Kevin and I talk constantly about starting our own business. Everyone we know who is largely successful has done it. It’s a lot of work, but we feel if we’re going to work hard, it might as well be for ourselves. We’d be invested in what we’re doing in the day to day more than ever before.
There are many franchises out there in the food and services industries. With many of the ones we’ve looked into, millionaire status was a prerequisite. Sorry, we’re not there just yet – but that’s what we’re striving for. As a former marketing professional, I’ve learned that the businesses you want to be involved with are need-based ones. People will always need food and healthcare but not necessarily hohos and botox. If you’re selling a thing, it should be replenish-able necessity.
Of all of the businesses we’ve looked into, I have to admit that we never thought of a haircutting franchise. I guess we assumed that we’d have to be stylists to go into a field like that. Not true, apparently. SuperCuts franchise owners come from all backgrounds and walks of life. Instead of haircutting, you will hone your skills at:
- Recruiting a strong staff
- Establishing ties to your local community
- Selecting and implementing marketing plans
- Building income by executing company strategies
- Empowering employees by delegating responsibility
- Working with Regis to ensure the growth of your company
- Providing vision and accountability for operational excellence
It’s also a thriving business in good times and bad. You never hear about people ditching their haircuts in a bad economy, not entirely anyway. Value cuts are where its at. And let’s face it – this is one business that won’t become obsolete. I mean, I wouldn’t trust a machine to cut my hair, would you?
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the SuperCuts Franchise.

I get my hair cut there and they do a great job. I had never thought of the business end.

That’ s a good point. Hair doesn’t stop growing ever, so you’d always have jobs :)
