Corporate jobs don’t allow you freedom or control at work, and there are repercussions that extend far beyond the 9-5. Investing in a lawn maintenance franchise with U.S. lawns will change your life in too many ways to count. Here are 4 of the biggest impacts owning a franchise will have.
#1 You Don’t Have to Do Things You Don’t Want to Do
Tired of traveling every week? Bored of sitting at your desk? Annoyed at a micromanaging boss? Tired of having your ideas ignored? Becoming a business owner means you don’t have to deal with those things anymore because you are the boss.
It might sound trite, but as a business owner you get to be in control. Gone are the days of clocking in and out to do the same job every day. Owning a lawn maintenance franchise comes with a new daily challenge to keep you excited and interested in your work.
#2 You Have Influence
At U.S. Lawns, we believe in the importance of making a difference in our communities. As a business owner, you will have influence in your community by creating jobs, maintaining relationships with business owners in the area, and beautifying the city’s landscape. Small businesses are important to the local economy, and as your business grows you will be able to create more jobs and have a bigger impact on your city.
#3 You Can Find Work-Life Balance
Probably the greatest thing about being in control of your lawn maintenance franchise is that you have the freedom to find the perfect balance for your work and life. Traditional corporate jobs have inflexible schedules, making it difficult to do things like picking your children up from school. Even something like running an errand to the bank or DMV, which are only open during regular business hours, can be difficult if your only option is to go at lunch time.
But the balance you will find as a U.S. Lawns owner is so much bigger than the convenience of running errands. You will have a greater ability to make time for the important things like your family, friends, and loved ones. Making your own schedule gives you the freedom to be there when it matters without having to answer to anyone else.
#4 You Are Investing in Yourself
Chances are you have spent a lot of time working on other people’s businesses or goals. Putting in the time and effort to help a boss or a corporation accomplish their goals can be draining, especially when you aren’t valued like you should be. Owning a lawn maintenance franchise means that every job you do, every employee you hire, and every contract you sign is for you.
Surely you have had a career that has paid your bills and given you a comfortable lifestyle. But at the end of the day, those are not the things that matter most. Owning a U.S. Lawns franchise pays your bills in addition to giving you greater satisfaction knowing that you are working for yourself, your family, and your community.
