The Traits That Define A Successful Franchisee

There's endless conjecture over what makes a successful franchisee. Is it an intuitive thing? A genetic predisposition? A skill learned in business school? Or none of the above?

Entrepreneur recently outlined the eight attributes they feel are consistent in all successful franchisees. It's a not scientific guide, but it's proof that there are over-riding abilities that turn up in many successful entpreneurs. If you were building a successful franchisee as if it were a robot, you might include the following abilities:

  • Motivated by results
  • Big thinker
  • Chief cheerleader
  • Optimist
  • People person
  • Seatbelt enthusiast
  • Resilient
  • Cool and collected

If you were to loop all of those attributes together, you'd say a successful franchisee is a person who can work well with others, remain postive and encouraging, especially when the chips are down. You'll need to find the ideal system for your expernience and personal demands, but all things considered these 8 attributes will take you far in franchsising, and in life.
