6 Steps to Choosing the Right Franchise for You - 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

6 Steps to Choosing the Right Franchise for You

1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Franchises provide a proven formula for running a successful business, because the franchisor can deliver a robust framework of training, operations, and client acquisition support combined with the best practices of potentially hundreds of years of experience gleaned from their network. These efficiencies and economies of scale enable franchise owners earn more, earn faster, and spend a fraction of the time, effort, and money than might be required to open and operate a similar business on their own. This class is for the empire builder, the risk-averse, and the curious!


Presenter:

Laura Rau is a Career Transition Coach with The Entrepreneur’s Source, providing an educational experience for people to explore business and franchise ownership. Laura volunteers as a SCORE mentor, at the Veterans Association of North County (VANC), and other career transition opportunities.
