IS YOUR CURRENT JOB GIVING YOU THE FLEXIBILITY AND FREEDOM YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED?
We think everybody can agree that we are living in a fast-paced society. Think about your current occupation. How much does it impact on the way you want to live your life? Nowadays, income is not the only thing you should consider; flexibility is becoming an increasingly important factor. What provides you with more flexibility than owning your own business? Let us give you some more reasons why owning your business is a good idea!
You control your earning potential!
Generally when you work under another person, there’s little chance to rise through the ranks and your income is generally pre-set. This means that no matter how hard you work or how much overtime you put it, you generally do not get paid more. When you have your own business, the amount you earn is completely up to you! Many people who own their own business report higher income levels than employed individuals.
You can set your own hours!
If you’re sick of the 9-to-5 grind, owning your own business is an excellent alternative. When you own your own business – you make up the hours and set your schedule. Say goodbye to the pre-set 40 hour week or constant worry of being on call. Do you have to take your children to school in the morning? That’s fine! Just book appointments throughout the rest of the day! You will love the flexibility owning your own business offers.
You get more ‘you’ time!
In the past week, how much time did you actually have to yourself? Whether you are passionate about spending time with your family and friends, or relaxing at the beach with a good book, joining A1 can give you more time to indulge in these simple pleasures. What’s more is that spending time doing things you actually enjoy can lead to an increased sense of well-being and self-esteem, and can actually make you more productive whilst you are working.
Enjoy what you do!
How often have you been unhappy with your current occupation? Turns out you aren’t alone! It is estimated that more than half of Australians are miserable in their current occupation. You can do something about this with the help of A1. People who run their own business report significantly higher levels of job satisfaction with over 90% of self-employed people saying that they enjoy their job. What a different that is!
SURE, YOU CAN SEE THE BENEFITS OF OWNING YOUR OWN BUSINESS, BUT WHY CHOOSE AN A1 FRANCHISE?
A lot of people going into business alone can begin to feel overwhelmed before even beginning their business! We think the advantages of A1 franchising speak for themselves:
Owning an A1 franchise:
- You know what your set-up costs will be and how much you are going to be investing
- You have access to an existing brand and operating systems
- You have access to support from individuals who know how to run a successful business
- You reap the benefits of a centrally organised marketing and brand promotions.
- You don’t have to be a marketing expert – we will help you! We know what works best for a cleaning service
- Provides you with a potential to grow your franchise
Going into business alone:
- You may go into business only expecting to invest a specific amount of money, but things are not set in stone when going it alone – there are often unexpected costs
- You might know your product and service inside and out, but how much do you know about marketing and promoting your brand? You might have to spend money on additional services such as marketing professionals or sales representatives, which will take away from your profit!
- There is a low chance that you will receive any support – you’re really on your own!
- Suppliers may not extend you credit as your business has no history. This means that you may have to pay for your goods upfront. This is highly detrimental to cash flow and could lead towards failure.
- You don’t have a national branding behind you, so customers might question your credibility and go with a more trusted brand.
As you can see, there are numerous positive outcomes that owning your own business can bring. If you want to start reaping the benefits, it’s so simple! All you have to do is call A1 today!
