There are certain signs, signals, and hints that show us we’re ready to make major lifestyle changes. In our experience, this happens on a professional level sometimes. Scout & Molly’s Boutique decided, years ago, to expand from a sole proprietorship into a larger franchise chain with small clothing shops all over the eastern U.S.
Every entrepreneur will encounter certain signs that tell them it’s time to look for something new, exciting, and lucrative. In this piece, we’d like to explore those special signs that could be telling you it’s time to think about opening your own franchise business.
Your Regular Job is Boring, Frustrating, or Unchallenging
While we don’t want to view franchising solely as an “escape from the grind,” it has been a motivating factor for many franchisees. You could find yourself bored at work, tired of a stifling bureaucracy, or haven’t had a legitimate challenge in a while. Many Type-A personalities enjoy the opportunity to franchise because it puts them in charge of their own enterprise but with the predictability of a proven business model.
You Find Yourself Meditating on Potential Career Changes
Have you had a lot of daydreaming, meditating, or brainstorming over new goals and dreams? This could include thinking about things such as “How do I become my own boss?” or “What are viable alternative careers for me?” You can’t expect your bosses and employers to facilitate those things, but it’s perfectly natural to ponder new prospects. If those urges persist, then it might be a sign you should explore entrepreneurial ideas.
Perhaps the Timing Feels Right
Are you the type of thinker and shaker who’s been looking for the right idea, with good timing, but haven’t found it until now? You may have reached a precipice where it feels like you should pull the trigger now, given your particular life circumstances.
You Search the Internet for “New Careers” and “Franchising Opportunities”
So, even just reading stuff like this could be a dead giveaway that you’re itching to get into franchising or start some type of new business. You don’t have to make any fast decisions, but if you research the topic all the time, then don’t hesitate to take your investigation a little further.
The best part is that there are probably a bunch of other subtle indicators that you’re ready for this lucrative career shift. Everyone’s a little different, and if you’re not sure what to do next, it never hurts to talk to a franchise consultant.
In fact, you’re always welcome to explore franchising opportunities with our team at Scout & Molly’s Boutique. There are many details to cover, but we can facilitate things and guide you in the right direction, whatever that may be.
