Tri-Valley IMC Consultants Forum -- Monthly Breakfast Meeting
Trick or treat! No, unfortunately securing new clients isn't as easy as going door to door for Halloween candy. Ghoulish costumes aren't usually appreciated either. What CAN work great is a proven business model and support from a large organization.
Ever considered buying a franchise? Continuing with our Cool and Clever Concepts for Consultants theme for the fall, this month we will learn the ins and outs of franchising and share ideas about how this model can be used to grow a consulting practice. Mark the date and reserve your seat!
Franchising 101 For Management Consultants
Most studies have shown that 70 90% of Americans wish they owned their own business, yet only about 12% do. When asked why, most people just don't know what they would do, how to get started and how to grow the business. The reputable franchise systems address this problem and make it possible for people with no business ownership experience to start and business and be successful.
There are 3,000 franchise systems covering 75 different categories. There is no way for the average person to sort through that many opportunities to find the ones that are the best set for their skills, objections, finances etc. Attendees will learn about types of franchising opportunities, typical costs, how to evaluate, and more.
