Today’s guest episode of USR features Paul Maskill! Graduating from the University of Michigan with a Finance degree in hand, Paul climbed the Corporate Ladder in Chicago all the way to the top. Not long into his career in Corporate America, the buzz of a finance job lost its luster – sitting in a cubicle for 10-12 hours a day while building someone else’s business was not Paul’s idea of a living the dream. So, he quit!
“The key to building a profitable and sustainable business starts with understanding people.”
After taking two months to travel around South America, Paul relocated to Raleigh, NC to invest in his first TGA franchise: a perfect combination of his business experience with a passion for sports. TGA makes golf and tennis more accessible to students ages 3-15 through on campus after school programs, summer camps, parent/child events and more. Over the next 4.5 years, Paul grew his business to four franchises, impacting 1,000’s of kids each year.
In this episode, you will learn:
-how to guarantee the investments you’re making in your business actually pay off
-simple ways to build a business that supports freedom and flexibility
-keys to set yourself up for success that continues long after your business days are over
Paul now works with current franchise owners to help build their business into organizations with people, processes and systems in place so that the business can thrive without relying on the owner (Paul calls this working ON versus working IN their business). He also works with all prospective franchise owners on putting together their business plan while evaluating all of the moving parts of the business and their geographic area.
“Patience and persistence, and it’ll pay off”
