SOUTHBURY, CT--(Marketwire - Jul 25, 2012) - Many people may rule out business ownership as a means to make a living and secure their financial future due to a lack of funds and/or concern about affordable healthcare benefits. To remove these two key barriers to entry for aspiring entrepreneurs, The Entrepreneur's Source (TES), North America's leading career and business coaching company, has formed strategic alliances with funding and healthcare companies to help more individuals realize the American dream of business ownership.
Brian Miller, COO of TES Franchising LLC, says, "These strategic alliances with both financing and healthcare companies now open the doors for many people who want the self-sufficiency that business ownership offers."
Healthcare Alliance - TES has formed a strategic alliance with Guardian Health Exchange, which offers prospective business owners options for affordable healthcare in their respective states. This alliance gives aspiring business owners the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they will be able to secure healthcare within their price range.
Financing Alliance - Pioneering a solution to the credit crisis facing America's small business owners, TES has formed a strategic alliance with Guidant Financial Group, a premier financing firm. Together, they are making hundreds of millions of dollars available to help finance small businesses and help more Americans achieve their dream of business ownership. The co-branded funding program targets aspiring franchise owners and prospective and existing small business owners.
"We want to give the small business investor every opportunity to live a life filled with possibilities, options and dreams," said Miller. "These alliances will ensure that TES clients have the capital they need to get their businesses up and running to peak performance, and the healthcare coverage to take care of their families while growing their business."
TES business coaches offer guidance and training on franchising and business opportunities, taking clients through a "discovery process" to identify their own income, lifestyle, wealth and equity goals. Clients are then presented with business concepts to explore how these have the potential to meet their goals, needs and expectations. For those who are business owners or franchisees, TES business coaches work collaboratively to provide education and business strategies applicable to each stage of business development. They also help clients identify and address challenges and new opportunities, educates them on key business principles and holds them accountable for their short and long term business goals.
