Every moment counts on the journey to success!

I joined FranNet for the same reasons that I became a Business Tax Consultant and a Real Estate Consultant - I enjoy helping people and businesses make smart, strategic decisions, which helps translate into success with personal and business goals!

I have over twenty-four years of accounting and financial management experience including fifteen years of public and corporate taxation experience. I have worked for quasi-government entities, Big-4 and Regional accounting, tax and consulting firms and served as a Senior Tax Manager for a multi-national software company. Engaging with stakeholders at all levels of these organizations has honed my focus on achieving successful outcomes, whether by digging into the details or looking at the issues from the big picture perspective.

My role at FranNet is to provide you with education about franchising, collaborate with you in determining if franchise ownership is right for you, and to identify franchise businesses that will offer you the best opportunity for success. Using FranNet’s proven model and industry expertise and my own business and financial knowledge, I will match you to the business that’s best aligned with your personal and professional goals.

We’ll take inventory of your skills, experiences, and finances. We’ll also create a business model and a search strategy. I’ll gain a thorough understanding of your strengths, your goals and your dreams. Next, I’ll leverage my experience and FranNet’s vast resources to guide you to the franchised businesses that seem to be the best fit for you. Then I’ll stay by your side and guide you through your entire search.

I have always been committed to education and continually increasing my knowledge base. Whether it was by receiving my Bachelors in Accounting, completing my Masters in Taxation (MST), participating in nine months of focused leadership sessions, or volunteering to teach Junior Achievement classes at local schools. I look forward to using my gained knowledge and experiences to help you navigate the roads to franchise ownership.

I truly believe that every moment counts in your journey to success. Let me help you save time and money by steering you in the right direction in your franchise search. There is no cost for this service and no obligation to buy a franchise, and our knowledge of the franchise industry is unmatched. To arrange a consultation for franchise opportunities in Virginia and Washington D.C., contact me at 703-851-6009 or rhalstead@frannet.com. Start your journey to success today!
