Make It Your Business to Help Others

If you have a passion for helping people, and have also been bit by the entrepreneurial bug … there is a perfect franchised business concept waiting for you.

  • Rehabilitation Therapy – Help the healing and restoration of normal life activities with those that may have suffered illness or injury.  Your team will work directly with patients, educating them on what they can do to restore function and return to routine daily activities. 
  • Senior Care – As they age, sometimes those we love need a little extra help.  That is where your business can come in.  Providing special care to our seniors is truly a noble act.
  • Vitamins / Nutritional Products – Being healthy is being cool. Through providing vitamins, supplements and other important products – you are helping educate and improve the lifestyles of your customers searching to reach peak human performance.
  • Massage – Americans suffer from back pain, other muscle pain and routine stress, which are the primary reasons people seek their first massage. Bring the benefits of high-quality, superior massage services to your community
  • Health Care Supplies – Wheelchairs, C-PAP machines, oxygen tanks and more.  Help provide needed supplies to those needing specific supplies that can’t be commonly obtained through pharmacies and supermarkets.
  • Weight Loss – Help people lose weight via long-term behavioral modification and coaching. You and your staff can help your clients live a lifetime of healthy habits and wellness.  

There are many different concepts in the world of Health and Wellness that you could be a part of.  Remember, franchises are more than just fries.  In the case of health/wellness, it’s the direct OPPOSITE of French fries.

Learn more about various different franchises at my upcoming workshop, “Is Buying a Franchise Right For Me?”  The workshop takes place on August 13th in Caledonia, MI.  For more information and to RSVP, please visit  You can also contact me at or 616-891-1374.

B2B? B2C? What about HB2B?

There are many different types of business structures out there. All of them fall into two broad categories as to the targeted market, those being Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumer (B2C).

Maybe you are looking for something different.  You want to be your own boss, but you need a bit of flexibility.  What about HB2B?

What’s that?  Home-based-to-business.

You don’t even have to start something from scratch.  There are plenty of franchise business concepts to meet your entrepreneurial needs.  Let’s take a look at the potential:

  • Consulting:  Your home is your base, and you go out to meet with your different business clients.  Create value for your clients, making money as they make money.  A total win-win.
  • Sales:  Your clients might think you work out of a big office building.  Combine your sales and marketing skills, charming personality, and a franchised business concept – and you have a winning combination.
  • Services:  IT, digital marketing, facility maintenance and repair and many other options can easily hit the road.  Bring your talents to the people, and reap the rewards.

One of the great things about working as a HB2B franchised business concept, you have a franchisor that will provide you with the training and the tools.  You even have a network of other franchisees as a sounding board.

Want to know about more about franchising?  You can learn more by watching one of our upcoming free webinars listed to the right.  On July 15th, learn more about a B2B opportunity.  On July 16, we'll look at finding the right business for baby boomers.  On July 22nd, we'll examine if business ownership is right for you.  Either click on the links to the right, or visit for more information.
