It is an age old problem faced by generations of working mums… just how do you juggle school holidays with a pressing career? And how do you balance a career with child care arrangements? There is then the overwhelming guilt that associates with this!
This conundrum is one that has plagued mums who are set on having a successful career since women entered the workplace post World War, and for all too many it still remains an issue. However for the female franchisee the world of work can be decidedly different:
So with such an ideal opportunity served up by franchises to working mums, we wanted to expand upon the many benefits that being a franchise owner has both over the school holidays and beyond.
1. You can work as and when you decide
Depending upon the franchise in question your business would have a wide range of tasks that can fit around you.
This would include practically all of the tasks involved with running an online, service based business, such as No Letting Go and BrokerPlan, whilst physical premises franchises (such as a shop based franchises) can benefit from in-shop staff, so you can focus upon your child during the holidays, as well as actually growing the business when your child is in school.
Securing that holiday during term break time is sometimes not as easy as it should be within paid employment. Owning a franchise can, on the other hand, provide for holidays that are taken as and when you decide. You do of course have to appreciate that the first 12 months may well be holiday free (and filled with business building late nights and early mornings), but thereafter you should be home free to make the most of the school holiday times.
Many franchises that are specifically based around providing child care services (such as Razzamatazz Theatre School) can serve to both entertain and look after your child throughout the holidays.
Having your child with you can really enhance the working experience and polish your services as you gain feedback from them.
Balancing work and home life isn’t easy. And as research consistently shows females still tend to bear the brunt of home chores, in addition to their working day.
