My name is William Wright, and I am your franchise broker. I would like to take a minute to introduce myself. I ask a lot of questions while I search for the right franchise for you, getting to know who you are and what makes you tick, and want to be equally open in return.
I was born and raised Pacific Northwest, and feel lucky to still call this beautiful area home. I am a devoted family man, with an incredible wife and our energetic 3-year-old daughter — the treasure in both our lives. My greatest pleasure comes from watching her eyes question the world and guiding her as she discovers answers. I could write far more here than anyone would be interested in, so let me just say this: I understand how important it is to make decisions that will support your family, if you have one.
In both my work and personal life, I love learning about other people’s successes, struggles and special moments in life. I studied Cultural Anthropology and Environmental Studies at university, and have always been interested in how people interact with the world around them. There are so many ways this gets intertwined in daily life – your daily life and the lives of your future customers. As your franchise broker, I learn about your relationships with family and work, your struggles and successes, what you love, what you don’t. It all harkens back to how we interact with the community around us and our environment.
My career has led me through many different industries, including a stint as education program manager that allowed me to travel constantly: five cities a week, for four years. The autonomy this job gave me offered some of the greatest learning I’ve experienced. It required discipline, attention to detail, and making the best decisions for the company to thrive. Now having owned my own business for over a year, I can say the learning curve is steep, hard, exhilarating, nerve-racking, and the most rewarding thing I have ever done. Not just for my personal success, but because I have the honor of watching others succeed. From the young, first-time entrepreneur starting their empire to the couple creating a retirement business, a legacy for their family.
I value family, honesty, loyalty, travel, and a good smile. A fun fact about myself: I had visited all 50 states, five Canadian provinces, and four African countries by the time I was 25. Since then, I have added another six countries in Europe and Central America.
Looking forward, my goal is to help as many people as possible to be successful with their goals. That doesn’t mean franchising is always the right fit, my goal means listening to people and helping them find the right path forward. If Franchising or Business Ownership doesn’t look like the right path forward, I will be honest. I would much rather have a successful person than a failed franchise owner.
My tagline is: Freedom, Lifestyle, Wealth. What does that mean for you? I look forward to learning about you.
