Do you dream of being your own boss day after day? There’s no reason that you can’t make that dream a reality. And it’s a lot easier to do if you buy a franchise rather than try to get a brand-new business off the ground.
Are you a jack-of-all-trades?
Do you think you’d be good at some aspects of running a business but less-than-stellar at others? There’s no shame in it – a lot of business owners are the same way. But that’s why it makes sense to start with a franchise. Unless you’re terrific at conducting every aspect of a company, you’ll want at least some of the legwork done for you.
Do you like having access to resources?
As a franchisee, you’ll have access to all sorts of resources that most small business owners couldn’t dream of. Think of group advertising – not something usually available to independent businesspeople. Or company-owned outlets where you can sell products and services to markets that would otherwise be difficult to get into. These are things worth thinking about!
