You love calling the shots in life, so why should things be any different when it comes to your profession? There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be the boss. And being the head of a franchise branch may be the best kind of boss there is.
You have control
One of the biggest indicators of life satisfaction is how much we have control over our circumstances. Even if those circumstances aren’t perfect, or you still have major goals you want to reach, a great deal of your happiness depends on who says what you can (and can’t) do. If you’ve ever looked at your boss and thought, “I KNOW I could do a better job,” opening a franchise may be your chance to do that.
You have a community
If you’re a people person, you’re probably looking for more chances to interact with your local community. But there are only so many hours during the (non-working) day and on weekends to do so. Enter your own franchise. You can interact with the public in a much more direct way. Suddenly, you’re known for being the owner of XYZ franchise – not just a vaguely familiar face on your block.
