Funding Your Business
Use Your IRA/401K
to Fund Your Business
  
dollar 
If you have retirement funds that you have not yet paid taxes on, you can access those funds to capitalize a business. You can then use those funds to buy a business, for any business expense, and to pay salary!

 

You are in control, you decide how much of your retirement funds you wish to use for the business. When working with a company that specializes in this funding option, and follows all of the IRS guidelines, you are able to buy a business Debt Free and Equity Rich (from the rollover of your IRA/401K funds). Additionally, you'll have a new 401K/Profit Sharing Plan that you can begin to contribute Tax Deferred.

The Fear Factor of Buying a Franchise

 

fear 

 

Author and Philosopher Bertrand Russell once said "To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom."

Buying a franchise is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make, so feeling fear is not only normal, it is entirely appropriate to the situation.

Who has fear? Everyone! Fear prevents us (most of us, anyway) from jumping out of a moving car or going over a waterfall in a barrel. Fear helps us make choices that are less likely to endanger our lives. Fear also prevents us from gambling our life's savings on a horse race or marrying someone we've known only a few days.
  
However, when we feel we have enough information about a subject, we can often get over fear and do things that were beyond our comfort zone.
  
If you are one of those people who has done your homework and found the franchise opportunity you've always dreamed of but can't seem to commit to a decision, then the final doubts you have are probably about your own abilities rather than the franchise itself.
  
This is where a qualified franchise consultant can help you. By assessing your interests, skills and experience, a consultant can guide you to a decision where risks are at an acceptable level and the benefits, while not certain, are well worth the effort.
  
The only problem with fear is when you allow it to stop you from doing something you know will make a positive difference in your life. Don't let fear stop you from reaching your goals!

HomeWell Senior Care
Cash Needed: $75K
Total Investment: $75K-$150K
Current Locations: 75                                 

Founded in 1996 by Joshua Hoffman as Hoffman's Home Helpers, which later became HomeWell Senior Care in 2002 and expanded into franchising by partnering with other care-motivated professionals in 2003.

At the age of 19, Joshua became a caregiver in a nursing home.  The experience made an immediate impact on him.  Joshua soon found himself working with a home care agency, giving non-medical care to seniors on a regular basis.  Joshua realized that heartfelt in-home care provided by the right personal assistant could enhance the quality of life of a senior; with that, HomeWell was born.



HomeWell provides their franchise owners with complete pre-opening training support to help them prepare for their grand opening.  They also provide a comprehensive five-day training session that gives new franchisees a sense of confidence right from the start.  After the training, a dedicated project manager will continue to provide support all through the eight week post-training plan.  Once franchisees have completed the post-training, they will work closely with HomeWell's expert sales team to guide them through their proven sales process.

HomeWell also provides onsite territory development to reinforce the sales practices received during their core training.  Their dedicated sales professionals will visit the franchisee's site to support their sales efforts.  After the visit, PCA will provide support with weekly coaching and encouragement calls.  The calls are an opportunity to role-play through situations, provide guidance in strategic marketing, help identify potential referral sources, and strategize on the overall growth of the business.

HomeWell is passionate about helping their franchise owners succeed in building high-margin businesses that provide excellent services and value to their communities.  Their continued training programs provide all the resources you'll need to accomplish this.

Assisting Hands Home Care
Cash Needed: $75K
Total Investment: $180K-$152K
Current Locations: 143
                                 
Assisting Hands Home Care grew out of a desire to provide seniors, and others needing non-medical assistance at home, with the option that most people prefer - to remain independent, safe and comfortable in their own homes.  One of the founders of Assisting Hands Home Care is Dr. Gail Silverstein, who has more than 25 years of experience coordinating and leading healthcare programs in both the public and private sector.  It was Gail's understanding of the health care industry, along with the personal experience of trying to find assistance for her father at home, that led her to realize there was a serious gap in services.  She joined with Cline Waddell of Boise, ID to establish Assisting Hands Home Care.

 
 
Assisting Hands Home Care is one of the leaders in home care franchises, emphasizing exceptional customer service and personalized care, and providing their franchisees with a proven and scalable business model.  Their leadership team has a diverse background and a wealth of experience in many aspects of business operations including finance, marketing, and home health franchising, in addition to more than 25 years in the healthcare industry.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, an average of 10,000 people per day on average turning will turn age 65 per day.  And according to the AARP, 67% of them will need some type of long-term care in the future.  Only five percent reside or will reside in nursing homes.  Some live in assisted living facilities or in hospice, but the majority of America's aging population will age remain at home and will need in-home care.  Now would be a great time to the join this booming industry!
