Find the Perfect Business for YOU
People go into business for themselves for many different reasons. For some, it’s the allure of being responsible for their own success and future earnings. Some are drawn to the flexibility that comes with an entrepreneurial lifestyle. Others want a career where they feel they can truly make a difference in the lives of their customers and in the communities they serve.
Owning a franchise business can provide all of these benefits while avoiding much of the hard work required in the startup phase, but there’s another reason to consider taking this path: the opportunity to build equity in your business, equity that can have a lasting, positive impact on future generations.
If you’re ready to explore franchise and business opportunities, you’ve come to the right place. My name is Steve Schneider. I’m an IFPG Certified Franchise Consultant. My job is to mitigate the confusion found on the internet in a way that will help you more quickly and easily identify the franchise opportunities best suited for you. Since 2005, I have worked with many hundreds of franchise companies and helped thousands of people save time, effort and money by drastically streamlining the franchise discovery process.
The tools I use include an assessment of your goals, experience, strengths, weaknesses, financial ability, desired lifestyle, and more to help you identify the opportunities that present a realistic opportunity for long term success and happiness. This way, when you do decide to buy a franchise, you can be confident it’s the right one for you.
THE 4-STEP MATCHING PROCESS
Step 1. Information Gathering
Everything begins by discussing your goals, your funding options, your previous experience, and your personal and business preferences. Finding the right business is all about compatibility and leveraging your skills. A business that’s right for someone else may not be a good fit for you.
Step 2. Researching Your Options
After discussing what you’d like to accomplish and what you have to work with, I begin researching and speaking with franchisors on your behalf. Once I have 2 to 4 franchises that I feel meet your criteria, I’ll move on to Step 3.
Step 3. Discussing Your Potential Future Business
During this step you’ll hear about the franchises that may be a good fit for you. I’ll spend time discussing the attributes of these franchise models and why I thinks that you should research them further. I’ll revisit your goals and discuss how these franchises have the potential to meet them.
Step 4. Speaking with Your Future Franchise Partner (The Franchisor)
Once you have identified the franchises that you’re excited about and feel they are potentially “good fits” for you, I’ll introduce you to the Franchise Developer. This is an exciting step in the process as you’ll be hearing franchisors describe their “secret sauce,” the daily activities of their franchisees, what it takes to get started, and what it takes to grow your new business.
You’ll be sure to have the help and resources needed to make informed decisions throughout the process. And best of all, these services will never add a single penny to your new franchise purchase. You’ll never be asked to pay anything!
