I haven’t been sleeping too well the last few weeks.

Future Franchise Owners Are Really Starting To Worry Me
The people I serve…the people I’ve been:
- Writing franchise articles for
- Producing franchise videos for
- Consulting with
- Talking on the phone with for free
- Providing scores for-after they’ve taken my Free Franchise Quiz
All of them are starting to worry me. Especially the ones that have been taking my free franchise quiz lately.
Would you like to know why?
Would you like to know why I’m blaming some of them for my lack of sleep?
They Want To Do It Alone
I know. Isn’t that crazy?
More than a few people (who have been taking my free franchise quiz as of late) have expressed their desire to choose, research and buy a franchise business- a possible $250,000 investment, all by themselves.
Because they can “handle it.”
They know that, how?
They Don’t Have To Do It Alone
Much of this information includes recommendations on how to buy a franchise.
One recommendation: Work with professionals.
I know what you’re thinking.
“Joel, you’re only trying to scare people so they’ll purchase your services.”
Not really. (See. I didn’t even link to my services page. I could have, you know!)
I am however, trying to point out (in my usual, gentle way) that buying a franchise alone-without working with people who have either been franchise owners themselves, or who are industry professionals, is not very smart. There are way too many things that can go wrong. There are way too many things that can be missed. That’s why it’s important to get the best franchise advice.
There is something else, though.
Watch the short franchise video (below) I just produced to find out what it is.
While you’re doing that, I’m going to take a quick power nap.
I haven’t been sleeping too well.
