SOUTHBURY, CT--(Marketwired - Apr 11, 2013) - While job reports are looking better due to increased part-time employment, it's no doubt that a new set of rules have been created in this New Career Economy® for those looking to build a professional future for themselves. An oversaturated workforce and lower paying job positions are pushing many to ride the wave of the economy's recovery by becoming self-sufficient.
"Today's career economy is plagued with uncertainty, forcing many to pave a new path for their professional career," said Terry Powell, CEO and founder of The Entrepreneur's Source, North America's leading career and franchise business coaching company. "The best way to predict the future is to create it yourself. In fact, studies show that 75 percent of the adult population desires to be self-sufficient rather than working for somebody else."
More and more are pursuing entrepreneurship through franchising as a viable means to take hold of their professional and financial futures. In fact, a recent report prepared by IHS Global Insight for the International Franchise Association cited there were a total of 746,828 franchise establishments in 2012. According to the report, franchise growth in 2013 continues to have a strong, positive outlook as it attracts individuals from all walks of life who are ready to "fire their boss and hire themselves." These individuals have realized that they no longer have to rely on an employer to determine their self-worth and success -- reaching their dreams and how they get there is completely in their hands.
"For budding entrepreneurs who feel they don't have the necessary knowledge or experience to start a business on their own, franchising offers a comprehensive, entrepreneurial blueprint to set them off on the right foot and position their new businesses for success," added Powell. "A franchise can be a lucrative vehicle to entrepreneurship because it combines the many benefits of business ownership with a brand name, experience and proven operating system provided by an established franchisor."
With franchises now in industries such as food service, retail, business-to-business and more, there are a myriad of business opportunities. Putting the time and resources into completing the research is crucial to cut through the clutter and find out what really makes sense for the individual entrepreneur. Qualified franchise business coaches offer valuable direction and legwork, and use a guided approach to finding the right franchise opportunity that meets desired Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity goals.
Powell added, "When choosing a franchise business to invest in, a business coach can help you navigate through the choices and save you from serious mistakes, helping you choose a fulfilling business that will positively change your life, long-term."
