Teaching local residents the ins and outs of franchising is something that I do at many Northeast Ohio venues, including a pretty amazing facility, Cleveland Corporate College..
In addition to teaching classes there every quarter, I attend seminars on marketing, sales, and try to get to the many networking events that take place year round. Anne Hach was the main gal for a couple of years in the Key Entrepreneur Center, inside Corporate College.
Now, she moved on up, and a fine chap by the name of Brad Kleinman runs things.
Brad is a techy guy, and has a little web consulting company of his own. BSK Consulting
He IS an entrepreneur. I am too. Watch two of us chat about franchising, and small business,
