If Donald Trump Was Your Franchise Salesman, Would You Buy A Franchise From Him?

I’m serious: Would you buy a franchise business from Donald Trump if he was a franchise salesman?

For the purpose of this post, I say it depends. Follow along…
(Note: This is not a political post)

Who Did You Vote For?

Did you vote for Donald Trump?

If so, and you’re satisfied with the job he’s been doing as President, I think you would buy a franchise from him (if he sold franchises). Right?

In other words, you’d give him your hard-earned money*.

*Anywhere from $175,000 on up. (The average cost for a franchise these days)

But what if you did not vote for Trump? My guess is that you probably wouldn’t give him your money if he was involved in the sales process. But wait.

Amazing Franchise Opportunities Do Exist

There are opportunities out there that, if you play your cards right, can help you build wealth.

Of course you have to know what you’re doing. It’s not easy to find the serious money-makers.

But what if the franchise Trump was selling was:

  • Affordable
  • A great fit for your work skills
  • Populated with lots of happy, money-making franchisees
  • Available in your neck of the woods

Would you buy it?

If you voted for Trump, and you liked and trusted him, odds are you would. You’d give him your money.

But what if you didn’t vote for him?

What if you didn’t like him? What if you didn’t trust him as your franchise salesman?

Finally, what if he had a history of scamming people out of their money?

On the other hand, just because you didn’t vote for the guy, it doesn’t mean you should pass up a great opportunity. Right?

Because you do want to be your own boss.

If Trump Was Your Franchise Salesman

Now let’s take (President) Trump-the franchise salesperson, out of the picture. This is important.

Let’s say that you were investigating a franchise opportunity and the person in charge of franchise sales-the franchise salesperson you were dealing with, seemed a bit “off?” There was something about her…you couldn’t quite put your finger on it. Maybe it was her tone. Maybe it was something else. All you know is something didn’t feel right when you were talking with her. Basically, you didn’t trust her.

My question to you is this: would you buy the franchise from her if your research showed you that it was a good opportunity and it felt like it was the right one for you?

Even if you didn’t really trust your franchise saleswoman or salesman?

Trust Matters

My feeling is that you’re more apt to purchase a product (or service) these days if a professional is selling it. A professional you trust.

Unless trust isn’t important to you.

In that case, you’ll get what you get.

So, how much does trust matter to you?

Would you buy a high-ticker item, like a car, house, or a franchise business from someone you didn’t trust?
