A new job can bring schedule changes, a learning curve, and new company culture, but if major life changes are what you’re looking for, a new job may fall short. It will impact your everyday activities, certainly, but it probably won’t bring major change. Breaking out of the employer/employee mold by becoming your own boss as a franchise business owner is the best way to really effect change in your career and your life. You’ll no longer be at the boss’s beck and call and you will hold your future in your own hands.

There’s no waiting—franchise opportunities are available today so you can take charge of all your tomorrows

Home Franchise Concepts (HFC) has been affecting life change for entrepreneur-minded individuals for over 27 years by building a franchise family of award-winning franchise brands that helps its franchise business owners to build successful businesses. 1,800 franchise owners strong across four brands, HFC is one of the largest franchise companies in North America and a leader in franchisor/franchisee relationships. If franchising is something you’ve thought about but aren’t quite sure what it has to offer, as a start, here are just five ways your life will change by becoming a franchise business owner.

One:  Make as much money as you want

Job reviews, raises, sliding commission percentages, or pay cuts that happen when you work for someone else will no longer be a part of your world. With an HFC franchise business, you will get out of the business what you put in. You reap the benefit of all your hard work, commitment, and going that extra mile; the money you earn will go into your pocket instead of your boss’s. There are no limits to how much you can make, you grow the business to the size you want, and your efforts could translate directly to a healthy bottom line … your bottom line!

Grow the business you need in order to reach the financial goals you’ve set for your business and your family

Two: Work every day with people you choose to work with

Since you’ll build your own team of employees, you won’t be stuck with an abrasive or uncooperative co-worker or manager. You can “keep it in the family” for a legacy business to pass on to sons or daughters, hire like-minded individuals who share your level of commitment to quality customer service, and fill sales, admin, and installation positions with people you respect and enjoy being around. Going to work each day is much more rewarding when surrounded by people you like and trust.

Three: Sleep better at night

If you’ve ever spent restless nights worrying about what’s going on at the office, Google‘s latest algorithm changes, or market shifts due to economic conditions, you’ll appreciate the idea of getting a blissful night’s sleep! As a franchise business owner, you have all the resources of HFC behind you to support you in every area of your business. Home Office management teams stay on top of everything that touches your business from consumer sales and marketing trends to the latest and greatest technologies. You don’t have to lose sleep over every change to the business landscape, you can rest assured that you’ll be kept current and up to date on everything you need to know to make your business successful.

You can relax and breathe when you know that an award-winning, national franchise company has your back and is dedicated to your success

Four: Spend more time with family and friends or revisit long-neglected hobbies

A 40-, 50-, or 60-hour workweek can make it seem like there’s no time for anything else. And, to a degree, that’s true. You owe certain hours to your employer and there isn’t much flex to accommodate other life needs. As a franchise business owner, you can control your schedule, making time for things outside of work that matter for a healthy work/life balance. Maybe you’d prefer to work late a couple nights a week to have some daytime hours free or working on Saturday appeals to you so you can have another day of the week free for social engagements or your kids’ activities. As the boss of your own franchise business, you can structure work hours so that you also have a full personal life!

Have more time to relax with family and friends and enjoy your favorite leisure time activities

Five: Worry less about retirement

As you grow your franchise business day by day, enjoying the benefits it gives you and your family, you’re also setting yourself up for a more comfortable retirement. By building a successful franchise business now, by the time you’re ready to retire, it could be a very valuable asset. All those years you’ve invested in yourself could translate to a profitable sales price you can count on when it’s time to sell the business and move effortlessly into retirement.

Retirement planning goes hand in hand with growing your franchise business and living the dream of being your own boss
