There is no doubt that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the way people live and work.
While countless Australians have lost their income during lockdown periods, many of those lucky enough to be able to keep their jobs have had to make a switch to working from home.
While challenging to get used to, many people have now grown accustomed to working more independently and enjoy the work/life balance that working from home provides.
Now that restrictions are easing across the country, you might be questioning whether you want to go back to the daily nine-to-five grind.
Are you sick of the hours-long commute that you used to face to get to work each day?
Have you enjoyed being able to manage your own time more effectively than you could in a stressful office environment?
If you are one of the many Australians considering a career change in 2022, it’s time to reassess your goals and values.
Launching a career as a franchisee with Jim’s Group could allow you to have the life and career that you have always dreamed of.
By doing some research and planning now, you could be set to embark a completely different and exciting career in the new year!
Be your own boss!
There are untold benefits that come with being your own boss. Everything that you earn, you keep. You are able to set your own hours, you plan your own day, and you make the decisions. When you work for yourself, YOU are the boss.
But many Australians who dream of shaking off the corporate drudge are afraid of going it alone. And that’s completely understandable. When you start a new business from scratch, it can be tough to support your current lifestyle and family until you build up a clientele.
That’s the reason why franchise opportunities in Australia are the key to small business ownership success.
- Franchises combine the independence of small business ownership with the benefits of an extensive business network.
- You don’t need business experience to run a franchise – you are supported by franchisors who train you to operate your business successfully.
- Franchises have a higher success rate than start-up businesses, making franchise ownership an excellent opportunity for people with financial obligations like mortgages and car repayments.
- You may find it easier to secure finance for a franchise. It may cost less to buy a franchise than start your own business of the same type.
- Franchises have an established reputation and image, proven management and work practices, access to national advertising and ongoing support.
So, what kind of small business is right for you?
Are you outdoorsy?
If you love being out in the fresh air and a little rain and cold doesn’t bother you, your new career might be outdoors! Escape the four walls of your office and enjoy the freedom of working outside. You might consider:
- A lawnmowing or gardening franchise that offers your clients gardening services such as lawn maintenance, hedge trimming, weeding, pruning and gutter cleaning.
- A pool cleaning franchise – because if you don’t mind cleaning swimming pools, you’ll find there are many Australians who hate it!
- A bin cleaning franchise where you professionally sanitise and restore council bins, domestic bins and commercial bins.
Are you a qualified professional?
If you are already a qualified professional with a wealth of experience, you might not be interested in leaving your current field. A franchise opportunity can offer you valuable work/life balance and the satisfaction of being your own boss without making a complete career change.
Franchise opportunities exist all across Australia if you are already skilled in the following areas:
- IT computer services;
- Property conveyancing;
- Real Estate; and
- Car mechanics.
…and many more!
Do you love animals?
You might not have considered that you can have a rewarding career when combining your work ethic with your love of animals, but you can!
Pet lovers can look into franchise options that include:
Are you looking for an outside-the-box career?
If your current work feels boring or unstimulating, you might be looking for something fun and completely outside-the-box.
There are many varying franchise options to suit different areas of interest, opportunities include:
Do you have an eye for detail?
If you have a natural eye for detail, you could easily find a new career that uses your natural abilities.
You could consider launching a new business opportunity in one of the following areas:
