I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit, though I never really pursued that until I became a mom. Wanting to have the flexibility to spend time with my family when I wanted pushed me to take that next step.

It has been a long, slow road finding what works for me, but today I’m very happy and content working for myself. I can’t imagine my life any other way, and I definitely can’t imagine working for someone else at this point.

If you’re in the early stages of trying to figure out a business that would be a good fit for you, take a look at Supercuts. Did you know they have a franchise model? This means you can own your own business, but have a brand name that is very recognizable. In addition, with franchises your business is backed by national advertising and a strong web presence so you’re not trying to build something from the ground up.

And, unlike many business models, the hair care industry is stable. People don’t just want haircuts; they need them, regardless of their financial situation.

At this point, you may be sitting there, looking at the screen, thinking, “But I’m not a hair stylist.” You don’t have to be one to own a Supercuts. A licensed professional performs all services, so you won’t ever need to cut hair. Instead, you will run the business.

Some other benefits of owning a Supercuts franchise are that you don’t need a ton of staff, inventory costs are low and hours are reasonable in comparison to other franchise industries (e.g., automotive, child care, fitness, food, etc.).

This is a great idea–just be prepared for the responsibility and time requirements that come with owning a business. Also make sure to be aware of certain state and local permit and licensing requirements, as well as annual report and possible initial report requirements. There’s a lot to know when it comes to running a business that is not a sole proprietorship. For example, since you will have employees, you’ll need to obtain an EIN and distribute the proper tax forms to employees. Be prepared so you’re not caught off guard.

I think the franchise model is a good way to start out with all the marketing material and in place ready to use, with a trusted name brand behind you. It does have some restrictions that you don’t have with a personal business, but a lot of the grunt work is already done, which is definitely appealing.
