Starting a Franchise can be a daunting endeavor, even for experienced business people.
Getting the right knowledge is crucial to becoming successful when you are starting a franchise.
At times, you may require someone who is experienced to guide you through the process, mentoring you into franchising success.
This is where Gregory Mohr comes in.
Gregory has an extensive understanding of the franchise industry, being a successful franchise operator himself.
Apart from running his own franchise operations, he takes time to teach people all about franchising.
He says that he knows franchising is not a business for everybody and does not sell it to people as such.
His role is to give people as much information on franchising as he can and then let them decide whether franchising is a business they want to go into or not.
For those who feel that franchising is something they want to venture into, he does provide information on which are the best franchises to target.
He also imparts knowledge on how you can turn your business into a franchise, giving you hands-on mentoring along the way.
As for the costs of his mentorship? It is all free since he gets paid a referral fee by the franchises that he promotes.
The mentorship program is designed for anyone who wants to know more about franchising.
It all starts by getting to know each other with Gregory and discussing your criteria and goals, where you have been, where you are at the current moment, and where you want to be in the future.
When you enter the franchise world, you are embracing the freedom to do anything that you want to do, including the small finer things, without affecting your income stream.
A Little About Gregory K Mohr
Gregory Mohr humorously refers to himself as a former corporate ladder climber.
For several years, he felt dissatisfied and bored with his job within the corporate sector.
Greg believes that a job should be a tool that helps people to earn a comfortable and happy living. Life has to be fulfilling, even as you go about performing your duties at your job.
He was not happy at his job!
This is the reason why he left his job and ventured into franchising. He also feels that there are many people, who are unhappy with their jobs, and that is why he helps entrepreneurs and corporate holdouts in creating financial freedom, wealth, and security in the franchising industry.
For Gregory, the turning moment came when he reads the book, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, by Robert Kiyosaki. He realized that what bored him was “working for others”.
It had been drilled in his head all his life, that he had to get a job so he could have a great life, but this ‘job” was driving him nuts.
This is when he decided to start franchising as a side hustle, and soon he felt much better about himself.
After about 10 years, he had already made a name for himself within the industry:
- He was featured on Yahoo Finance
- He had improved his income by more than 10 times, working for himself and using the hours that were favorable to him.
- Written the book, “Real Freedom, Why Franchises Are Worth Considering and How They Can Be Used for Building Wealth”, which is a guide to finding the right franchise fit, and which also became a best seller on Barnes & Noble and Amazon, earning a place in the Wall Street Journal list of best sellers.
- He had helped hundreds of people in getting the right franchise fit for themselves.
Gregory also runs a podcast on franchising called “Franchise Maven”.
Here is a video in which he talks about why he started franchising:
