Learning to drive a car is a big milestone, but getting behind the wheel can come with a lot of fear. Thankfully, as you’re learning to drive, there is often a professional driving instructor next to you coaching you on how to be a safe driver. Going into business for yourself can bring a similar set of fears.
If you decide to go with a franchise, instead of trying to train yourself on how to run a business, there is someone there to coach you along the way. At Primrose Schools, many of our Franchise Owners make the transition from the security of a corporate job to the fulfillment of being a hands-on business owner that is on site and makes a difference in the lives of families and communities every day. The key? They’re not doing it alone.
Learning at high speed
When you jump behind the wheel for the first time, the power of the engine propelling your car can give you a feeling of helplessness and lack of control. You constantly wonder if you can stay in your lane, avoid being hit and stop in time. Higher speeds increase the risk, but no one wants to always be in the slow lane. Owning a business is similar. When you first open, you feel like everything is moving at the speed of light. You try to guide your business in the right direction and not make any mistakes.
Primrose Schools requires all Franchise Owners to go through several weeks of training to drive your business to success. There, you will learn how to evaluate your community, market your school and keep an eye on your competitors. Primrose Schools Franchise Owners also learn about our exclusive Balanced Learning® approach and how everything fits into a business model that gives you a sense of purpose.
Indicators and measurements
In the car, you are surrounded by instruments that give you feedback about the performance of your vehicle. Lights will illuminate if you are low on oil, overheating or almost out of fuel. Ultimately, these signals help you make better decisions on what needs to be addressed immediately.
The Primrose Schools business model has been proven for over 35 years. We have key indicators that help you understand your business and make corrections along the way. Our School Business Consultants are also working alongside you to guide you on what those signals are telling you and how to adjust your direction.
Once you mastered the art of driving a car, you appreciated the freedom that came with it. The safety and comfort of the vehicle gives you confidence, and the ability to travel provides opportunities you would have never known. The vehicle becomes a resource for you to get where you want to go.
Owning a Primrose school can provide you with that same feeling of independence. The support from the National Support Center gives you confidence. Primrose Schools Franchise Owners find a sense of joy and accomplishment from being such an integral part of the growth and education in their communities.
If you’re interested in driving your own success to become a Primrose Schools Franchise Owner, schedule a call with our team and learn more about the path to becoming here.
