Free Franchise Webinar: Getting To Yes or No With Great Franchise Due Diligence

franchise due diligence

Proper due diligence can go a long way in almost any major life decision. It’s crucial to get the facts, and as I wrote in my book, “All franchise buyers need to become Fact-Gathering-Machines.”  The research phase is all about facts; it’s certainly not about emotions. That comes later, as you start to visualize yourself as the owner.

Most of the people that I talk to about becoming franchise owners have one thing in common; they’re confident about their ability to do research. (Or, at least they come across that way.) Interesting. I wonder where they learned how to properly research a franchise-type of business. Especially since 99.9% of them never actually owned one in the past.

These are the same people who after taking my online franchise quiz, are asked if they’d like some guidance, and decline it.  I just don’t get it. Is it ego? Are some people just stubborn? Or are they cheap, and don’t want to pay for professional, real-world guidance? (That’s right; I said it. Cheap!)



Why would someone who’s never owned a business before, try to go out and invest in one without proper guidance and coaching? It’s not like buying a franchise is like buying a $300 Network Marketing  Anti-Aging Cream Kit! Franchise business opportunities can cost upwards of $300K. Why risk it?
