New Study – Why People Who Run Franchises Are Happier
For more and more people, Sunday no longer feels like the weekend.
A recent Monster.com poll reports almost 60% of Americans report that they get the Sunday Night Blues "really bad."
So what happened to Sundays?
In short, as professional unhappiness rises in America, it's creeping into your weekends.
Let’s look at a typical weekend to see what happened to the happy Sunday: After a Friday night of resting up after a long week of work, you just had an amazing Saturday. Whether it is a day playing with the kids, seeing friends you haven't seen in a while, or eating at your favorite restaurant, for most people Saturday is still a great day.
Even Sunday got off to a good start, but then come those Sunday Night Blues that 60% of Americans feel.
The good news is that another study has shown how people are reversing these Sunday Night Blues.
According to a quarterly survey by Vistaprint, "the vast majority of micro business owners are optimistic about running their own businesses, with 78 percent reporting that they are either happy or very happy."
This makes sense, as one of the proven keys to happiness is to be a part of something greater than yourself. For many franchise owners, this is the reason why they start a small business in the first place.
They know that the way to take back your Sundays is to take control of Monday – Friday!
So what do you do if you are interested in taking control of your work life but do not know where to start?
