I recently was interviewed by WOTV and WZZM about "Encore Careers," those careers that you start in the second-half of life. Take a click on the video above to learn more about Encore Careers, including comments from Dan Hendon. Dan worked in the automotive industry, saw one of my posts on LinkedIn, came to one of my seminars, and has started Zounds West Michigan who helps to provides hearing aids (with noise cancellation and feedback control) at one-third to one-half the cost of the competition.
Does Dan's story sound like something you could do? I invite you to attend "Michigan Franchise Forum: Meet the Franchisors Expanding in West Michigan." The event is 100% free, and will be held from 3:00pm to 5:30pm at Northwood University in Grand Rapids. Seating is limited, so you must register at frannet.com/bbetser.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with franchise development executives from categories such as light manufacturing, hair-care, business-to-business marketing services, residential and commercial services, retail, small office, and home-based. Tips on franchise due diligence will also be presented and a franchise financing expert will discuss funding options. Open networking with the presenters will be available after presentations on the opportunities conclude (approximately 5pm).
