The Many Benefits of Owning Your Own Business

Are you happy at work? Although we hope you said “yes,” there’s a good chance you didn’t. According to the Conference Board, roughly 53 percent of Americans are currently unhappy at work. When you consider the fact that the average person spends 2,000 hours a year working, it’s no wonder why more and more people are looking for ways to feel happy, passionate, and excited about the work they do. At Camp Bow Wow, we’re proud to say that owning a franchise gives you freedoms no other job can offer.

1. You’re in control.

Want to take the day off? Think your inventory should be organized a different way? Want to give holiday bonuses? When it comes to making company-wide decisions, you’re the one who gets to call the shots. That’s not to say you shouldn’t consult with other high-ranking employees, but it’s typically you who gets to make the final say.

2. Flexible work hours.

Owning a Camp Bow Wow franchise provides you with the opportunity to pursue other passions because your work hours aren’t the regular 9 – 5 (or really 9 – 6 nowadays), five days a week. Take Kristi Franklin and her husband, Lee, for example. After realizing that retirement was a little too calm for them, they decided to open a Camp. As franchise owners, they’re able to create their own work schedule, meaning they still get a few of the perks of “retired life.”

3. You get to build something from the ground (p)up.

Watching a thought go from your head, to paper, to reality is a pretty incredible feeling. As a Camp Bow Wow franchise owner, you’ll get to watch as your vision becomes a reality. Even better, you’ll get to see wagging tails and eager paws enjoy your creation every single day.

4. You feel passionate about what you do.

Are you working for a purpose or working for a paycheck? Being passionate about your work doesn’t just make your job easier, it makes your entire life better. In fact, a pet franchise has even been known to reduce stress levels. Since leaving his job as CEO of a major hospital and joining the Camp Bow Wow Pack, franchise owner José Morillo now says his life couldn’t be better!
