An insight into franchising from a Franchisee's perspective
Written on the 15 March 2011 by Will Fulton
Buying a franchise is a great step if you are a first time business owner - especially if you’re coming out of a successful job in a similar field to that of your target franchise. That was my motivation for getting in. I also figured it would take way too long to set up endless business systems so why reinvent the wheel? I did very little due diligence prior to getting into ActionCOACH and have some perspective on this approach with the benefit of 5 year’s hindsight!
Best wishes with your decision and back yourself to be the best!
