Topic: Panel Discussion: Legal Answers to Small Business + Franchise Ownership

Have you ever thought about owning your own business, but were worried about legal and liability issues? Have your questions answered by a franchise expert and a small business attorney.

This casual panel discussion will allow you see if entrepreneurship makes sense for you as an investment diversification a or full-time occupation. You’ll also learn the pros and cons of small business ownership. All options are open for discussion.

Our panel will cover the following open-ended topics:

  • Legal aspects of business ownership
  • Manager-run (keep your job) and full-time business options
  • Pros + cons of business vs. franchise ownership
  • Why investing in a franchise is more secure than you might think
