FranNet Southern California Announces Free Workshop on How To Start Your Own Business or Franchise

A new workshop, aimed at out-placed professionals, individuals looking to make a change in their career and semi-retired men and women, is scheduled to take place on March 27, 2013 from 1pm to 3pm PST.

FranNet Southern California will be hosting this free two hour (1pm to 3pm PST) workshop which is geared towards teaching attendees proven strategies for starting their own business while reducing the risks of going into business for themselves.

Chief presenter, Page Nicol, VP of FranNet Southern California and a 25-year business and franchise developer, says persons attending this business workshop will get all their answers on How to Buy a Business or Franchise.  The workshop is aimed at answering these questions and more:

  • How do I assure my safety in a business and assure my chances of success?
  • Are there good white collar executive style franchises? It’s not just hamburgers, sandwiches and French fries any more.
  • Can I stay in my job and get a business started?
  • How do I find a business that I will really like and how do I get the facts before I buy!
  • Is financing available?
  • What types of franchises and businesses are available?

“This workshop will save them from making mistakes when choosing a business and potentially thousands of dollars,” says Nicol, who has extensive franchise and business ownership background including: 25 years in franchise development and commercial real estate, 23 years with Mail Boxes Etc (UPS Store) as master developer, and multi-unit owner, 10 years as a FranNet Associate in Southern California.

“Would you buy a house without using a real estate agent?  Why would you buy a business without using a franchise specialist?  Learn from a 25 year franchise and business ownership veteran, how to avoid the mistakes many people make when choosing to start their own business,” says Page, who currently lives in Southern California, where he has his regional office.
