Introducing Mike Accurso, Franchise Coach
I’m Mike Accurso, a franchise business coach. What does that mean exactly? Well, I help people who are thinking about self employment and want to consider if franchising is a viable option for them. I am all about helping people learn and put them in a position to make an informed career decision.
Questions about franchising I will answer in future articles:
- What are the strengths and weaknesses of franchising,
- the pros and cons,
- how much can I make,
- how long will it take,
- how much will it really cost,
- can I be successful?
How I got started in franchising:
I spent the first part of my career as a senior IT professional in several large companies like National Car Rental, EDS and IBM. Then in 2008 found myself in transition and was wondering what to do next. I was pretty sure I didn’t want to go back to the corporate world and often thought about going into my own business, but I never had that “1 thing” I knew I wanted my business to be. So I was stuck. Until…………….
One day I met a person who was a franchise business coach.
I never considered franchising a viable option for me.
It was ( I thought): too expensive, all hamburgers and oil changes, I didn’t know anything about franchising and on top of that, I didn’t have access to any real capital to invest. After spending some time with this coach all those false impressions I had were replaced with actual facts about those issues and I soon found myself actively considering franchising.
Now here I am over 10 years later, not only a franchise owner but also a franchise business coach.
So my goal now is to help you navigate on this journey and to help educate you about franchising. Any decisions that are made will be by you and you alone. I’m here to facilitate learning and to provide a vehicle for you to get the information that you need.
