Determine if business ownership is the right path for you.
Start by downloading Roadmap to Success
I’m a business matchmaker who helps people take control of their income, lifestyle and wealth through business ownership. I’ve guided people of all ages, backgrounds and experience to find the right franchise to reach their goals. Whether you want to escape burnout, are retired, or recognize that you should be reaping the rewards of your work performance, we should connect to explore ideas and options.
WHY CONSIDER THE FRANCHISE OPTION?
Data shows franchise opportunities are a safer bet for long-term success than startups or existing business purchases. A five-year study showed 92% of FranNet franchise placements were still in business after 2 years, compared to only 67% of other small business ventures (according to studies by the U.S. Census Bureau). After a 5 year period, FranNet placements showed an 85% success rate, compared to only 50% of other small businesses.
If you’re interested in mitigating the risk of business ownership, exploring a franchise may be a good path. Imagine starting your own business with a partner who provides templates, training, support, as well as proven and repeatable processes in sales, marketing and operations. A franchise can give entrepreneurs a head start by providing foundational business support throughout the business journey.
With a proven process which helps assess your strengths, weaknesses, interests and financial standing, I can help match you with the best franchise opportunities.
There are over 3,000 franchise concepts in over 90 different categories – I want to help you find the right one for your interest, income, and lifestyle.
