How to Become an Entrepreneur Without Doing All the Work

Entrepreneurship can sometimes seem like an exhausting, draining job. And that’s because it is! There are lots of ways to explore your entrepreneurial options without having to commit completely.

Here are some that you can try.

Go in With a Business Partner

Having a dependable business partner can make all the difference in the world. You have someone else that you can rely on. Someone else who can take half of the financial and logistical responsibility. Someone to bounce ideas off of and someone who can double-check your assumptions. You, in turn, can be that source of support for them. It means a different kind of environment entirely than being an entrepreneur alone.

You won’t struggle nearly as much to separate your personal and professional life since somebody will be there to take care of the necessities when you are busy with family. Overall, just about every aspect is better with a partner – although you will have to split profits.

Invest in a Franchise

Investing in a franchise removes a lot of the initial difficulty from the initial task of starting a business. You don’t have to worry about a business plan. You also don’t need to think about branding, advertising, or coming up with protocol related to the everyday goings-on of the business. On the other hand, you will have to pay a franchising fee – which can range between a few thousand dollars and several tens of thousands of dollars. And that’s just the beginning.

You will also need to pay a percentage of your profits to the company. The amount depends on your franchise. Also, banks and credit unions will feel more comfortable lending to a franchise.

Start Small

Entrepreneurship isn’t always difficult meetings, business suits, and sixty-hour workweeks. Anytime you take financial initiative yourself, you’re being an entrepreneur. That means that your business can be on a scale that works for you. Certain businesses, after all, are easier to manage than others. Single-person companies are a great example of this. Being a sole repairman, tutor, or food cart worker means that you are an entrepreneur. It also means your business is easier to deal with in terms of logistics, taxes, and so on.

Entrepreneurship is never easy. But you can avoid the elements of it that can be overwhelming. Being an entrepreneur means sacrificing boundaries that nine-to-five workers legally have. It also means big financial risk. That’s why it might be best to try a slightly different route.
