Giving Thanks for Work-Life Balance

Have you heard horror stories about corporate workers bringing their work home with them, not having a family life? What about owners putting in 100 hour weeks to get their business up and running?

With more and more retail shops opening up on Thanksgiving, some hourly workers are even losing a bit of their work-life balance?

So, how can franchising restore a work life balance?

  • The systems are already in place: The beautiful thing about a franchised concept is that the systems are already in place. Other franchise owners of the same concept have been successful using the same systems, and you can literally take pages out of their playbook to use in your market. You may also benefit from an overall corporate marketing strategy that will drive business to your front door. Don’t lose your valuable time working and fretting about trying to re-invent the wheel.
  • Different ownership models: Owning a business doesn’t have to mean working it “Full-time”. The semi-absentee ownership models allowed by some franchise concepts allows the owner to work approximately 20 hours per week. Knowing this in advance can help you control your schedule and work life balance, rather than feeling out of control. 
FranNet is here to teach you more about franchising, and how you can maintain the work-life balance you want. If you’re feeling like you’re sacrificing your family life for your work, it might be time to learn more.
