“In business for yourself, not by yourself.”
Advancing or simply maintaining a career while also raising a family is a challenge faced by many parents, especially mothers. Most traditional or corporate jobs simply don’t offer the flexibility that makes it possible, enjoyable, or cost-effective to raise a family while pursuing a career. But what if parents could focus on both family and career? The good news is that they can! Today, more and more women are turning to home-based businesses in pursuit of this possibility. Home-based franchises in particular, are especially popular as the franchise model offers owners both support and flexibility — the ideal combination for stay-at-home moms.
One of the greatest benefits of a home-based franchise is that you are buying into a proven business model, and franchisees are not left alone to figure out what to do on a trial and error basis. When you invest in a franchise, the corporate company will typically provide a step-by-step manual, all necessary training and support and will walk you through every aspect of running your business. You’ll also have access to an entire network of other franchisees that can provide support and guidance from their own experience with the brand, making a franchise far less risky than a do-it-yourself endeavor.

As the motto goes in the franchise community, “In business for yourself, not by yourself.” With franchising, you’re never on your own.
The above notwithstanding, we are aware that not all franchises are created equal. There are thousands of franchise brands spanning nearly every industry and sector, each with their own business model and few of them requiring product-specific skills. We are also aware that being a single mom comes with a wealth of skills that do well in entrepreneurship like: multitasking, creativity, managing and/or operating on a budget, and problem-solving to say the least.
If you’re excited about the chance to run your own franchise, let us help you to determine which business model will match your skills and life objectives, and which will offer you the flexibility and support you seek.
