I'm a Husband.
An Uncle (the funny one, according to my nieces and nephews)
I really love animals...especially dogs. And kids.
Work-wise, I own Franchise Selection Specialists Inc. My late father started the company back in 1990-under a different name.
I'm known as The Franchise King.®
What I Do
1. I'm a franchise ownership advisor.
I work one-on-one with people who are exploring franchise ownership I teach them and coach them on how to choose, research, and buy the right ones for them.
Check out my comprehensive article on how to buy a franchise.
2. I work with a select group of franchisors in a marketing capacity. I help them find qualified franchise ownership candidates.
I create powerful articles designed to create interest in my client's opportunities. Then, I spread them around the internet through the numerous websites i own and through my social media channels. Sample
A Franchise Directory
I own and run the Franchise Biz Directory. It's a great place for would-be franchise owners to find interesting opportunities to be their own bosses. But, it's more than a Directory.
Franchisors can get their opportunities listed on my Directory to get franchise leads, and at the same time, increase their online presence. Packages
I'm also the author of a hardcover book on franchise ownership.
I wrote several eBooks on franchise ownership, too. Look.
