Chapter 1 : Reading Assignment First, let’s refresh our memories to recall and appreciate what the major forms of Business Ownership choices are. When reading the materials, please make written notes in reference of your present business and business idea. Compare it to other forms of business. What it means is to envision your business having some elements of all the described above business ownerships.
So, to give you an example: when you are reading about the sole proprietorship you will need to know what elements of this form of ownership your business already has, and what elements will you be losing if you chose to switch from this form to a franchise. You will need this information in this unit as well as for the final exam (hint, hint).Do not forget to note your findings in this week’s Learning Journal.

Part 11. Describe your smart watch business as a franchise. Refer to at least three other forms of business ownership by saying why you designed your franchise the way you did. Indicate what factors evident in other forms of ownership you took into account. Make sure that this is clear to your readers. Have at least three paragraphs in your entry. Describe your franchise in the first paragraph, describe how it will function in the second paragraph and invite others to consider it in the third paragraph.
2. Pose your question trying to attract investors in the fourth paragraph. Make it an attractive choice by marketing your global business and by comparing it to other forms of ownership—show off your knowledge and showcase your product offered in a franchise. Remember, there is a lot of competition out there, so make your ad as attractive as possible in order to elicit interest.
