New Business Owner says Layoff was a Blessing, Opens Window Cleaning Business

Cape May, NJ (PRWEB) October 02, 2014 - Window Genie announces the grand opening of its newest location in Cape May, NJ on Monday October 6th. Paul Guglielmi is the owner/operator. Window Genie is a nationally ranked home service franchise specializing in window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning and much more. Window Genie of South Jersey will serve the Cape May, Atlantic and Cumberland counties.

Before opening his Window Genie franchise, Paul spent over 30 years in corporate America in sales and sales management for a few personal protective equipment companies. "I learned a lot and enjoyed it for many years," he said. "But my job became increasingly more difficult after losing members of my team because of the economic downturn a few years ago. I knew it was time for a change and began planning my exit strategy." In the midst of deciding what his next move would be; Paul's position was eliminated. "Be careful what you wish for," he said. "I planned to leave in early 2015 anyway, but ultimately the layoff was a blessing since it got me on my path towards business ownership sooner."

Paul began heavily researching franchise opportunities and attended a franchise expo in New York to learn more. He came in contact with a coach at The Entrepreneur's Source, a franchise consulting agency. "Working with a coach definitely helped me in narrowing down business opportunities that were right for me," Paul said. "I was focused on finding a service oriented business, especially one that allowed me to be out interacting with customers and not working behind a desk all day." Window Genie was one of many franchise opportunities that fit Paul's criteria and matched his interests, goals, strengths and weaknesses. He says he ultimately chose Window Genie because, "it was the most professional network I interacted with and the corporate support team was genuinely concerned about the individual success of every franchise location. I'm truly in business for myself but not by myself. Also, speaking to existing Window Genie owners helped paint a picture of a day in the life running the business. I saw myself being successful and happy as a Window Genie franchise owner because I'm confident in my skills and abilities, and know that owning a business is hard work. I'm prepared for it and welcome the challenge."

Paul looks forward to helping improve the look and value of homes and small businesses in his community. He said, "I'm excited to get out there and start building relationships with customers. We offer so many different, necessary services that there's definitely something for every home and budget. My wife JoAnn and I are involved in a lot of community service efforts and I look forward to getting the businessinvolved in giving back to the community as well."
