Before the Expo

Leading up to the Franchising & Business Opportunities Expo, it's a good idea to think about yourself and your goals.

  • What are your strengths and capabilities, and how might they help you succeed?
  • What type of business' appeal to you? Franchises are available in almost every sector of business, from food, retail, service and business to business.
  • And importantly, think about your finances and how much you will be willing to invest in a franchise. Think about your assets, liabilities, whether you are thinking about a business as a primary or secondary source of income, and what other sources of finances or security might be available.
