The Entrepreneur’s Source Asks: Can Franchising Help You Achieve Your Possibilities, Options and Dreams?

The Entrepreneur’s Source Examines the Freedom of Franchise Ownership. Can Franchising Help You Achieve Your Possibilities, Options and Dreams?

Do you ever wonder if investing in a franchise can help you achieve your Possibilities, Options, and Dreams? Well, the simple answer to this question is yes, it can. Franchising is a great route to self-sufficiency for prospective entrepreneurs looking to achieve their Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity (I.L.W.E.) Goals. Today, The Entrepreneur’s Source franchise explores why franchising is an optimal route to help an individual reach his or her Possibilities, Options, and Dreams (POD.)

The Entrepreneur’s Source Franchise on Examining Your POD

The first step toward achievement is discovery. You’d be surprised by how many individuals who are unsatisfied with their current employment situation look for their next move before analyzing what possibilities and options stand before them and what their ultimate dream encompass. For this reason, an individual must take some time to do some soul searching and examine what their unique POD’s are before making any decisions on what path they will take to achieve them.

When analyzing one’s possibilities and options, the key is keeping an open mind, especially towards things that you not have been exposed to before or have experience in. That is where the true opportunity lies. Otherwise, you are simply trapped by the definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. When analyzing the options that stand before you, it’s important to look at options that can be used as vehicles to attain your Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity (I.L.W.E.) Goals. This position will ensure that you will be happy with the result of the path you choose.

When an individual works for someone else, whether it’s a billion dollar company or even just a medium sized business, there are many tradeoffs that these employees may have to make. Some people choose to commute to work, clock in extra hours on the weekends or even working overtime to satisfy their company to and to get all of their work done. When you work for someone else, you are foregoing the opportunity to follow your own dreams and instead are spending your energy building someone else’s.

Some of your dreams you may have had since you were a child or maybe new dreams that have formed for you later in life, but no dream is too unattainable. Do you want to have enough money to vacation with your family each year? Do you want to make more time in your schedule to spend with your family and friends? Or is it that you want to be able to retire comfortably when you turn the right age? No matter what your dream may be, franchising should be considered when you are looking for a vehicle to achieve your dream.

Franchising as a Vehicle to Success

Franchising is just one possible option that may stand before you, but it’s important to take a deeper dive into this possibility because it offers many benefits. Franchising is a great vehicle to self-sufficiency because investing in a franchise model enables each individual to move from Employment to Empowerment. Because franchise brands are built upon proven systems and operations, franchise owners will truly never be alone in their business but will rather have a franchisor there to guide them when they need.

Franchising allows business owners to work for themselves but not by themselves, giving these franchisees a new sense of freedom in their career path. Franchisees can determine how aggressively they want to grow their businesses or not. For those who decide to give it their all, there is a direct correlation with the reward they reap – unlike when you are working hard for someone else. Become your own boss and call the shots!

The Entrepreneur’s Source Defines Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, and Equity, to Make It Work for YOU!

Terry Powell, founder of The Entrepreneur’s Source defines Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, and Equity, and how to make it work for YOU!

What is your definition of wealth? Is it endless money? Taking your private jet to your own island in the Caribbean? Having the mall all to yourself for a private shopping spree? Maybe owning a parking garage in the middle of Manhattan just so you will have a guaranteed spot for your car when you want to see a Broadway show?

Many of those scenarios are a bit fanciful (I mean who DOESN’T want to have their own private parking space in NYC?), but the idea is this: wealth can have just as many different definitions as there are people who work for a living in this country. Your wealth dreams probably are a bit more realistic than the ones listed above. Maybe you want that getaway place in the mountains or the beach, or making sure the kids can attend any college they wish, or having enough for a comfortable retirement.

Here’s my definition for what it’s worth: having enough money to do what you want to do, when you want to do it. Pretty simple, right? But it speaks VOLUMES!

Are you listening?

In your current job, is your income moving you closer to YOUR dreams, or do those dreams appear as if you’re looking through the wrong end of a telescope at them? According to the latest Society for Human Resource Management survey, salaries are projected to increase 3% this year – the same as last year and simply not that impressive. Remember, that’s an AVERAGE, so IF you get a salary increase at all, it will likely be minuscule.

What about your lifestyle? Are you living to work, or just working to live? With an improving economy, more American workers are happier, but in a recent poll, more than 95% of workers stated work life balance was very important to them, even more so than salary, benefits, even job security! So, take stock right now: how’s YOUR work-life balance? Do you have more time for family, friends, hobbies, or activities, or do you have less?

Okay, so you’re putting in a lot of time, for an average salary, but do you have any equity in your job? I mean real ownership? Probably not. You are employed, but not empowered. You are making money for others, with little to show for it at the end of the day, except for a paycheck (which could be a corporate decision away from ending), or capped dollars in a retirement plan, which may, or may not be there when you retire.

Maybe it’s time to reassess your Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, and Equity goals, while becoming self-sufficient as a business OWNER, not an employee.

As the visionary founder of The Entrepreneur’s Source® the nation’s leading franchise coaching network, I was recently asked about my definition of wealth by a national reporter. Here’s what I shared with him for his story:

“The Entrepreneur’s Source® first gave me a new opportunity to be self-employed, then became an amazingly rewarding career and now has become my calling. Wealth for me is freedom, satisfaction, and helping others change their lives for the better. We help people re-define Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, and Equity and use business ownership as the vehicle to achieve their own definition of those four words.”

I see my success and the financial rewards of wealth as a by-product of being able to focus on helping others achieve their own success.”

Freedom. Satisfaction. Do those words resonate with you?

They can be yours working with The Entrepreneur’s Source® (TES), to help educate and explore your options for business ownership. TES will not only help you find those options, but you will have your own personal coach to guide you step by step through TES thorough process, to match you with a business opportunity fitting your skill-sets and personality.

I personally invite you to start discovering the path to having greater control over your work life, as well as defining for yourself what Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, and Equity, really means for you.   To take the first step toward transforming your Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity and find your very own franchise match, please visit www.franchisematch.com.
