Living the American Dream and Being Your Own Boss

If you’re looking to be your own boss and operate your own company it’s important to understand the type of CEO you want to be and how you see yourself and your company five years down the road.

We ask David how does an aspiring entrepreneur find the best franchise for them? David has conducted over 10,000 hours of interviews with future owners and he gave us a list of questions he asks to narrow the scope and find the perfect franchise for each entrepreneur.

Before opening your own franchise David tells his clients to envision themselves and their company in five years. What do you want to accomplish? Where do you want to be geographically? Do you want to sell? Do you want to hand over your business to a management team or be hands-on involved?

These are just a few of the questions David asks potential franchisee’s that will start to narrow the scope of your future franchise.


Don’t Wait to Pull the Trigger

The biggest mistake many entrepreneurs make is waiting to pull the trigger and start their franchise. The time for your franchise is now. You could be living the American dream, but fear is holding you back.
