  • Your personality - Are you a people person? Are you good at working with people and leading a team? Or, do you work beter on your own?
  • Your passion - think about what kid of business you want to run. Do you want a business which is more hands-on  and out on the road or would you prefer to be the business manager working from home or both?

Finding a business that plays to your strengths will substantially improve your chances of franchise success.
