Jon: I belong to the supporters of the franchising industry, but I am an individualist and solopreneur, so I think I would have a hard time to fit a regular big brand franchise concept. I am involved in a business hybrid that has elements of franchising (use of a specific concept, brand name) and direct selling (as an independent distributor of the this specific company).
