Because the basic franchise model provides many of the tools needed to succeed – then you build your customer base and “work it.”
As a result, THOUSANDS of people, regardless of their prior backgrounds, have been able to enter franchising and succeed.
If you can find something you really love to do, a great deal of energy and drive will come with it. And properly focused, this passion – and your inherent skills and experiences - can drive your franchising success.
Is it time for you to consider a change?

It’s All About Attitude
It’s not what you CAN DO that’s important. It’s what you WILL DO!
OK. Why Do You Need Me … To Help You Find A Franchise?
Most people begin this process saying, “I want to buy a Subway…” They fall in love with the product or service without really knowing whether it would make a GOOD INVESTMENT. There are MANY well-known franchises that are not necessarily good investments – so you have to know what you are doing.
There are over 3,500 companies that call themselves franchises – the evaluation process can be overwhelming unless you are focused – that is, you know what you want and know what to look for.
Most people “don’t know what they don’t know.” Just like buying a house for the first time, purchasing a franchise can be full of challenges – and it helps to have an advisor at your side.
So What Does MatchPoint Provide?
MatchPoint offers a FREE SERVICE to people who are thinking about getting into a franchise business of their own.
The company was founded with a single purpose:
to allow normal individuals like you and me the same tools, techniques and coaching for finding a franchise that are usually restricted to franchising’s “inner circle.”
In fact, we even call the service we offer “the insider’s approach to finding a franchise.”
The Insider’s Approach
Heat Map Profiling TM tool uses sophisticated psychological profiling techniques to “match” your personality characteristics to those of the successful owners in our select portfolio of franchise partners.
This tool can help provide you some initial guidance toward the “right” franchise industry segment(s) for you, and also help you see “hidden potential” in yourself – particularly if you feel your career has been in a rut.
