Franchising Is A Great Way To Start As An Entrepreneur - I just don’t understand why you wouldn’t want to walk and then jog and then run - particularly if you are a younger entrepreneur and don’t have a ton of work experience. If you haven’t seen it done before, why not learn it yourself in a structured environment with a much higher degree of success? I am most certainly not saying that franchise businesses are what you should base your entrepreneurial career around. In fact, I am saying you shouldn’t. Go out there and start a company that really is new and different, but consider owning and operating a franchise business first.
