Leave the corporate world behind and enjoy some of the benefits of working from home

Leave the corporate world behind and enjoy some of the benefits of working from home Many of Auditel’s franchisees want to leave the corporate world behind and build a business for themselves. They’re tired of commuting, working long hours and not having time spare for the activities they enjoy. Owning a franchise eliminates all of these elements and, an Auditel franchise allows franchisees to build a business from home.

Auditel is the UK’s pioneer of strategic cost management. They assist and educate clients to make smarter buying and management decisions, leading to business longevity and growth. Franchisees become invaluable, outsourced board level members of the companies they serve.

If you are considering leaving employment behind and build a business for yourself, to Start a franchise from home is an excellent option that many take because it lowers the initial business start-up costs. There is no need for staff or office premises, so working from home can help you to increase profitability quickly.

Here are 5 of the many benefits of working from home:

No commute

The average daily commute for a UK employee is 75 minutes. That’s nearly an extra working week per month. Many franchisees choose to open an Auditel franchise because it can be run from home.

Cutting the commute is one of the biggest benefits of working from home. Working from home gives you much greater flexibility and, without the time spent commuting, you will find that your productivity levels are increased.

You can then use this time to focus on the activities you enjoy and having a much better lifestyle.

“MY main reason for joining Auditel was that I didn’t want to commute anymore! When I started the franchise, my three children were very young and I wanted to be around more for them. I wanted to be in charge of my own destiny!”

Chris Bourke, Auditel franchisee.

Flexible working hours

Another huge advantage of running your business from home is that you are no longer tied to normal working hours. As long as you complete the work, it can be done at a time to suit you. If you need to take an afternoon off, you can work in the evenings to make up the time.

Running a home-based Auditel consultancy means you can take back control of your life and set yourself free from long and unpredictable working hours. And because you’re working for yourself, every hour you put into your business will be rewarded as an investment in your own business.

“I enjoy the flexibility of being able to take time off if I need to and being able to take holidays when it’s convenient for me, although I’m always in touch with colleagues and clients,”

Gillian Gibbon, Auditel franchisee.

Low overheads

Working from home cuts the costs of office space and the bills that come with it. This means that you are more likely to become profitable sooner than if you were to operate from an office premises.

Not only does working from home give you personal flexibility, it will also provide you with flexibility in your business. When operating from an office space, your business capacity is limited to the office. Working from home allows you to hire more or fewer staff or work longer or shorter hours to suit your business operation.

Less risk

Running a business from home takes much less investment and once your business is up and running, it’s cheaper and easier to maintain than a separate business location. Plus, you can expand and decrease as is required by your workload.

You can gradually grow the business from home and build a reputation in your area. Should you decide to expand, you’ll know that you have a large enough customer base to allow you to cover the costs of expanding to business premises.

A better lifestyle

You will be able to enjoy a much better lifestyle when these other benefits take effect. With no commute, you’ll have more spare time and, being at home, you can be around your family on a much more regular basis.

Many of our franchisees fit their working hours in around the activities they enjoy and visiting children at important school events such as sports day and school plays.

Running an Auditel franchise will help you to achieve both business and personal goals.

“Giving up a lucrative job when you have a young family is a big decision and I knew I had to get it right. So, I sat down and made a list. It was a list of personal goals, such as wanting a change of lifestyle, wanting to take control of my own destiny, wanting to spend more time with my family and so on. I still look at this list from time to time, just to make sure I don’t lose sight of why I’m doing what I do,”

Daryn Dodge, Auditel franchisee
