As females, we are continually presented with conflicting information as to how fair or otherwise the expectations of us are. From reports that state equality is ever improving and women can have it all, including a family, a career and a home life that benefits from shared workload; to reports that state that actually, not all that much has changed since the 70’s.
Whatever the truth of the matter, it’s quite obvious that many women struggle with a healthy work life balance, with many reporting guilt at having to go back to work following giving birth. So what’s the answer?
Well, many women are taking the plunge with their own businesses, with an increasingly popular choice coming in the form of franchising. So here we take a look at just what franchising could mean for the modern woman and whether we really can have it all.
Franchises have never been so varied; today, there are literally thousands of exciting opportunities that await, and with so much choice you are bound to find a perfect package to suit your skillset.
The following three franchise businesses are perfect examples of how women are having it all and seeing the success that they didn’t think possible whilst still achieving a healthy work-life-balance.

Whilst the benefits of becoming a franchisee are wide and varied there’s no escaping the fact that to truly reach a stage where you have financial freedom as well as optimal work life balance, you need to put into plenty of business building effort filled with long days and late nights.
