    Name: Franchises - An Easier Way to Owning a Business
    Date: January 12, 2022
    Time: 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM EST
    Event Description:

    Owning a franchise is one way to become an entrepreneur. A franchisor provides the planning, brand name and promotional support the franchisee needs to get started. Attend this workshop to see if a franchise is right for you.

    You will have the opportunity to hear from local franchise owners live, including

    > Presenter, Heidi Simos

    > Panelist Craig Linsky

    > Panelist Debra Koehler

    > Panelist Sesn Rotolo

    > Panelist Edward Hawkins

    Find out why they decided to take the franchise route versus starting from scratch. 

    In the webinar we will answer the following questions:

    > Have you always wanted to be your own boss but didn't quite know how to get started?

    > Would you like to take control of your future and live a more flexible lifestyle?

    > Do you want to build equity and wealth for your future?

    If you've answered "yes" to one or more of the above questions, this workshop may be right for you! Join us for an interactive workshop, including:

    > Understand what it takes to be a franchise business owner

    > Learn about the advantages of becoming your own boss

    > How to find the right franchise

    and many other topics.

    Before becoming a career transition coach, presenter Heidi Simos was a successful business woman, working in both the retail and education industries. Early in her career Heidi decided to purchase a learning center franchise and within 4 years, became an award-winning, multi-unit owner of 8 centers across Florida.

    Today, Heidi's mission is to educate the 70% of the American population who have a strong desire to be self-sufficient, and coach them to determine if a franchise business is the right fit. Heidi is proud to say that she has helped many people, including several Veterans, achieve the dream of becoming their own boss!
