Age is no matter in franchising
It is amazing the number of people from the older generation who stick with a job that they do not like simply because they have been doing it all their lives.
These people go to work with no motivation or passion for what they are doing and then they wonder why they are not happy.
But the truth is that there are so many choices out there for these people. It’s just a case of having the confidence to change what you are doing and make a completely fresh start.
Some people think that franchising is not an option unless you are a vibrant youngster but that’s simply not true and a lot of older candidates offer qualities that younger potential franchisees simply don’t have.
There is no ageism in franchise opportunities because most franchisors will recognise that while younger people have a fresh approach to the business, the older candidates can offer experience, contacts and instincts. So you will find that a lot of franchisors will make use of this perfect mix of skills and will employ a good range of ages.
It is important to remember that no matter what age you are, there is plenty you could offer a franchisor. So take the plunge and see how your life can change in franchising.
