I work with people who want to explore becoming business owners as a career, investment or both. I coach business seekers through a proven process of finding franchise businesses that match their goals, lifestyle, experience, skills, flexibility needs and budget. Then I guide them each step of the way to reach a decision point.
At FranNet, we work a lot like executive recruiters. Rather than matching clients with a job, we match them with a business. So, there's no cost at all to franchise candidates for our services.
As a client, you'll start the process by discovering your own unique "business ownership DNA" via our assessment tool which is based on a combination of neuro-linguistic programming & social/emotional intelligences. Next, you and I will collaborate to build your personal business model. Using the FranNet process - perfected over appx. 30 years - ensures the businesses you'll evaluate fit you like a favorite pair of jeans.
I work with many people in career transition. Some are corporate refugees who have been restructured, bought-out or simply got fed up with their jobs. Others continue working full-time jobs and run a franchise on the side.
At FranNet, we look for businesses with a 90%+ success rate that can replace a 6-figure income when they're up and running. Many allow you to work flexible schedules and take weekends off. You’ll discover franchising is much more than French fries, subs and retail.
More about Carol Ward
As a 5th generation business owner, my business matching expertise is grounded in my personal quest to find freedom and an upside after 25 years in the corporate world where I led PR efforts. Initially, I met my goal by launching my own PR business. Later, I discovered my true passion by helping people find businesses via franchise ownership.
In 2013, I joined FranNet's HQ where I worked with 1000s of franchise candidates. Our family moved to Birmingham in 2016, when I started my business as part of FranNet of Michigan.
