Life as a Fosse Healthcare Franchisee

When considering a franchise it’s a good thing to know what you as the franchisee will actually be doing in the business on a day to day basis. We would like to give you an idea of what that looks like and also what you can expect the journey will be like in getting your business going.

Franchise owner’s role in the business.

franchiseSome franchisees will start their business as a single-person operation. Others may choose to start in partnership with another person, perhaps even their spouse or life partner. At Fosse Healthcare we believe in the principle of starting with the end in mind. This principle helps in making decisions based on where you plan to go rather than where you are now. As part of this we will assist you with completing an organisation chart for your business based on what that organisation chart will look like when the business is generating the revenues we would expect after 5 years. On the first day you start trading your Fosse Healthcare franchise your name will be in every box on that organisation chart. If you have a partner working with you then you will have two names to share between the boxes. In other words you’ll be doing everything.

The heart-beat of any Fosse Healthcare business is sales and person-centred recruitment. As you grow your business you may want to bring in some support to help keep you focussed on these two crucial aspects of the business. Ultimately the main things that the franchisee(s) will be doing are recruiting high calibre healthcare workers and creating and developing relationships with clients. There are lots of other things that will need to be done in your business, not least taking and fulfilling orders. However these two key areas of selling and recruiting are so important they to be delivered by the franchise owners. This means in practice that you will spend a lot of time on the phone and in meetings and interviews. This is why great people skills are so crucial to your success in your Fosse Healthcare business.

The kind of journey you can expect as a franchisee

kind-of-journeyGetting a new Fosse Healthcare business off the ground is hard work. We will assist you with clear action plans, but you will most likely have to prime the pump hard for a few months before you begin to see much traction with your business. It is essential that you are 100% focussed on this. We will not allow franchisees to join Fosse Healthcare who cannot give 100% of their time and energy to their business. This applies just as much to the first few months as it does later on in the business. It’s a real challenge to hire healthcare workers when you have no work for them and it’s hard to sell your staffing support services when you have no people to fill shifts. This is a dilemma we’ll help you with, but it does require intense focus.

Once your business is properly in motion it will be a 24/7 operation. You will need to ensure your customers can contact your business and get service at all times. This means taking calls in your evenings, early morning and at weekends. You will need to be willing and able to adapt your life around your business. This will affect hobbies, family time and holidays, particularly in the first year or two. As it grows you may choose to bring people in to your business to assist you to enable you to strike a good work-life balance. For the first 12-18 months however you need to be prepared to be completely consumed by your business. If you choose to consider this Fosse Healthcare opportunity further we will explain this in more detail when we meet with you. Don’t forget there are some great earning opportunities at the other end of the relatively short journey associated with getting your business started. That’s why we strongly believe in the principle of starting with the end in mind. If you can visualize your outcome then you can apply yourself more enthusiastically to the short term challenges of getting your business going.

After 18 months or so your business should be growing strongly and you will be well-established and confident in what you’re doing. You may have introduced additional people into your business to assist you. Your business should be establishing a good name for itself in the area in which you operate and you’ll find that things begin to run much more smoothly. You should be in a position where you are beginning to take a nice personal income. Another thing to remember is that all the while you are not only building a business that should produce a nice income for you, but you are also building equity that you will be able to sell one day for multiple times net income (EBITDA).
