Today, inclusivity is an important goal in the business world. Because we honor the contributions and accomplishments of women the world over during the month of March, it’s important that we take a few moments to shine a light on how the world of franchising can provide opportunities to women that might not be available through other avenues within the conventional business world.
Flexibility in terms of deciding on your own work schedule is one reason women and men look to the franchising world. Not only is there an established business model and path to success to adhere to, but there are also generally different options for the level of involvement you want. For women who face the challenge of balancing careers, children, and extracurricular activities, the aspect of making a schedule that perfectly adheres to their priorities is an excellent way to achieve a better quality of life. Depending upon the industry or type of business you choose to franchise, you may be able to work from home or structure your workday to align with other obligations where you need to be physically present.
While the sexism and classism that’s always existed within our society have gradually been peeled back during the past few decades, we still have a very long way to go. There’s no denying that the double standard in the business world still exists, as well as the limitation of opportunities for advancement and employment in the public and private sectors. Franchising provides opportunities for female entrepreneurs that might not be available in other areas. Studies have determined that female business owners are often better educated and equipped than their male counterparts to handle the rigors of the business world. With the absence of a corporate ladder to climb, all franchises are on equal footing and responsible for their own success, as compared to the corporate world where the glass ceiling still exists.
When it comes to entering the business world, there are a significant number of challenges that come with starting on the ground floor. Franchising not only provides financing when you first launch, but you have a business model that’s proven successful in the past. This means that you have an existing strategy to follow and one that you’ll be able to replicate with training from the franchisor.
At FranSave, we believe in presenting entrepreneurs with franchise opportunities that meet their needs on all fronts. As a consultant network, we pride ourselves on providing equal opportunities for all. To find out more information on a variety of opportunities, visit us at fransave.com.
