How To Choose The Right Franchise Online Course

Buying your first franchise is arguably the biggest and most important decision that you will make in your lifetime, and is one that will have a huge impact on your finances, work-life balance and future. It therefore makes sense for this decision to be afforded the same level of scrutiny, comparison and analysis as more routine and less-influential purchases.

The course will empower you to take full responsibility for what is a life-altering decision. To probe, question, compare and analyse, and to not just accept what someone selling a franchise tells you. It is the only product of its kind that will step you through the process of actually deciding which franchise is best for you.

This is the essential guide to choosing, buying and becoming a franchisee, in a franchise that is closely aligned to your personal, professional, financial, lifestyle and future goals. This class is filled with valuable tools, checklists, calculators, timelines and templates to ensure you are making the most informed and rigorously road-tested decision possible.

  • Understanding why you want to buy a franchise and how to assess how much money you need to buy one
