A word from The Entrepreneur’s Source founder Terry Powell.

Terry Powell, Founder of The Entrepreneurs Source

I launched The Entrepreneur’s Source 40 years ago to fulfill a need. There was a market niche in which people who wanted to be self-sufficient didn’t have a simple and effective way to learn how to achieve it. The Entrepreneur’s Source is a resource that provides education, awareness and discovery about how to use a franchise business as a path to developing the income, lifestyle, wealth and equity required for self-sufficiency.

The response was better than I could ever have expected. People found the environment we created comforting. There were plenty of places they could go to have a franchise sold to them, but nowhere else but The Entrepreneur’s Source where they could learn about franchising and business ownership at no cost to them and at their own pace. Our process allows “seekers,” as we call them, to take their time exploring individual business models, empowering them to find the ideal opportunity to help them fulfill their goals and desires.

Word spread quickly throughout the franchise world and, in 1998, we began franchising our Career Ownership Coaching® system to reach a nationwide market of aspiring entrepreneurs. Over the last three and a half decades, our 140+ franchisee coaches have helped tens of thousands of individuals in North America go from employment to empowerment through business ownership. And, collectively, those clients have invested more than $1 billion in over 600 franchised businesses across 85 industries.

We are committed to the development and advancement of the entrepreneur and all those who aspire to that role – and that’s why The Entrepreneur’s Source franchise opportunity has earned its place on top franchise ranking lists for the last 15 years. The dedication we show to the seekers who come for career advice is the same we show our franchisees as they pursue their own dreams of self-sufficiency. And we’re looking forward to doing the same for you.

Our coaches change lives.

“I had worked for 15 years in the world of corporate finance when I was forced to make a sudden exit. I had always thought to myself, I have this great corporate job, I’m on easy street. But I was really in the wrong place at the wrong time. My Career Ownership Coach® helped me take a close look at franchising to achieve self-sufficiency. When friends are approaching those exit ramps in life, the first thing I tell them to do is to connect with a Career Ownership Coach® at The Entrepreneur’s source.”

ANDREW BROWN, New Business Owner

“The Entrepreneur’s Source process is extremely thorough and allowed me the opportunity to explore new industries and prioritize my career and personal goals.”

K. GRASSO, New Business Owner

“The most important part of the process for Linwood and I was that our Career Ownership Coach® took the time to find out what OUR goals, needs and expectations were, first. It was never about “making a sale” with him. It was all about our Why. He created a confidence bond, and helped us see all opportunities, without pushing us to one business over others. I liked that.”

KALAYA NELSON, New Business Owner

“I was traveling across the country working in corporate sales and one day I realized that I didn’t want to travel anymore! That’s when I began to think about owning my own business. I began working with my Career Ownership Coach® who helped me begin my Journey of Discovery. For me, it was a great process. I was learning about what excited and motivated me, but also what didn’t! That was just as important. I am so happy I went on the journey, and was also happy to have my coach along with me.”

LEE PUTNAM, New Business Owner

“This career change is what I was meant to do with my life. I’m a happier and healthier person and look forward to working every day!”

MARIANNA DALEY, New Business Owner

“Being an entrepreneur was always an idea in my head, but to be honest, I thought when I got to the point in my life that I had a family, that that ship had sailed. My wife and I met with our Career Ownership Coach® and found The Entrepreneur’s Source® to be a valuable tool throughout our discovery process. Now, as a business owner I have not only raised nearly $1 million dollars for schools in my community, but I work hard, and I get the flexibility to do what I want to do when I want to do it.”

MICHAEL SCROOPE, New Business Owner

“After working as an executive for 50-plus years in the Detroit area, I found myself at a crossroads. At the age of 64, many people are looking to wind down; but I was starting a whole new adventure. That’s when I found The Entrepreneur’s Source®. I feel my coach has developed his communication skills which allow him to listen with true empathy and I completely trusted The Entrepreneur’s Source process. Now I feel I have personal value in my work. I am loving being a business owner and can see the impact it can have on others.”
