I’m Rick, the coach, mentor, and entrepreneur behind the A Franchise
There are many ways to begin the discovery process – most ways are wrong. Different franchises require different sets of skills and personalities.
Together we’ll determine what you would be good at and what would fit your abilities. What are your financial parameters, lifestyle objectives, and location preferences? We will figure out the characteristics of your perfect franchise.
Not all franchises are equal. We know which franchisors are growing and which are not. We know which have happy franchisees and proven systems and which do not.
We’ll identify multiple franchise companies that are worthy of your consideration. Our goal is to find franchise systems that fit you in every way
Now it’s time to carefully and diligently explore each targeted franchise. You must know what you are doing and make sure you cover all your bases.
We will speak every week and more often if needed. During each call we will review what you have accomplished, answer your questions, and provide detailed coaching and guidance regarding the next steps.
We cannot make the decision for you – nor should we. All we can do is provide you with a thoughtful sounding board and well reasoned decision making approaches.
This is the time when you will feel the most excitement and the most fear. Our job will be to keep you balanced so you can make the best decision based on reasonable expectations.
Over the years, we will say in touch. As you build your business you will have good days, and you will have some challenging days. We are here for you.
We want nothing more than your success, and if we can provide advice, guidance or coaching as you build your business, we are excited to do so.
“Thanks so much for meeting with my wife and I personally. Your assessment of our two different personalities was right on target. I enjoyed how you streamlined the “franchise battle” for us with your great book and all your patience. We truly are two tough personalities to deal with, but you nailed us in your coaching and counseling. You never gave us the answer to the franchise quiz, but you gave us all the insight to make an informed decision.”
“Rick, YOU ARE THE BEST! And we are blessed to have met you.”
