Ever wonder what owning a Crestcom business is like? We asked our current franchisees the top reasons for choosing Crestcom and here is what they had to say:
1. A Time-Tested Process That Works
Crestcom has been in business for over 30 years. In that time, we’ve learned a thing or two about how to run a successful leadership development franchise. There are also over 160 Crestcom franchisees around that world who, collectively, contribute hundreds of years of experience in the areas of human resources, training and development, executive leadership, and business development.
When you sign on to become a franchisee, you’re able to begin tapping into this deep pool of knowledge and experience immediately. Our turn-key training and processes are proven to help get franchisees off and running in their businesses quickly. Once you’ve begun to ramp up your business, you’ll have access to unlimited resources to help you continually improve and grow. As a Crestcom franchisee, your success is truly only as limited as you make it.
- The Economic Future
Did you know that corporate training is an over $360 billion industry worldwide? It’s an industry that only saw minor reductions during the global recession in 2008 and 2009, and has experienced tremendous investment growth for nearly a decade.
As the labor market continues to tighten in most areas, companies are looking for cost-effective ways to up-skill and retain their top talent. This means that younger employees are being promoted into management, while companies are investing more in the professional development of existing managers to drive retention, engagement, and efficiency.
These long-term trends make Crestcom an economically smart business move. There will always be new managers in business, and they will always require management training because no one is “born” with these skills. If you’re passionate about leadership development and are curious about starting your own business, Crestcom is a worthy opportunity to explore.
- Be Your Own Boss
In his book, Impossible to Inevitable, ex-Salesforce executive turned sales consultant Aaron Ross asks: “Are you ready to earn or are you ready to learn?”
It’s his answer to the question he gets asked often: Should I start my own business or take this new job offer? According to Ross, if you’re more interested in learning, take the job. If you’re ready to earn, start your own business.
At Crestcom, we don’t ask people to choose. When you start your Crestcom franchise, you’re going to both earn and learn. But the point that Ross is making is an important one for those teetering on the edge. You have put in your time in the corporate world. You’ve learned A LOT from that time and experience. Is it your time to use that experience to earn?
When you become a Crestcom franchisee, you become your own boss. You make the executive decisions that are best for you and your business. Share your own professional experiences, decide who your clients are, when you need time off, and what hours work best for you. Business ownership isn’t always going to be easy, but owning a franchise that has the experience, support network, and product recognition to help you be successful certainly gives you a head start.
- Work From Home Business
Interested in owning your own business, but concerned about the costs? Let’s chat about our low-cost franchise opportunity.
Crestcom franchise ownership doesn’t require a storefront or office space. Most franchisees get started on their own, then grow into hiring assistants, sales reps, and/or trainers if their goal is to scale their business. Others take on the clients that they can handle themselves and maintain that size to maintain their desired lifestyle. Either way, owning a Crestcom management training franchise requires almost no overhead and is flexible to grow with your vision of success.
- Become Part Of Something Meaningful
Are you passionate about being able to give back while earning and owning your own business? Every day Crestcom franchisees get to give back to their communities.
Providing professionals, managers, and leaders the practical tools they need to improve professionally and personally has wide-ranging impacts. Crestcom training participants share touching stories about how their training has not only improved their relationships and earning potential at work but has also strengthened relationships in their personal lives.
When people are empowered to make better decisions and communicate more clearly, everyone around them feels the impact. The effect is positive and multiplicative. Crestcom franchisees thrive off of what they hear and witness from participants and people in their community as a result of their work.
