It’s perfectly okay to just look around a bit.

I really don’t blame you.

Job security is almost non-existent these days.

If you’re employed, and you’re really good at what you do, you can lose your job in a split second. Talent only goes so far these days.

If you’ve been downsized, and you’re say…51 years old, I really don’t blame you for wanting to explore “other options.”

If you’re 22 years old, and just graduated college (congrats!) I certainly don’t blame you for wanting to be in control of your career by becoming the owner of a business. Especially since you’ve probably watched your mom or dad or aunt or uncle go through a downsizing. Pretty ugly, eh?


Don’t Drink This

If you are looking at other options, like franchise ownership, do yourself a favor:

Don’t Drink The Kool-Aid

Don’t look into franchise ownership because you’ve “heard” that it’s a lot less risky than starting a business from scratch, or some other related nonsense.

It’s not. Read. But still…

It’s (franchising) the greatest business model ever invented. You just have to know how to figure out what you can afford, choose a franchise that’s right for you, do amazing research, and make sure everyone that needs to be on board, is.


You Don’t Have To

Really. You don’t have to.

You don’t have to buy a franchise. You can just look around a bit. Lots of people do. You can even take a break from looking at all the different franchise opportunities and come back to your search another time. I’ve had people disappear off my radar screen…people who were really serious about being their own bosses, contact me two years after we first started working together.

People decide not to buy a franchise for lots of reasons…with fear being the top reason.

This is all you have. This is not a dry run. This is your life. If you want to fritter it away with your fears, then you will fritter it away, but you won’t get it back later.”
– Laura Schlessinger

It’s okay. If you’re not ready, you’re not ready.
[Tweet “If you’re not ready, you’re not ready.”]  
You may never be ready to do something big-like becoming the owner of a business.

So what?

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."
