1. Do you believe that many people are breaking away from the rat race in the corporate world today?
Without a doubt. People are coming to the realization that the security of the “traditional” workplace of a long term stable career, benefits, pension plans and a gold watch is a thing of the past.
Today if people want to take control of their financial freedom, they need to look into other options outside of traditional employment such as business ownership and franchising.
2. What does it mean to be your own boss and have control over your life?
If you think of all the time, talent and loyalty we devote to an employer who: 1. We are building their wealth and equity. 2. Has complete control over your income and lifestyle. 3. Who can lay you off with less than two weeks notice, just think what can happen if you invest that same energy into building wealth and equity for yourself and your family. Americans work more hours than anyone else in the industrialized world. Being your own boss allows your to invest in the best “pro-active” investment available today – yourself.
3. What is the Entrepreneur's Source franchising opportunity all about?
TES is a one source, one stop Entrepreneurial resource center for all things Entrepreneurial. So if you’re an individual looking to be an Entrepreneur we provide Coaching and
Resources to help you find the right opportunity. If you’re a business owner looking for help in your business, TES can help you find the right solution that will help you take your business to the next level.
4. Why do you think Entrepreneur's Source would be a great opportunity for a mom?
As a work at home mom, TES provides the options of both a flexible work schedule and the much needed interaction with business professional, networking groups and business to business services. TES provides an outstanding support system for our women franchisees through WEBB (Women Empowered by Business). This organization provides support and resources for the women of TES and well as our clients looking to get into business ownership.
5. Describe your ideal franchisee.
Our ideal franchisee will have the desire to coach, mentor and guide individuals and business owners to reach their dreams of business ownership and success utilizing our unique discovery process.
6. What kind of training do you offer your franchisees?
Training is not a one time event, one time event, but an on-going process. We start with Pre-Training geared toward activities that need to be accomplished for the successful launch of a TES practice. Our E-Source Coaches attend an 8 day Phase 1 Academy where they learn systems and skills designed for marketing and servicing our TES Clients. They are supported by a Regional Developer who works closely with them during their 26 week jump start program which is a step by step program that outlines all the activities that will be taking place over the first six months of business.
7. How successful is your business today?
TES has over 250 offices nationally and internationally which puts our franchise at the top 4% in growth for all franchise concepts. We are the largest coaching franchise today with over 33% of the market locations.
8. What is the most gratifying thing about being a part of the Entrepreneur's Source franchise?
The feeling you get when you help someone achieve their dreams and helping them look at possibilities that they never would have looked at on their own.
9. Any advice for our mompreneurs?
There are many different vehicles that will help you reach your dreams and allow you to take control of your financial future. Surround yourself with people and resources that will help you reach your goals and use that experience to help others create the flexibility and lifestyle that business ownership will bring you.
