What kind of franchise is the easiest for me to get started at?
I am a 23 year-old female wanting to open up my own business. As a first timer, do you think opening a smoothie and coffee franchise is the best way to go? I'd like a steady income as I learn about business and hopefully open my own franchise in the future. I have $50,000 in savings and my uncle will loan me the rest to start up my business, but everyone is telling me that I am too young. But I've been ready since I turned 18. I am currently working on my Bachelors in Business Administration and Management.
