But being a TAB franchisee is more than just a fulfilling career; it’s a lifestyle choice. You’ll have the freedom to choose your own hours and work when it suits you best.

Why Franchising Works

Franchising is a great investment opportunity that offers a proven business model, an established customer base, and a lower risk of failure compared to starting a business from scratch.

 By owning a franchise, you can benefit from national marketing campaigns, receive support from other owners, and gain credibility to own franchises of other brands in multiple locations. While franchise fees may require an initial investment, the existing customer base and reputation of the brand can generate profits and attract talented employees. 

With limited options available for low-risk wealth-generating businesses, franchising can be a lucrative investment option.

So why franchise with The Alternative Board?

With The Alternative Board, you have the freedom to build your business according to your goals and aspirations.

Whether you’re looking to establish a thriving empire or seeking a fulfilling job that offers a healthy work-life balance, the choice is yours. As a franchisee of The Alternative Board, you have the flexibility to customise your business to suit your unique needs and preferences.

Here are five reasons you should consider joining The Alternative Board as a franchisee.

Community support is a crucial aspect of the success of TAB owners. As a franchisee, owning a TAB business means being part of a community of like-minded business owners working towards the same goal: helping their members grow and succeed. This sense of community is invaluable and provides several benefits to TAB owners.

For one, community support helps TAB owners feel connected and engaged. Owning a small business can be an isolating experience, especially in the beginning stages of building the business. Being part of a community of business owners who share similar values and goals can help combat this feeling of isolation and provide a sense of camaraderie and support.

Moreover, community support provides TAB owners access to a wealth of knowledge and expertise. The TAB community is composed of business owners and leaders from various industries and backgrounds, each with their unique insights and perspectives. By tapping into this knowledge pool, TAB owners can gain valuable insights and advice to help them overcome challenges and grow their business.

Additionally, community support fosters a sense of accountability and motivation. As a TAB owner, you are part of a network of business owners who are all working together towards the same objective: helping their members succeed. This shared sense of purpose can provide a powerful motivator to keep TAB owners focused and on track towards delivering value to their members.

This support is an essential ingredient in the success of TAB owners. Being part of a community of like-minded business owners helps TAB owners feel connected and engaged, gain valuable insights and expertise, and stay motivated and focused on achieving their goals.

Proven, reliable business model
TAB’s membership model ensures a steady stream of income for franchisees. Members pay a monthly or annual fee to access TAB’s services, which include facilitated peer advisory boards, one-on-one coaching sessions, and a variety of business tools and resources. This subscription model provides franchisees with a predictable and reliable source of income, helping them to plan and grow their business with confidence.

TAB’s business model is effective because it delivers real results for its members. TAB’s peer advisory boards provide business owners and leaders with a unique forum to share ideas, experiences, and challenges with their peers in a supportive and confidential environment. Members benefit from the collective wisdom and expertise of their board members, as well as the guidance of their TAB facilitator, who helps to keep the discussion on track and focused on achieving tangible outcomes. This collaborative approach has been proven to help business owners and leaders make better decisions, achieve their goals, and grow their businesses.

Work-life Balance
One of the key advantages of being a TAB franchisee is the flexibility to choose your own hours and enjoy a better work-life balance. TAB franchisees have the freedom to set their own schedules and work when it is convenient for them. This flexibility allows franchisees to prioritise their personal life and take care of family responsibilities, while still running a successful business.

Being able to choose your own hours also means that TAB franchisees can avoid burnout and maintain a healthy work-life balance. Burnout is a common issue for entrepreneurs and small business owners, and it can be difficult to strike a balance between work and personal life. 

However, TAB franchisees can tailor their work schedules to their personal needs and avoid the stress and burnout associated with overwork.
