Overview of topic:
Are you contemplating a career move and don’t know what to do next? Do you want more than just a job? Would you like to be in business for yourself, but don’t want to create everything by yourself?

A franchise may be an option. Come and learn how to properly investigate buying a franchise by making an educated buying decision.

Key topics include: advantages and disadvantages of franchising vs opening a business, types of franchises available, financing options, hot industry profiles, Franchise Disclosure Document overview and much more.

Speaker’s bio:
Diane Pleuss is a franchise expert and educator. Through her FranChoice consulting business, she has helped hundreds of people determine if a franchised business is right for them. Many times she presents options they don’t know about and almost always helps them from making a serious, “rookie” mistake! Best of all her services are completely free.

With over 20 years in franchising and 14 years as a franchise consultant, she coaches and guides people through the investigation and due diligence process so they can make a sound business decision.

The FranChoice process is like a Disneyland Fast Pass – it gets candidates to the places they want to go, efficiently and easily!

Diane has an MBA, is the District 57 Director for Toastmasters overseeing 140 clubs from Fremont to the Oregon border, is past president of two advertising associations, and is finishing up her first book on franchising.

Diane finds her work to be enormously rewarding and I think you’ll be able to tell from her presentation, that she has a real passion for helping people.

Diane can be reached through her FranChoice consulting practice at[masked] or
