Many of us are lucky to have a few mentors who come readymade with our life. If you're interested in franchising, than hopefully you have a few good entrepreneurs in your life who can give you some advice.
Who's telling you what you're worth? Is it your supervisor, or is it you? Every entrepreneur, over a long enough time horizon, makes what they're worth. We make money by the value we bring to other people's lives. In a job, entrepreneurs feel limited and underappreciated. The entrepreneur simply cannot accept this.
A perk of doing business within the framework of a franchise is the access to mentors with highly applicable experiences. From the Founders who conduct the training sessions, to the specialists at headquarters, to the network of franchisees, you'll be a part of an organization of people happy to give advice to you along your path to success.
