9779 Points: A Prime Candidate:
Congratulations! If you have answered the quiz questions frankly and received
a score in this range, your personality, traits, attitude, experience
and temperament are good matches with the attributes many franchisers
say are found in their most successful franchisees. You likely have a
welldefined desire to learn and a willingness to follow directions in
the quest of your own success. If you are financially able to do so, I
strongly suggest that you pursue becoming a franchisee.
7950 Points: A Potential Candidate:
Many of your traits are close to those found in top franchisee candidates;
however, you may not be completely committed to the concept of running
a franchised outlet of someone else's business. Although you may be interested
in becoming a franchisee, your quiz answers differ from those of more
"traditional" candidates; perhaps you have a strong streak of
independence or are more comfortable giving directions than taking them.
If you can ascertain where you differ from the "model" franchiseeby
reading the book How to Buy and Manage a Franchiseyou may be able to
determine if these are fundamental differences or merely slight discrepancies.
If the latter is true, you might be a good franchisee candidate.
500: A Questionable Candidate.
A low score on this test might indicate that you would be more comfortable
and successful as an independent business owner or a salaried employee.
You may be more independent and have a stronger business background than
most franchisees. Rather than trying to squeeze your individual talents
into a field you may not be suited, you should probably seek other opportunities.
If you still feel strongly committed to becoming a franchisee, examine
how your test responses differ from the suggested answers. This can uncover
areas in your personality or background that you need to reassess to improve
your chances of becoming a successful franchisee. You may want to take
the entrepreneur's quiz which is on this home page underHow to Start,
Finance, and Manage your own Small Business.
