Be Your Own Boss With A Profitable Franchise Business
If you’re serious about becoming your boss, and feel that owning a franchise could be the way to go, keep reading, because I can help you do it.
Namely, I can help you find the money-makers. Franchises where the owners (the franchisees) are making good money.
“I want to say thank you, Joel. The guidance you are providing me with through these tools is extremely helpful. I started looking into franchising by ‘shopping’ (cringe), but was then intelligent enough to search the web to find out what I need to know about franchising. That is how I stumbled across your materials. I am so glad I did!
I am now a cautious learner and know that if I do more forward, it will be armed with more ammunition to make a good choice.”
Thank you so much.

Fearful About Making The Wrong Decision?
For the most part, every prospective franchise owner-ones with a lot of wealth, and even ones with just enough money to buy a franchise, are fearful about making the wrong decision…the wrong choice in a franchise-as they work through the process of identifying and researching* franchise opportunities.
*As you attempt to research franchise opportunities. I say “attempt,” because unless you know exactly how to do proper franchise research, you’ll never be able to get the facts you need to make the right decision.
In addition to not having enough facts in front of you to make a good decision on a franchise to own, there are other things to watch out for.
Like what I said in a feature article about me in
“According to The Franchise King®, there’s this myth created by franchise marketing that franchises are businesses-in-a-box or turnkey businesses. It creates a false sense of security, and people think all they have to do is write a $35,000 check for the franchise fee and get $100,000 from the bank, and then they’ll be rockin’ and rollin.’ That’s the part I fight every day. You have to make sure you have the right traits and characteristics needed for franchising, or you’re going to fail.”
An Important Intermission
Candidly, I know that The Franchise King.com won’t be the only franchise website you’ll visit. These days, there’s no shortage of websites that are focused on any topic imaginable-including franchising.
That’s why it’s important for you to only spend time on websites that focus on always providing truthful information-no matter what. The Franchise King.com is one of those websites.
I’ve been providing straightforward information on franchising (through this website) since 2008.
In particular, The Franchise King Blog was the 1st-ever blog solely focused on franchising. But longevity doesn’t guarantee a thing. (Just look at what’s happened to iconic brands like Radio Shack and Sears.)
My Point is This…
I’ve been involved in franchising-in one form or another, since 1991. I’ve managed franchise businesses, I’ve owned a franchise, and I’ve sold franchises.
I know exactly what you’re going through, because I went through it myself.
For example, it’s pretty likely you’re nervous about going out on your own. I was too.
As a matter of fact, if you’re anything like me, I’ll bet you’re vacillating between getting a new job or becoming your own boss. If that’s the case, don’t worry; it’s completely normal. You may not have enough information to make the determination on whether or not you should go into business. Until now.
What I’m trying to say is this:
If you’re looking for information on buying a franchise, including what it’s like to own one, and you’d prefer that it comes from someone who’s been there-and someone who’s willing to share the good, the bad, and the ugly about franchising, you’ve definitely come to the right place.
Finally, there’s something you need to know about me: I don’t sugar-coat stuff. I tell it like it is.
That’s because we’re talking about changing your life. About you finally being able to work towards your dreams-not your bosses. About taking control of your life-instead of having your life control you. About working really, really hard-and potentially having something to show for it besides a paycheck. Equity.
Are you ready to create your own destiny?

Let’s cut to the chase, okay?

Work With Me
“I purchased a one-hour consultation with you a couple of months ago when I had just returned from a Discovery Day at a maid services franchise headquarters. I was excited about the opportunity but had concerns about their growing pains, so you strongly encouraged me to step back and research other maid service franchises. You wanted me to understand if what they were offering was unique. I ended up going to two more discovery days. One of them was MaidPro, and I was extremely impressed. I’m happy to say I just mailed in my signed franchise agreement and my check for the franchise fee. It was an easy check to write knowing I’d done my research and I have full confidence that MaidPro is the right choice for me.
Thanks a ton for your guidance. I know I’ve seen testimonials similar to this on your website…now you have another one you’re welcome to use. Keep up the good work!”
Greg McCartney, Maidpro, Reno, NV
