August 27, 2009 // Franchising.com // Phoenix, Arizona – With many believing that the small-and-medium-size businesses will lead the national economic recovery, seasoned corporate executive Ray Keough has taken on a new mission - bolstering economic development opportunities in the state of Arizona with the launch of his new business practice. As a business coach extensively trained under The Entrepreneur's Source system, Keough will focus on growing new businesses in the state as well as helping existing businesses increase performance.
"Entrepreneurship is booming today and I'm very excited about helping people understand the many options available to them as aspiring business owners," said Keough. "I'm a true believer in the New Career Economy and helping people create their own destiny," he added.
As a regional developer of The Entrepreneur's Source, Keough's state-wide 'business coaching' practice will be awarding franchises to selected individuals who have a passion for helping aspiring and established entrepreneurs, who see business coaching as a career and who are willing to invest in long-term self sufficiency. "With economic indicators projecting a continuing down turn in the labor force, a trend toward leaner companies and an increase in service sector jobs, the market for business coaching is ripe," says Keough "Owning a business coaching franchise gives aspiring business owners a built-in formula for success while parlaying their business skills into financial gain," he added.
Ray Keough's solid corporate background in business management, finance and technology along with the proven business coaching system of The Entrepreneur's Source offer prospects a solid financial opportunity for investment.
"Many regions in Arizona offer outstanding opportunities for economic development for both new business expansion and increasing the performance of existing businesses," said Keough. "A business coach working on my team will have the opportunity to work in both markets," he added.
