Estimates show that close to a third of Americans in the corporate workforce need to make a positive change. Why do we say that? Statistics show that around 70 percent of “Corporate America” is dissatisfied with where they are in the business world. Have you ever felt like you were trudging uphill “both ways” and getting nowhere fast? Are you are a current or former executive and are struggling to remain engaged and inspired? If so, a franchise business could be your door to entirely fresh and exciting opportunities.
The franchise business is fraught with unknowns for corporate executives seeking new beginnings. It is also brimming with benefits and opportunities that can help you not only reach but expand your dreams. If you are looking to take on a new challenge with manageable risk, there is a perfect franchise business out there waiting for you. You will find one that needs you to spread its reach nationwide or globally. It’s not just as simple as choosing and buying a franchise business though. Franchise companies must award you the franchise. To ensure you are the ideal candidate to be awarded a franchise, here are a few qualities you can exhibit :
- A Track Record of Commitment
Successful franchisees are made up of individuals who answer emails on time and are honest about their workload. They also disclose what other commitments they have that could affect their franchise experience. If you are on time and an active participant during webinars, meetings, and follow-ups, you can gain loyalty and respect from quality franchisors. Being responsible and communicating well is part of running a business successfully. Franchisors notice this, especially when the unexpected happens and interferes with your plans.
- An Inquisitive Mind
People are curious. Curious people make new discoveries, support innovation and inspire progress. Franchisors love those who engage in business-minded conversations. They look for those who ask important questions and are hungry for all aspects of franchising knowledge. When you ask questions that require a depth of thought, it demonstrates your potential as a future CEO. Those franchisor professionals who see your efforts will be able to visualize your future successes.
- An Unparalleled Enthusiasm
Initiate contact with the franchise company with whom you are interested. Do you have concerns, thoughts, or new ideas to share with the franchise? If you share your insight with those whose success relies on your own, they will recognize you are “all in” for the long haul!
Franchise Business Guidance Counseling
You need a franchise advisor who will help connect you to the right franchise models to consider. The advisor should see your unique skill set as an asset to the operation under consideration. Your reliability and experience in the corporate world won’t escape the notice of a savvy advisor. A quality franchise company is usually seeking leaders who can maximize their brand.
The franchise advisor who has a lengthy supply of positive testimonials can help you successfully launch your campaign for franchise candidacy. In the franchise business, support and transparency are a necessary part of matching you to your ideal franchise fit.
If you need more assurance, who can provide better security than an experienced franchise advisor who knows the current environment in the franchise business industry? What franchise companies are trending? What services do people crave in the ever-changing business culture?
You can witness the rewards that others have gained through franchise ownership. Find an advisor who is a first-hand witness to those successes and has helped facilitate their transition. The results matter; your dreams should be important to an advisor who counts your franchise success as their own. They’ll help you reach for your dreams with a guiding hand and a surplus of industry knowledge you’ll need to succeed.
To be successful, asking the right questions is imperative. The franchise business is no different than other businesses. Thorough research and evaluation are always best practices to help ensure you construct protection for your interests. If you are seeking a franchise advisor to support your plans, make sure to ask questions like these:
- How many years have you actively worked as a franchise advisor?
- Are there placement examples you can share with me?
- What kind of experience have you had in the franchise industry itself? Have you ever been employed through a franchisor or franchisee?
- How candid can I expect you to be with those you think aren’t suitable candidates for a franchise?
- What characteristics in the franchise candidate and the company in which they have an interest make them ideal for each other?
- Is there a time when you felt a placement wasn’t as successful as you would have liked? Do you know why and what elements made it so?
Is the advisor you select available and willing to answer any questions you might have? Do they show a level of professionalism during the process? When the advisors you interview answer your questions, do they demonstrate a willingness to provide honest reflection? They should be a supportive and reliable ally in your search for a franchise. Truth matters and those who are willing to be truthful about themselves can be trusted to help you find the path that complements your personality and drive.
