Look…we all want a business we can make a bunch of money with that revolves around our passion.

The reality is that business probably doesnโ€™t exist.

Now, if you can get passionate aboutโ€ฆ

โœ… More freedom in your life

โœ… Building a team of people who love working for you (and want to run the business for you), and

โœ… Creating an income-producing asset that you can sell one dayโ€ฆ

…youโ€™ll find some interesting franchises to explore.

Youโ€™ve probably heard a big reason new businesses fail is because they run out of money. The truth is thatโ€™s probably because they used the wrong funding strategy to begin with.

One of the biggest advantages to investing in certain* franchises are the funding options available.

โœ… There are some โ€œlow-money downโ€ options through the SBA that donโ€™t require a ton of cash.

โœ… Thereโ€™s also a way you can tap into pre-tax retirement funds like a 401k plan without having to pay taxes and penalties.

*I say โ€œcertainโ€ because the SBA and banks will only fund franchises they feel comfortable with.

Ever scrolled through those franchise ranking websites like youโ€™re shopping for a new frying pan on Amazon?

Well, just like how Amazon controls which frying pans you see, so can those franchise-ranking websites.

Plus, as soon as you find a franchise you think is interesting and request more information, get ready to become a very popular person because your information probably just got sold to a bunch of other franchisors and brokers who are hungry for a lead!

Thereโ€™s an easier way to find the right franchises to explore that most people donโ€™t know about.

Look, just because a franchisor publishes a juicy Item 19 in their FDD doesnโ€™t mean anything.

There are a number of layers to a franchise that need to be analyzed to make sure itโ€™s the right fit.

So buckle up and prepare for a thorough process that includesโ€ฆ

โœ… A number of conversations with a sales rep franchise the franchisor whoโ€™s going to make their business seem like the greatest thing since the Magic Eraser

โœ… Reading lots of dense text written by attorneys in the FDD

โœ… Having a number of discussions with actual franchise owners of that brand (and not just sitting on conference calls or listening to recorded calls)

โœ… A few of your family and friends telling you โ€œyouโ€™re crazyโ€

โœ… Talking to different funding companies that specialize in funding franchises, and

โœ… Some sleepless nights as you think about this life-changing decision.
