Imagine having the choice of waking up in the morning without being rudely awaken by an alarm. Imagine not having to sit through the daily commute to get to the office. Imagine instead having the morning to see to your family, perhaps go to the gym, do some shopping and then work in the afternoon. Imagine working a 4-day week from the comfort of your home office. This is the reality for many World Options franchisees who enjoy running their business with the flexibility to choose when they work.
If you are looking to start for a business which gives you the freedom of a better work-life-balance then the World Options franchise could be just what you’ve been looking for.
Franchisees are able to earn residual income, grow their business and still have the time to spend with friends and family, pursue other interests and enjoy recreational activities while constantly growing their business even when they are not working.
We started our World Options franchise over three years ago and it’s been a brilliant experience. For us, as a couple, it gives us the flexibility to enjoy the lifestyle that we are used to but still build a good business.
We work as a team looking after our business customers and bringing new customers on board. World Options works because we are offering a great shipping system which businesses find invaluable, as well as excellent account handling service for our customers. Whenever we have needed support the World Options customer service team are always there to provide the answers and solutions, so you feel you are not on your own.
Our business just keeps growing and now we are enjoying the life changing financial rewards this brings

My early career was as a gymnast and then as an acrobat, which I enjoyed immensely. I moved into acting and had a successful career for 20 years, securing roles on television and on stage. But around four years ago, I started looking for a more steady job and something that I could rely on in the future. That is when I found out about franchising opportunities with World Options.
Three and a half years later, I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved. World Options has become my main career and enables me to enjoy acting on the side without the constant pressure and concern over when the next role might come in. I’m my own boss and responsible for how well my franchise performs, but I have the support of World Options and the other franchisees. This is incredibly valuable when you’re operating alone. The independence is one of the main advantages of franchising.
My advice to those considering franchising is to absolutely go for it, but don’t do it blindly. Spend plenty of time researching and thinking about the type of work you want to do beforehand. World Options suited me as I can work from home and choose my hours whereas other franchising opportunities require owners to establish and man physical premises.

I used to work in financial services, but when I had my kids I decided to become a stay at home mum and home school my children. After a few years of juggling being a mum, home tutor and wife I realised that my children were growing up seeing that mummy doesn’t go to work and doesn’t earn money towards our family. I’d lost a little bit of my independence and I missed my old self. I realised that was the wrong message I wanted to portray. I wanted them to see that mummy is independent, she does have a job and helps towards the family finances.
I started researching and noticed so many franchises available for women were in beauty products, cleaning or childcare, which was the last thing I wanted to do. I came across World Options and I knew it was perfect for me, all I needed was a laptop and a mobile phone. Now I run my business from home when I want.
Becoming a business owner has helped build my confidence so much. Financially I can’t express enough how it makes me feel to be able to treat my children often, and contribute towards family holidays. I don’t worry about bills anymore, it has given us a huge financial buffer.
It sounds corny but I can’t believe how much owning a World Options franchise has really changed our lives. I would absolutely recommend it to working parents looking to get back into work, it’s the best decision I’ve ever made.
I feel so excited about the future right now, my business is growing, our family is benefiting and best of all my children are proud of me
