What do I do now? Where do I fit in? Should I go back to school? What kind of job am I going to get?
These are natural questions for any military veteran transitioning back into civilian life. We understand that such a change can be very exciting, but at the same time, completely overwhelming and terrifying!
We know and deeply respect that you have committed years of your life to your country. You’ve selflessly served and protected the freedoms we enjoy. You. Are. A. Hero. You’ve proven to yourself, and everyone around you that you can do hard things. So, before you start mass-producing resumes in hopes of landing a mediocre job, consider doing something more for yourself and become an entrepreneur!
Skills you gained in the military – using systems, adhering to processes, working as a unit, leading a team, dealing with day-to-day challenges, understanding the competition—are all valuable in owning your own property management business.
Don’t know where to start? That’s where we come in. Here are three reasons military veterans make top-notch Real Property Management franchise owners:
The Real Property Management franchise system provides a complete blueprint for success. It provides systems, tools, resources, and support to help owners thrive. Of course, this doesn’t eliminate the need for complete dedication and commitment from a franchise owner, but the framework is clear. This is something you may relate to, as most vets are very independently minded, yet able to follow a process, and get things done!
Part of being a Real Property Management franchise owner is understanding that there are certain guidelines provided about how to run the business, and following them is the best course of action. These guidelines are in place for the protection and betterment of your business, and our brand as a whole. Our internal franchise business coaches have found that the franchisees who are most successful are simply those who follow our established system. Those who think they know better, focus only on their own interests and try to do things their own way end up struggling. Our approach has been built over 30 years with input from hundreds of franchisees. The collective knowledge and best practices are hard to beat.
Veterans like you tend to understand this concept better than most. Sometimes decisions are made that you may not completely agree with but are the best decision for the group. Being able to swallow your pride, trust the system, and do your job is what will help you truly stand out from the rest.
One Team Approach
“A rising tide lifts all boats.” This is an adage that rings true in the ears of the most successful franchises. It is something that our veteran franchisees agree with as well. There is strength in numbers and strength in a team. We understand that starting a business can be intimidating, but you’re not alone.
A franchise is only as strong as its franchisees, so you can bet that the support offered to Real Property Management franchise owners is world-class. We realize that your success determines our success as a company overall. When you join Real Property Management, you’re plugging yourself into a network of hundreds of other owners who want you to succeed as well! To be able to bounce ideas off your peers and continually learn from them and collaborate with them is truly invaluable. When we work together, it benefits the entire group for the better. Franchising provides the opportunity to go into business for yourself, but not by yourself.
