Becoming a small business owner can certainly be lucrative and fulfilling, but it's not for everybody. Some people are simply happier to be the employee, not the employer.
However, if you notice these three signs, it could mean you're ready to take the reins yourself and explore your options as a Shed Boss franchisee selling commercial sheds and other products.
It's on your mind… all the time
There's a big difference between idly thinking about what it would be like to be the boss and giving it serious thought on a near constant basis.
The latter indicates that running your own business isn't just a pipe dream, but a goal you might be ready to work toward.
Taking the plunge into the small business world shouldn't be some whim that pops into your head after a tough day at the office, it should be something you've seriously considered for a long time.
You have a support system
Being the boss doesn't mean going it alone.
In order to succeed, you'll need some type of support system. Whether it be enough savings to weather the bumpy first years that can come with starting a business to the support of your loved ones, you should ensure you have safety nets in place to help you along the way.
Shed Boss prides itself on providing franchisees with the independence they need to run their businesses their way. However, we're also on hand to offer support through things like training and specialised software to make running the business easier.
You're in it for the long haul
Becoming a small business owner isn't a get-rich-quick scheme.
It means putting in the long hours day after day to make your enterprise a success.
While a growing small business can certainly provide you with financial security, you need to go into it with your eyes wide open and a realistic attitude of what it takes to succeed.
