I know for a fact that there are a TON of you out there asking yourself this question right now…Should I buy a franchise? So many folks are losing their jobs and getting laid off, it generally causes most all of us to consider “going it on our own!”
Being your own boss is great, but to be honest, you will probably find yourself doing double the work for half the pay if you are not CAREFUL…and that is not an exaggeration at all. I TELL YOU THIS, NOT TO SCARE YOU, BUT BECAUSE YOU MUST CHOOSE A GREAT FRANCHISE SYSTEM IF YOU WANT TO BE SUCCESSFUL…AND THIS IS HARD, BECAUSE THERE ARE LITERALLY THOUSANDS OF BAD FRANCHISES YOU CAN INVEST INTO.
Keep in mind that with a franchise, you are in business for yourself, BUT the Franchisor can and will control how you do business. For a successful and proven franchise system…this is great! You get the benefit of their proven money making system!
For a new franchise company that is still working out the bugs, this can be a nightmare! They will force you to spend money and do things that they THINK will make you successful. But often times those things will not work and they are learning their business on YOUR DIME.
Franchising can be an amazing tool to financial freedom, BUT BE CAUTIONS, because there are very few truly good franchise systems out there!
