Entering the battlefield of business ownership can be extremely enticing, especially for those who are caught in the so-called “cycle” of working a job. Consider this, though: without careful and concise planning, you will encounter more problems than you need to. You don’t go on a trip before deciding your destination; you plan first. Take some time and plan it out—you can find your success through “hand-picked” opportunities. You have to combine opportunity with planning to create not only a return on investment, but a rewarding experience. Think long and hard before diving into any franchising or business opportunity endeavor, and find your success.
It’s true that we’re one of the most reliable franchise alternative opportunities under $10,000. However, you also have to think about the fact that this is a product that needs to reach consumers in some way. You won’t be building these machines on your front doorstep or in the bank. You have to give just as much thought to where you’re placing your machines and making them worth your time, as you did when you made the leap to change your life in the first place. Time is everything.
Think about it this way. There are 365 days in a year, which equals 8760 hours in total. If you go hard, and work 12 hours a day, every day in the year, that’d be 4,380 hours that you could work every year—this is unrealistic. You’re going to need some time to relax Let’s say you can put in about 8 hours a day. That comes out to 2920 hours, or units, a year that you can extend yourself. Once these are gone, your year is too. And this doesn’t account for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. You need a work/life balance, which will cut into this time even more.
Don’t you want to make sure that you use each of those units as effectively as possible? We think so.
This is where “hand picking” your opportunities comes into play. Pound the pavement. Find some franchise owners that have found success in the past and find out how they managed to achieve that. Find out where the best places are. Understand that your time is limited and you need to make the most out of it.
Go visit some locations and get a feel for them before assuming your ice cream vending machine business will thrive there. See what people are doing. Think about the areas where your business can benefit the most. Beaches, malls, shopping centers, movie theaters, major stores and big restaurants are all big ringers for a location, but you have to learn about that location more—do people have easy access to ice cream already? Are people bringing their kids around there or is it primarily an older crowd? There’s a lot of questions you can ask yourself and a whole lot of introspective thought you need to do before the answers will appear.
