Bio:

"Over the past 23 years I have spent in the Pharmaceutical industry with 20 of those years in various sales management positions of increasing responsibility, I have learned many critical skills that I have been able to transfer to my new career as a Franchise Consultant.

"Some of the most memorable achievements during this time were consistently achieving or exceeding sales & leadership goals, being honored as 'Outstanding Manager of the Year' (Regional Award), managing and maintaining diverse teams, having high retention rates and promotion rates of team members. Developing lasting friendships and people who to this day still allow me to mentor and counsel them."

Why Shawn Became a Franchise Consultant:

"I became a franchise consultant after an intense 4 month self search for the right business opportunity. I did find and use three different franchise brokers, each helped direct me towards different opportunities but only one actually listened enough to help me find what I really wanted, which was the franchise broker opportunity, and earned the commission. The others lacked follow through and/or listening skills and showed me what they wanted versus what I wanted. This has become two main things that I have incorporated into my business as a standard as they are critical to increasing your success rate.

"I also felt that this business would allow me to help others like me who were down-sized and in need of replacement incomes.

"Finally, I felt I could use the sales skills, coaching and training skills, as well as, the communication skills that I had developed and utilized throughout my management career in pharmaceuticals.

"To date I have had success in helping people through the process to identify validate and get the offer stage with the franchisor. I have several people in the pipeline that should close this year."
