If you are interested in your own franchise, there are two books that I recommend:
- The Educated Franchisee by Rick Bisio (Will assist you in making good decisions in evaluating opportunities)
There is nothing more expensive than ignorance — let The Educated Franchisee serve as your guide for selecting a franchise that meets your needs! The Educated Franchisee will show you: How to find a franchise that is right for you; What qualities franchisors look for; How to gather information from franchisees; How to make sure the franchise makes money; How to confidently select the best franchise; The five keys to success in owning a franchise
- Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki (Great for understanding the financial benefits of self-employment)
The sequel to Rich Dad Poor Dad, learn how the role you play in the business world affects your ability to become financially free. There are four types of people who make up the world of business, but it’s the business owners and the investors (not the employees and the self-employed) who can create great wealth by accelerating their cash flow through those assets. A Wall Street Journal Bestseller, Rich Dad’s CASHFLOW Quadrant is perfect for individuals interested in finding new ways to generate cash flow; this book delivers tools for great success.
When you are exploring making an investment in your future as a potential business owner, the small investment in educating yourself — as you are making a decision — is well worth it.
Also, please call me at any time if you have a question or concern. I enjoy coaching and mentoring people while they are on this journey.
