Everybody's different, and that carries over into their working lives. While some people may be predisposed to running their own business, for others it might not be the right fit.
The following are three warning signs that selling custom designed sheds as a Shed Boss franchisee may not be the right choice for you.
Building isn't your thing
Shed Boss is not a turnkey franchise. We provide our franchisees with the freedom to operate how they see fit. At the same time, this means the best franchisees already have experience in the building industry.
It's one thing to learn about construction from a book or training course, but having your own builders licence is even better.
Of course, not being a builder yourself doesn't have to be a deal breaker. You could always partner up with someone who has a construction background and focus more on the creative and marketing side of the business. But at the end of the day, having a passion for building should be a primary factor.
You have the zeal but not the strategy
Of course, being passionate about something isn't the same has having a plan in place.
Just because you're excited and willing to work doesn't mean you can jump in with your eyes closed and wish for the best.
A successful business requires forethought and smart strategy. If creating a plan for your business and keeping track of all the details doesn't sound like you, being the boss may not be the right fit.
You give up easily
Running a business can definitely be rewarding, but it's also hard work. This is especially true when first getting a business off the ground.
If you're the type of person who is discouraged easily and ready to give up after the first bump in the road, becoming a small business owner probably isn't the right move.
