While you are managing your family, flexibility is key.
Franchising is one way to 'be your own boss' yet leverage those that have gone before you in setting up the business structure, grown the goodwill of the brand name, etc. Women are participating now more than ever.
The growth in this is one more reflection of women expanding their presence in the business world. Stat: woman-owned franchise outlet growth of 24% over a decade ago, with women now owning 35% of U.S. franchises.
Join Untapped Potential at an event focused on the discussion of work-life balance which today may be called work/life blend...
It is a critical topic when contemplating your return-to-work aspirations. How much time will you carve out for your professional engagement? Who is going to pick up the slack with family responsibilities?
This Event, sponsored by the Women's Leadership Center at the University of Saint Joseph and made possible by the generous support of The Hartford, invites local business leaders to share their viewpoint.
"Untapped Potential gave me the support and encouragement I needed to re-enter the workforce. The FlexreturnTM eliminated the gap on my resume and gave me the opportunity to gain more experience in my field. Events such as the Speed Interview, Mentor Mingle and Skill-Up provided great opportunities to network, practice interview skills and overall just boosted my confidence!"
