165. Expert Interview: Franchising Makes Business Ownership a Reality
Kevin Williams has held high-level corporate positions such as division president and senior vice president for major companies. His experience extends around the globe dealing with the world’s largest retailers. As owner of Executive Advantage, Inc., he puts his vast experience to work in helping others achieve their goals of becoming entrepreneurs.
Franchising Opportunities for the Common Man and Woman
As many as 72% of Americans want to be entrepreneurs. Clearly, most people never achieve that dream, largely because most of them know nothing about running a business. Franchising can help by providing training, expertise and a road map. All they need is the commitment to make it happen.
Why Is This Important?
The workplace is changing dramatically, explains Kevin Williams. “Most jobs last under three years. Just looking for another job may not be the best answer.” Executive Advantage, Inc. works with franchisors and prospective franchisees to help secure creative financing for start-ups, as well as match prospects to the best franchisor.
What Are the Key Lessons Learned Here?
Franchising is much more diverse than fast food restaurants, Kevin explains. A franchise might do anything from repair appliances, build decks, clean hotels, or run a franchise hotel or a head-hunting firm. “We really cover the gamut. We have a large portfolio of various opportunities. Exploring these options is a non-threatening process.”
