Is it an unrealistic idea or a foolish thing to do to leave B4 so that I can go out and start franchising my very own business?

Trust came from relative I didn't even know. I was the last of the surviving blood on that side of the family. Imagine the surprise on my 18th birthday.


If you are not willing to lose it all, then it's not the right time


You need to do a lot of research but with that cash you could finance something like a laundromat and get some passive income that allows you to still work. Or look into fast food franchising. I don't think it's foolish at all.

Alternatively investing in real estate could be lucrative and if you get enough rental properties that can easily be a full time job.


Must be nice to be a trust fund kid


If you're business is stable enough I think it's realistic. B4 will always be here so just make sure you leave on good terms.

You need a pretty sizable amount of capital, but if you have that yeah go for it. Something I've been considering myself if I can scrape together a few hundred k in the next decade and decide to forgo bschool

Currently have about 250k in a trust fund set up for me

Afraid that I am venturing into the unknown and will blow my fortune


I wish I had a 250k trust fund I'd drop public accounting in a heart beat. Don't be afraid to start the franchise. Only thing you have to lose is money you never thought you were going to have in the first place. That being said do your research and you'll be fine.

I'd consider buying some rental properties with that money instead. Not now though. Wait a few years for the next down turn.
