Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) March 27, 2013 - Entrepreneurs can explore lucrative opportunities with a free franchise seminiar.
Since the recession of 2008, the lack of job security has spurred many would-be entrepreneurs to explore being their own boss. Creating a successful business from scratch has many exploring the franchise business model. The reason being that franchise ownership eliminates the challenge of a start-up business by providing a proven system of doing business. Nonetheless, finding a company with a culture that fits, is a strong component of success.
To assist with the decision-making process and to help educate those seeking to own a franchise, Liberty Tax is holding an open house Thursday, April 4 from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at the Homewood Suites in Fort Myers (near RSW). The attire is casual and seating is limited. To reserve a seat, contact Chuck Lovelace at 757-286-9355.
One pressing topic of discussion will center on how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) will significantly impact many industries, especially the tax preparation industry. This is a concerning matter for many entrepreneurs and business owners alike. Experts estimate that an additional 30 million Americans will be required to file a tax return in order to claim the health care benefits under the PPACA.
There will be a question and answer session following an introduction to Liberty Tax Service. This seminar is highly recommended for anyone considering franchise ownership. Free educational literature as well as a complimentary New York Times bestseller book, entitled Vision: Your Pathway to Victory by Gordon D’Angelo will be distributed.
