Is Franchising right for you?

Seminar presented by: Doug Anderson   DA Top Talent

Buying a Franchise can be a great way to get in to business, but is it for you? It can be a way to get out of corporate employment and help you start your own business. If you find a good franchise, you could find it creates wealth, often builds equity, and allows you to be "the boss". It can also be a huge headache, if you’re not careful. Are you suited for the business? How do you know?
