The course covers the basics of how to select the correct franchise that will fit your work requirements and lifestyle. This course will also help people decide if they want a Franchise business instead of attempting to start it on their own.
I wrote a book on Franchising called, "Buying a Franchise: 24 Items to Beware of Before Signing". I will distribute this to all participants in the course.
There are five 16-18 minute sessions recorded. It could be from one week to four weeks depending on the students pace.
The course is structured according to a series of questions that I would ask an individual to find a custom Franchise for their needs. I continue from one session to the next with further questioning on different topics. I also describe different Franchise topics as we proceed. I tell the participants that they can email me and I will respond to their questions in 24 to 48 hours. At the end of the course, they can also sign up at my website for a free Franchise Consultation; if that is something they desire.
Participants should take this course if they were laid-off from their job or they want a work life change and would now like to work for themselves. Some individuals would like to start a Franchise as an investment and keep their present position, because there are semi-absentee and absentee Franchises that give you this opportunity.
