Retirement can be a thorny issue for many professionals who have lived and breathed their work for so many years. On the one hand, you feel like you should be able to step back a bit and enjoy the fruits of your hard work with time to yourself, time with your kids, holidays and hobbies. On the other hand, the uncertainty of the loss of income can be an insurmountable worry for some, while others don’t know if they can face living without the career that they’ve worked so hard for. Owning a franchise in retirement is a great way to address both of those issues at once, giving you a purpose in retirement as well as a great income source that will ensure comfort in your twilight years. Here’s how:
It Can Fit Around Your Schedule
Many people would like to wind down the number of hours that they work as they approach retirement, but not all employers or industries are comfortable with the idea. Owning a franchise for retirement allows you to set your own hours, with the amount of time you work determined only by the amount of money you’d like to earn. Thanks to our cloud-based software, owners of a Time For You cleaning franchise typically find they can effectively manage their businesses in just a few hours a day.
You Can Grow Your Nest-Egg
Keeping yourself busy in retirement is one thing, but what about investing in your future too? Owning and running a cleaning franchise can actually be a serious earner, with many franchisees commanding up to and above six figures. This allows you to keep working at your own pace, in the knowledge that you’ll be readying yourself and your children up for comfort in future. You can even sell on the franchise when you have built it up, earning you a bonus that can set you up for the rest of your life.
You Can Make It Your Own
No matter what your day job has been historically, owning a cleaning franchise doesn’t have to mean a departure from the job you know and love. The beauty of being a franchise owner is that you have complete control to go your own way, and to bring to bear all the skills you have picked up in your career so far to be the best in your area. There’s no cookie-cutter approach, and a diverse range of skills actually makes you more likely to succeed in the business.
If you’re dreading the long, tedious days of retirement, there is a better option: owning your own franchise. Pick up the phone to Time For You today and we’ll get you started on your path to success!
