How to Own a Business When You’re Not an Entrepreneur

Business ownership can be a solution for professionals in transition that want to break the cycle of prolonged periods of unemployment between assignments. Many dream about the benefits of owning their own business such as flexibility, control, financial reward and fulfillment but get stuck not having a “big” idea or knowing where to start. Franchise ownership is a viable option worthy of investigation.

Come learn why many others choose business ownership as their next career move.

What you’ll learn:
• What are the real costs?
• What are my financing options?
• Who is a good candidate for franchise ownership?
• Can I keep my job and open a business? How?
• How do I make a safe and wise decision?
• How to I minimize the risk?

About the Atlanta, GA Chapter

Our mission is to help members in the life-cycle of getting and keeping jobs.

Our objective is to support each other, share leads and discuss general intelligence about the market. If you are available we'd love to have you attend -- dress is "job interview" attire, or "dressy" business casual.

We generally meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month, so try to keep the date available.
