If you have a standard 9-to-5 working for someone else’s business, you may be familiar with the feeling of dragging out of bed in the morning. Do you spend your days staring at the clock, anxiously waiting for it to strike 5 so you can sit on your couch and watch TV? On Sunday nights, do you silently mourn the death of your weekend, as you’ll soon need to exchange it for yet another dreaded Monday? If you find yourself lacking passion and excitement for your job, we have a solution: work for yourself by owning a franchise!
Working for someone else can surely have its pitfalls. For example, you simply can’t exercise control like a business owner can. Most employees will spend their days answering to their higher-ups, tending to a seemingly infinite amount of tasks that they’re simply not passionate about. They’ll scramble around making up for the inefficiencies and mistakes of their peers. They’ll have to give 110% to try to get that promotion that just might never even happen.
Franchise owners have the opportunity to start their own career path. They can call the shots, make important decisions, and run their business the way they want to. Gone are the days of sheepishly folding at the whims of others who have more power than you – even though they may not even be as good of a worker as you.
A huge reason that people don’t find themselves happy with their careers is that they simply may not be passionate about their company. Perhaps the company works you to the bone without so much as a “thank you” or a “good work.” Maybe the leadership is too lax and unorganized, or maybe it’s too stiff and overbearing. Since owning a franchise means owning your business, you have the power to create your own work environment. You can build a place your team members will truly enjoy, which will help to boost morale. Data shows that happy employees are better employees, which directly affects your business.
So what are you waiting for? Get excited about your career and your future by owning a Pretzelmaker franchise.
