The Entrepreneur’s Source Coach Reviews Meeting Lifestyle Goals through Discipline

When Entrepreneur’s Source Coach Gus Iurillo began his business, he had two young girls. Now, his daughters are teenagers, and he credits his career with The Entrepreneur’s Source as affording him the lifestyle that allowed him to be an integral part of his daughters’ lives.

“It’s interesting because when I first got involved with E-Source, lifestyle wasn’t my top concern within my ILWE Goals, but is has been increasingly important to me because it has allowed me to be an integral part of my daughters’ lives growing up.”

“I certainly have to be disciplined, but once I mastered the business, I was able to meet the lifestyle I wanted, including weekends off and more time to spend with my daughters.”

Entrepreneur’s Source Coach Discusses the Greatest Success of His 11 Year Career

Jeff Levy has been an Entrepreneur’s Source Coach for 11 years, but when he’s asked what his “greatest success” has been, he doesn’t have just one moment come to mind.

“Every time a client signs a franchise agreement and goes onto their future, each one of those successes is equally exciting to me. Just the opportunity to see a new family or person activate their dream. I always take a client out to dinner after they sign a franchise agreement, and it’s always a special moment I cherish. I don’t think there’s anything better than that.”

The Entrepreneur’s Source Names Minneapolis Entrepreneur Client of the Year

In early 2010, following a lengthy career in the automotive fleet industry, Bill Bentz took a risk on, what was then, an unheard of franchise concept and never looked back. Three years later, his dedication to Doc Popcorn® and admirable work ethic has earned him the prestigious 2013 Client of the Year award by The Entrepreneur’s Source® (E-Source), North America’s leading career and franchise business coaching company.

In search of something he could call his own and in need of some guidance, Bentz found himself at the door of Mike Accurso, an E-Source coach, who introduced him to a novel snack concept in the beginning stages of franchising. Bentz and his wife, Julie, took a risk on the unknown concept and were among the first franchisees to invest in Doc Popcorn.

“Bill had the vision to see the tremendous opportunity in Doc Popcorn,” said Terry Powell, founder of E-Source. “It’s not every day we see someone come out of a 30 year long corporate career who is willing to take a leap of faith on a new concept. Right out of the gate, he had the drive and determination to make himself an instant success in the franchise industry.”

After using a portion of his 401K to fund his entrepreneurial dream, Bentz set his sights on the Mall of America, took matters into his own hands, negotiated a lease and made it happen. He opened a Doc Popcorn location in July 2010 and has been successful since day one. To further his business, Bentz and his family later acquired a mobile cart to use at community festivals and sports tournaments. He is currently seeking to open a second location in the Mall of America as they expand.

“The first time I met with Mike [Accurso], I didn’t think I would walk out with a popcorn stand,” Bentz said. “Throughout my career, I never once dreamed I’d be in the place I’m in now. I thank E-Source for helping guide me here and for recognizing me as client of the year.”

Bentz, known by his E-Source coach as a true business and family man, was nominated for the E-Source Client of the Year award because he is determined, accomplished and passionate. He took a downward situation and career change as an opportunity to become his own boss – he set goals for himself, put in his due diligence and became an instant success.
