If you are considering buying a franchise, you know that many opportunities are out there. Taking this exciting next step in your career will require reflection on your goals and values. It is important to consider the overall culture and value system of the franchise company you want to join. While you will be a business owner and entrepreneur, you will still be bound by the rules and culture of the franchise organization. This makes it important to ensure you are choosing a franchise whose values align well with yours.
How to Find Out if a Franchise Organization Aligns with Your Values:
- Make a list of the most important values in your personal and professional life. When researching a potential franchise company, compare your list to theirs.
- Get to know the mission or vision statement of the franchise organization you are considering. This is the first step to discovering their stated values and goals.
- Consider how the daily operations of the business will align with your values. Will this business inspire and motivate you, even when things are not easy?
- Consider your overall goals for lifestyle and income. Will this franchise provide the income you need? Will it allow you to work a schedule that fits well with your lifestyle?
- Get to know the corporate support team and some successful franchise owners within the network. These are the people you will rely on as you start your business and learn the ropes, so make sure you will be able to have a positive, trusting relationship with them.
