They say that successful career growth begins with goal setting. This begs the question, “Have you considered entrepreneurship as a career growth strategy?”

You’re not alone! The United States added 4.4 million new businesses in 2021, and of these, about 79.7% small businesses only employ the founder. Starting as a solopreneur is a great way to begin, but you need a strong foundation and access to resources to scale and grow in your field

Organic growth is the slowest and most risky way to grow a business. It is also the most expensive because you end up repeating mistakes others have already solved. Have you considered franchising? There is an option in almost every sector of the economy!

Let’s talk about three things that might sound spooky and challenging at first, but the fastest way to get you started with your entrepreneurial. ambitions.

Make yourself uncomfortable

It’s time to stop saying “someday” and start saying “today”. To achieve growth and success in any business, it’s important to get out of your comfort zone and take the plunge. For some people, this means applying for a dream job, and for entrepreneurs like you – it is starting your own business. For others who are prepared to take a leap of faith, it’s an opportunity to be their own boss and start building wealth for you. Once you decide to take control of your future, consider the various options to get started. Franchising is an excellent option to jumpstart your entrepreneurial journey.

Establish your brand in the meantime

While you are deciding on starting your business, begin by establishing yourself as a subject matter expert in the industry you want to service. Share your unique insights and provide helpful resources to build brand value. Legitimize yourself by publishing articles or thought-leadership papers. Build your expertise with peer and co-author technical papers relevant to your future customers.

However, instead of doing all this alone, consider jumping on the coat tails of an established and growing franchise. The collective branding and marketing power of a franchise network can leapfrog your market entry.

Grit, Grind, Grow  don’t stop now!

There is no need to quit your job just yet. Most entrepreneurs start their journey while they were still employed.  Learn everything there is to learn about your industry and future client base. It takes grit and hard work, but growth is in your hands. Invest time in researching your options, decide, and take a chance. Entrepreneurship is about taking chances. If you go in with the right mindset and foundation, all you must focus on are the treats!
