Should Someone Like You Really Be Looking At Owning A Franchise?

(This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy).

Yes, you!


Seriously. Do you really have what it takes to own and run your own
business? A franchise business?

  • Can you deal with a 200-page
    operations manual?
  • Will you be able to wait awhile before you start to make a profit?
  • Are you ok with your creativity being stifled a little?
  • Will you get resentful about paying a % of your sales to the franchisor?

I’m not saying that any of the things I laid out above are negative things. They are just some things that you should think about before you immerse yourself into the sometimes frustrating franchise exploration process. If you select the right franchise to own, and research it correctly, owning a franchise can be a great thing.

I was recently interviewed on the Radio Show by Rieva Lesonsky….If her name is familiar, it’s because she was the senior editor for Entrepreneur Magazine. For a long time. She’s an entrepreneur herself, these days, and can be found not only on the site, but over at her own website/blog, SmallBizDaily.
