It’s no secret that the economy’s backslide has been trying on most, if not all, individuals. Entrepreneurs have felt the squeeze as well, as a short-sided economy does not always allow for growth, expansion and creativity. So it is important to make smart decisions if you are thinking about opening a franchise. There are three important things to assess: 

1. Self: What kind of business allows you to be obtain your financial and personal goals? If you have a family, what kinds of franchises can allow you to be home with them as much as you want to be? Would you make a good boss? How many employees do you see yourself being able to manage, if any? Are you motivated enough to be self-employed?

2. Financing: What kind of financing will you be able to get? Many banks are tightening up, even though many are still lending. What kinds of franchises will allow you to secure a loan from a bank or other lender?

3. What industry are you most interested in? Are you up for the commitment of owning a fast food chain or restaurant? Or would you prefer something that is less maintenance?
