The sign on the side of the road reads: “Danger! Beware!”
We receive continual requests for advice from people who are getting close to the point of buying a new business – specifically a franchise business. The majority of these people are not coming from a business background and are looking for something that their family can operate or a place to invest some extra money that has the potential of generating more money than their conservative investments. Others still are looking to buy as a way of making a career change – they are sick of their jobs.
Most have already been ‘sold the dream’ in their minds before they even find us.
Today we would like to publish a kind of summary article with hand picked articles just for you. If you truly read these articles before you purchase a franchise business, you will be in a better position than anyone we know. You will be in a very unique and powerful position.
So don’t just skim these articles. Learn them. If you can’t understand something, we can help you reach out for help from a professional advisor on each topic.
We truly wish you the best and most prosperous business future
