I spent four years looking for different franchises, looking to acquire different businesses and that was after a 30 year corporate career in the oil and gas industry. I was very particular about the kind of franchise that I selected and Transworld leadership was something that impressed me, their business model impressed me, and all the stars aligned with Transworld. It worked; it was a good fit for me.
Being a Transworld franchisee has worked out great for me! It’s a wonderful business model. Last year was particularly successful for us; we closed fifteen transactions. I like it because our world is different every day. Every business we deal with is different, every transaction is different, it’s always a challenge – and I like that.
Transworld is a major brand with proven processes, and is successful. It is also part of United Franchise Group, which has been in the franchise world for 30 years. This is not a startup. It is a very major, proven franchise.
I love owning a Transworld Business Advisors for a couple of reasons. One, I’m passionate about business and I’m passionate about entrepreneurship – so being able to see different types of businesses and helping owners sell those businesses is great. And, two, Transworld is more of a lifestyle business. We have a physical office, but we don’t have to be there. We’re from Colorado; we love to ski and hike. We’ve even done meetings in a gondola and on camping trips. My husband goes hunting with our attorneys every year. So that is all very attractive as well.
