Last week my children's school made a big deal out of Groundhog Day. In the movie Groundhog Day, Phil, played by Bill Murray, gets stuck in an ever repeating loop. Each day he awakens to Sonny and Cher singing "I've got you babe" on the local radio. Online speculation about the movie has Phil stuck in this loop for anywhere from 10 years to 10,000 years. He finally breaks the chain when he learns how to add value into other people's lives and can see the bigger purpose in life.

Are you stuck in a Groundhog Day scenario? Do you wake up each morning, head out to your car for the hour long, traffic- filled ride to work, walk into a building that houses someone else's dream, only to feel like you are in a spinning hamster (or groundhog) wheel, working hard and getting nowhere?

Or do you work from home, content with your commute, but wish you could take time off to attend your son's school play during the day, or take off early on Friday for that Valentine's weekend in the mountains, without feeling like you are being deceitful?

Are you tired of feeling like you are capable of earning so much more money, but knowing that your next raise will be limited to 2% of what you make now?

Maybe it is time to get out of the Groundhog Day loop. Maybe it is time to add value to your life by controlling your own destiny through business ownership. Maybe it is time to have a bigger purpose.

Franchise ownership is a great way to make that step out of your comfort zone, because it gives you the opportunity to be a business owner, but still have guidance towards success. There are home-based franchises, multi-unit retail franchises, and Area Development opportunities in every industry imaginable! Give me a call, and we can spend some time discussing your particular goals, and get you out of that Groundhog Day loop today!

Yours in franchising,
