Most of us have worked in a job that lacked meaning at one time or another. Even if it paid well, it left us wanting more. I fell into this category as a consultant in a previous job. The absence of a solid business model and clear purpose made it challenging for me to be passionate about my work. I quickly learned that while having an unfulfilling career is a universal story that most of us can relate to, it doesn’t have to be this way!
One of the things I always talk about with potential Primrose Franchise Owners is that with any business venture, you want to ensure you’re going to make money; we get that. But Primrose Franchise Owners also have daily opportunities to lead and serve beyond the walls of their schools. They have what many of us search for in our careers: personal and financial fulfillment and the power to influence positive change.
Here are a few ways that Primrose Franchise Owners find meaning in their careers on a daily basis:
Making a difference through high-quality early education:
Is there anything more fulfilling than equipping future generations with the foundation they need to thrive? One of the best parts of owning a Primrose school is that you’re guaranteed to make a difference every day – and those dividends extend to families, your community and the world. And demand for quality early education and care is only growing. According to Child Care Aware of America, there are approximately 14.9 million U.S. children under the age of 6 who potentially need child care.
Supporting parents and families:
It’s not easy being a parent; everyone has an opinion on how you should, and shouldn’t, do things. This “information-overload” can weigh parents down. Primrose Franchise Owners help to lighten this load by serving as trusted partners in children’s early education and arming parents with the tools and support they need at home.
Serving local communities:
For most careers, community involvement takes place outside of working hours, which means less time spent with family or on other priorities in life. But for Primrose Franchise Owners, giving back is part of their daily activities.
Fundraising and giving events are built into the Primrose Schools approach. For example, every November each school participates in our annual Caring and Giving Food Drive benefitting local food banks and shelters. While the purpose of the food drive is to give back while helping children learn and practice generosity, parents, teachers and Franchise Owners are equally as excited to participate.
You can have the best of both worlds.
A financially rewarding career can also be one that’s full of meaning and purpose. Primrose Franchise Owners are change agents providing the critical, in-demand service of early education. They are filled with a sense of purpose because ownership opens the door to so many other opportunities to lead and serve!
