There has never been a better time to own a work-from-home franchise business. The pandemic has pushed more than half of the workforce in the US out of the office and into their homes to work every day, and this is expected to last well into 2021 and beyond.
If you've ever considered becoming a solopreneur and want to know more about owning a home-based business, read on. We've got five benefits of owning this type of business you need to know.
1. Personal Freedom
If you want the ability to work when you want, where you want, and avoid sitting in traffic or having to plan weeks or even months in advance a vacation or a day off, then a home-based business is for you. No commuting, no supervisor to approve PTO or leaving early to pick up a sick child from school or go to a dentist appointment, and no one staring at the clock wondering where you are in the morning if you're running late.
The ability to throw in a load of laundry at lunch, be there for grocery or other deliveries, and not have to worry about rushing home at the end of the day to start dinner cannot be overstated. A home-based business gives you the personal freedom that is difficult to find with most other jobs.
2. More Time With Family
Think about how much time you actually see your family each day when working outside the home. Maybe an hour or two in the morning (if you're lucky) and the same in the evening. Then, consider that those hours aren't necessarily what we'd consider quality time, but rather getting ready in the morning, making breakfast and packing lunches, then cooking dinner, working on homework, and getting everyone ready for bed, are more about getting tasks checked off of a to-do list.
No commuting and the ability to work on your own schedule gives you much more quality time with your family. Hopefully, you'll never have to miss another school talent show or daytime event again.
3. Low Overhead Costs
Because you don't have to spend money on a brick-and-mortar location, the overhead costs for a home-based business are much less than franchises that are run outside of the home. There's no rent to pay, you're already paying for utilities, and you don't have to spend money on parking or gas to commute to an office or other location.
The amount of time it takes to get your business up and running is also considerably less, as is the initial investment to buy in to the franchise.
