The best part of franchising is that it's a proven system you can use to make money. So why did Joe sell his franchise business to start consulting franchises on how to recruit and grow? Watch to find out.


Hi, my name is Joe Hesmondhalgh, and I wanted to shoot this quick testimonial for the Sam Ovens consulting accelerator program. I live in a small city in New Zealand called Tauranga, and prior to getting involved with the accelerator program I've been involved in the franchising industry, and I ran and managed a franchise group of around about 100 franchises in the home service industry. I recently sold that business but wanted to get into the consulting industry and teach potential franchisors, people who wanted to franchise their business, the tips and the tricks and the pitfalls to avoid. The thing is I didn't know anything about the consulting industry, so I actively searched out information about how to start a consulting business and what to do. I discovered the Sam Ovens consulting accelerator program and after a lot of research, decided to purchase it. I've owned it for about two months now, I've been through the program, it's incredibly comprehensive, but it's also step by step, so it's easy to follow, and I've completed the vast majority of the course now. Even before I finished the course I've managed to sign up two consulting clients already, both of them paying several thousand dollars a month in retaining fees, so the information is absolutely amazing and I wouldn't have been able to so that in such a short space of time without the consulting accelerator program. As I'm nearing completing the program I envisage scaling that up to sign 10, 15, 20 consulting clients within the next few months. So I do highly recommend the Sam Ovens consulting accelerator program to anybody, and in fact I've already recommended it to a colleague of mine who's starting a consulting business in a totally different field. So thanks very much Sam, you've put together an amazing program and I highly recommend it to anybody. Thanks very much.
