More About Gloria

Book a time and we'll get started!  

I'm honored and delighted to work with my clients who are eager to explore new opportunities open to them that are alternatives to the standard corporate J.O.B, or the rocky road of independent start-ups.  I love to work with those who are ready to utilize their skills and passions in new ways to Own their Career and make a meaningful impact in their community and for their family. We change lives for the better!

Our unique Discovery Process opens new doors for my clients that they had never considered before, or believed were unattainable for them, personally.

The world of career ownership creates a platform of success for my clients that not only make economic and common sense, but offer a new lease for those who have been battered by corporate, dismissed by ageism or told they cannot earn a significant income just because they want to be home and available for their families. We're here because The New Economy says otherwise!

I walk my clients through the process of identifying their personal and professional goals, and exploring the many ways they can own their career and manage their own destiny in the business world.

Most of my clients explore the alternatives of career ownership for the following reasons:

  • They've been downsized or 'right-sized' by Corporate
  • Aged out by Corporate
  • Want to diversify their investments and not depend wholly on the stock market
  • Have the desire to spend more time with family, or work along-side their family
  • Create a Family Business Legacy
  • Want to be home with family and still make a respectable income
  • Have always thought about owning a business, but have never acted on those thoughts and desires because they didn't know where to start, or whom to trust.

I provide valuable, useful, information, along with critical connections and space to explore new options through a targeted, and  productive process that addresses your specific goals and needs.

We'll work together to identify your income needs, lifestyle goals and future expectations in a no-pressure, no-sales environment.

We'll explore new career and business avenues you may not have considered previously.

By identifying transferable skills, needs and preferences,  together we find the right business fit.

This process results in clarity and excitement about your future potential and personal career goals.

We begin with a Complimentary Coaching Session.

I'd strongly recommend you talk with Gloria about franchises. She is easy to talk to, very knowledgeable, and sure to help you find the franchise that fits your current needs. I just opened my first franchise this month and had the second best Grand Opening in company history. Remember... "Build your own dreams or someone else will hire you to build theirs”

JW placed in a semi-absentee boutique-spa exercise franchise model. He has two unites open at this time and is working toward a third, soon. He raises donations for charities regularly, using his franchise as a vehicle for his ultimate goals of serving others. 


What advice would you give to a friend or colleague *who was considering going into business on their own?

1. Theres often more risk in working for someone else than owning your own business.

 2. In many cases, the most fiscal, social, and community-based impact you can have is by being your own boss.

 3. Not all franchises have enormous fees.

 4. If someone has a desire to explore a franchise opportunity without knowing what he/she specifically wants, thats okay as there are coaches like Gloria to provide a path.

Gloria exhibits true professionalism, ability, and business acumen. Her efforts were instrumental in helping us discover the right franchise. We see Gloria as a business coach and resource rather than a sales rep. and feel grateful to have benefited from her guidance.”  J and A  started our conversation stating: “ We want a business in which we can earn equity. We don’t want to keep making money for someone else!”


Gloria is an excellent coach. I worked with Gloria to determine if going into business for myself was a good idea. Gloria is a careful listener and drew out information to help me make an informed decision. There was no pressure involved at all. When I decided to move ahead, she researched and presented very different options, each of which touched upon an interest I’d expressed. There are a lot of franchises out there, and not all of them have strong business models. Gloria helped to keep me focused, and introduced me to a business that was an excellent fit for my career and personal goals. I highly recommend her.

JK's motivation to move into her own business? “I’ve got dents in my head from trying to break into leadership in my company. I’m aging out and I’m not going to get where I want to go if I stay here”


Thanks for taking a few minutes to check out my services. I look forward to helping you find the options that are right for you.
