You – and Your Business – Can Have a Lasting Legacy!

Choose to make the world a better place, for their future!

Many people, like you, choose to start their own business to create a legacy for future generations. As business models and franchise brands continue to focus on what matters most, this month consider our kids, pets, and environment. We all want a better future – take steps now for yours and theirs – by starting a business that can be both fulfilling and financially rewarding.


Oh, how we love our kids! They are the future generation, and franchise brands fill the needs that parents have. From traditional preschools, full daycare centers to half-day Montessori curriculum schools. Others have drop-in programs for parents who want a few mornings or afternoons each week, while others are faith-based with traditional values. Then, if that’s not your scene, think of all the enrichment opportunities: from sports, music, and chess, to math, science, and art. Let’s not forget the “get outside and be active” entertainment programs that can be offered after school or incorporated into a birthday party!


Even though I don’t have any pets, I can’t forget the fur-babies people have in their family. Pets are an essential part of so many families, and there are always new opportunities in pet care. Franchised brands offering daytime pet sitting and walking, often cost less to start up. Or there are grooming boutiques with specialty retail product lines, or luxury boarding, pet resorts with a higher investment level.


As you might now be thinking how nice it would be to work outdoors, there are many “green industry” brands available. Consider businesses focused on horticulture, landscape design, or caring for lawns, trees, and shrubs. We are starting to see “the future of farming” with hydroponic systems in small towns nationwide creating access to fresh, locally grown foods. Fitting into other sustainability-focused brands are solar, wind and electric car charging businesses, offering design, sales, installations, and maintenance.

Learn more about future-focused industries and what you would like to do next. You will find the right, earth-friendly, pet-focused, or kid-centric opportunity. Start now. Your future (and theirs) begins today.
