Franchising Your Retirement

Posted by Jim Otto on Thu, Oct 11, 2018 @ 13:10 PM

retirementMany of you may never have seen this before, but the Social Security Administration used to send you in the mail what your monthly Social Security benefit would be at retirement (this info can now be accessed online on their website). What always stuck out to me was a statement on the front page, " Social security should not be your only source of retirement income, you will need to have other sources of income at retirement".  
 
I was recently asked the following question  on a social media forum that I was participating in: "Is a franchise a good way to create additional retirement income?" My answer is both "yes" and "no". 
  • Yes - If you do your homework and you understand the time commitment that it's going to take to own and manage a business. 
  • No - If you are looking for a totally passive income opportunity like a rental property. Most franchises will require you to have business skills and the ability to manage people.
 
  • Yes - Because most franchise's earn between 10 and 15%, well above current rates that banks and bonds are paying.
  • No - If you have a low tolerance for risk. There is no guarantee that if you buy a franchise you will be successful.  
 
Creating retirement income comes down to diversifying your portfolio into as many income producing  assets that you can find. Because of the return and the limited options in this low yield environment, a Franchise may be the perfect  option for you.
