Like a black cloud looming over your head, a midlife crisis can often arrive for some people with little warning and have lasting effects.


Usually occurring between the ages of 41 and 60, the most common characteristic of a midlife crisis is expecting something negative and stressful is about to occur – often brought on by (or a lack of) work, spousal relationships, or maturing children, as well as the loss of parents or physical changes associated with aging.


Owning a franchise, however, can help many people avoid experiencing this type of crisis by giving them a new sense of purpose, fulfillment, and direction.


Here are the top three reasons to avoid a midlife crisis through franchising:


1. The feeling of freedom is unparalleled. Owning your own business is a liberating experience, and pursuing it through franchising is a secure and safe way to do it. Being a franchise owner will allow you to control your own schedule, hire and manage staff, and determine how much money you make – something many people go their whole life without attaining.


2. Make your franchise your “baby”. Maybe you’ve had kids and they’ve grown up, or you never had the right opportunity arise to have your own. While owning a franchise isn’t the same thing, of course, the amount of joy it can give you will fill your life with a newfound sense of happiness. Working to build it from the ground-up after opening it, you’ll then be in control of how well it does – something you can take pride in for years to come and call your own.


3. You’ll be busy, employed, and in shape. Maybe you’ve had something unfortunate happen, such as the loss of a parent or job. Owning a franchise will help take your mind off these things, and allow you to make new friends and build lifelong relationships, all while keeping you employed in one of the most secure and fast-growing areas of the economy. Even more, you’ll have to be in shape: lots of work needs to get done, and you’ll need the energy!
