A Midwest native, Jerry lives on a family farm in northeast Iowa but enjoys time away at his lake house in central Arkansas.

You have this burning desire seated in your heart, in your soul, to start a business and forge your own destiny. You’ve made a very wise decision to consider franchise opportunities because your chance for long term success has increased exponentially. But now what? How do you proceed? What is the first, second and twentieth step you need to take before handing someone your hard-earned investment, signing long term contracts, and leaping off the cliff into the business unknown?

Full disclosure: I am a fellow franchisee with Jerry Akers in the Great Clips system. My only regret is that Jerry wasn’t there 30 years ago when I was starting my franchising exploration.
