In Redundancy, There’s Opportunity

Losing your job may seem like the worst thing that’s ever happened to you – but it could turn out to be one of the best.

Because while it’s unsettling, it’s also a chance to do something different. Something better. Something that sets you up on a different path, one where you’re in control of your finances and lifestyle.

If you’ve been made redundant, or expect to be, you could swap your old routine for a new life as your own boss, in charge of your own future, and generating wealth for yourself instead of someone else.

But while you may have long-harboured a dream of running your own business – or simply have a burning desire for more control after redundancy – it can be daunting going from employed to self-employed.

So instead of starting from scratch and tackling the hurdles that new business owners face, a franchise gives you access to the tried and tested: there’s a proven business model, established systems, a brand that customers already know… and support on every aspect of running the business, from head office support staff as well as your fellow franchisees.

At Signs Express, the latter means having over 60 other business owners, just like you, to share challenges, experiences, highs and lows with.

And before you open your doors, you will have received comprehensive training on everything from marketing and sales to operations and business planning. We’ve been helping people into business for over 30 years, so you can take comfort in knowing that’s the level of support behind you!

That’s why you shouldn’t limit your thinking or ambition to your CV: with franchising, you don’t need prior experience in an industry to become a successful business owner. Only a handful of Signs Express franchisees had previously worked in the signage industry. Rather than experience, what they had was passion, ambition and the commercial vision to see the opportunity this business offers.

There’s a reason that franchisees stay in our network, on average, for more than 15 years – and to date, none of them have made themselves redundant!

In the emotional rollercoaster of redundancy, take some time to consider if franchising could be the right next step for you. You may never go back to employment again. For more information, contact us today.
