    Thanks, Joel! 

    I believe we have spoken before. I think franchising plays an important role in entrepreneurship, and I'm glad to see that it provides an avenue for all people to start a business and generate revenue.

    Thanks for the feedback, @FranchiseKing! There are some great supporting statistics in this article that encourage the notion that franchising is on the rise, especially for women and minorities. Education is certainly at the forefront of that.

    If an aspiring entrepreneur has dreams to open a franchise and doesn't know where to start, what would be your number one suggestion for him or her?

    Cara-yes, more women are starting businesses. That is good! Best place to start: With yourself. Figure out your top skills and match them to franchise opportunities that will allow them to shine-so you can become a profitable franchise owner.
