Often corporate executives seek us out to make a change. Sometimes this change is a result of a business direction which eliminates their long held role in an organization. These individuals are often caught off guard. Out of impulse they jump in to a job search for a similar role in a new company. As they send out resumes after resume without response they begin to question if a similar job in another company is really what they want. While others who are seeking change, do so to have a more significant meaning in the place they work and the contribution they can make. Finally, there are people seeking change because they no longer identify with the corporate world and want to choose a different path entirely.
No matter the catalyst for the person who calls us, they have a common goal, to make a significant change in the way they live. They have decided to make a lifestyle choice.
We choose to define lifestyle as your control over your own time. Someone once told me that “time is the only thing you can’t get any more of” and I could not argue with the simplicity of their logic. Therefore, it follows that the ultimate in mastering your life is being able to control how and where you spend your time.
You may have some questions, below are the most common questions I hear, so I will be straight up front and answer these for you now.
What is a Certified Franchise Selection Coach?
The fact that I am certified is very important to you. It means I have been trained to help you and not sell you. My job is to pre-qualify you, customize a franchise search for you based on your criteria and to stay with you during your entire franchise search, evaluation and purchase. I am on your side and I will provide you with knowledge and tools to aid you along the way.
Why do I need a Certified Franchise Selection Coach?
With so many franchise opportunities available today it is much easier to choose the wrong franchise than the right one. There are over 2,800 franchise concepts available in the United States alone. In addition not all franchises are created equally and even the top rated franchises are not always the best fit for all individuals. Our process takes a close look at your goals, experience, strengths, weaknesses, desired lifestyle and more to help you find the opportunities that present a realistic opportunity for long term success and happiness.
How much will it cost me to work with you?
The truth is, my services are free to you. I work much like a real estate broker. Should you decide to purchase one of the franchise concepts that I helped you find and review, the Franchisor will pay me a commission for my service.
Will you sell or share the information I give you?
Absolutely not. Any information you share with me is used solely to conduct a confidential and customized franchise search for you.
The process of a free franchise search
In today's economic environment, most franchisors are swamped with inquires. They look to certified advisors like us to bring them candidates that meet their financial requirements, as well as, those that would likely be successful with their franchise concept. Your information is never shared without your approval to do so.
Customize Franchise Search.
Based on the information you share with me during your pre-qualification, I will establish search criteria that are unique to you. Our search will include a presentation of the franchise concepts. Once you have chosen a concept, we will make a welcomed introduction to the Franchisor and you will receive priority treatment.
Validation & Purchase.
You won't be alone. We will supply you with tools and guidance based on our years of experience in the industry to assure you receive the information needed to make a good decision. Additionally, we can help you with referrals to financing options specifically for franchisees and a franchise attorney to review your franchise agreement.
