The Entrepreneur’s Source: You Want to Take Control of Your Career – Start Now!
From the time we are born we are told what to do. When you’re a kid, your parents tell you what to do. When you’re a student, your teachers tell you what to do. When you enter the workforce, your supervisor tells you what to do.
Wouldn’t it be great to NOT be told what to do? Wouldn’t it be great to be able to figure some things out for yourself and have some time to discover some truths on your own?!?! A journey of self-discovery may be the most important journey you will ever take. Without question, prioritizing that journey of self-discovery is what sets The Entrepreneur’s Source® (TES) apart from all of the rest.
Our visionary and founder, Terry Powell, had his own journey of self-discovery and moment of clarity back in 1984. At the age of 36, Terry found himself bankrupt and divorced, with three children to support. He knew entrepreneurship was his path and he pursued that dream despite the naysayers. Along the way, he realized he had the desire and the ability to help others like him.
That moment of clarity lead to the creation of The Entrepreneur’s Source®. We are now the leading Career Transition Coaching organization in North America. The keys to that success are what make us different – we are truly a coaching organization that focuses on education, awareness, and discovery.
Our coaches will not tell you what to do! What do you want out of life? What do you need in order to be happy? What gives you the most satisfaction? These are all personal questions that should involve a lot of thought and consideration on your part. It’s not always easy. Guiding you and helping you through the process is your TES coach.
Make no mistake though, with The Entrepreneur’s Source®, YOU are in charge of how fast or how slow you want to go. You are in charge of discovering what motivates you. We just help you along the journey. When you reach your moment of clarity, that’s when we present you with options.
This is where the differences between The Entrepreneur’s Source® and all the “other guys” are truly revealed. Anybody can give you a list of franchise businesses and tell you a little bit about them. That’s nothing special and it certainly doesn’t speak to your individual goals, needs, and expectations.
It’s what helped TES client and franchise owner Branden Bowden arrive at his point of clarity even though he wasn’t sure about the journey his coach was guiding him through at first.
“She was building a profile of what my interests were, what my background was, things I like, what things I didn’t like. With that, she was able to really cut through the time-wasting and get me in front of real opportunities,” Bowden told us. “I do know that if she had just put another long list of possible franchises in front of me, I probably would not have moved forward with business ownership.”
Another TES client, Mike Williams will be starting his franchise in the spring of 2019. He says working with his TES coach made all of the difference.
“She learned all she could about me and my interests and my background. She then started a search for suitable business ventures that fit for my personality and interests,” William’s explained. The help didn’t stop there. After narrowing down the choices, his e-source coach took the time to help him discover which business was right for him.
“She coached me through the discovery process, asked challenging questions, and truly helped me discover the best opportunity.”
Williams never felt rushed. “She was also extremely patient with me, allowing the process to go at the pace I was most comfortable with.”
The Entrepreneur’s Source has a company-wide philosophy about “dreamers”. Dreamers are exactly that; people who dream of going into business for themselves but are unsure and hesitant. That’s where the real value of our coaching methodology lies, empowering dreams and supporting that through education, awareness, and discovery.
TES client Chanel Jones went into business with her brother and sister. She says their path to entrepreneurship wasn’t always easy. “The process was emotional at times, exciting and scary. [Our TES coach] was there every step of the way. Any hurdle we faced, she worked collectively with us to find a way over the hurdle and was very present through the entire process start to finish. She was encouraging and her calming disposition was exactly what we needed to venture down this path.”
Look at it this way: If you’re considering going into business for yourself, it’s because you want to be your own boss. Shouldn’t that start with the actual process of choosing the business that’s best for you? At The Entrepreneur’s Source®, it’s the only way we do things.
