Working with Guidant has been one of the best business decisions I've made so far.

As a mother of two young children, Mona Goyal needs flexibility in her work schedule. Her previous career as a business analyst didn’t offer the freedom she was looking for, so Goyal set her sights on opening her own business.

Goyal was looking for a way she could contribute to her local community when she discovered Mathnasium, a math learning franchise for students from second through 12th grades. “Mathnasium teaches math in a way that makes sense to kids,” Goyal said.

With the balance a franchise offers between a proven business model and the freedom to make her own decisions, Goyal knew franchising was the right choice for her. “[The best part of owning my own business is] knowing that I can provide a great service to my community while being flexible enough to spend time with my kids,” Goyal explained.

Goyal was able to use her retirement funds to finance her franchise with the help of Guidant Financial, a business financing firm recommended to her by Mathnasium. The plan Guidant used, formally known as Rollovers for Business Start-ups, allowed Goyal to take a distribution from her 401(k) to invest in her franchise without having to pay a tax penalty.

“It was an absolute worry-free process [with Guidant], knowing that everything was taken care of in a timely, secure and professional manner,” Goyal testified. “Working with Guidant has been one of the best business decisions I’ve made so far.”

Thanks to Goyal’s decision to pursue entrepreneurship, she’s now able to spend more quality time with her 5-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son. Goyal also enjoys reading in her spare time and having fun with her family.

East Windsor’s Mathnasium, located at 319 U.S. 130, Suite 4, opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 15. To learn more about Mathansium and its services, visit, call 609-308-MATH (6284) or email eastwindsor(at)mathnasium(dot)com.
