Is Becoming a Junkluggers Business Owner Right For Me?

If you’re researching owning and operating a Junkluggers franchise and feeling a bit nervous, congratulations! You have a higher level of business acumen than many of your peers. (Ever wonder why so many businesses fail? Because their owners don’t think critically!)

Rule Number One for Assessing Franchise Business Ownership:

Think and ask a lot of questions.

Anyone who rushes headlong into franchising without researching the opportunity is breaking the first rule of successful entrepreneurship: acting without thinking. Becoming part of a franchise is a huge decision, and you must measure the opportunity against your current life situation.

Start by asking: Are you happy in your current job? Do you make enough money, have enough free time, and feel secure in your financial future?

Then, Imagine yourself a year from now. Will you be happy one year from now in the exact same place with the same boss, surrounded by the same people? Where do you want to be one, five, ten, and even twenty years down the road? Write down your goals, and ask yourself what it will take to take to put yourself on that path. Change, including business ownership, involves risk, but is also the only way to real opportunity.

Rule Number Two for Assessing Franchise Business Ownership:

Assess where you are now, and where you want to be one, five, ten, and twenty years down the line. Then, make a plan to get yourself there.

Moving forward in life always involves a certain amount of risk. The questions playing in your mind (and that your dubious relatives keep pestering you about) must be answered:

  • Am I an idiot for leaving my current job?
  • Will I enjoy being a business owner?
  • Do I have what it takes to make this business a success?
  • Will I make any money?
  • Is this the right franchise for me?

But here’s the great news about becoming a Junkluggers business owner: we have answers to all your questions, and we don’t want you to become a franchisee until every single one of them is answered. Sure, you’ll be taking a calculated risk. But one with a proven business model with first class marketing support, a team of dedicated professionals devoted to your success, and the power of a proven brand behind you every step of the way.

Whether you decide to stay in your current job or take the plunge and become a business owner is up to you: There are advantages and disadvantages to both scenarios. But ask yourself this question: are you happy with the status quo, or ready for change, adventure, and the opportunity to sail your own ship with the assistance of a first-rate crew? Whatever you do, don’t stay stuck where you’re not happy. Make a decision to seek positive change. Investigate owning a Junkluggers business. We’ll help you determine if it’s the right fit, not just try to bombard you with a sales pitch.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
