FRANCHISE: What the Franchisees are saying
Testimonials of veteran WSI franchisee’s:
“WSI being ranked #1 in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 listening for 7 years in a row says a lot about the credibility of the organization. One of my key buyer values was flexibility, and with WSI’s recurring revenue model, it has allowed me to pretty much do whatever I want to do whenever I need to. As an active member in the Marine Corps Reserves, I am able to commit to military orders and still work my WSI business as long as I have an internet connection and phone. This model is an ideal fit for motivated entrepreneurs.”
Andrew Nguyen, US Marines
“When I retired from the Air Force in 2006 after 25+ years of service to my country, I figured it was time to do something different. The typical path of a retiring service member is to find a job working with the military, either as a Civil Service or government contracted employee. But frankly, the thought of putting on a suit and tie, driving through traffic every day, and serving a new master didn’t jazz me. Then I stumbled upon the WSI opportunity. Everything I learned during the transition assistance program seminars, things like “Find something you love to do” and “Don’t settle for just another job,” started ringing loudly in my ears. This was a chance to be my own boss, work from home, call all the shots, and directly reap the benefits of my military hardened work ethic. I just knew that if I could be a success in the military, I could be a success doing anything. Yes, this was a complete career change with a whole new set of skills to learn…it was a little like being a new military trainee but now I was fortified with the wisdom, communication skills, and decision-making ability that my military career prepared me for.
I haven’t been disappointed. WSI franchise ownership has been everything I hoped it would be and more. In fact, my best buddy in the Air Force — he retired as a Lieutenant Colonel on the same day I did — decided to become unshackled from corporate life and join my business a year ago. He is now a 50% owner in the business and is enjoying the same excitement, challenge, and prosperity this business has afforded me.”
