I loved the idea of buying a franchise because so much of the leg work is already done for you.
Pflugerville, Texas (PRWEB) May 27, 2014
For 20 years, Karyn Brown worked in the insurance industry in various capacities – leadership, marketing, sales, communication, customer service, etc. When the idea of purchasing a franchise crossed her path, she knew she was ready to take that next step from employee to employer.
“I realized that I have a pretty well-rounded business background and that I know enough about all areas of business to run a business by myself,” she said.
Brown learned about a Mosquito Squad franchise opportunity during a call with her FranNet consultant, Merri Cronk. “I loved the idea of buying a franchise because so much of the leg work is already done for you,” Brown explained. “I thought the idea of mosquito control was brilliant … I was hooked.”
Mosquito Squad has one goal: to help people regain control of their yards by eliminating pests, such as mosquitoes and ticks, that drive them indoors. Their traditional spray can rid yards of up to 95 percent of mosquitoes, while their all-natural spray, made of essential oils, repels up to 75 percent.
It was also Brown’s FranNet consultant who introduced Brown to Guidant Financial, a company specializing in helping aspiring entrepreneurs finance their business using 401(k) rollovers. “I felt like I was in good hands throughout the process [with Guidant],” Brown said. “The idea of forming my own corporation was totally new to me, but everyone was very patient and helpful.”
Brown is now a firm believer in using this innovative method of financing and encourages other aspiring business owners to explore it as well. “I feel confident that not only am I ready for success, but I am cushioned for the ups and downs that always come with a new business.”
The grand opening of the new North Austin Mosquito Squad location was last week. For more information, visit northaustin.mosquitosquad.com, email northaustin(at)mosquitosquad(dot)com or call (512)872-6608.
