Franchise is dead or let's say not necessary in 2019 if you are an entrepreneur, because you will work tripple to be successful, for the franchise owner, for the tax office and after that for yourself.
Maybe it was an option during the 50ties, 60ties and 70ties, maybe 80ties also, where the economy was booming and it was not easy as a small entrepreneur to get national or global attraction, but in times of internet, social media and easy global entrepreneurship it's not contemporary anymore.
So why paying an annual membership fee of 2 k or 20 k $ for something that is less worth, then what you get from it?
Why paying an additional setup fee of 10 or 20 k $ at the beginning just to be a member of something, that lives from your personality and pro-activity as an entrepreneur?
Why paying a percentage from your annual turnover after you worked successful on projects, that where filled by your work experience?
Here are some price examples from our headhunting industry and old-school networks that still exist around the globe, making you believe with a fancy website, that they are the future of work, but with a business model from the 80ties behind it.
I am not talking about McDonalds / Burger King or Subway franchise, which could make sense to start a career there, if you are a Burger or Sandwich addict. ;-)
At these networks you pay for something, that is less worth or just priceless:
The list could be longer, I know, but I think you understood, what I mean. There is a lot you get from a network of friends, who work and think like entrepreneurs, but there is no need for high membership fees and setup fees to work together as pro-active partners. Paying for that, will not solve the priceless problems ;-), because it's the same like in politics or the EU parliament, you need friends, trust and pro-activity to move something, and experience to deliver excellent quality.
At our BREADHUNTER network we just work together and we do it, because we want and we are pro-active entrepreneurs, who do not need a MAMA telling us, what to do and then paying her for that. Our currency is pro-activity and entrepreneurial team spirit to move something together with our own brands, because we are a colorful network like flowers on the field.
If you have not your own branding, you are also trapped as an entrepreneur by the franchise owner, because they can raise fees after 5-10 years and if you do not accept this, you can start from 0 building a new brand.
For our clients it's not important, they just want us to fill their challenging, global vacancies in fast timelines and with sustainable quality. We do this with our headhunting craft and not with millennial-mass-recruiting and keyword matching methods and we do this as self determined entrepreneurs.
Experience the difference of the BREADUNTER network, as a client or become a global partner without fees and with your global branding. You just pay with pro-activity and your smart mind and business experience.
