Is 2019 the year for change?

Posted on 28/12/2018

The start of 2019 is well underway, Christmas now feels like a distant memory as we all prepare to get back into the swing of working life. How do you feel about it? Looking forward to the year ahead and the goals you’ve set out to achieve, or is there that feeling of dread? The new year is the time people tend to start thinking about how they want the next 365 days to pan out and the goals they want to achieve. Exercising more, healthy eating and learning a new skill/hobby are some of the most popular new year goals – but what are yours?

Another year has passed, which means another 365 days of opportunity. The new year is the perfect time to think about a fresh start or making a change in your life. Studies show that only 8% of people are likely to achieve the goals they set for themselves, with career change being a top priority for many. But, it’s also believed that tying your career goal to a time frame, you’re more likely to succeed – so the New Year is the perfect opportunity to pursue in a career you have a genuine passion for.

It’s important to map out the reasons behind the change, why do you want to do this? What are the benefits you’re seeking from this change? Studies suggest that one of the biggest reasons for a career change is the work-life balance that the current role provides, only one third of British employees are happy with their current work-life balance. Do you fall under this statistic? SDL Property Partners could be the perfect way to bridge the gap between owning a business, whist eliminating the above fears.  

If you’ve had to pass up business opportunities in 2018 and want to make your mark on the industry throughout 2019, here’s why our partnership programme might be the perfect growth opportunity for you:

  1. The programme is designed to help you with 2 main areas; to excel in an area of business you may be unfamiliar with and to help you get up & running as your own business
  2. The support available is second to none. If there is a specific area of the business you feel less confident in, training courses can upskill you and help build confidence
  3. Any good company, will already be well known in their industry. Partnering up with an existing brand will give you a head start when it comes to exposure, credibility and success
  4. The support from a nationally recognised brand will help establish a marketing mix that will put you a step above from your competitors
  5. The ongoing support provided from the partner doesn’t stop, it’s a continuous system that is designed to support the franchisee throughout the growth of their career
  6. The use of successful back end systems and technology is as important as ever, and as a partner you will gain access to proven systems and methodologies tailored to YOUR business
  7. You’re not alone. There will always be a source of information and support available from the each and every partner, which means you’ll always have access to the resources you need

When you look at this list, not only does it show you the benefits of our partners programme – but it also makes you think about how many tasks and challenges you’ll face when setting up a business alone. There are a number of advantages and drawbacks to each partner offering and depending on your sector you might be better off in looking to your own ingenuity to build your new business yourself. That being said, the advantages outweigh the drawbacks here at SDL Property Partners, which is why our business model has taken off in 2018.
