Are you subscribed to this podcast for women looking into buying a business, franchise or other? Erin Carpenter, the host, is exposing the true stories in the field and what to look out for.  

- Denise Kelly, Franchise Consultant & Success Activator

Great perspectives from women in all aspects of franchising. A must-listen for any woman (or even man!) thinking about owning or investing in a franchise concept.

Very inspirational! No doubt this will help so many people looking to take flight in a new opportunity.

There really is not much out there for women in franchising, so I am anxious to get through the rest of your shows! I would love to hear more about profitability in franchising. I know that is dependent on a lot of factors, but I believe I can be more successful owning my business vs. working in corporate America.
