It is natural to sometimes think that you are not reaping the rewards of your hard work. You may measure it up and find that the effort might not be worth it for so little incentive, whether that be not enough money, morale or something else. The long hours and responsibilities can be draining, but there is a viable solution to this: franchising.
If you are growing tiresome of your current job and are looking for something more rewarding, you may see the benefits in franchising. Working for yourself. Being your own boss. Sounds like an attractive prospect, doesn’t it?
Staying in a job that does not fulfil you can have a detrimental effect on your physical and mental health. A study from Lancaster University and Manchester Business School found that unhappy employees are more likely to suffer from “emotional burnout, reduced self-esteem, anxiety and depression”. Committing so much time and effort to something you would rather not be involved in; after a while, it will begin to grate on you, so those results come as little surprise.
If you feel unfulfilled, and you are lacking the motivation to go to work more and more as the days go by, or you continuously can’t focus, or you zone out during meetings, then it might be time to consider your options. It’s not worth the potential consequences it can have on your wellbeing and confidence.
It might be time to ask yourself “could I earn my worth elsewhere?”. You may research other companies and it may all look rosy on the face of it, but it might not be quite what you imagined. Fear not though, as there may be another working situation that would be beneficial to you…
Many of NIC’s blogs mention that franchising provides benefits of freedom that many other jobs cannot. Franchising means you can operate on your own terms, taking the shackles off and allowing you to truly earn the money for the work you put in.
This can be an excellent form of motivation, encouraging each franchisee to agree to as much work as they can manage, and therefore increasing your revenue. Otherwise, your business will suffer and you may end up earning even less than in your previous position.
This point also applies for working hours. The opportunities to measure up a healthy work-life balance can improve your time management, and if you delegate tasks to your team, you will not feel overworked for little reward.
With more time for you to focus on the development of your business as a franchisee, you will also receive training that will help you get the most out of your job. The ongoing support leaves franchisees more time to focus on obtaining work and bringing more money in.
A mixture of support from your franchisor and your willingness to work will see you through, helping you to earn what you believe you should be earning, whatever form that may come in.
As one of the UK’s leading providers of commercial cleaning and support services, NIC will use its experience to help those who are up to the challenge. By allowing you to be your own boss, you hold the keys, all whilst benefiting from NIC’s ongoing support, mentoring, training and advice.
