Begin the New Year With A Career Change

Thursday, January 16, 2014


The New Year is the perfect time to start thinking about the little changes to your life. A frequent and popular resolution is ‘get a new job’, and we can see why. What bigger change can you make to your everyday life than the place you spend more time at than home and a lot of time thinking about on top of that.

Have you ever considered starting your own business or finding coffee franchise opportunities instead?

Why Do You Want To Leave?

Think about why you’re considering leaving your current job. Perhaps it is just that you feel under appreciated in your current position, you’ve been there for a long time and people are promoted over you despite your seniority and you’ve had enough. If you’re looking to applying for something a bit higher up the pecking order, which will give you increased responsibility and a few more pennies, you’re probably thinking about it for the right reasons.

If, however, you want to leave your job because it is mundane, because you feel like you’re stuck in a rut, or because you’re just outright bored of it, then you might not be thinking about it logically at all.

Lots of people are dissatisfied in their jobs. While you might be one of the very lucky people who get to do something they love every day, most people don’t.

  • You don’t like the way your company is run

  • You don’t get on with your colleagues

  • You’re under too much pressure

  • The commute is too much

  • You aren’t being challenged

  • You aren’t being paid what you feel you deserve

  • You want to move into a new area

These are just some of the reasons that people might think about leaving a job. In the current economic client, people don’t just pick up and leave, they need to find somewhere new first. With the amount of competition for every job, it can take a long time to get an interview, let alone

If you move to another job within the same industry (or even something quite different), will anything really change?

So What Are Your Options?

Being self-employed might sound like a distant pipe dream. Owning your own business might seem even more further off. You need to look at what you’re good at, and see how that would translate into a – hopefully – viable business. Many people think of the idea long before they make the move into their own business, and so have an established idea by the time it comes to making the change.

It is much harder to come up with a business idea purely because you want to be self-employed.

Instead, buying into a franchise can be an easier and more cost effective option.

You don’t need to worry about establishing a brand in a world full of competition, and you don’t need to work out every little costing because this will have been done previously. Depending on the franchise opportunity you chose, you might find that you need to consider variables such as rent and bill payments. 


A mobile coffee franchise can be a better choice than a static business, because coffee franchise opportunities give you the unique chance to learn a skill, be fully autonomous in your work, and manage your own finance.

Cafe2U’s coffee franchise opportunities can be the perfect starting point. Rather than starting a new and potentially risky business from scratch, and having to finance and budget everything by yourself, the mobile nature of the business means you can avoid the high and variable costs of rent and electricity bills. The acceleration package can even offer you a guaranteed income to get you started!

You can control where you work and for how long (if you work less you won’t make as much money – simple!).

Make the change now. Contact Cafe2U for more information about coffee franchise opportunities in your area.
