Are You a "Parentpreneur?" If So, You're Part of a Growing Trend of Business Owners

As the nation’s No. 1 youth enrichment franchisor, ownership of any of the six business opportunities in the Unleashed Brands portfolio is a natural fit for parents with children. After all, who knows best as to what appeals to kids? This extends to the activities they like, what food, drink, and snacks they enjoy, and – most importantly – what activities they prefer that help them learn, grow, and play. As it turns out, such knowledge may be driving additional interest in using this insight to pursue entrepreneurial ventures. And it’s led to a new term in the franchising lexicon - Parentpreneurs.

So far, there are software platforms designed to serve parent-based entrepreneurs, a couple of interesting books on the subject, an informative website, and even a foundation that helps minority parents create value-driven business opportunities. In this Unleashed Brands blog edition, we’re going to delve into the many reasons why more and more parents are choosing an entrepreneurial life.

Reaching a Breaking Point?

As many stressed-out parents can attest, there seems to be an ever-increasing number who feel as if they’re perpetually at their breaking point. For a majority of moms and dads out there, it’s never been a busier time – especially trying to juggle all the responsibilities that encompass child-rearing duties. There’s school, extracurricular activities, doctors appointments, dental checkups, playdates, sports practices, and club participations. All combined, it adds up to a continual struggle to make sure are kids are not only seen, heard, and valued – but also entertained. It’s one thing to try and fit all this scheduling in for a stay-at-home parent. But for those who work for others and have little control over the amount of time off they can request, it’s nearly impossible.

A Solution Hiding in Plain Sight?

As many overworked and stressed-out parents approach their breaking point, it’s enough to consider how a radical change might be warranted. And choosing an entrepreneurial life like franchise ownership may have always been the solution hiding in plain sight. First and foremost, franchising offers owners the freedom and flexibility to set their own schedules and budget their own time. For many parents, the mere thought alone is liberating. Franchising can offer parents a much better work-balance, as well as other fringe benefits like the elimination of daily commutes and control over their own income-generating ability. Those who’ve researched Unleashed Brands will find that many of our franchise opportunities are designed to bring entire families closer – an extremely common desire for employees seeking an exit from Corporate America. And spending more time with the family almost always plays a prominent factor in career transitions.

What Parentpreneurs Can Expect

Parents who choose to investigate the world of franchising stand to reap many benefits, all with the potential to help them take more control over their busy lives. As an Unleashed Brands franchisee, you’ll be provided with a proven business model to follow, comprehensive training, and close-knit, ongoing support. Our franchisors ensure that their franchisees are in business for themselves, but never by themselves. And parent-owned franchisees can also expect continual assistance from all the other parent owners in the network – literally a built-in support system.

Our platform of brands is designed with one goal in mind - to help kids learn, grow, and play. It’s a role that parents literally undertake the very minute they become parents. If this sounds appealing to you, there’s something else you should know. Your perspective and experience in raising your children can only benefit your effort to become a successful franchise owner. We invite you to explore what’s possible in changing your life for the better as a franchise owner with Unleashed Brands.

Always remember that real change begins with a small step. You just have to be willing to take it.
