Career coaches today are challenged with how to help their clients get re-employed, particularly clients over 50 or the Long-Term Unemployed.  Learn about how franchise ownership can be a viable alternative to traditional W-2 jobs.

Franchise ownership is not about just burgers and subs and you do not need to be a millionaire to invest in a franchise.  Suzanne Gray and Margie Pascetta will resource and facilitate this program featuring three people who have successfully transitioned to business ownership through franchising. 

Learn how to recognize a candidate for business ownership and how working with a coach can be beneficial when exploring this career option.

Suzanne Gray and Margie Pascetta own and operate independent offices of The Entrepreneur’s Source, the leading business coaching organization in North America.

As small business coaches they work with professionally minded individuals who are interested in learning more about investing in themselves through business ownership.  They help their clients clarify their unique personal goals and their vision as a business owner.  They educate clients about business ownership and help them to explore businesses that meet their specific criteria, using a step by step process.

Suzanne is a past Board Member of ACPI, New England. Closer to home, she has been a Town of Fitzwilliam (N.H.) Planning Board Member since 2004 and is the current chair of the Economic Development committee. In addition, she presents seminars for organizations, career centers and networking groups all over New England.

Prior to joining The Entrepreneur's Source, she worked in management and business development with National Grange Mutual Insurance Company for 15 years.  Margie had a 29 year career in global business sales with AT&T prior to joining The Entrepreneur’s Source. She is a graduate of Boston University’s School of Management where she earned an MBA with a concentration in Human Resources Management. 

Margie also served on the Board of Trustees of the National Alliance for Autism Research which later merged with Autism Speaks.  She was the founder and president of the New England chapter of Autism Speaks for 7 years.  During that time she led fund raising events which raised $11 million for autism research and created much needed awareness of this disorder. 

Margie and Suzanne co-founded a free weekly workshop, Career Transitions of Greater Boston, in Burlington, MA.  These sessions are facilitated by career coaches and focus on steps to re-employment.  Each session includes practical skills to enhance the job search, networking and accountability.
