Starting Up a Business? GIVE THANKS for Someone Else's Idea!

One of the hardest parts of starting your own business is coming up with that million-dollar idea. Has someone else already tried your idea? What if you miscalculated this, or underestimated that? What if your idea fails?

That's one of the reasons for entrepreneurs to give thanks for franchises. Now, keep in mind, you are paying to use someone's idea... But you are also reducing your risk. Whether it's a restaurant, accounting firm, dry cleaners or anything you can think of - the franchised brand shows a track record of success.

Success isn't a guarantee though, there’s still a lot of work to do! But why not take advantage of all the franchise has to offer to help position you for that success?

For more information about franchising, I am putting on a free workshop on November 19th in Grand Rapids, MI entitled "Franchising as a Career, an Investment, or Both," we will examine the pros and cons of various different business ownership options while taking a deep dive into franchising. For more information and to register, please visit or call 616-891-1374. You can also email me at

Just a reminder, ALL of my services, workshops, webinars and seminars are free to you!
