1. What opportunities are popular or doing well at this time?
2. What do you think you have the necessary skills to be able to sell or promote well?
3. Do you have any education or skills that will make a particular category easier for you?
4. Do you have any contacts or available help in a particular industry that will make it easier for you?
5. What categories are of interest to you or do you think you could get passionate about?
These questions will help you choose a franchise that is going to do well in the business world and also one that you can excel at. It will vary from person to person so what works for someone else may not be the best option for you or at the time you are choosing to pursue your franchise. This is why it is important to do your research properly.
