Maybe It's Time for a 'Me Change'
25 Sep 18
You've heard of a 'sea change' and a 'tree change' - well, at V.I.P. we’ve coined a phrase that we think applies to many of our franchisees who are making a transition from different types of work because they’ve decided the career they’d signed up for was not at all worth it. They find that becoming a V.I.P. business owner is a very welcome change from too many hours and too much stress. We call this a ‘me change’.
From 100-hour weeks to 6 hours a day!
One of our home cleaning franchisees, Mark Palmer went from working 100-hour weeks in the corporate world to working just 6 hours a day in his franchise - and he’s making the same money. Even more importantly, he can now be there for his family. Mark had this to say,
‘It means that I can be there for school pickups and their sport and I’m more present than I ever could be in my previous work. I feel like I have taken control of my life and I feel like I can breathe again.’
Our franchisees love the flexibility
Of all the things our franchisees love about their work, ‘flexibility’ is the word we hear most often. You can choose your workdays, choose your hours, and even take holidays! Because when you go on holiday, another V.I.P. franchisee will take care of your customers while you’re away.
That’s something that business owners are just not used to, and our franchisees love it. It means they can go on holidays and really relax and enjoy — without worrying about what’s happening back at home.
V.I.P. franchisees come from all walks of life
Of course, we have people who’ve come from lawn mowing or cleaning jobs who have lots of these skills already. But you may be surprised to know that many of our franchisees come from completely different work environments, just like Mark, and want a change to something completely different. Or they just want to get their life back.
It really doesn’t matter if you have the skills or not
At V.I.P. we won’t just shove a lawnmower or mop at you and send you on your way. The V.I.P. training system is designed to take you from start to finish and you’ve got plenty of support whenever you need it.
Maybe your 'me change' starts here
If it’s high time for you to think about what’s going to make you happy and time to reassess your work-life balance, becoming a V.I.P. business owner might be just the thing. We’d love to hear from you so why not give us a call on 13 26 13 to have a chat and find out more.
