It’s quite common to feel frustrated when you’re looking at franchise opportunities.
First of all, there are too darn many of them.
Secondly, you have no idea how to determine if a specific franchise opportunity will be right for you.
Lastly, you don’t know who to trust.
As a result, your search for a franchise usually goes one of two ways.
A. You get stuck in a cycle.
This “cycle” can last for months. It consists of finding what you think to be a good franchise opportunity, learning more about it, and for whatever* reason, talking yourself out of it. And doing the same thing all over again. And again.
B. You give up on the idea (because you’re frustrated), and decide to go job-hunting. Fun.
*That reason is almost always related to fear, or lack of serious knowledge about the opportunity. Or both. Wait. Actually, they’re related.
The question you need to ask yourself is this:
How bad do you want it?
In other words, how determined are you to be your own boss?
Use This Proven Shortcut
