borrowing, leveraging home equity and more. It also includes information on the current SBA initiative to support small business, including their incentive to automatically cover the first six months of principal, interest and fee payments for loans funded before September 27, 2020. 

If you are a motivated, organized and tenacious individual who likes structure but also wants to leave your mark by making a difference to the lives of seniors in the community, a franchise – especially one with purpose – could be your next big success.
