So, You Think You Want to Start Your Own Business?

Have you ever wondered if entrepreneurs are made or born? Consider this: it’s probably a combination and there are many options out there to pursue your entrepreneurial goals. Most people will reach the decision of being their own boss after successful careers and perhaps some frustrations in the corporate environment.

You might consider hanging out ‘your shingle’ and doing what you have always done in your career—or what you feel you are best at. Like any entrepreneur, you want to minimize risk. In a strong economy, franchising makes sense. According to, “Franchises added nearly 1 million new jobs in the United States over the past five years. Employment in the sector grew at an average annual rate of 2.6% over that time, far outpacing employment growth across all industries.”

What’s the best concept for you?

Where do you start? What are your best resources to make a decision? Of the thousands of franchises available, you might cull it down to the Entrepreneur magazine list of the Top-500. But that exploration might seem a little overwhelming with so many choices.

More than likely you’ve got a day job and you need help to guide you through the discovery process and introduce you to the concepts that make the most sense. Did you know there are franchises available where you can keep your day job? It’s called semi-absentee ownership and you can build wealth while you continue to work. Of course there are many options for full-time involvement in a franchise business as well. With proven business concepts available through franchising, you have the resources and support of an organization behind you.
