Join us on this episode as I interview Kim Daly, a franchise consultant with a fascinating journey. Kim shares how she stumbled into franchising, initially seeking a telemarketing job on her way to medical school, which eventually led her to a long and successful career in franchising.
Kim discusses the qualities that make someone a successful franchisee, emphasizing the importance of a desire for freedom and the willingness to put in the effort. She introduces the concept of semi-absentee ownership, allowing busy professionals to diversify their income streams without leaving their full-time jobs.
Kim also highlights the value of franchising beyond the product or service, focusing on the franchise's culture and leadership. She shares her future plans, including coaching programs to help franchisees achieve success and mindset transformation. Tune in for a short and insightful exploration of the world of franchising and the secrets to becoming a successful franchisee while maintaining a thriving career.
