Stelley who attended in 2004 and now has a gyme with more than 600 members says of the program, says"I think it was tremendously informative. It guided me to wisely choose a franchise that caters to my lifestyle. That's very important. Basically, they gave me all the information you need, from legalities to bank loans. It covered all the bases you need to open a business, whether it's a franchise or you're starting a business on your own."
