If you’re sorting through the various franchise opportunities available and trying to determine which one is right for you, we have one piece of advice: Whatever you do, settle on a franchise model that provides the lifestyle you’re looking for. Because, if you don’t choose the right franchise, something that makes you want to get out of bed every morning, you’re defeating the whole purpose of becoming a franchisee.
Many of the people who become a franchisee have years of corporate experience under their belts, and for whatever reason, they’re ready for a change, a big change. Oftentimes (but not always), franchisees established a successful career in Corporate America before taking the leap to entrepreneur. And during their corporate careers, the aspiring franchisees learned a lot about themselves as a person – what they want out of their careers, and what they don’t want.
As far as selecting the right franchise, it’s important to choose a franchise opportunity that closely aligns with your wants, and not your don’t wants. But how do you find a franchise that fits your ideal lifestyle? One way is to find out what it’s like in the day of a life of a franchisee. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Do I want a brick-and-mortar location?
- Can I see myself opening and closing a business every day?
- Do I want to manage a lot of employees from a store or office building?
- Can I deal with a strict schedule, or am I trying to escape that?
- Would I prefer scheduling flexibility?
- Would I prefer to work from a home office?
- Would I prefer to have the ability to work remotely from a laptop?
- Am I drawn to a franchise that is community-spirited?
Work from the Comfort of Your Own Home
At Tutor Doctor, our franchise model offers scheduling flexibility and the ability to work from home, or anywhere for that matter. You can work at your favorite coffee shop, the park, the library, the beach – you name it! So, if you’re tired of sitting in rush hour traffic, or if you love the idea of working from home, a Tutor Doctor franchise may be exactly what you’re looking for.
The benefits of the Tutor Doctor lifestyle:
- You can work from home or a small office
- You set your own hours
- You have a flexible schedule
- No leases, equipment, or build-out
- There is no inventory
- You get to be involved in your community
The Appeal of a Flexible Schedule
If you’ve been working in an office building for years and dreaming of working from home, you get this one. But for those of you who don’t know about all the “perks” of working from home, we’d love to shed light on some of the advantages of being a Tutor Doctor franchisee, where achieving work-life balance is truly within reach.
As a Tutor Doctor franchisee, you have complete schedule flexibility. Meaning, if you need to stay home with a sick child, attend a parent-teacher conference, go to a doctor’s appointment, or get your driver license renewed, you don’t need to ask your boss for time off to do it. And, your income isn’t interrupted because something came up.
Achieving Work-Life Balance
Achieving work-life balance is a very important benefit that our franchisees love. In today’s world, it can be very challenging (and sometimes guilt-inducing) to build a successful career while focusing on your family, but as a Tutor Doctor franchisee, it’s a lot easier to be there for the ones you love because you’re not spending nine hours in an office every day.
Instead, you’re working from home, taking care of your family and building a business in the process. It’s a win-win from all angles, and one of the most sought-after lifestyles for employees and entrepreneurs alike.
According to globalworkplaceanalytics.com, two-thirds of people actually want to work from home and 36% would choose working from home over a pay raise. Are we surprised? Not one bit. Aside from helping our communities through the power of education, one of the main reasons franchisees are drawn to our model is the lifestyle it affords – scheduling flexibility, the ability to work from home or anyplace else, no commuting, and more time with family.
