The 2nd Annual GrowSmartBiz Conference is being held at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington DC, November 5th, and I'm honored to have been asked to speak about the realities of franchise ownership this year.
My friend, Rieva Lesonsky, will be leading the Entrepreneur Boot Camp track, which I'm a part of, and will include these topics;
"Joel Libava is the absolute best. Do NOT engage in any franchise until you have consulted with Joel. He will save you tons of money and grief. I am absolutely convinced that if I had found Joel before I signed on all the dotted lines and spent some money with him, I would have avoided my looming crash and burn." - Andy Mark

- Smart Hiring Practices/Is Your Business Evolving or are You a Dying Breed? Plus, 5 Minutes that Can Change your Business Forever

I'm excited to be a part of this event, because not only will I be representing my own company, Franchise Selection Specialists Incorporated, but I'll also be representing Small Business Trends, where I've been the "Franchise Expert in Residence" for the past few years.
