Some of us grab that bowl of ice cream, for a short-term fix.

I’ve talked to several candidates lately who’ve been laid off, passed over for that well-deserved promotion or can’t find the job they want because they feel the hiring process is broken.

Some of them did grab for the ice cream. Not long after, the desire to discover other options brought them to me. They wanted to feel a sense of control and to do something positive about their futures.

Taking action, when it comes to your career choices, can raise your spirits AND put you on the path to a new future. So much has changed over the last several years. You may be looking to explore your career options through channels outside the ordinary options.

According to the International Franchise Association:

  • There are 775,000 franchise establishments that support nearly 8.2 million direct jobs, 
  • They contribute $787.7 billion of economic output that goes into the U.S. economy, 
  • That represents 3% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

The franchise industry is expected to continue growing in 2023. If you are interested in exploring how that growth may represent opportunities for you, I’d love to discuss it with you.

Starting your own business can feel like a daunting task. Investing in a franchise with systems and tools in place to make your life easier might prove to be the right fit for you. Contact me today at (925) 642-9976.
