“An Introduction to Franchise and Business Ownership” – March 18th FINE Meeting

4 03 2010

Have you ever thought about owning a franchise? Thinking about going out on your own and wondering which type of business ownership would work best for you?

If you’re not sure of the costs involved, if the timing is right, if you’re cut out for it, what business makes sense and if it is safe, then come to the FINE Business Networking meeting on March 18th, 9AM, at the Westport Country Playhouse. Luc Deslauriers, owner of FranNet CT (www.frannet.com), will share his years of franchise business ownership experience in this informative seminar.

Topics will include:
• How to identify franchise business choices that best fit your skill set, needs, and goals
• Why consider business ownership now
• Growth trends and choices in franchise ownership that offer stability and success in weak and strong economies
• Safely and affordably transitioning from employment into business ownership
• Costly mistakes to avoid
• Advantages of buying a franchise vs. other businesses
• What franchises cost and how to finance the purchase

The doors open at 9AM with the opportunity to network, followed by a welcome at 9:15 and each attendee giving their “30 second elevator pitch” as an introduction. This is followed by the presentation and then additional time to network. The meeting concludes by 11AM.

There will be coffee at the meeting! Thanks to Elizabeth Brown, CPA, Tracy Boyce, FSPO and Bette Lynn Paez, MBA, CFP™ who are conducting  a “Keys to Financial Well-Being” seminar on March 20th. For more info. 

Note we will be meeting in different place at the Playhouse, the Lucille Lortel White Barn which is a building next to the Playhouse to the left of the main entrance where we usually enter.
