This Season, Give Yourself the Gift of Entrepreneurship

Ah, December…it’s finally here. The last month of 2022 has arrived, a time of holidays, celebrations, togetherness, and gift-giving. When it comes to gifts, most believe that it’s better to give than to receive – at least for most people over the age of eight, that is. This year, it’s a safe bet that you probably won’t get everything you ask for – nor should you expect to. But it has been said before that the best gift you can give is one for yourself.



What kind of gift are we talking about? This season, we’re talking about giving yourself the gift of entrepreneurship. You may have always considered becoming your own boss at some point in your life. Or circumstances may have finally dictated the need to consider a career transition. Regardless of where you stand, if you desire a life more entrepreneurial, you can get there from here. Here’s how to begin thinking like an entrepreneur…


Determine Your True Passion

Have you ever wondered if you’re currently doing what you were meant to be doing at this stage in your life? Do you feel fulfilled? Happy? If not, it may be time to reinvestigate whether or not you’re following your true passion in life – whatever that may be. The beauty of franchising your way to business ownership has everything to do with the fact that there are literally thousands of business models to choose from. All you have to do is find the right one that ignites your passion. Then, you can determine whether or not you’re a suitable candidate to pursue the opportunity on your own terms.


Introduce a Little Risk in Your Life

You may have played things safe up to this point in your life, and perhaps that’s worked out for you. But at some point, there comes a time when you should introduce a little risk in your life. There’s nothing wrong with taking a chance once in a while – just to discover something different, something unique. Each and every day, FranNet of DFW & Oklahoma works with candidates who’ve made the decision to take the proverbial leap of faith, grabbing for the brass ring. Ever heard the phrase, “with high risk comes high reward?” Well, there’s only one way to find out.

Imagine a Goal-Oriented Future

Setting measurable goals goes to the heart of thinking like an entrepreneur. It means you’ve moved beyond mere wishes and daydreams, to establishing something more concrete. One of the easiest exercises you can do to affect change in your life is to create SMART goals – goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, results-focused, and time-bound. For example, follow this link for a hypothetical exercise in SMART goals and imagine what yours will look like. Then, invest in a notebook and put those thoughts down on paper. If and when you set a no-cost, no-obligation appointment with FranNet of DFW & Oklahoma, be sure to bring them with you – we’d love to review what you’ve put down.


When you begin to think like an entrepreneur, you’ll begin to act like an entrepreneur. But it’s not supposed to happen overnight. It takes both time and patience to affect change in your life, so keep everything in perspective and above all else – manage your expectations for this deeply personal journey. At the core, this is an exercise that can reveal both personal and professional growth. It’s nothing to be scared of, so embrace change for the better and see where it leads you in a few short months. Once it sticks, you’ll be ready for the next phase of your entrepreneurial future, outlined below in our call to action.
