IS 2018 THE YEAR YOU BECOME A FRANCHISE ENTREPRENEUR?

Happy New Year!  One of the top questions I was asked in 2017 is should I go the startup route or purchase a franchise, so I thought I’d start out 2018 addressing that. The first step is to determine if you would make a good entrepreneur, and then consider if franchising is the right path to becoming a business owner. Sixty-five percent of Americans want to be their own boss. Let’s face it, a lot of us think we’re smarter than our bosses, so being our own boss is a natural desire. An entrepreneur is defined as:

  • “One who pursues opportunity beyond the resources currently controlled”
  • “A person who sees an opportunity and creates an organization to pursue it”
  • “A dreamer who attempts to turn an idea into a profitable reality”
  • “Anyone who assumes the risk and responsibility for starting and managing a business”
  • “Anyone who takes the risk of starting a business for the purpose of making a profit”

However, there are certain cities that are home to more successful women than others. SmartAsset looked at 100 cities in the U.S. and based on their percentages of full-time working women with annual incomes of $75,000 and up, women business owners and women over 25 with bachelor’s degrees and ranked them. They also factored in housing costs as a percent of full-time working women’s earnings, median earnings for women working full-time and the unemployment rate of women aged 25 to 64.

Weeks ago, residents of Ward 8 faced off with managers of the Maple View Flats development on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in Southeast for lack of neighborhood engagement in the project’s development.

For two consecutive days, the protesters sent workers home, shutting down the development worksite they said they were kept off of due to the construction company’s lack of hiring within the ward.

At a recent community meeting, Ward 8 Council member Trayon White bought the parties together to figure out how to move forward.

Residents remained laser-focused on finding employment opportunities within the $50 million development.
