The Entrepreneur’s Source Franchise Friday — 5 Reasons Aspiring Entrepreneurs are Leaving Corporate America
On last week’s Franchise Friday show, host Paul Segreto was joined by self-employment and The Entrepreneur’s Source Coach Susan Mell. Susan’s background includes 30 years of experience as a business owner—her first business in the wireless industry included four retail locations, 42 employees and $3 million dollars in annual sales.
Across the past 12 years, Susan has become a successful multi-unit franchisee, with eight franchise locations and five independent contractors throughout the country. She is passionate about helping people achieve their dreams of self-employment through helping them to discover franchise opportunities that they would not discover on their own.
Susan shared her insight on today’s franchise candidates, and why people are deciding to forgo corporate America in favor of business ownership.
The Corporate America to Entrepreneurship Movement
We’re seeing an ever growing segment of the population, including Baby Boomers that are realizing their retirement funds are not going to take them through the Golden Age like they planned.
People in corporate America are tired of staying in positions where they are working more hours with fewer resources and less pay. They have experienced the loss of a job, or are tired of the extra workload without the extra pay or recognition.

How to Take the First Step
As a franchise coach, I help my clients achieve the ability to dream again and to make that shift out of corporate America. I feel there are more possibilities out there for taking control of your destiny through business ownership, and people are taking advantage of the opportunities.
However, we often have to be pushed to make a change. Sometimes you have to have difficult things happen for you to get outside your comfort zone. It’s easier said than done.
