Whether you are working from home, or are one who may have recently become unemployed due to this stressful pandemic, chances are you have more time now to spend with your family, watch your favorite movies, and yes…consider if now’s the time to explore that next career or job change. And yes, while following the government’s stay-at-home guidelines can be challenging and frustrating, we can all take solace in knowing that while we may feel alone and isolated, as a country, we are still together in our resolve to beat the coronavirus, and looking forward to returning to our normal lifestyle. But once the stay-at-home guidelines are lifted, is continuing in your current job or even returning to your former job your best option?

Is returning to your current or former job the best option for you? Now’s the time to explore.

Now’s the time to consider owning a home-based franchise business.

Whether you are looking to control your own earning potential, establish a legacy family business, provide yourself with flexible work hours, or all of the above, then yes, during this temporary economic and workforce pause we’re facing, now’s the perfect time to reflect on what owning your own franchise can do for you and your family.  For many, pursuing the dream of owning a successful home-based franchise business begins with Home Franchise Concepts (HFC), the leading home service franchisor in North America, and the parent company of successful brands such as Budget Blinds, Tailored Living,  Concrete Craft, and AdvantaClean. That’s because for more than 25 years, HFC has been partnering with people just like you who dared to dream of owning their own business- and succeeded. So, if your initial thoughts about a home-based franchise business have stalled, perhaps due to the perception that it’s too expensive to start, or that you may not have the skill set required, then now’s the time to think again.  Now’s the time to invest a relatively small amount of your time, particularly now that you find yourself home with more idle time than usual, because you may be surprised at how attainable that dream franchise business really is. To help clarify why now’s the time to explore this next chapter in your life, let’s take a look at a few of the key advantages that a franchise business offers.

Enhance your quality of life through a healthy work-life balance.

Naturally, your health is an important aspect to your overall quality of life. And as a successful franchised business owner, you are in an ideal position to monitor and adjust your workload to achieve that all important, but often elusive “work-life” balance. Now’s the time to own your own business, especially if it’s a successful, branded franchise that has a strong reputation, allows you stay in control by effectively building your team, offers self-scheduling for time off for family and vacations, and eliminates those stressful commutes to and from the office, if your franchise is home-based.

Business ownership allows you to adjust your workload to achieve all that is important.

Minimize risk with comprehensive support and training.

One aspect of a successful home-based business includes the ability to reduce risk as a business owner. If you explore potential business opportunities thoroughly you will find that many franchisors, especially Home Franchise Concepts, have developed successful business platforms, and in essence, a recipe for success for those who dream of owning their own business. Yes, there are fees involved as a franchisee that cover marketing, training and other business aspects, however, the right franchisor delivers a robust ROI on your investment with a proven business model that empowers you to succeed.

Take control over your eventual success.

You may already be familiar with this scenario, but it’s important to re-visit in this case. As an employee you can dedicate many years of your life to a company, only to find yourself out of a job due to situations totally out of your control.  Case in point- the current coronavirus pandemic. Management changes, mergers, acquisitions, downsizing and outsourcing- all tend to force sudden and unexpected change. On the other hand, if you own your own business, you gain greater control over the amount of money you can make, as well as other business functions.

You choose the people you work with.

When you work for someone else, you rarely get to choose whom you work with. If your co-workers are not performing as they should, you oftentimes do not have the ability to make critical personnel changes, which in turn, impacts your work.  However, that’s not the case when you own your own business, since you get to make the decisions about who to hire and terminate. When you surround yourself with positive people who give you the confidence and optimism you need to keep moving forward, great work gets done and great things happen.

Franchise ownership gives you the power to select the positive people you want to work with.
