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.

Fun Facts
Monkey Joe lived on Coco-nutty Island when he slipped and fell, but didn't get hurt-- he bounced off a patch of vines and moss. "What fun this is to bounce!" he thought. Monkey Joe left the island to share his bouncing, sliding fun with kids at Monkey Joe's Party and Play Center.

Monkey Joe's was founded by Daryl Dollinger in 2004 and is currently based out of Atlanta, GA.

Today, there are over 60 Monkey Joe's locations nationwide.

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!
