What should you expect when you make an appointment with a FranNet consultant? We’d like to answer that question and demystify the process starting from your first meeting with your Consultant. First of all, you will meet with a FranNet Consultant that is local–one who understands your community, the business atmosphere, and the lay of the land in “your neck of the woods,’ as NBC weatherman Al Roker likes to say. But we’d like to delve a little deeper into what you’ll experience along the way.
Deciding to own a business of your own and become your own boss is a weighted decision. It shouldn’t be taken lightly and it can be the important first step to changing your future for the better. People come to FranNet in many different ways. Some are referred to us directly from others who have benefitted from the process and continue to enjoy success. Others managed to catch one of the many in-person seminars or online webinars on the topic of franchising and business ownership. And others, already sold on the idea of franchising as a viable route to business ownership, requested a helping hand for navigating the process itself and making the right selection.
That’s what we were born to do. For over three decades, we’ve taken our client candidates on their own personal entrepreneurial journey. We want you to be as prepared as possible before you sign on the dotted line.
During the franchise investigative process, expect to be surprised at our low-key approach. We begin in a comfortable setting, only asking questions about you. What are your life goals? Tell us about your career and background. What types of businesses appeal to you? What level of commitment are you looking to make? It’s a very open-ended process and we don’t fill in the blanks for you. As you supply the answers, we collect the data.
You will create an Entrepreneur Profile to help us evaluate your options. As you may already be aware, there are thousands of franchise concepts available in the marketplace and we want to make sure that we narrow down the right fit for your combined answers. Some of the recommendations your FranNet consultant may make could surprise you. Many of our most satisfied franchise owners today once couldn’t imagine themselves at the helm of a certain type of business. But that’s where the Entrepreneur Profile led to finding the right fit, which is one of the many reasons we’re so successful at what we do.
The FranNet Entrepreneur Profile, in effect, is a way for us to propel you through the complicated process of landing a business of your own. Many people who have completed a profile report that it’s a true time-saver. At FranNet, there are roughly four objectives, completed in this order, which solidify in the Entrepreneur Profile process:
- We help you understand the pros and cons of owning your own business
- We have you determine and document those lifestyle goals that you want a business to help you attain
- We recommend franchise opportunities that may let you achieve those goals
- We guide you through a process of due diligence that will allow you to make an informed decision
At its heart, the Entrepreneur Profile process is designed to meet one goal – to allow you to make a fully informed decision about your future as a business owner. If you’d like to get started, so would we. Simply reach out to your local FranNet representative and get started on your own personal entrepreneurial journey through the FranNet proprietary profile process.
