OK I'm Interested, How Can You Help Me?
Starting any business is a risk, one which many people go into without fully assessing all the options, potential pitfalls and without sufficient business plans. Buying a franchise is no different, and in fact with so many options to chose from finding one that is right for you after considering all of the above and putting together the necessary plans can make it more challenging.

With over 20 years business experience I can help you understand the franchise market, the pros and cons, figure out if it is right for you, help you pick the franchise that is best for you, and of course help with your business plans, best company structure, even funding options. 

 

OK How Much?......FREE! (no catch)

That's correct, there's no charge for helping you choose a franchise, and why? well, that's because if you start a franchise, just like any other business you will still need support with accounts, book-keeping, payroll and many other admin functions your

Franchisor can't provide, but I can and if I've helped you become a franchisee I'd like to help you make it a success. Of course there's no obligation and you are free to choose whoever you wish to help you, but then I'm an optimist.
