January 2015


If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to be your own boss, 2015 is it! Stop waiting and start doing.2015 promises to be a great year for the franchise industry. For thefifth year in a row, franchise businesses are expected to grow and create more jobs at a faster pace than the rest of the economy. (Read the International Franchise Association’s (IFA)  Franchise Business Outlook for 2015.) What are you waiting for?

We rang in the New Year with increased optimism overall on the economy. The stock market is at an all-time high, the unemployment rate continues to decline and gas is cheaper than we’ve seen in years. With consumer confidence high and the economy at its best in years, now is the time to realize your entrepreneurship dreams!

With over 3,000 franchises available, there are many options to choose from based on your skills, lifestyle goals and financial situation. Whether you plan on keeping your day job or want to own and operate the business full-time, franchising could be a good fit for you.

If you’re currently employed and wish to keep your job, it’s certainly possible to remain employed AND grow a potentially lucrative business on the side. Read about how you can do this in my blog for Entrepreneur magazine online.

If you’re like many of the transitioning professionals I work with, you might be fed up with the corporate world and ready to strike out on your own. A brick and mortar business might be better suited for you. Whatever your goals, I can help you find the right business for you!

Let 2015 be the year you realize your dreams of owning a business.

Yours in franchising,
