Our gift to you: an Emotional Intelligence Workshop!
Tortal is pleased to present this FREE workshop with our own Evan Hackel.
We’re hosting the event on December 2, 2020 | 6:30-9:00 p.m. Eastern | FREE! Virtual Event via Zoom
This won’t be a typical training workshop. This workshop is going to focus on connecting with your e·mo·tion·al in·tel·li·gence: your capacity to be aware of, control, and express your emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically (according to the Oxford dictionary).
Embracing the Unknown will help you learn how to move your life forward in the chaotic world we currently live in.
As a longtime IFA member and FBN supporter in Denver, LOCALACT is excited to share the news that we’ve partnered with the International Franchise Association and Google to launch an inaugural virtual event for franchisees:
Given all of the changes that have occurred in franchising throughout 2020, we are bringing together several leaders from our world to discuss a variety of topics that impact individual business owners at a local level, including marketing, public policy, governmental affairs and more. Our goal is to provide attendees with key takeaways and action items that they can use to help set their businesses up for success in 2021. Registration is free for anyone who would like to participate, we hope both you and anyone else interested within your business network can join us in December! Complete details and agenda are included at the link above.
Recognizing the importance of planning for success and being prepared for what we will need to do, we organized the HEAT Franchise Summit. It is all about preparing for the future and focusing on growth and profitability.
H.E.A.T. is where innovation fuels momentum. Where energy and ideas spark solutions. It’s how we harness the power of our community to drive business forward in franchising’s brave new world. Join us for three days of insight from professional speakers, industry experts, franchisees, key suppliers and your peers, as well as actionable ideas you can use in hosting your own future virtual events. This is not a webinar, it is a virtual event unlike any other, with technology that lets you move in and out of rooms just like an in-person event—every space is optimized for networking and connecting.
“Be My Own Boss” Continues to Rank as No. 1 Motivation in Small-Business Ownership Survey
The pandemic has not changed the primary drivers of business ownership — independence and controlling your own destiny remain the most powerful motivations for owning a business. In fact, working for oneself is the No. 1 reason cited by entrepreneurs researching ownership across the leading network of online franchise information directory brands.
“Be my own boss” was the No. 1 reason selected when asked “Why do you want to own your own business?”, with 88.4% of the responses in Q2 2020. That’s down slightly from 86.7% in Q1, but the same response rate as Q4 2019.
The survey allowed multiple responses, and many entrepreneurs also selected “Income Potential” as an additional reason – it ranked a strong No. 2, with 71% […]

Beverly, MA – Supporting Strategies, a provider of outsourced bookkeeping services, controller services and operational support, has announced the opening of its 100th location, Greater Cincinnati Ohio owned by Managing Director Craig Feltner.
The company reached this milestone just seven years after launching its franchise model.
“We have added franchises on a steady basis since 2013 and now have a presence in 30 states,” said Leslie Jorgensen, Supporting Strategies Founder and CEO. “The strong response to our franchising opportunity has been gratifying to see, as has the success of our family of franchisees.”
According to a story by the Franchise Performance Group, only 18% of the 3,800 franchise brands in the United States have more than 100 units or territories.
“Early on, we made a real effort to find out what worked, and what didn’t work, for our initial franchisees,” said Steve […]
