Touching Hearts Franchise Is a Rewarding Career Choice for Millennials
In-home senior care service business attracts young adults looking for meaningful work
With a hunger to do work that matters and an affinity for pursuing entrepreneurial endeavors, millennials — the generation who now dominates the U.S. workforce — are, not surprisingly, opting to own service-oriented franchises.
As a Touching Hearts at Home franchisee, you will find a rewarding career as a business owner who changes lives. If you want to live your passion of helping others and build a future of your own making, Touching Hearts is the brand that provides millennials a pathway to success and a meaningful, joyful career based on helping seniors.
“In the last few years, we have seen an increase in the number of millennials who choose to franchise with us,” says Renae Peterson, Touching Hearts at Home CEO and founder. “Being a Touching Hearts franchisee is a perfect career path for millennials. These 20- and 30-somethings are some of our most successful franchisees. When you’re only 25 years old, you don’t have that fear of failure — you just want to dive in.”
Meaningful work in an entrepreneurial setting with Touching Hearts at Home franchise appeals to millennials
While many of our youngest franchise owners have had a personal experience that introduces them to the senior care industry — such as an older grandparent needing help as they age — others are simply drawn to the fulfilling work and entrepreneurial independence that owning a Touching Hearts franchise brings.
In an article titled, “Senior care industry offers employment perks millennials seek” at McKnightsSeniorLiving.com, Diane Wiley writes, “Millennials put an emphasis on doing meaningful work that improves the lives of others.” The National Chamber Foundation in the report, “The Millennial Generation,” states that “Many to most desire to start their own businesses. They have the ideas and innovative qualities of successful entrepreneurs. … Though research varies, one-half to two-thirds of Millennials are interested in entrepreneurship, and more than one-fourth (27%) are already self-employed.” A Touching Hearts at Home franchise can be an ideal fit for millennials who want to own their own business while helping others and making a positive contribution to their communities.
Ryan Lungstrom, Touching Hearts Director of Marketing, a millennial who “grew up” in the franchising industry, says that his young adult peers make excellent Touching Hearts franchisees.
“I’ve been in the home office now for 10 years,” Ryan says. “Previously, I thought maybe you needed to be an older woman to be a successful franchise owner in this business; that’s the type of person that you usually think of doing well. But the longer I’ve worked here, I’ve broadened my opinion of who can be successful. Millennials can actually be very successful in this industry, and we’ve seen it with our current franchise owners. Age is becoming irrelevant for those who are able to offer service in this industry.”
