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.
