Due to the current pandemic, many business professionals have experienced job loss or cut backs. Maisha Cox was one of these professionals who back in April found herself out of a job. Maisha quickly decided that she wanted more for herself and her family and contacted Leslie Kuban, a local franchise expert, and owner of FranNet Atlanta. Maisha knew that she wanted to set out on her own but she wasn’t sure of the direction she wanted to take. She had previously been a product manager in the hospitality industry and could bring those skills with her to her new endeavor. Based on Maisha’s experience, her future goals, and her personality, Leslie presented her with franchise options that were personalized and thriving in the current environment. Maisha narrowed down her choices and decided upon the ecomaids franchise. ecomaids is the leading innovator of environmentally responsible, non-toxic residential cleaning services for families.
In this episode of The Atlanta Small Business Show, Maisha and Leslie speak to Jim about this further and the process involved in pivoting into a franchise as an option for those looking for more security and the freedom of entrepreneurship. They also discuss Maisha’s career background and what prepared her for business ownership, why she choose to franchise, why she pursued the EcoMaids franchise, and the process used to determine what franchise was best for Maisha. Tune-in to find out more about Masiha and how Leslie helped her to pursue her dream of entrepreneurship.
