According to my friend, Ivan Walsh, this is what you gain;
“When you enter into their business, you gain by seeing at first hand how a successful business in run. Compare this with all the mistakes you are likely to make when starting your own business. When you learn how the franchise model works, you can use this to develop all types of products, courses, education products based on what you’ve learnt there. You can then go one further and setup your own franchise and use all the knowledge you’ve gathered. Again, compare this to starting a business with no previous experience.”
Ivan wrote that as part of an interview he did with me, earlier this year. Read the rest over at IvanWalsh.com
Mistakes. We all make them. But, wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to avoid almost every mistake that’s commonly made during the start-up phase of a small business? Wouldn’t it be a game-changer? I think so, and that’s why opportunities in franchise ownership excite me. (Most of the time.) And if you’re seriously thinking of becoming your own boss, and feel that you’re ready to own what you do, becoming a franchise owner could be right for you. You can start your journey right now. If you’ve already started to look at franchise ownership as an “option,” I recommend that you clean off your franchise slate, so you can learn how to carefully select and properly research a franchise.
If you’re ready to get into a business in which most of the mistakes have already been made, (which means you don’t have to!) then stay with me. I’ll get you there. Safely.
I’d like to be your teacher.
I’d also like to be your franchise guide.

“The decision to become a franchise owner is a big one—you would be crazy to even consider making it without Joel Libava’s years of experience in your corner.”
