These days having a business of your own is more appealing for some, compared to being employed in another company. Personally, I would prefer to be having my own business, too. Hubby and I have thought of getting a Franchise through one of the locally available franchising businesses, but we are still not totally decided on it. We have read some Franchises that are really booming, and I think it's great. I mean, if you are determined and you have the budget for it, then I think it's a good idea to grab those Franchise Opportunity that's within your reach. Of course, you have to be really interested in the business, or else it will be just like throwing money around.
I have read some magazines about franchising, and I think it's a good idea. It is a major decision for my family and I though, so that's the reason why we still haven't jumped into the bandwagon. We definitely see ourselves managing our own business in the near future, though. :)
What about you? Are you interested in managing your own business, even if it is a franchise? If you're quite new with the idea, then I suggest you visit some sites and get yourself familiar. It's a great way to start a business of your 'own' with lots of help from the franchising company. You will always have someone helping you out while you make business decisions. :)
