Franchising can give you the flexibility and independence you want while providing the financial stability you need—which is why so many people choose this route when they’re looking for balance in their lives. Here, we break down why franchising is so effective at helping entrepreneurs achieve their goals without sacrificing family time or personal interests:
Work-life balance is important
Work-life balance is a key to happiness, and it’s important for your health. It can also help you succeed in your career, and make sure that you have time for family and other commitments that are important to you.
As well as offering prospects a unique opportunity to become their own boss whilst enjoying the benefits of an established business with a proven track record of success, franchising also offers flexibility and freedom that you do not get from being an employee.
According to Forbes, there are many franchise models that can contribute to a better work-life balance.
Identifying what work-life balance looks like for you, will help when it comes to identifying the right franchise for you. If you only want to work certain days a week so that you can limit the amount of money spent on childcare, then you need to be clear about these from the outset. Investing in a home-based franchise may give you the flexibility to only work whilst your children are in school, for example.
You’re more likely to have positive work-life balance if you own your own business
If you’re looking for more flexibility and balance, franchising can give you what you need.
As a franchisee, you have control over your schedule. You can work when and how you want to, which is especially helpful if you have children or other responsibilities that require attention at certain times of the day.
Being your own boss, there’s no one telling you what to do or when to do it- you get to choose how much time and energy (and money) goes into each task based on what works for your business goals and lifestyle needs.
Spend time with your family AND be successful
Many people want to be successful and have a family, but they don’t know how they’re going to do it all. Franchising is an option that allows you to work from home or choose your own hours so that you can spend more time with your family.
You can choose when and where you want to work, which means that if an emergency comes up at home or school, there’s no need for panic–you can just take care of things on your own schedule instead of having to rush back right away because someone else decided they needed something done immediately!
Start small and grow, naturally
One of the great benefits of franchising is that you can start small and grow as needed. Franchising enables entrepreneurs to take control of their careers by allowing them to own a business, with many added benefits someone starting on their own would not enjoy.
Benefits include a proven successful business model to follow as well as extensive support in multiple areas including training, marketing, and technology. At Stagecoach Performing Arts, Schools tend to grow organically – stimulated by the demand for after-school activities and clubs for children of all ages. The Stagecoach Model is a proven franchise model aimed at making a difference to franchisees and their local community.
In addition, franchising has the potential to lead the charge for working to live, rather than the other way around. As the future of how we work becomes increasingly important to more and more people, work-life balance will continue to be at the forefront of that debate.
