If you don’t know me, I am italian. I am not a big fan of sweets, but man, I love gelato.

Here are 5 reasons to invest in a franchise for your E2 visa. We believe the reasons are very compelling.

In the previous blog post, we have been exploring why to invest in a franchise to get an E2 or an EB-5 visa. Let’s focus on the E2 visa specifically. The attached infographic above shows some interesting information regarding the E2 visa. The E2 visa is an investor visa, that as we are writing this blog, does not give access to citizenship. So it’s a non immigrant visa. Things might change in the future. A new bill will be introduced next week by David Jolly, Florida representative of the 13th congressional district, that proposes to give access to citizenship with an E2 after 10 years.

What is franchising ?

Written by admin on December 22, 2014

Have you ever wondered “What is franchising ?”.

Franchising is a growth and cash leveraging strategy. For a fee, a company that has a defined brand and an operating system, can franchise its concept, by teaching its system and allowing the use of its brand to an independent business owner. The company that franchises its system is called a franchisor, or Zor in the industry. The individual that buys into the system is an independent entity, called the franchisee or Zee.

Companies decide to franchise their concept to grow without having to invest added capital. The financial risk is supported by the franchisee. The franchisor provides training and support and is compensated in the form of royalties, usually on the franchisee’s gross sales. The franchisor needs committed individuals, business owners passionate about their business that will make their business a success. If a franchisee is successful, the franchisor will make money when collecting royalties.

A paradigm shift

Written by admin on August 26, 2014

A paradigm shift happens when we start to see reality from a different point of view. I hear often that perception is reality. Our fears, habits and preconceived ideas shape our beliefs and the way we see the world.

If you are or have been part of the corporate world, you might have been lured in believing that having a corporate job is the safest option, maybe the only option for you. After all, it seems safe to receive a paycheck at the end of the pay period, doesn’t it ? What if I told you that the good corporate jobs are gone and that you are not that safe anymore ?
