Remembering Your “Why” When Things Get Tough

Owning a business isn’t for the faint of heart. And while becoming a franchisee takes some of the stress and risk out of the game, it still comes with its ups and downs. There will undoubtedly be moments where business is slow, expenses pile up, or you’re dealing with personal problems while trying to keep your company afloat. The unpredictability of business can get to you if you’re not prepared, and the most successful entrepreneurs are the ones that have practiced their resilience and stay focused on their “why.”

What is your “why?” This is the core reason why you are doing what you do. This is the essence of your values, driving you to action each and every day. Your “why” is what keeps you going when the going gets tough. And it’s a great idea to get very clear on this concept and keep coming back to it. 

Many franchise owners like to write down their “why” and place it somewhere they’ll see it every day- on their refrigerator, above their desk, on their car dash, etc. The more often you can tune in with this inner motivation, the better.

Ask yourself, why did you want to open your own franchise to begin with? How does it add value to your life? What about this work are you passionate about, or what is the best part of your workdays? What are you working towards, long-term? What do you wish to leave as your legacy or mark on the world? How does this business allow you to grow as a person, make the world a better place, or provide for your loved ones? 

These are great reflection questions to get you started, as you clarify your “why” for what you do. In the ebbs and flows of business, there is always opportunity. When you stay connected to your “why,” you can see the silver lining in every situation.

3 Ways to Turn Your Franchise Into a Family Business

When you are your own business owner, you have the opportunity to build something great for yourself, as well as leave a legacy for your family. Many franchisees love to include their family members in their work and pass on the business to siblings, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other loved ones. If you dream of working alongside someone you care about, someone you can share your successes with, then it’s time to make your franchise into a family business. There are a few different ways that you can do this:

 1. Invest together

If you know from the outset that you want to build a family enterprise, you can pool your resources for the initial franchise investment. Whether that is combining cash, or signing business loan documents together, this is an easy way to establish a partnership for the long haul. We see this happen with siblings, spouses, parents and children, and more.

2. Give kids their first work experience

If you have children, this can be an easy way to pass on your business and getting them involved early is key. As they grow up, they will see your entrepreneurial spirit, and the exciting parts of what you do. Then, when they’re old enough bring them on board officially giving them a great initial job experience. They’ll learn priceless business skills and competence, making it easy to make them an official partner or sell them your franchise down the road.

3. Build a family franchise network

When you have several members of a family that are passionate about the same things, or want to get in on the same benefits, but perhaps live in different locations, it’s possible to each own a part of the same brand. If you open a DecoArmor Designs franchise in your town, and your brother does the same in his town, you can both learn from one another and support each other along the way.

It’s easy to make your franchise into a family affair, and we welcome this level of commitment! Get in touch today if you want to learn more about our current business opportunities at DecoArmor Designs!
