On Having Freedom and Control In Your Career (And Your Life)

enjoying the freedom and control of business ownership

That man has freedom and control. How do I know?

Just look at his smile!

That said, I need to tell you that most of the folks that I consult with about franchise business ownership are not only focused on making money. I’ve found they have other reasons for wanting to be their own bosses

Like having more freedom and having more control.

Can you relate?

Freedom and Control

My last official, ‘job’ was so dysfunctional, it still hurts my brain to even think about it.

Heck, Dr. Phil could have brought his entire crew in to tape a full week of episodes without even scratching the surface of all the sickness that was taking place at the automotive franchise I was attempting to manage. It was bad.

And because of the dysfunction, I turned into a person I never wanted to be. 

Good thing my position there didn’t last long. 


The freedom to come and go when you please sounds nice, doesn’t it? There’s more.

How about the freedom to hiring who you want.

Or the freedom to take a day-or a few days off-whenever you want.

Heck, if you play your cards right, you’ll even have the freedom to walk away when you want to. Here’s how you’ll be able to do it

When I lost my job in 2000, I had know idea what I was going to do.

But, during that moment, when the GM told me to pack my bags, I knew what I didn’t want to do.

I didn’t want someone else having control over my career-my life.

Do you?

Are you cool with your boss having control over you? Your schedule?

Your pay?

The Change

After I was canned, I joined my dad’s franchise consulting firm, and I’ve  never looked back.

Now I really do have freedom and control.

And you can too.

But it takes courage.

Do you have it?

I'm The Franchise King®, Joel Libava. I help prospective franchise owners avoid bank account emptying mistakes.
For 23 years, I’ve been showing people how to make smart, informed decisions on franchises to buy, and I can help you, too!
P.S. I'm not a franchise consultant/broker.

Joel is Highly Principled
There are many people in the franchise business who claim to to be experts in the field. Unfortunately many of them lack both knowledge and integrity. Joel, however, is without question one of the most qualified and principled people I know, in or out of his industry."
