There’s never been a better time to be an entrepreneur. With a thriving economy nearly a decade removed from a major recession and the first wave of retirement from the baby boomer generation in process, more savvy professionals are looking to run their own businesses than ever before.
But that’s not the only major trend in the market: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 40% of the American workforce will be working from home by 2020 – that’s approximately 65 million people.
If you’re one of the growing numbers of people who falls in both of the above categories, it’s time to consider investing in a work from home franchise like Transworld Business Advisors.
In the $4 trillion franchise industry, there’s a lot of movement. Owners are looking to sell, and entrepreneurs – both first-time customers and experienced veterans – are looking to buy and invest.
But when an owner, who has poured their heart, soul, thousands of sweat hours, and potentially millions of dollars into a business, is moving on from their business, they want to sell for the highest price possible. On the opposite end of the spectrum is an eager buyer looking to turn a profit as quickly as possible, so they’d like a ready-made business at a value price.
You can see where there would be a crossroads. Fortunately, that’s where business brokers like our Transworld franchisees get involved. But with just one business brokerage firm for every 1,850 businesses, there’s a huge demand for the service
While there’s more than one way to get into the brokerage business, by investing in a franchise opportunity with Transworld you get the immediate training you need combined with an excellent support staff powered by United Franchise Group that extends for the life of your business.
Plus, our model doesn’t require you to invest in any real estate, so you don’t have to spend any extra money staffing an office or keeping the lights on. You can do everything successfully from home.
About Working from Home
About 40 percent of business brokerage professionals are sole practitioners, according to Business Brokerage Press, meaning they go into the brokerage business on their own. Of those 40 percent, about half work from a home office, per BBP.
By going into the brokerage business on your own, you minimize your financial risk and can learn and grow at your own pace. And with the training and support Transworld provides its franchisees, that risk is mitigated even further.
The most important tools you need are a computer, an internet connection, people skills, and a way to list businesses privately without creating unnecessary and unwanted attention or commotion. As a Transworld franchisee, you are given access to proprietary software that allows you to confidentially list businesses for sale and use other listings from the network to help buyers find ideal companies to purchase.
Of course, you’ll also need a professional setting mainly to meet with clients. And while it’s widely accepted in the industry to work from a home office setting, it sometimes can be more difficult or uncomfortable to bring new and prospective clients into a home setting. That said, it certainly can be – and is – done regularly. As long as there’s a clean, professional environment, you’re good to go.
