The Entrepreneur’s Source Explores 3 Common Employee Career Complaints

The Entrepreneur’s Source Explores 3 Common Employee Career Complaints

With nearly half of all middle-class Americans lacking confidence in their ability to save sufficiently for retirement, many individuals are researching new professional opportunities. Researching common career complaints, The Entrepreneur’s Source® has worked to provide workers with the tools necessary for going from Employment to Empowerment® and cure Battered Career Syndrome®.

Battered Career Syndrome® means being subjected to the frustration of turning to the next career path in the company you work for, and then being downsized, right-sized or let go, and then having to start over again,” said Terry Powell, founder of The Entrepreneur’s Source®. “It is when you find out your job has been outsourced, disappeared, or that the company has cut back. Battered Career Syndrome® is something that exists in a very large percentage of employment situations today.”

Top Three Common Career Complaints:

1)  Lack of communication. Just like any relationship, a lack of communication between two parties can lead to disastrous results. The National Business Research Institute has found that a lack of communication between an employee and employer typically begins when a worker is afraid to speak up to managers for fear of retribution, which can be valid or not. Strong communication between an employer and employee is constantly evolving. Many organizations are still unable or unwilling to create the necessary processes and devote resources to developing this protocol.

2) The absence of job security.  While the Great Recession has officially been labeled over by politicians and economic researchers alike, many professionals feel their jobs are still in jeopardy. Corporations are still laying off large groups of people, even entire departments or sending positions overseas.

3) Decreased empowerment. After facing layoffs and outsourcing, professionals in various industries are suffering financially and emotionally. The everyday grind can wear someone down. Empowerment is based on the concept of self-sufficiency, according to The Entrepreneur’s Source® Founder Terry Powell and Brand Manager Tamara Loring.

The Entrepreneur’s Source® is dedicated to combating top career complaints and help professionals go from Employment to Empowerment®.

People are no longer empowered by the predictability of yesterday’s traditional career path they have been on. Moving from Employment to Empowerment® is based on the idea that self-sufficiency can increase an individual’s morale, creating a happier life balance.

The Entrepreneur’s Source Reviews The Secret To Finding The Right Franchise: A Franchise Coach

The Entrepreneur’s Source Reviews The Secret To Finding The Right Franchise: A Franchise Coach.

Many people have a misconception about franchise business coaching. A franchise coach is not the same thing as a franchise consultant or even a franchise broker. It’s a franchise coach’s job to help prospective franchisees discover the realm of the franchise industry and how investing in a franchise can bring an individual closer to meeting his or her Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity (I.L.W.E.) goals.

“Business coaching is about listening to and looking at the individual client’s goals, needs and expectations, and then allowing them to discover business opportunities in a safe space,” said founder of The Entrepreneur’s Source  Terry Powell.

Today, The Entrepreneur’s Source® reviews how prospective franchisees can benefit from franchise coaching.

What Can a Franchise Business Coach Offer You?
The Entrepreneur’s Source® has been using the franchise coaching method for over 30 years and has experienced great success due to its continual refinement of the process. Coaches at The Entrepreneur’s Source® focus on collaborating with prospective franchisees to find a franchise opportunity that will help them reach their I.L.W.E. goals.

Here The Entrepreneur’s Source® reviews the advantages and benefits consulting with a franchise coach can bring to a prospective franchisee:

1.  An Insider Perception of the Franchise Sector:
Franchise business coaches are trained and well-versed in the franchising industry. Their advice and education to entrepreneurs who may be new to the sector can go a long way.  Coaches can provide the educational foundation of the franchising sector that a prospective franchisee may need from the get go. Gaining an education and understanding of different franchise systems, models and industries can be vital to the success of a franchisee’s future. This knowledge of the industry along with examining an individual’s I.L.W.E. goals will enable prospective franchisees to choose the right franchise opportunity for them.

2.  Tailored Franchise Opportunities:
When researching business opportunities without a coach, it’s common for prospective franchisees to fall into the trap of putting their blinders on and only looking at the familiar. This can greatly limit one’s search for business opportunities, causing prospective franchisees to possibly miss an opportunity that could have been the perfect fit for them. As coaches go through the Discovery Process with a client, they are able to gain a better understanding of what type of franchise opportunities are a good fit for each unique client– even if this differs from their client’s initial vision.

3. Continual Support
Coaching is a continual process, and ESource coaches provide support through the entirety of it, from the initial stages of being introduced to a client to ultimately signing a franchise deal. Franchise coaches remain actively involved in this process from the time that they recommend certain franchise opportunities, to the stage of aiding a franchisee in locating a franchise attorney for document reviews and even providing introductions to CPAs. Many coaches at The Entrepreneur’s Source® stay in touch with their clients after they sign a franchise deal in order to confirm that they’re not only successful, but pleased with their decision.

The Entrepreneur’s Source Reviews: Setting Your Big Picture through Goals, Needs & Expectations

The Entrepreneur’s Source Reviews: Setting Your Big Picture through Goals, Needs & Expectations

When individuals are asked why they want to start a business, the number one response isn’t money: it’s lifestyle. Being your own boss and earning unlimited income potential is all great, but the priceless possibility of being able to have the life balance you can’t achieve in corporate America is often more important to aspiring entrepreneurs.

Setting the Big Picture through Goals, Needs & Expectations

One of the tactics The Entrepreneur’s Source employs to aid you in defining your Goals, Needs & Expectations is the determination of your I.L.W.E.

I.L.W.E. – What is it?

