  • The potential rewards of owning your own business;
  • Whether or not the numbers make sense;

  • And much more!

As the former president of LendingTree Inc. and other major companies, he now owns a profitable and growing franchised business, and he's sharing his secrets for success in Franchise: Freedom or Fantasy?
