So You Want A Home Based Franchise?

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

You want to have a low overhead franchise. In these tough economic times, it certainly makes sense. Or does it? Could a home based franchise of your own provide that Pot O' Gold?

Most of the time, when I do seminars and classes on franchising, questions are asked concerning home based businesses. Home based businesses cover a broad scope of different business models. Some are legit, most are not. Things like:

  1. "Stuff Envelopes For Hundred's Of Dollars A Day" -Not
  2. "Make Money On The Internet" -Probably not
  3. "Make And Sell Your Own Line Of Jewelery"-Maybe

Folks, the "businesses" above are not franchises! They are either MLM junk, or "Biz Opps" {Think vending machines, when thinking of what a Biz Opp is. Biz opp is short for Business Opportunity, which are regulated much differently than franchise are. Some are actually pretty good.}

Please don't ask me to define MLM. I will start turning Green. I hate MLM.

Anyway, investing in a home based business may not be what you think it it is. Read what it may consist of, here.

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."