It stands for income, lifestyle, wealth and equity—each of these components plays a vital role in achieving overall happiness and satisfaction in your life.

So ask yourself: Are you currently hitting or exceeding your income expectations? Are you living the lifestyle of your dreams? What about your wealth or equity: Is it growing or declining?

Income is defined as: Your re-occurring short term earnings through employment and investments. What do you envision your income to be in the next 3 to 5 years?

Lifestyle is defined as: a manner of living that reflects your values and attitudes. What do you envision your lifestyle to be in the next 3 to 5 years?

Wealth is defined as: the state of being rich and affluent; having a plentiful supply of material goods and money. How do you envision your wealth portfolio in the next 15 to 20 years?

Equity is defined as: the interest in assets you have built up. What assets will you own that will provide you and your family with long-term equity over the next 10 to 20 years? 

From Employment to Empowerment – The Coaching Advantage 

An Entrepreneur’s Source Franchise Coach can help you paint the “big picture” of your life through a discovery and education based process.

A coach will help identify your transferrable skills by learning about your professional background, including previous roles you’ve had, what you enjoyed and what you didn’t enjoy, to begin painting a picture about your profile and skillset.

If in fact self-employment is a viable option, a coach will help to establish your specific goals for business ownership based on your I.L.W.E.

Some questions a coach will help you to answer might include:

  • What’s your income target that you would like to have as a result of being involved in the business?
  • What are your lifestyle goals? Do you want to work Monday to Friday, nine to five? 
  • Do you want to create and invest in a business that will allow you to build wealth and start to create a positive financial situation for you and your family?
  • How much equity do you want to be able to build up in a business, so to that point it’s going to be worth something to someone else?

Each of these components is a vitally important piece in defining your overall goals, needs and expectations in order to find the best business opportunity fit.

Aspiring entrepreneurs can take the first steps toward finding the right franchise opportunity by visiting  http://www.entrepreneurssource.com/ If you’re looking to take control of your future and finally achieve self-sufficiency without the undesirable tradeoffs, then contact an alternative career coach at The Entrepreneur’s Source franchise today.

E-Source coaches can help guide you through a Discovery Process in which you can establish your unique Income, Wealth, Equity and Lifestyle Goals to help you uncover your Possibilities, Options and Dreams.

The Entrepreneur’s Source Helps You Achieve YOU 2.0 in 2017

The Entrepreneur’s Source Helps You Achieve YOU 2.0® by Analyzing the Dangers, Strengths and Opportunities

While many of us strive to become autonomous in our employment, we oftentimes fall into the trap of staying unhappy in our careers due to fears of taking a leap and making a change. If you’re unsatisfied in your current career and are looking to turn your employment situation around, 2017 can and should be the year that you transform from You 1.0 to YOU 2.0®. Make 2017 the year you achieve YOU 2.0® and move from Employment to Empowerment®.

In 2017, you can achieve YOU 2.0®, by setting clear goals for yourself. Are you unsure of where you should start? Below The Entrepreneur’s Source® will explain how you can begin your journey to YOU 2.0®. by analyzing the Dangers, Strengths and Opportunities that come with achieving self-sufficiency.

Dangers
These are the thoughts and ideas that keep you up at night, the obstacles, stressors and issues that are currently facing you or what may face you in your future. Dangers make an individual feel as if they have no control over their destiny and often discourage an individual from following through the goal that they have set for themselves. Some common dangers that people are concerned about include:

  • How long will I be able to keep my current job?
  • Are my skills transferrable?
  • Is my age a limitation in my career?
  • Do I have the ability to build the wealth and equity for my family?

The dangers you face should not paralyze you, there are ways to be proactive and overcoming these circumstances. Each individual has the power to take control of his or her career, aligning yourself with a coach and empower you to see beyond your current blind spots, and empower you to overcome these perceived roadblocks.

Strengths
These, in short, are what you’re considered well at: Your talents, capabilities and skills. These are what you should capitalize on when creating YOU 2.0®. because they can act as the tools to achieve your dreams. Start by asking yourself what you believe your strengths are with these guiding questions:

  • Do you have an immaculate work ethic?
  • Are you adaptable and resilient when it comes to change?
  • What transferrable skills do you possess?
  • Are you possibilities focused?

There are dozens of questions that an individual can ask themselves to determine what his or her unique strengths are, and ones above should only be a starting point. When looking into your strengths, don’t wallow in your weaknesses because dwelling on these can hold you back from self-sufficiency. Instead, focus on the positive.

Opportunities
These are the circumstances and possibilities that get you excited and motivated to make a change. It’s not always easy to see what possibilities are out there because dangers sometimes overshadow the opportunities, but you can overcome this by focusing on what you want in your future, not what will stop you from getting there. Some opportunities that an individual can focus on include:

  • Your hunger to create the lifestyle of your dream
  • Your desire to spend more time with your friends and family
  • Your yearning to become financially independent
  • Your aspiration to become more passionate about your career.

It’s easy to get inspired by the opportunities that stand before you, because in reality they are endless. By writing down the most important ones to you, this can help you become more driven to actually set a pathway for you to accomplish them.

Achieving YOU 2.0®. is a process and may take some time, but by starting the transformation by identifying your Dangers, Strengths and Opportunities as the first step in the process, by the time 2018 rolls in You 1.0 can be long gone.

Why not invest in yourself and your future now and get yourself a copy of the book: Your Career 2.0®: A Survival Guide for the Battered Career® and Investor Syndrome®.
