Being the CEO of Your Future

I would say that approximately 10% of the people that I know really enjoy what they do professionally.  They are in an enviable position because I would say the remaining 90% are just staying with their current job (working for someone else) because of the lack of job security these days or there are simply too many bills to pay.  But, every once in a while, you meet someone who gives you a glimpse of what real passion looks like.  Maybe it’s professional passion or possibly it’s personal passion, but regardless, it’s eye opening and inspiring.  Yes, I know, it’s so darn easy to get caught up in routines and day-to-day craziness.  I bet you are thinking to yourself right now that you don’t even have time to work out let alone plan how to have control over your professional destiny.  Am I right?  Well, I want to give you a glimpse into how you can become the CEO of your own future through franchising.

Ownership in a franchise requires a true entrepreneurial spirit, and the willingness to keep a positive outlook even when getting your business off the ground seems daunting. Franchise ownership is not for everyone; I am always very upfront regarding this point. Your achievement will be defined by the vision you create and the choices that you make to support it.  However, there are so many rewards to being in charge of your own professional future!

Here’s the good news…owning a franchise offers most of the benefits of traditional business ownership with far less risk and provides additional aspects to assist with wealth potential. By buying into a franchise, you have the immediate backing of a recognized brand with a proven track record and business system. A franchise system also generally offers:

  • Training and support
  • Volume purchasing benefits
  • Start-up assistance
  • Access to marketing and advertising programs
  • Use of the franchisor’s business system3
