CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Being your own boss sounds like a pretty sweet gig but how do you do it? One way is to own and operate a franchise of a national or regional business.
How do you know if franchising is the right fit for you?
Harry Sparks, owner of a local Window Genie franchise, and Lauren Cantor with The Entrepreneur's Source, visited WBTV News Sunday Morning to talk about the free North Carolina Franchise Expo Live.
Cantor shared the Franchise Quiz from The Entrepreneur's Source. You must answer yes to 5 out of 6 of the following questions to be right for franchise ownership:
1) Are you unfulfilled with your current career path?
2.) Are you willing to invest the time to explore franchise business ownership?
3.) Can you follow a system & be open to coaching and feedback?
4.) Are you generally optimistic and motivated to overcome obstacles that get in your way?
5.) Do you have the support of your spouse or partner?
6.) Are you willing to take some risk for future return?
The expo will be held in Durham on April 1st and 2nd. For more information, click here.
