Lesson 28 Module 8
Why Would You Want to Own Your Own Business?
Have you ever thought about owning your own business? If so, the following information is worthy of review. All of it in order to overcome any first impressions and potential bias. Click on each of the topics below for details.
"I have worked in large corporations for nearly 25 years. I'm looking to apply my experiences as well as learn/ grow in new and exciting ways. Sr. Director, Global Information Security, and Business Continuity
“Flexibility, income potential, not having to interview with recruiters 1/2 my age telling me I am not qualified. Being my own boss.” West Coast Sales Rep Selling enterprise software to companies with $1.5b+ revenue
“I am a hard worker and would like to see my success pay off for myself instead of a large corporation” CFO also responsible for a leadership team and traveling from NYC to CA
“I have always had a dream of being my own boss, but with wife and family obligations, I haven’t done this. I now want to pursue this. I am anxious but cautious. I have a son that is struggling in the corporate world, not because of skills, but following rules. I want to find a business where he can participate, and be successful, with my coaching. Hopefully attractive and successful enough I can bring my other son into.” Director, Corporate Procurement

Would it surprise you to know that about 83% of people have a least pondered owning their own business? That's also about the percentage that have at least wondered, "what would owning a franchise be like as a way of becoming a business owner?"
This lesson is about becoming a franchise owner and using OPM (see FAQ section below) to finance your investment. If you're not open minded about at least exploring this from a different perspective, then you'll want to move to another lesson. There's a lot of myths and bias that prevent people from at least learning about franchising the right way...so they can make an informed decision. You'll learn the right way in this lesson. You'll get the correct information on which to make an informed decision.
Did you know, or have you thought about, keeping your job AND still owning a franchise? It's very doable and there are tremendous personal, financial rewards and advantages to being a franchise owner!
Another statistic I read says of those that ponder this question, about 1% do it correctly. The difference is that the 1% mentally start from the same place, but their underlying approach is disproving different franchise opportunities so they can dismiss self-employment as a career option and return to a career where they must be "chosen" for the job vs. them choosing a career where they're in control.
