New Owner of Minuteman Press Urges Others to Explore Self-Employment

Finds Solace in Franchising after 16 Years in the Technology Industry

Redmond, Wash. (PRWEB) April 16, 2014 - JD Klein always knew he wanted to transition from a career in corporate sales and marketing to being a small business owner. He needed to find the right kind of business and a way to fund it. As a new Franchisee of Minuteman Press, made possible by the financial services of Guidant Financial, he’s rapidly growing his own company while preserving the flexibility to enjoy life outside of work with his family.

"I always wanted to be an entrepreneur," said Klein. "The timing was right to make a move given the economy and our life situation."

In his search for the perfect franchise, he visited a business broker website, which is where he found Guidant Financial. After learning about their services, he decided to use his retirement funds to help finance his new franchise.

"There are a ton of things that need [to be] handled to start a company and it’s a lot of hard work, but I couldn’t imagine doing it without Guidant. They were a trusted advisor and held our hand through the formation process."

He purchased an existing Minuteman Press location last fall and has been growing the business very rapidly since. His printing and marketing franchise helps customers with everything from business cards to direct mail, and offers free pickup and delivery. Klein relishes the local aspect of his new franchise.

He noted, "People want to buy from people they know, like and trust—and being local gives them a community partner they feel good doing business with because their dollars stay in our community."
