For decades you’ve dreamed of the day when your morning commute was reduced to the distance between your bedroom and your home office. The day when business attire was a t-shirt and shorts. The day when going to lunch meant a quick run to the fridge.
I’m talking about working from home.
As a franchise consultant who does in fact work from home, I can assure you it can be a wonderful experience. Even better, many of the franchise brands I match candidates with are run from a home office. However, it’s important to understand that just because you work from home, it doesn’t mean you spend your entire day at home.
A work-from-home franchise is one where your business is home-based, but your daily operations take place outside the home, selling or delivering on your goods or services. This encompasses franchise businesses such as lawn care, window treatment, commercial cleaning, b2b consulting and home restoration.
Now, you’ll certainly have days where you don’t leave the house. In fact, lots of the people will schedule days each week to just work at home doing administrative work or making phone calls. With that in mind, you’ll want to have an area of your house set aside for that home office.
So is a work from home franchise a good fit for you? If you get excited at the prospect of spending your day in motion while regularly meeting and talking to people, a work-from-home setup would probably be preferred.
