How do I know if I’m ready to run my own business?


Investing in a franchise is not a decision to be taken lightly – no business agreement should be entered into without a great deal of consideration. As to whether you will ever be ready to make the move: well, why put off until tomorrow (or next month, or next year) what you could do today? The very fact that you are reading this magazine would indicate that it’s a very real possibility. If you can’t imagine making the transition to being your own boss, then it’s worth knowing that a good franchisor will only allow you to start trading in complete confi dence that it’s time to do so, having set you up with full training and, depending on the business, shop fi t-out, hardware and software, client contacts and pre-launch marketing. As a franchisee you will be safe in the knowledge that all the support you require is available, whenever you need it.
