Thinking About a Career Change? Don’t Let These 3 Myths Stand in Your Way!
We know that many people out there feel less than satisfied with their current jobs. They’d like to make a career change, and are looking into clothing franchise business opportunities, but are nervous about getting started. We understand that change can be scary; but it can also be good for personal growth, good for your professional life, and good for your bottom line. Let’s take a look at three common myths that surround the idea of a career change, and how an Apricot Lane franchise opportunity debunks them.
Myth #1: You Can’t Make a Living doing Something You Love
When folks dream about changing careers, more often than not, they want to do so because they’d like to make their livings doing something they love. That being said, a lot of these same individuals believe they can’t realistically support themselves and their families pursuing a career that they’re passionate about. At Apricot Lane, we know this simply isn’t true. Many of our franchisees have turned their “passion for fashion” into satisfying and rewarding careers, as they curate their boutiques with unique inventory and cater to the needs of their communities. We believe our investment opportunity is made for people who want to work at something they love. So, if you’re someone who has an interest in fashion and pays close attention to trends in that industry, clothing franchise business opportunities might be perfect for you.
Myth #2: Changing Careers is Too Risky
Perhaps the biggest myth surrounding a career change is that making such a move is risky. We know nearly all change carries with it a certain amount of risk, and opening a business, especially from scratch, is no different. But one of the best benefits of investing in an Apricot Lane Franchise is the access you’ll get to our proven business model that lays the groundwork for success and takes a lot of the guesswork out of running your boutique. When you become part of the Apricot Lane family, you also get immediate access to our proprietary Operations Manual that details all the procedures and operations you’ll rely on as you grow your business. We can’t guarantee you’ll succeed, but we can promise you that access to our decades-long experience and expertise can help lessen your risk and improve your chances for success.
Myth #3: You Need to Be a Seasoned Entrepreneur
Oftentimes, when a person decides on a career change, they worry that they don’t have the experience or the know-how to make the change a successful one. After all, a person needs more than the drive and desire to succeed; it helps to have help. We know this, which is why we make sure all our franchise partners receive thorough training and support before, during, and after they open their boutique doors. Home, classroom, and on-site training will prepare you for your new role as a boutique owner, and our continued support will keep you up-to-date and prepared for the challenges and rewards that lay ahead.
