What’s the Perfect Age to Become a Franchisee?
If you are considering running your own business, you might well be thinking about becoming a franchisee, but is this the right time in your life to make this step? The reality is that there isn’t one particular age at which it makes sense to take on a franchising opportunity, as you can really make a success of it at any time in your working life, so long as you have the correct skills and enthusiasm. Whatever your age, there are benefits to be reaped from working for yourself as part of a known franchise.
Read on to find out how becoming a franchisee might suit you, right now:
Young and determined to prove a point
Whilst experience is something not to be knocked in business, you can’t deny that many young people make up for this with their drive and enthusiasm. If your first few years in the workplace have made you realise you want to work for yourself but you haven’t got that silver bullet idea, becoming a franchisee might be the perfect solution. Of course, you’ll need all the skills necessary to make a great franchisee – such as being hardworking, being good with finance and having a willingness to learn – but your youthful passion could be the driving force behind your franchise success.
Wanting flexibility to work around young family
If you are struggling to balance your career with the demands of looking after young children, now might be the time to make the brave step into entrepreneurship. Whilst it might seem daunting to work for yourself, with the support of the franchise behind you, the risks of self-employment are hugely reduced. There is no getting away from the fact that working for yourself is hard work, but being your own boss means you can choose your hours and have the flexibility to fit the school run, after school sports clubs and dance lessons around your working timetable.
Experienced but unhappy with your current career
Independence is something you can crave at any point in your career, so just because you have worked in the same industry for 20 years, doesn’t mean it’s too late to make a change. Experience, as we said earlier, is a valuable asset in the workplace and whatever industry you gain it in, you can transfer those skills and apply them to working for yourself. If you are tired of doing the same job day in day out, or just want the opportunity to prove yourself as a boss, now is probably the perfect time to consider becoming a franchisee.
You don’t have to worry about going it alone, as you can become your own boss within the tried and tested framework of the franchise.
