Thanks for sharing this awesome info:)

This is very informative and thanks again for sharing!!

A definite eye opener.
And to think, Franchisees don't actually own their businesses. They're little more than employees without a wage, in a massive amount of debt to their employer. They have the illusion of independence but they have to run the treadmill faster, harder and longer than they would in a J.O.B. (just over broke).

Thanks for sharing.......give me WA any day.

Have yourself a wonderful WA day.

cosmicradio Premium
You, too, Johan!

Me again, Many years ago I bought into a Franchise for tyre sealants in South Africa. The tyre sealant marketing was and is still a highly competitive world and very difficult to get a break. However, I did not do too badly and managed to get some good contracts with mining companies, Postal services and many farmers all over SA.........BUT!! are never the real owner of the business as you are told and dictated to as what to do, what prices to charge. I did not feel free at all and on many an occasion felt boxed in.
Never ever again.............WA is tops and there's nothing else like it!
Just my 2cents worth.

I sort of weighed up $200,000 or $500 I guess the latter won.
cosmicradio Premium
Yeah, for me, too, Mike!
MKearns Premium
Service franchises like Janiking for cleaning and medical billing services are among the lowest Rick. Here is a local assortment.

There's differences between franchises and WA for sure. Both offer systems, however to be successful there won't be much flexibility with a franchise. In order to be successful, you must follow their rules to the letter.

WA offers you a system, but you must determine (through networking and lessons) how to apply it to your niche and make it successful. There's no track record and no proven history due to no two people having ever done things exactly the same way.

You can make a lot of money, or lose a lot of money, with a franchise is a much shorter time since most of the national marketing campaign is already in full swing. Like McDonalds, many times you will start seeing cash flowing the day the doors open.

The franchiser's experience, the ongoing national marketing, and the proven system is expensive but returns can be very profitable. The above figures provide ONLY the franchise license fees and not the total required start up investment (which is much higher).

Franchising is another way to build personal wealth to consider, if you have the means. Sorry for being long winded. :-)

PatsyC Premium
Yes Wealthy Affiliate IS a Deal!
cosmicradio Premium
Yes, it is, Patsy! :)
SondraM Premium
Actually, the variety and diversity in this long list shows that success can be found in any niche.

I think WA is an amazing deal for those of us that want to build a business from scratch. Franchising is a good option for other people.

I hope you have a great Sunday
