Isn’t it funny how some of us can’t live without our phones these days? The advancement of technology has opened so many doors for entrepreneurs. An increase in our ability to broadcast, connect, organize and automate have been catalysts for the gig economy while making side hustles more efficient. In my opinion, app developers are our modern-day inventors as their work contribute to making life more convenient and/or entertaining – it takes one great idea and a little bit of progress to be bought out for bountiful gains! What this also means is that the floodgates are open and we are seeing heaps of people stepping into the entrepreneurial realm. Although this is a great phenomenon, it can get overwhelming as we live in this age where it seemingly has never been easier to become a billionaire, but at the same time for most, it has never been more challenging to make the first million. One thing that has stayed consistent in this evolving economy is that everybody shops – wouldn’t it be a huge advantage if we had a company that can help us capitalize on this?

The company is constantly evolving and adding new elements to improve the entrepreneurial experience of an UnFranchise owner. A new Inventory Management tool will be made available in a few weeks that will do just that! Inventory management is the practice of keeping track of stocked goods to minimize the cost of holding inventory by helping business owners know when it’s time to replenish products. Many companies dread the task of checking inventory as it often means overtime hours and lots of repetitive work. Since Market America offers a drop shipping program, that should take care of the bulk of our worries on inventory! So what benefits will this new inventory management tool for UnFranchise owners pack? For one, keeping better track of inventory that moves through your business will help you identify sales patterns and in turn improve cash flow. The tool is designed to automatically update stock quantities as orders are placed in your business and provide an easy reporting system to help you seamlessly organize the movement of products to end consumer. From a legality standpoint, regulatory bodies view Market America and its UnFranchise owners as one in the same hence another big implication of having this information on record is that we can always have on hand proof that we are obliging to proper business practices. In short, it protects the integrity and longevity of the UnFranchise business in turn preserving the UnFranchise owners’ incomes for generations. Look out for further communication with regards to adding this tool to your business.
Although extremely impressive as a stand-alone business, the UnFranchise business can be built around existing careers and lifestyles. It isn’t a model that takes away from other businesses but rather integrated into them. For example, an entrepreneur who owns and operates a gym can provide additional products and programs with TLS, Market America’s exclusive weight management program. A make-up artist can expand their share of customer by recommending health products that contributes to beauty from the inside out. The possibilities are endless! Although the business is systemized and uniform, there’s still room for creativity. To top it all off, the Management Performance Compensation Plan enables any UnFranchise owner to diversify into other industries by partnering with professionals and leveraging their expertise for mutual benefit – it certainly is a modern-day miracle!
