If you are at your best when surrounded by home comforts, then you have the option of working from home.
This is a desirable way to work for many and it is becoming increasingly accessible. Here are 6 advantages of becoming a home based franchisee:
1. Reduced costs
Working as a home based franchisee, you can cut the everyday expenses associated with working in an office space. No need to worry about transport costs such as petrol or train tickets or costs associated with eating on the go.
There are also indirect savings such as less wear and tear to your vehicle, less time spent at the dry cleaners or buying expensive office wear. You can decrease your overheads and focus on building a successful franchise from the comfort of your own home.
2. Less stress
Commuting to work, especially travelling through a busy city during rush hour can feel counterproductive and leave workers feeling drained before the working day begins. Working from home will allow you to start you day at your own pace and focus on your business.
3. Increased Productivity
People that work from home are more productive and can achieve almost an extra day’s work compared to those that work in an communal office environment.
If you are a motivated individual with a passion to succeed in the franchise world, then working from home can prove the optimum environment for success.
4. Closer to family and home
Working from home is more convenient, ensuring that you are available if needed for any reason, be it responsibilities to your family or other commitments. Running your franchise from home will allow you to achieve the right work life balance to suit your needs.
You have the freedom to work the hours that suit your lifestyle and you can change the environment to suit your needs. If you prefer to work in a well lit environment and are the most productive at 2am, then both are a real possibility. However you choose to work, it is important to make sure that you are working effectively and efficiently to drive your franchise forward.
6. Keep virtually connected
It is becoming increasingly easy to keep virtually connected with your colleagues, wherever you may be. Working from home doesn’t mean working in isolation. You can email, call, video, text and instant message people all from the comfort of your own home.
