Swimming pools are not only fun for those that have them, they provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs to have their own business. If you are tired of the 9-5 rat-race you may be considering going into business for yourself. A skill set that includes knowledge about installing or maintaining pools would point towards starting a business in that area.
Here are 3 different types of businesses you could have.
- Purchase a swimming pool franchise. There are pros and cons for most franchises; you have to pay the ‘boss’ a percentage of your income as well as paying for the franchise and equipment needed. That said, it’s still often cheaper than going out on your own. And you get to use the name of the company which many people are familiar with and trust. Some offer training an ongoing advice. It’s wise to read the fine print carefully before signing up and make sure you understand what it means. If you don’t, take it to a solicitor and ask them to explain it.
