Thinking of opening a family-operated business, but wondering whether your household will survive? Many Miracle Method franchises are family-run operations by husband-wife teams, and several have hired their adult children to help operate the business as well. We asked some of our franchisees about their family-run businesses and got some interesting responses.
Take a look at some of the great reasons they gave us for mixing business and family:
- Flexibility. One husband-wife team chose Miracle Method because of the scheduling flexibility. With a highly trained team of professionals they can depend on, Paul and Jonee Barnett in Houston, Texas feel more comfortable taking time off when they need it. The Miracle Method model provides for that freedom and balance to keep from feeling overworked.
- Diverse opportunity. One family of Miracle Method franchisees has proven that the Miracle Method business plan works—regardless of experience or individual talents. Del Murphy and his two sons each own their own Miracle Method franchises. Del in Sacramento, CA is an entrepreneur. Ryan Murphy in Tacoma, WA is a technical master. Tyler Murphy in Seattle, WA is a businessman. They are all operating successful franchises.
- Closeness. Del Murphy believes that their Miracle Method businesses have brought him and his sons closer as a family. “With Ryan and Tyler in a different state, it would be easy to lose touch, but we haven’t. Yes, we usually end up talking business,” Del admits, “but at least we’re talking—and there’s always something to talk about.”
These—and more—are great reasons to consider bringing a business into your family. And a Miracle Method franchise is perfectly structured to accommodate a family’s needs.
