I have always wanted to know the details about franchising. This book gave me the answer to my questions. just like any other step you want to take in life, you need to know ‘why’ and also weigh your strength. Enough information is shared in the book. – Ola
Benedik is a good coach: experienced, caring, & able to communicate with readers at varying levels.
To be honest, I was interested in this book not because I was interested in buying a franchise, but because I wanted to be a better small business entrepreneur after my retirement from teaching. But I had minimal business background and, at first, was concerned that this book would be way over my head. I was pleasantly surprised. Benedik’s voice is one of a coach wanting her protogee to succeed. Her book is well written and well laid out. The information presented builds upon the foundation set at the beginning. My favorite part is the thought provoking collection of quotes from famous people that she generously sprinkles throughout her book. ~ Janet

Are You a Corporate Refugee?
If you are dissatisfied with your job, you are not alone. According to a Gallop poll released in 2017, eighty-five percent of workers worldwide admit to hating their jobs. (Tracy 2001-2018)
Have you been downsized, laid off, let go, and made obsolete? Are you underemployed, without a clear path to move up in your company? Perhaps you are just tired of the same grind day in and day out. Do you feel yourself grinding to a halt?
Corporate refugees are those who were forced out of a “real job” or got fed up and quit. Some individuals wish someone would fire them because they don’t have the courage to quit. Talk to a corporate refugee long enough, though, and you’ll find they think of themselves more like escapees — and they love their new-found freedom.
In my work with individuals looking to buy a franchise, I have talked to many people in the above circumstances. Their frustration is apparent from our first conversation.
