Paul shares his entrepreneurial journey, tips & advice for starting & growing a business, building systems, and the benefits of franchising.
Paul is an entrepreneur and specializes in putting systems, processes and people in place in order to put any service-based business on auto-pilot. He has a successful corporate career, but then as he explains: “the buzz of a finance job in the big city lost its luster and Paul was looking for more.”
After taking two months to travel around South America, Paul decided to relocate to Raleigh, NC and start a career that was rewarding. In 2011, Paul invested in his first franchise business, combining his business experience with a passion for sports. Over the next 4.5 years, Paul grew his business to four franchise locations, impacting 1,000’s of kids each year!
At the end of 2015, Paul was ready to make his next move. He sold his four franchises for over 6x his initial investment and 3x his net profit. Soon after, Paul was hired by the franchisor, TGA Premier Sports, to be in charge of Business Development.
