I'm Meg Schmitz
I’m a franchise consultant who’s walked the talk of business ownership for 30 years.
I’ve helped hundreds of people just like you become franchise owners. I’m your entrepreneurial matchmaker, helping you achieve your goals of business ownership, financial security, and peace of mind.
Stop living someone else’s dream. It’s time to make your vision a reality.
Are you ready to take the leap?
Franchise Consulting Company
With 30 years of experience, I have all the tools and resources to guide you through an organized, established research process. Everything you need is all in one place when you work with me. There simply is no shortcut to making The Right Decision when you leverage all the tools I offer to you, which results in a confident decision that you have considered everything necessary to be a successful business owner. It takes considerable time and effort to take into consideration all of the most important elements before making a decision. No different from taking a job you know isn’t the right fit, to speed dating before marriage, the wrong decision comes with expensive consequences.
Whether absentee ownership, semi-active or job replacement, you don’t need to quit your corporate job in order to be financially successful. As your franchise business coach, you will learn how to use my playbook as I share my secrets to success that I have learned along the way. I’m considered a franchise expert and Guru by the Wall Street Journal because I have repeatedly invested in myself, with both franchise and independent businesses, and know what it takes to avoid costly mistakes to become, in turn, financially successful.

A Free, Consultative Approach
I provide complimentary consultation services to individuals considering franchise ownership. Much like an Executive Recruiter, when a match is made, the franchise company, sends me a placement referral fee.

- Determine if franchise ownership is the best avenue for you to reach your goals
- Send to you a bullet-point breakdown of the elements you need from the Right Concept
