Top “F” Reasons It’s Great to Be Your Own Boss

top-5-reasons-to-be-your-own-boss-1We’ve all heard the phrase “it’s good to be the King.”
That’s because as the boss, you get to enjoy the rewards of your own decisions and hard work. If this sounds like a role that fits you, take a look at these reasons many people choose to start their own business …
► Flexibility.
Being the one in charge comes with the ability to work when you want. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean you can get away with working just a few hours a week. After all, someone is likely still counting on you to pay the bills. But it does mean that you can create a work schedule that fits into your life schedule. Maybe you need to get the kids to school in the morning or get yourself to class at night. Whatever you’ve got going on can fit into the mix when you’re calling the shots.
► Family.
This is something we hear more and more as the reason for wanting to be a business owner. Whether you’re looking for an opportunity to spend more time with your family or create a business to pass on to your kids, family is a top priority with entrepreneurs everywhere.
► Finances.
It’s no secret that owning your own business is one of the best formulas for financial independence. As an employee, you may be the hardest worker, but at some point you are tapped out on how much money you can make in the company. But when you own the company, revenue opportunities are endless. Give yourself a “raise” whenever you want by signing new clients, maximizing profits and managing your business like a pro. The opportunities don’t stop when you’re the owner, because you decide your financial goals and put a plan in place to make it happen.
► Freedom.
Imagine being able to take vacation whenever you want. Imagine working in the morning and using the afternoon to go golfing, without having to ask for permission. That’s the freedom of business ownership. When you run a successful business, you have the freedom to do the things you want to do, when you want to do them. Work when you need to, and enjoy the freedom to take-off too.
► Franchise.
Starting your own business is a whole lot easier thanks to franchise opportunities. These companies have already developed proven strategies, business practices, and systems for success. From training to support to customers, franchise companies get you going and support you for the long-run. Look for a franchise company that has been in business for a long time and has a track-record of success. Also, choose a stable industry such as commercial cleaning. This is an industry that is in constant demand, offering cleaning services that all businesses need each and every day. A new, trendy franchise concept may look appealing, but trends do fade. Choose a business that fits your needs and has the potential to create long-term success.Interested in learning more, or ready to take the next steps?

Winning Advice for All Franchisees

jani0king-crown-clubEach month, we are proud to present Jani-King’s Crown Club Winner, the franchise owner who signs the largest amount of new business in the previous month. But just how do they do it? From outstanding customer service to accurate account bidding, Jani-King franchisees must be at the top of their game to beat out the competition and earn new business. This month’s Crown Club winners, Shawn and Carrie Huget from Lafayette/Lake Charles, LA, give us their best advice for signing new accounts and growing their Jani-King franchise.

Five Key Tips for Signing New Business:

1. Relationships; building relationships is key in selling accounts. The customer has to know and trust you.
2. Persistence; sometimes, making the sale takes a long time. Don’t give up. Keep at it, keep visiting, keep strengthening that relationship.
3. Referrals; referrals are extremely valuable. Have your current customers help you grow. Ask them for a letter of recommendation.
4. Industry knowledge; know what you’re selling. Be able to answer questions customers may have.
5. Good attitude; this is probably the most important attribute. A smile and a nice word take you a long way.

Congratulations to Shawn and Carrie Huget, this month’s Jani-King Crown Club Winners!
