I remember my first public speaking engagement in front of about 200 people. I was so nervous and afraid. I remember thinking, why am I the one up on stage? How come no one else is doing this? Thinking back, I now know exactly why. By Don Clayton
I remember my first public speaking engagement in front of about 200 people. I was so nervous and afraid. I remember thinking, why am I the one up on stage? How come no one else is doing this? Thinking back, I now know exactly why. It took someone else to help me realize my potential, to uncover my talents and to overcome my fear. Thanks to this friend, I’ve been able to achieve many successes in my life’s journey. I needed someone else to open my eyes to opportunity, whereas before I was without vision, and afraid.
Similarly, Certified Franchise Consultants (CFCs), are trained to help others realize they have an entrepreneurial beauty hiding behind their insecurities, doubts and fears. FranServe CFC Eric Feingold commented: “As a franchise consultant, I think my greatest asset is my ability to relate to my clients biggest fear – making the leap into ownership of a business. I’ve worked for the same corporation for the last 22 years and couldn’t express more how satisfying it is to be your own boss, along with the quality of life that can comes with it. Yes, there are stresses, but if it were easy, everyone would do it.”
Is it time for you to unveil your entrepreneurial spirit? Perhaps you’d like to help others realize their lifelong dream of freedom by owning their own business? CFCs are a lifeline to a lot of people considering franchise ownership. As the friend who helped me overcome my fears of public speaking, CFCs are specifically trained and certified to help others overcome their fears, insecurities and doubts. Every day, someone realizes they can have the freedom only an entrepreneur can have – and it all started by working and trusting in their CFC.
Perhaps a new career as a CFC helping others explore franchise ownership is the perfect match for you!
