5 Step Guide

to Building Real Equity in Your Career
ACCESS MY GUIDE

As a franchise consultant and business startup coach in Downtown Phoenix, Arizona, I help my clients find the perfect business model to startup and the best way to finance their venture.

In many cases the best way to achieve your career goals is not through a traditional career, but through alternative strategies like business ownership and investing. The key is to set those goals clearly and keep an open mind while you explore all of the opportunities that you have available to you. As we work together we begin with the end in mind and evaluate the various possibilities that are out there.

Using resources and tools like the business model canvas, your DISC profile and questions designed to help you think clearly about the future my clients get clarity on what their next move will be.

I live in downtown Phoenix with my wife and three kids. I was educated at the Indiana University School of Informatics which focused on making technology work to solve specific problems that humans have; in business, medicine, education, etc.

After graduation, I traveled to 14 of the world’s poorest countries, primarily in the Southern Hemisphere as I helped to set and manage global strategy at Food for the Hungry, a humanitarian relief and development agency. In that instance, my team and I used technology to work towards our vision of ending global poverty, which will be a never-ending battle.

As my young family began to grow my passions turned more local than global and I got involved in the tech startup scene in the “silicon desert” of Phoenix, Arizona.

Not only is Loren a savvy businessman and coach, but he is also a family man and full of integrity. He understands the pressures that bear on people from all fronts, and listens and advises wisely according to each person's circumstances and aspirations. I highly recommend sitting down with Loren to receive his coaching and perspective on your next steps in finding the work/life balance you want.

Business Owner
I have received tremendous support and guidance from Loren and would highly recommend him for your entrepreneurial pursuits. I have had interactions with several different brokers and franchise representatives over a year of searching for a business and no one came close to offering the tailored support that I received from Loren. Loren utilized resources to aid in analyzing my personality, strengths and interests and then continued to tailor opportunities based on an increasing understanding of my goals, strengths and priorities. I truly felt that Loren was interested in finding the right business for me.

Owner and Operator of Professional Handled Services Inc
I can say with all honesty I would not have had the knowledge, courage and direction to follow this path of entrepreneurship. He coached me on first understanding myself and my own wants and desires and then sent me on the path of shopping for the right business for me. If you have ever thought about owning your own business but are uncertain how to start, I recommend speaking to Loren.

Sincerely,
James Matthew Richards

Loren provided me with tremendous support and guidance during my search for a franchise opportunity. Our weekly conversations helped me truly understand the challenges associated with owning a franchise as well as the amazing, life changing benefits. Once I decided on a franchise opportunity, Loren made sure that I had lines of communication with every person involved in the process and at times, even reached out to them on my behalf. He genuinely cares and wants you to be successful. I highly recommend Loren to be your franchise consultant.

He helped me to keep an open mind and to not rely on preconceived notions I had about certain fields or business models. It really was a great learning process. Loren's honesty and candor during the process was very refreshing. I truly felt he was looking out for my best interests.

I'd highly recommend Loren to help anyone in their pursuit of business ownership.

Loren is a gentleman! From our first conversation I could tell Loren had a genuine desire to help me find the best franchise for me and my geographic location. Loren taught me how to overcome doubts by asking the right questions and by connecting me with individuals in his extensive business network. If your shopping for a franchise I highly recommend you reach out to Loren to guide you through the process.

I've been working with Loren in the process of narrowing down investment choices for a franchise and have been very satifisfied with his professional approach, his knowledge of the market, and thorough process of matching my interests to various options. Would definitely recommend him to any prospective investors!

Loren was a great help in identifying a number of potential franchises for me. After asking me a number of questions about myself and my goals, he went to work to match my attributes to businesses that fit my desires. I really felt he had my best interests in mind.

I highly recommend Loren if you have even the slightest desire to own a business. He will guide you in the right direction and even if you decide not to take the next step, he will treat you professionally and with great respect.

Curious Entrepreneur
Working with Loren was an invaluable experience. First off, I did not end up investing in a franchise but Loren really helped me tackle a lot of different options with a very low pressure approach. He is very clearly more concerned with helping people find fulfillment and success than just making a sale. He went above and beyond what I would expect to make sure I had clarity and information to move in a direction that lined up with my passions and my family. If we ever consider a franchise again, Loren will be the first one we contact!

Every once in a while somehow you meet someone who is different. Someone who is competent, courteous, listening and available. Loren is focused on the other person's success, which of course is why he is successful. He knows his business and he helps others.

Educational Consultant, Speaker and Leadership Coach
Loren spent weeks with me, helping me identify my interests and aptitudes in order to acquire a business that I believe will be instrumental in allowing me to accomplish my goals. I have served 28 years as a missionary and church planter in Brazil and when I first met Loren, I expressed the desire to start a nonprofit organization.

He showed me how I could fund such an organization through purchasing a franchise business. He presented me with three franchise opportunities one of which was a tutoring service called Tutor Doctor, which I eventually purchased.

Loren served as a liaison to help bring all the necessary parties together so that the franchise possibility could become a reality. The process took over five months and Loren saw me to the end. He coached and encouraged me through the whole drawn out process, which I probably would have shelved partway through without his encouragement.

I recommend Loren as a highly qualified business coach equipped to help others identify business opportunities and successfully acquire them through the dynamics of his matching, coaching and encouraging process.

I just recently started the non-profit organization, which proved to be an endeavor greatly undergirded by the learning process that Loren guided me through.

Finance
I have been working in big business for a long time and wanted to explore self-employment. Loren has been extremely helpful to me in my search for a new business opportunity. His approach is truly educational and stress-free. Loren's use of interpretive analysis tools has been very useful in helping me to better understand businesses that may or may not be a good fit for me. He is a good listener, supportive, focused, and well organized. All strong assets necessary to keep my exploration effective and on track. Thank you, Loren!

Construction Manager
I contacted Loren a few months ago because I liked what his profile said on an advert he had on Bizbuysell. From my first contact, Loren treated me with nothing but respect, listening intently to every rambling word I had to say. I've had coaching in the past but none quite like this gentleman had to offer.

Though on this occasion, I have decided not to pursue a franchise, Loren did help me realize that ultimately I want to be my own boss, putting my own standards in place. Loren has a wonderful demeanor and approach which is hard to come by these days. He will help you with time frames, finance options, your personal finance needs to survive, franchise options, meeting set ups and much more.

Not once did I feel under any pressure to make a purchase. He stands by his word "This is not about getting you to buy a business through me, it's about helping you figure out what you want to do". I'm very grateful for Loren's support through a transitional period in my life and highly recommend him, whether you are just exploring options or are actively seeking a franchise to purchase.
