So many individuals are exploring franchising today because they are getting tired of exchanging time for dollars in a traditional career. In order to turn curiosity into cash, these possible–entrepreneurs must thoroughly investigate franchise companies and have the guidance and support necessary to do so in an educated fashion. In my experience coaching potential franchisees, the process can take as long as 3–6 months or more. During that time, the question usually comes up: What are the most important questions to ask the franchisor and the franchisees.
It can be intimidating as you near retirement age to consider going on your own and owning your own business, but with a well-managed franchise system a break off could be the best decision you’ve ever made. Not only will it make you feel successful and accomplished, but a franchise can provide either a passive income or a way to occupy your time productively in your retirement.
