This is a guest blog post by Brian Miller, COO of The Entrepreneur’s Source.
Today’s career economy is plagued with uncertainty, especially as more and more companies move towards a more fluid, part-time workforce. In order to take control, many are pursuing entrepreneurship through franchising as a viable means to achieve their desired income, lifestyle, wealth, and equity goals for themselves and their families.
In fact, studies show that more than 75 percent of the U.S. population look to be self-sufficient rather than work for somebody else. This is the year to make the move to entrepreneurship and create the next, improved version of your life, or what we’re calling “You 2.0”. Our virtual Start a Business Weekend expo is all about getting important questions answered, while offering valuable resources to prospective franchisees — no matter their current situation.
As the nation’s leading franchise coaching network, The Entrepreneur’s Source hosts virtual Start a Business Weekend expos on a regular basis throughout the year. The next virtual expo will be held on January 24 through 26, 2013 and offers current and aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to explore business opportunities and gain advice from experts — all from the comfort of their home or office.
The Start a Business Weekend expo allows attendees to “walk” into a digital Exhibit Hall and visit the booths of more than 60 of the nation’s hottest franchise concepts where they can chat live with representatives from a variety of different franchise brands, learn how to finance their new business, attend keynote presentations, and download informational resources with relevant information about franchising and specific opportunities throughout the nation.
Business coaches from The Entrepreneur’s Source will also be available to help would-be entrepreneurs discover business opportunities that meet their personal goals, needs, and expectations.
