• Military Spouse Opportunity: End The Job Hunt Cycle With This Franchise Giveaway

  • Are you tired of looking for a new job with every PCS? Tried other home-based businesses and it’s just not a fit? Maybe you have dreams of owning your own business but there just hasn’t been the right idea or military spouse opportunity.

    As a member of the military community, it can be challenging to find a rewarding career that can actually move with you. Personally it’s one of the reasons I love entrepreneurship. I can shift and pivot despite the crazy military lifestyle. But taking an idea and building an entire business from the ground up isn’t a fit for everyone.

    Another option for those of us with an entrepreneurial spirit is franchise ownership.

    A franchise business is a business that you own and run. The difference is that instead of creating everything yourself, you purchase a license to sell goods or services that have been developed by someone else . In addition you obtain the rights to use established systems along with their business logo, name, and business model of the franchise owner. Franchises are an extremely common way of doing business and very attractive to the novice entrepreneur.

    Sound intriguing right?

    If you have ever wondered if owning a franchise might be YOUR answer, here is an opportunity that you don’t want to pass up!

    When thinking about franchising, people often wonder what the advantages and disadvantages are. Here are a few points that will help you decide what’s the best option for you.

    Franchises offer important pre-opening support: site selection, design, construction, financing, training, and a grand-opening program.

    Franchises offer ongoing support: training national and regional advertising operating procedures, operational assistance, ongoing supervision and management support, increased spending power, and access to bulk purchasing.

    Franchises have a Lower Failure Rate

    The main disadvantage of owning a franchise is that you must conform to the rules and guidelines of the franchiser, which can include location, products, resale and more.

    Being a military spouse ending the cycle of the job hunt is key to reducing stress and reaching our goals. Who knows, you may be able to do both as an owner of an Eventprep Franchise!

    As I browse my social media feeds I notice so many people are fed up and unsure of the direction of their lives. It reminded me of a post I wrote a couple of years ago when my son was stressed about what he would do with his life. Fast forward nothing he even considered was to be his path; life took him in a totally different direction. And it's more than ok not only for him, but for any of us [...]

    Sometimes as we traverse military life it can feel as though we live separately from the outside world. We have our own lingo, we take pride in things others take for granted and our day to day challenges are very different from our civilian counterparts. Because of this we need to build stronger coping skills and hone our self care strategies so that we are prepared - especially for the stuff[...]
