In Business Since1999
Many successful business leaders are now choosing to use their vast experience to greater benefit through independent enterprise. In addition, individuals and executives are no longer willing to exchange their family lives and personal interests for the job. This increasing trend is directly satisfied by FocalPoint. Our franchise opportunity provides an expansive network our coaches can leverage as they operate a successful business as a FocalPoint Coach. As one of the few white-collar franchises, FocalPoint's structure ensures that franchisees receive exceptional training and the resources needed to be successful. FocalPoint provides an essential marketing, sales and client support system, which is constantly enhanced for relevance and impact.
FocalPoint provides each franchisee with exceptional marketing, training, support and development systems, along with industry leading knowledge and information that are transferred to clients via 48 weeks of coaching curriculum.
As a FocalPoint franchisee you have a significant advantage over traditional franchise models that require large upfront investment and start-up costs. The FocalPoint model requires no inventory and has low operational overhead, while obtaining premium margins for the service your franchise will provide to the clients. As well, the on-going royalties are fixed rather than a traditional percentage of revenues ensuring that success is never penalized and that all franchisees contribute to the systems and continued development of the franchise equally.
Lastly, our organization enjoys the market acceptance and brand recognition of Brian Tracy, which instantly establishes your credibility and distances you from those with lesser offerings.

Each month, Business Coaching Franchisees submit a Status Report to their Master Franchisees for evaluation. Likewise, Master Franchisees submit similar reports to FocalPoint corporate personnel. Using these reports, Master Franchisees and FocalPoint staff can collaborate with franchisees to develop and implement strategies for continual business improvement.
Effective plans are the keys to any successful endeavor. So, every three months, Business Coaching Franchisees complete a plan of activities for the next quarter. These plans are reviewed by the applicable Master Franchise, who provides feedback and assists in the development and execution of these plans.
