The American Dream Isn’t Dead …

That’s right, the American dream isn’t dead!  In fact, it's very much alive! The unemployment rate for June 2013 was a half-percentage better than June 2012.  Just over the month, 175,000 positions were created. It's been slowly improving from the recent record low of 10.2 percent in October 2009. 

But, if you're exploring business ownership just because of these reports, beware! Its important to explore those businesses that have the ability to thrive in all economic conditions - both good and bad.

The question is how to do that! This is just one of the topics we cover in our upcoming seminar called “Franchising as a Career, an Investment, or Both!” This event is FREE, and will take place on June 25 in Grand Rapids, MI. For more information, please visit, email or call 616-891-1374.
