David Barnett | Franchise Warnings — The Best Advice For Those Looking To Make The Jump To Entrepreneurship

Franchising Advice

On this week’s episode of Franchise Freedom, we speak with special guest, David Barnett. David is the author of seven books on small business transactions and local investing, hosts a YouTube channel with hundreds of videos on buying, selling, financing, and managing SMEs, and has been working with small businesses for over 20 years. David is multi-faceted, and has gained experience in franchising, brokering, and funding before ultimately moving into small business consulting full-time.

“I ended up starting this sort of side hustle, not as a business broker, but as a consultant, someone who would work on deals and help to guide and coach people through them. Eventually, I left my job at the bank with a package, and I started my full time consulting career, which is what I do today, helping people buy and sell businesses as a consultant, not a broker,” says David.

We chat about David’s career journey, as well as:

  • His formative entrepreneurial moments
  • His book, Franchise Warnings
  • His advice for those looking to make the jump to entrepreneurship
