Your dream franchise is waiting. Be Stronger than your Excuses!

What are your excuses?

What are your excuses for not opening the franchise you have been dreaming about for so long? I’ve heard many of them, as a matter of fact I wrote a book on it “Franchising Without Fear”.

The number one reason is FEAR although many people don’t want to admit it. They use excuses like:

  1. No time
  2. I don’t want to fail
  3. My corporate job is more secure
  4. I won’t know what to do
  5. My spouse/partner won’t let me
  6. Where do I start?
  7. I can’t decide
  8. and on and on it goes…

Identifying the excuses you are using to stay stuck will go a long way in helping you work through your concerns and begin to step out of your comfort zone. By identifying your roadblocks in the beginning, you will help ensure they don’t come up at the very end and derail your plans. Make a list of every excuse you are using to stop you and on the other side make a list of how you can get past the excuses. This list can go along way to head off your concerns. Remind yourself that your dream franchise is waiting for you to get started.

To accomplish great things, you have to take action

To accomplish great things, you will have to do new things, and failure is part of business and life. One of my favorite inspiring entrepreneurs and author, Marie Forleo says, “Anyone who accomplishes great things in business and life is bound to ‘fail’ along the way. Feeling like a failure is a natural part of becoming a success. It’s actually a good thing and means you’re taking action and putting yourself out there.”

Success comes from a deep desire to be in business and an intrinsic motivation to help others

Remember that success comes from a deep desire to be in business and an intrinsic motivation to help others. Motivate yourself by learning as much as you can beforehand and eliminating excuses. Create a no-excuses action plan with concrete steps to see yourself to completion and don’t forget to give yourself timelines for completion, otherwise you may procrastinate which can become an excuse on its own and create missed opportunities.

Work with a franchise consultant to eliminate your excuses

Easily eliminate the guesswork and save yourself time and frustration by working with a professional franchise consultant. As one myself, I will take an unbiased look at your interests and create a detailed profile based on your preferences. Also, a consultant will provide a great deal of information and guidance through the franchise investigation process. A franchise consultant will give you alternatives you may not have considered, giving you more chances to make the right choice and will help you eliminate your excuses.
