During the late spring of 2022 I was contemplating the next steps in my career as after 25 years in the corporate world, I wasn’t sure that I wanted to return following a hiatus that I decided to take while building a home. Rich LeBrun reached out to me and the timing turned out to be fortuitous as I had not yet accepted any offers with larger financial companies.
Over the next several months, Rich walked me through a process where I explained what I liked and disliked about business, daily tasks, the type of work that I wished to do and various forms of franchise opportunities. Once a clear set of likes and objectives had been created, I was presented with a large list of possible franchises as well as some information about each including the type of business, the franchise fee, the competitive market and the companies that were selling those franchises.
I worked with Rich as well as the representatives of each of the companies over a 4-5 month period where I investigated each and determined slowly which ones to continue investigating and which to walk away from. After 6 months, I invested in a franchise and Rich was helpful in providing perspective and information throughout the journey.
