Keith Griffith Opens Mr. Appliance Franchise

22-Year Military Veteran Craved the Freedom Entrepreneurship Offered

Lee's Summit, Mo. (PRWEB) September 10, 2014 - When Keith Griffith retired from his 22-year military career and attempted to transition into a civilian job, he knew within a short period of time that he wasn't cut out for the corporate world.

"I no longer wanted the restrictions of a regular job," Griffith said of his short-term position as a biomedical engineer. "I wanted to earn a lucrative living while I set my own time and agenda."

Griffith set his sights on opening his own business, choosing to launch a Mr. Appliance franchise. Mr. Appliance is a service-oriented business providing expert maintenance and repair of household appliances, in addition to dryer vent cleaning.

Now, Griffith is soaking up his decision-making status, saying the best part of business ownership is the ability to "set the climate" of his workplace. "I truly get to be a trend setter for what this business will be like and feel like," he said.

Griffith's franchise consultant referred him to Guidant Financial to help him finance his franchise. Using their signature Rollover for Business Start-ups program, Guidant helped Griffith use funds from his 401(k) to invest in his franchise without triggering a taxable distribution.

"Business financial matters were as good as a foreign language to me," Griffith stated. "But the Guidant folks have been real pros. They've guided me through that unknown path, and I continue to learn more every day."

In his spare time, Griffith enjoys long distance running, hiking, traveling to new places and helping those in need.

Mr. Appliance of Liberty will open for business on Sept. 11. To learn more about the services Mr. Appliance offers or to schedule an appointment, call 816-698-5656 or by visiting http://www.mrappliance.com/liberty
