Spring Forward to Start a Business Weekend®…and Your Career 2.0®! Here at The Entrepreneur’s Source, we always look forward to “springing ahead” to Daylight Savings Time. It’s a harbinger of spring, a time of renewal.
Start a Business Weekend® offers thousands of people their own opportunity for personal renewal: leaving behind their Battered Career Syndrome to become a franchise business owner, and to have more control over their professional destiny. For three days, individuals will be able to directly connect online with more than 175 franchise companies, as well as experienced, successful coaches from TES, to help guide them through the process at no cost.
6 years ago, we wanted to do something which would marry virtual technology with those who have an entrepreneurial spirit. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to have the one on one experience they couldn’t get at a huge job fair, or Franchise Expo, right from the desk/computer. TES Start a Business Weekend® has succeeded in accomplishing that beyond our wildest dreams, and we have seen many client success stories spring from our virtual experience!
In 2017, we had another record breaking year with more than 7,500 attendees navigating their way through the online expo, just using their fingers on their laptop, desktop, even their I-phone.
Attendees had the opportunity to explore franchise businesses by visiting virtual exhibit halls where exhibitors from home healthcare, to food services, to automotive, had booths set up to share information with them.
Not only that, but participants could hear many industry thought leaders talk about business trends, markets, funding, and small business opportunities inside a virtual auditorium. If somebody missed a particular speaker, no problem! We had these keynotes on-demand, as well as literature ready to be downloaded at the attendees’ convenience.
This year’s Start a Business Weekend® promises to be even better, and we are anticipating an even bigger record-breaking year, helping more people moving from employment to empowerment.
Attendees will have over 175 franchise opportunities from more than 95 industries for participants to discover, ranging from health and beauty, children’s education, senior care, automotive, and B2B, to name just a few.
This year’s keynote speakers, will offer thought provoking, timely topics including “Other Options for Your Money than the Market”; “Why Small Business Ownership Offers Real Financial Freedom”; “How to Fund Your Franchise”; and “Why the Time is Right to Go from Employment to Empowerment”.
To ensure this is a true “personal experience” for the attendees, each will have their own coach assigned to them by The Entrepreneur’s Source. This is a “value add”, providing resources and education for the Start a Business Weekend® attendees looking for more guidance. These dedicated, yet unbiased, coaches work to provide education, awareness and discovery for the prospective franchisees’ through the TES Discovery Process, helping them determine if business ownership is even a fit for them. The coaches will also help the participants really capture a vision of what their Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, and Equity goals are now, and what they could be, by taking an alternative career path.
The Start a Business Weekend® event has become the gold standard for helping the new breed of business owners gain key information, insights, and initiative to be confident in owning their own business.
