You want to go to work for yourself. You want to be your own boss. You want to help people. You’ve likely experienced a situation where an aging parent, spouse, or other individual needed support throughout the day. This might have gone on for several years or maybe a few months. You began thinking about what it could be like to own a home care franchise.
Running a business is a lot different than being an employee.
There’s a reason why the vast majority of workers in the United States and around the world basically look for jobs provided by others, including individuals and companies. They know just how much it takes to run a business. Well, they might not know, but they assume it’s a lot more time, energy, and risk, so it’s more prudent to simply punch a clock and be able to go home at the end of the day and relax.
If you are looking to own a home care franchise, it’s a great business.
If you have true passion to help others in need, if you understand the importance this can provide to those who may begin struggling with their physical abilities as they get older or who are recovering from injuries and other disabilities, that’s a great start.
As for the main question here, it could take many, many hours to successfully get a home care franchise up and running. That doesn’t mean you will be working 80 to 100 hours every single week for the rest of your life. No, business owners deserve to have time off, but the investment of time and energy, also money, will be far more significant during the first couple of years than any other time the business is operating in the future.
Plan to put in at least 50 to 60 hours per week, if not more, in the beginning.
A successful business owner does not simply go home at the end of the day when there are pressing issues needing to be addressed. They stay and work on them. That may require phone calls, emails being sent out, letters answered, or certification tests to study for.
There may also be extensive hours interviewing potential caregivers, running a background screening check on them, finding ideal employees to help with administrative tasks, and so much more. However, as the business gets up and running and things slide into routine, the number of hours the owner will have to devote to this business will decrease. With a quality franchise, the challenges and sacrifices of the business owner are significantly less than they might be for a different independent company.
