001A: 10 Critical Steps to Buying Your Best Franchise – Part 1

Jim Deitz, The Franchise Doctor
Listen to this episode
  • Welcome to the launch of How to Buy Your Best Franchise-The Podcast This is the only daily podcast that interviews existing franchise owners to explore the journey that others have taken to achieve their goal of Franchise Ownership. What were their thoughts, dreams, visions, road-blocks, difficulties in finding, evaluating, investing, opening, and growing their franchise? Are there tools, tips, inspirations, resources or books that helped them on their path? What would they do differently, given the chance? Regardless of the industry, each of our guests provide insights that will help you on your “Franchise Adventure.” Hear their thoughts on your schedule–start, stop, back up, take notes, and comment or question if you wish. That’s the advantage of audio podcasts.
  • In podcast episodes that end with the letter “A,” we provide training to help you become a successful franchise owner–as soon as you’re qualified. If you listen to our 30-minute episodes–on demand–follow our suggestions, read and study to strengthen your business knowledge, research and evaluate offerings in the franchise industry and have the courage and self-confidence to invest in yourself, you, too, can be an “overnight success” in franchising… in only 1 to 10 years.
  • If you’re serious about becoming a business owner, you owe it to yourself and your family to follow this podcast for at least the first 25 episodes. By then, we believe you’ll understand that almost every first-time business owner should start with a franchise. Just as you wouldn’t buy a set of golf clubs and head out on the course without lessons, intelligent first-time business owners can’t afford to waste precious time and money experimenting with a start-up. Without a proven business model, the great majority of new companies fail within two years of launching. If you’ve run a successful business for 5 or more years, you may beat these odds but franchising has proven for over 50 years to be your best bet for getting started in entrepreneurship.
