Show Notes Chapter Markers

What if you could be handed a business model & marketing plan that was already proven to work - and all you had to do was run with it. That’s the power of franchising, a lesser-known opportunity for those interested in entrepreneurship (and no, it’s not just about fast-food chains).

In this episode, I sit down with franchise expert Diane Pleuss, of The Franchise Fitter, to learn everything there is to know about franchising. She explains what franchising is and who it’s for, the benefits of franchising, and how to choose the right franchise business for you. Diane also shares her own personal story of how she got started in helping others begin a franchising business and why she loves it.
