Stop your search for a franchise to buy this instant! You may be going about it the wrong way….
If you’re like most potential franchise owners, you put your sweats on, kick your shoes off, and jump online–hoping that you’ll somehow magically be able to land on that, “perfect opportunity.” I totally understand where you’re coming from, and admittedly, that’s how I would start, too.
If I didn’t know what the heck I was doing.
But, I do know what I’m doing, with regards to finding great opportunities in franchise business ownership; I’ve helped hundreds of people do so. With the recent release of my franchise book, I’m able to help even more people learn how to go about their search for a franchise…but not just any franchise; a franchise that makes complete sense to pursue, and maybe even purchase.
It’s About The Where
Where you start your search will have a direct impact on which franchises you end up pursuing. Let me explain…
If you start looking for franchises by looking for franchises, you’re going to quickly get overwhelmed. There are well over 3,000 different franchise concepts that are currently being offered in the USA alone. That’s a lot! So, instead of starting at a great franchise website like Franchise Direct, you need to do something else, first. (Then you can go to the website!) You need to start your search with you. You!
If you don’t start with you, you may end up like these franchise owners who probably didn’t.
Starting your search for a franchise needs to start with some deep insights into you. You need to get away from all of your electronics for a day or two, and ask yourself these questions;
- What are you really, really good at, professionally?
- What do you enjoy doing in a work-related setting?
- What are your dominant personal characteristics?
- What are your short-term goals?
- What are your long-term goals?
- What does your financial picture look like?
- Are you totally comfortable following a system?
- Are you willing to pay a portion of your sales to a franchisor for 10 years?
If you don’t ask yourself these questions before you start looking for the right franchise, you’re lowering your odds of finding one that makes sense. If you’re going to do this–do it right. Take the time now…before you plunk down $100,000, $200,000 or more into a franchise business of your own. You’ll really be ahead of the curve.
The questions I gave you above are only some of the ones you need to ask yourself. Chapter 6 of Become a Franchise Owner! has even more.
Not once in this post did I suggest that this was going to easy. Or fast.
I know you want to do this right.
