Like the movie, “It’s Complicated”, planning to go into business can be difficult and filled with uncertainty. One of the first decisions you will have to make is should it be an independent startup business or a franchise.
If you decide to go as a startup, you will be independent, but you will have to learn as you go, trial & error and those lessons can be costly and debilitating, you will have to build recognition and acceptance for your business from scratch and you won’t have any professional support, a coach if you will, to guide you when there is a problem. If on the other hand, you decide on a franchise all of these features and more are already incorporated into their system and before you invest a dime, you will be presented with a Franchise Disclosure Document and Agreement for your consideration, which includes all pertinent aspects about the business, its history and operations.
Whichever way you decide to go, after taking this course you will have a clearer vision of the road ahead and when you come to a fork in the road, you will have the knowledge to make the best decisions and stay on the right path, so that you don’t get forked.
Thoreau said, “most men live their lives in quiet desperation”, don’t be that guy or gal; choose to live your dreams and determine your own destiny or you will end up working for someone else and letting them determine your destiny for you..
