Buying a Franchise vs. Buying a Stock Portfolio – Why Not Choose You?

If your day is consumed with thoughts about wanting a better retirement but you don't know where to turn, you're not alone. Historically, Americans have opted to buy a stock portfolio and hoped for spot-on investment advice and growth to sustain you and your family in retirement.

Have you ever thought about buying a franchise with your best friend or in an Investment Club?

Buying a franchise with a pattern of financial growth over time not only gives you a hard asset that builds equity but also puts you in control. Choose yourself to control your destiny as opposed to taking the investment advice of a stock firm or commissioned salesperson with a gross commission quota to meet.

Top 10 Regrets Franchisees Have, AFTER Starting a Franchise

If there’s one thing we hear a lot at America’s Best Franchises, it’s “I wish I’d known THAT before I bought my franchise.”

“THAT” can be critical to success in franchising. There are so many things you need to know to start and run a franchise. Following are the Top 10 mistakes franchisees will make when starting a franchise.

1. Rushing the decision to buy a franchise.

Compare competing brands and don’t get caught up in trendy businesses or brands. Don’t be pressured by a salesperson to make a decision for some arbitrary reason that isn’t important to the BIG picture.
