The Entrepreneur’s Source Terry Powell Shares Top 2 Secrets to Discovery Process

The Entrepreneur’s Source Terry Powell: Secrets to Discovery Process

The Entrepreneur’s Source takes an inside-out approach to the Discovery Process.  Our Business Coaches help people discover what they want a business franchise to do for them, and what they want their life to look like in the next 10 to 15 years.

It goes with the principle of starting with the end in mind. In Steven Covey’s book, The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People, the second habit is starting with the end in mind.

There are two pieces to starting with the end in mind:

  1. Have a mental creation: Envision what your goals look like.
  2. Have the physical creation: Actually execute on them.

“In order to truly be successful, people must have both pieces in order to truly start with the end in mind,” said The Entrepreneur’s Source founder Terry Powell. “The beauty of our self-discovery tools, like You 2.0 and our ILWE (Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity) tool, is that they help people figure out where they want to go and what they want their life to look like.”

By identifying an individual’s unique abilities and talents, Business Coaches are able to help them discover the possibilities for their futures. E-Source Coaches facilitate the Discovery Process by starting with the end in mind and envisioning what the possibilities are, what people want their lives to look like, and what they want their futures to look like.

“The Entrepreneur’s Source’s self-discovery tools help people paint that picture of where they want to go. This process is a powerful tool that starts individuals on their way to meeting their ILWE goals.”

The sector generated about $2 billion in revenue in 2013 and employed 16,138 people.

The report goes on to claim that the projection for the frozen yogurt industry remains strong for the next five years, due to growing demands from health-conscious consumers. Menchie’s, North America’s largest self-serve frozen yogurt franchise, is helping to foster this growth.

Overcoming Battered Investor Syndrome: The Entrepreneur’s Source Highlights Benefit of Investing in Franchising

Overcoming Battered Investor Syndrome: The Entrepreneur’s Source Highlights Benefit of Investing in Franchising

Investors have taken many roller coaster rides with their investments, especially over past decade. The majority of people place the power of their wealth-building and investments to others outside their control: Wall Street. In turn, the financial community they trusted to do the right thing and continue to build their portfolios and yield a reasonable return have often left investors disappointed.

Portfolios are dependent on the economy, the stock market, unemployment, and many other factors outside of investors’ control. Many variables impact the results of reactive investments. People make reactive investments into their financial futures not only to be able to pay their bills when they retire, but also to live the type of lifestyle that they would like to live. Investors are beaten up and battered.

Even those who experience a handsome return are very aware of the risk and are beginning to shift beyond the idea that others should control their wealth exclusively.

Many people are experiencing Battered Investor Syndrome.

How to Overcome Battered Investor Syndrome

In this New Career Economy, it makes sense for investors to evaluate their portfolios and reallocate a portion of investments to a proactive side, such as a business franchise opportunity. This type of approach also makes good diversification sense.

Investors are taking control of their financial futures by investing in proven business opportunities.  The shift towardmore proactive investments in the form of franchise opportunities are helping investors experience a more reliable return on investment.

Benefits of Investing in a Franchise Business Model:

  • Existing brand awareness
  • Marketing support provided by the franchisor
  • Market knowledge of products or services
  • Established business systems with ongoing support
  • Designated geographic operating territories that manage competition
  • Combined buying power with suppliers
  • Reduced failure rates compared to other small business start-ups
