Ways That a Traditional Career Can Prepare You to Be a Franchise Owner | College H.U.N.K.S.® Hauling Junk and Moving

If you are used to a traditional career where you work set hours each week and have a clear outline of tasks, you may be wondering how that relates to franchising.

While the corporate world may seem miles away from being the owner of a moving franchise at first glance, there are actually quite a few similarities—and you will probably find that your career experience has made you extremely prepared to own a franchise with us.

How a Traditional Career Can Help You in Franchising

You have experience with company culture. Having a positive company culture is one of the most vital things for business owners to invest in. Even if you have not had experience in creating a company culture like you will with your franchise location, your traditional roles have certainly exposed you to various company cultures that can help you determine what things do and do not work to motivate employees.

You have already developed time management skills. Being adept at time management is crucial to most traditional jobs, as well as owning your own franchise. You have likely learned a lot about managing tasks, projects and responsibilities in your role in the traditional corporate world, and now is your chance to apply all of these aspects to your entrepreneurial adventure.

You have experience working as a team. Teamwork makes the dream work, as the famous saying goes—but it is really true! Whether you have been in a management position and have managed a team or have just worked alongside one to complete a project or task, you have likely learned a lot about collaboration and working together, which is an essential skill for franchisees.

You have learned about your passions. Experience is a fantastic teacher, especially when it comes to career development. Your past jobs have likely taught you a plethora of things about where your passions, strengths and weaknesses lie—and now you can harness all of these elements to find the perfect franchise opportunity of your own.
