Employer vs. Employee Mindset. Which One Are You?

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

Have you ever wondered why some people own businesses while others prefer to work there? Maybe you have thought about owning a business before, but you are not sure it's the right move for you. It all starts with your mindset. Employers know an opportunity when they see it and have the commitment and courage to go for what they want. While opportunities come with obstacles, employers figure out how to overcome them to reach their goals. Why? They embrace the challenge and know that difficulties in life separate the achievers vs. the dreamers. Employers don't shy away from hard work and are willing to do whatever it takes to succeed. They know success comes with financial security, control of their schedule, and a better lifestyle for them and their family. Employers also understand that delegation and employee development are critical to their ability to work on the business vs. in it. Employees tend to maintain the status quo and are not usually comfortable taking risks. They see challenges as insurmountable obstacles vs. opportunities. Employees may have thought about business ownership before but lack the desire to step outside their comfort zone and pursue it. They perceive a job as security and would rather be comfortable than pursue their dreams. What about you? Where do you fit? Are you content letting life happen around you, or do you want to be the person making things happen? Most importantly, are you ready to pursue your dreams vs. continuing to build someone else's? Franchising can be a great vehicle to transition from employee to employer. Franchisors provide the business model, training, branding, and proven operating system. You provide some capital, hard work, and passion, and together you could be an unstoppable team. If you are interested in learning more about business ownership, give me a call. I'd love to hear your story and help you figure out if franchising makes sense to pursue.
