I am an entrepreneur/investor that uses franchising as a vehicle to success. Over the years I have been involved in many aspects of franchising.
In my mid 20’s, I bought my first franchise in Kansas City. I started as a multi-unit franchisee with a top-rated retail franchise, and finished the first year as one of the company’s top new franchisees.
Over the next 9 years I expanded the business to 12 locations and bought the Regional Development (RD) rights for Austin, Texas. I grew that RD from 5 offices in 2004 to 42 offices before I sold it back to the parent company. Since selling my first franchise in 2011, I have accelerated my growth and bought 3 more franchise brands as either RD or multi-unit franchisee.
I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota on an 80-acre playground of outdoor fun with my wife and 3 daughters. I own several franchisees in Southern California that are all run by my management team. I have weekly calls with them and travel to California once or twice a year. Most businesses are not capable of being run like that, but the ones that can be (and are cash cows) are called HOMERUNS!
I have been helping people explore franchising since 2005 after I experienced success. I have personally helped hundreds of people find a franchise that is the perfect fit for them.
I love helping people stuck in Corporate America or entrepreneurs ready for diversification to find the right franchise, and I will show you the exact same process that I have personally used when buying my franchises. I will share things with you that I have learned from personal experience as well as information that I have from my personal network who are involved in every segment of franchising.
My goal is to help you identify what you really want or need in a business versus what you think you want. I will help you shortcut your process and save you a massive amount of time researching by narrowing the thousands of franchises to the one that fits you.
