    Set-Up a Franchise with Someone Else's $$$


    Are you tired of working for someone else and are ready to make a career change? Have you always wanted to start your own franchise business but didn’t know where to start, what to look for and how to fund it? Then this event is for YOU!

    Come join us on February 4 as we talk about the granular details of how to look for your “perfect fit” franchise, how to search from more than 3,000 franchises in the marketplace, and once you have found it, to learn more about the funding options available to you!

    Faizun Kamal, Franchise Consultant, The Franchise Consulting Company and Brian Seliber, Assistant Vice President, City National Bank team up to bring you all the information you need to know to chart a career change in 2019, armed with information on the best franchises out there as well as the various funding options to make your dream a reality.

    Come and learn about:

    • Franchising as an alternate career option – to lower risk, make money and own what you do
    • Financial steps to consider before making a career move – learn about strategies to leverage your current paycheck and W2 to fortify your household’s future financing power.

Through the world of franchising, she discovered a way to live a life of purpose, passion and profit!

    Her experiences as a former Fortune 15 Executive with 18+ years of experience in corporate, multinational, nonprofit & entrepreneurial settings on three continents have made her an inspirational speaker to audiences worldwide.
