What the Heck is a Franchise Consultant?
Striving for perfection is good but waiting to proceed until perfection is achieved is unnecessary. Sue Derene, FranServe Affiliate and Certified Franchise Consultant (CFC) puts it this way: “There’s no perfect time to go into business for yourself, but starting the process is progress!” Along that same narrative, David Solomon, CEO of Goldman Sachs, is quoted as saying, “I’m a big believer in progress over perfection.” Working with a Certified Franchise Consultant gives future entrepreneurs this kind of wisdom it takes to step out of one’s shell and take control of one’s future.
Franchise consultants are certified in helping people move forward in the progression of building their franchise future. Franchise consultants are people like you and me who’ve been properly trained and certified to help people become franchise entrepreneurs. When someone wants to explore franchise ownership, rather than waiting for the “perfect” time, they can turn to the help of a franchise consultant to help move them forward. In addition, franchise consultants can also help connect people to funding sources to start their franchise business.
Gene Thurston, CFC explains it this way, “I’ve been a business owner most of my professional career, and I can say that there never is a PERFECT time to invest in a business or a franchise. If I had waited for the perfect time, I would never have become a business owner myself. I always coach my clients to thoroughly vet any opportunity that they may be considering, but once they get to 80% certainty that a good fit has been identified, it is time to make your decision. One rarely gets to 100% certainty when evaluating a business/franchise opportunity, and anxiety, doubt, and fear almost always creep in before making such an important decision. I try to lift my clients up and let them know that there is no better investment that one can make when they invest in themselves.”
Franchise consulting can be a very rewarding business. Imagine helping others achieve the dream of business ownership through franchising all while building a successful business for yourself. Franchise consulting is a flexible, work-from-home business that can be very lucrative. For many, it is the perfect choice for them and they love that they can work from anywhere in the world, and all without the restrictions of a territory! Perhaps franchise consulting is for you.
