Instead of college why not buy a franchise instead?
I read in a recent post featured on another franchise blog about the “waste of time and money” college is! Not my words. But hey this post did make some great arguments as to why you should buy into a franchise instead of spending a fortune to attend college and then to end up with a degree that is not applicable within the business world.
So let’s hear it! Firstly the cost of a four-year college degree ranges from $51,184 to $121, 468, or for a private college entry for four years $175,920. That is a lot of money and a lot of time spent learning skills that are merely applicable when you do finally start working within the business world. Wouldn't it be better to invest all this money in a franchise or business opportunity, where you will learn about real life work experiences and business skills and earn money instead of paying off college fees?
Secondly, look at all the successful people out there who didn’t finish college, but started their own businesses instead-
Bill Gates ($56 billion), Paul Allen ($18 billion), Michael Dell ($15 billion) Larry Ellison ($21 billion), John Simplot ($3 billion), Darren Herman, Advertising (24, $17 million)
And for more inspiration, as if you needed any! Take a look at the following successful young Americans who are all making millions outside of school and college-
Ben Casnocha Software company (18 years old, $6 million), Brad Galiette Advertising (21, $1million), Noah Glass Mobile Ordering System (25, $1.8 million),
The argument is as follows: if you spend the same amount of money you would spend for the duration of college and invested this in a franchise or business opportunity, don’t you think in four years time you’ll be reveling in your new found wealth, employing recent graduates?
Now there is something to think about next time you consider: franchising v’s college….Methinks franchise!
Let me know what you think of this debate franchising v's college...
