Achieving 20-20 Vision with Semi-Absentee Business Ownership

For many people, owning a business has been a lifelong dream. They have wanted to experience the challenge of building a company that could give them control over their destiny, freedom, and flexibility in their life and an opportunity to build wealth.  Unfortunately, even when there are a strong desire and passion, that dream seems to be on hold. Leaving a seemingly secure full-time job is too risky or financially, family… the timing is just not right.  Whatever the reason might be, the Franchise Industry may have a solution for you.

Many franchise companies have developed systems that allow franchisees to be part-time while their proven managers run the business on a full-time basis. Semi-absentee ownership, or Semi-Passive ownership, typically opens Multi-Unit or broad territories that range from three to five or more stores.

Investors can keep their job and generate additional sources of income. The successful passive franchise owner keeps their primary day job and personal lifestyle that fits the needs of their family and interests – by hiring proven managers to manage the daily operations of the business. The Investor stays focused on scaling the company into a Multi-location or Multi-territory enterprise. The franchisor offers robust technology, operational systems, and “Support” for you and your team to execute in your community. With a modest investment of resources upfront, your future franchise should deliver relatively hands-free, income for the right investor. The most valuable asset the owner brings is the ability to manage and motive a team! As the business grows and gains profitability, they can choose to remain in their career or join the business full-time.
