It might be tempting to think to succeed in business, you need to be highly educated, perhaps with a degree — and certainly, that can’t hurt. However, you may be surprised to learn that when it comes to how to start a vacation rental management business with iTrip®, advanced education is not necessary. In fact, higher education is not a requirement in our franchise model, opening up the possibility of business ownership to more people. Because the franchise model is built on tested processes and procedures, franchisees don’t need to worry about their education and can instead utilize their ambition and life skills to succeed. Below are a few more reasons why higher education isn’t necessary when aligning with a franchisor like iTrip.
Many people who gravitate to a franchise brand to become small business owners do so from the corporate world with a background that serves them well. They have transferable skills like marketing, management, team building, and administration that have been developed and refined during their career. They have received their degrees from a “Real-World University” and already know how to implement systems and follow processes that define franchise brands. Being able to rely on the skillset you’ve already established as an employee or manager is a real advantage of a partnership with iTrip, and we look for candidates who can recognize those abilities in themselves.
Success Determined by Choices
There are several factors more important than education that will determine how a franchisee builds their business. These include important choices such as what brand you partner with, where your franchise is located, if you hire staff, and how you market your franchise. These choices have little to do with one’s level of education and more to do with research and experience. Plus, choosing the right brand makes all the difference.
