Must listen to for those in the franchise game or considering it

I was hooked from the start hearing it straight from those who have walked the walk. What small biz owner wouldn't appreciate free consulting advice of this caliber. The host and his guests cover a range of topics and I can’t wait for more content.

Very Helpful

Greg does a great job interviewing his guests and getting answers to the questions that you need to know if you’re considering a franchise. I listened to 4-5 of the episode , and I feel confident that I’m headed the right direction. And, he and his guests have a little fun along the way.

This guy is for real.

Enjoyed Macchia’s no nonsense approach and real world examples of the mindset it takes to step out from under the corporate umbrella. Thanks Greg!!
