Roadmap to Business Ownership + Financial Strategies 

Career transition can be a catalyst for introspection and change, and many executives use this time to explore their dream of becoming their own boss.  Business ownership can provide greater balance, additional income, long-term financial security and can hedge against economic and career changes.  

Join us to learn about the roadmap followed by many senior-level executives just like you on their journey toward entrepreneurship. What does it take to own your own business and will it work for your lifestyle?

This forum will cover the following topics:
•    Semi-absentee (keep your job) and full-time business options
•    Pros & Cons of business vs. franchise ownership
•    Why investing in a franchise is more secure than you might think
•    Financing strategies in the current environment
