Someone told me years ago, that if you’re going to invest in a franchise, there are three returns that you should look for in that investment. You can put these in any order that you want.
How much money can you make?
You do need to know how much money you can make in that business. What are you capable of, what are you worthy of?
Do you want to help people?
It’s been said that 80% of the population today would change the jobs, occupations, professions if they could because they’re not happy. And it’s usually not because money, it’s about can I do something that makes an impact on people. And I believe it was Zig Ziglar of sales training who said something to the effect of, “If you help enough other people where they want to go in life, you’ll get there yourself.” So, second, you want to get into something where you can help people.
Do you wish to achieve personal growth?
Find something where you can grow personally. So, if you can find a franchise where you can make the type of money you want to make, you can help people improve, and you can develop personally. That is an investment you want to make because now you not only have a business you have a hobby.
If you’re coming out of a sales background, or a sales management background, and you want to find those three returns on your investment, I would ask you to contact me at Sandler.
