    Franchising 101: Demystifying Investing in Franchise Businesses with Kyle DeHass

    Have you ever wanted to own your own business? Are you weighing options: a new job, owning a business, real estate investments? Do you like to have a playbook for running a business, with structure and process in place? We see many people taking all their eggs out of one basket and diversifying their assets. If this is something you have considered, it may be time to understand what it takes to own a franchise business. Some franchises can be operated semi-absentee while the owner keeps their full-time job. Others can be businesses the owner jumps into to run from the start. This presentation on facts and myths about franchise business ownership covers:

    • How to determine if franchise ownership is the right career path for you
    • How to quantify and maximize your financial returns in a franchise business
    • How to recognize and avoid the pitfalls of business ownership
    • Discussion of the types of franchises available in various industries
    • How to consider the various financing options available.

     

    About Our Speaker:

    Kyle DeHaas is a consultant and speaker with FranNet Central Texas, a franchise consulting company. Kyle has an extensive background in management consulting and business ownership. He has helped hundreds of people evaluate and execute on the decision to purchase a business in Central Texas. He is a graduate of UT School of Business BBA, and the Acton MBA in Entrepreneurship.

    Ever wonder what the best approach is to a raise conversation with your manager?

    Join Catherine Jewell, The Career Passion Coach at ATD Austin's April Chapter Meeting when she talks about...


    How to Ask for a Raise - and Get It!

    Have you been stuck with 3% raises while your job gets more complex and difficult? Have you wanted to ask for more pay, and just don’t have the courage? Have you wondered “How can I prove I’m worth more?” This presentation will show you how you can stop hoping and start acting. You CAN ask for a raise and you CAN be successful in getting it. We will cover:

    • ·         What to do before you ask
    • ·         How to prepare your case
    • ·         What not to say and why
    • ·         How to negotiate and counter-offer
    • ·         How to increase your chances of success

    Catherine Jewell is the Career Passion® Coach and a Professional Career Manager (PCM).  She works with salaried professionals who are rock star performers, tired of over-delivering for an under-earning job. They know there’s a better job out there, but don’t know what it’s called or how to get it. Her coaching company helps provide clear strategies and action steps to get the job, status and income they deserve.

    • Webinar

    Join us to learn about the increasing demand for security analysts, the skills covered in CompTIA’s newest security certification, CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+), and the CompTIA Cybersecurity Pathway from CompTIA Products Director, Patrick Lane.

    CSA+ is an international, vendor-neutral IT professional certification that applies behavioral analytics to improve the overall state of IT security. As attackers have learned to evade traditional signature-based solutions such as firewalls, an analytics-based approach within the IT security industry has become extremely important and essential for most organizations. The behavioral analytics skills covered by the CompTIA CSA+ certification identify and combat malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs), resulting in better threat visibility across a broad attack surface by focusing on network behavior, including an organization’s interior network.

    IT professionals looking to gain IT security analyst skills, and those following the CompTIA recommended skills pathway to achieve cybersecurity mastery, should consider earning the CompTIA CSA+ vendor-neutral certification.

    Many organizations struggle with outdated training methods that are no longer effective across multiple generations of learners. At the ATD LearnNow: The Modern Learner two-day workshop, learning and development (L&D) professionals will learn how to turn an existing training program into a modern learning program that will keep their companies and their own L&D organization relevant in today’s talent marketplace.

    L&D organizations are caught between two different, changing worlds: the organization and the employees. The C-suite wants development programs that attract, develop, and retain employees in today’s competitive talent world. Meanwhile, modern learners, a diverse, multinational group, want to have information when they need it and how they want it. Is your L&D team ready to transform into a modern learning organization?

    ATD’s LearnNow: The Modern Learner workshop will show you how to convert your organization into a modern learning and development culture.

    • Close skill gaps faster by enabling learning at the speed of the 24/7 digital workplace.
    • Engage modern learners by optimizing current learning methods, integrating learning solutions into the workplace, and applying a proprietary Learning Clusters design technique.
    • Modernize your L&D function, including a revamped L&D scorecard to reflect today’s realities.

    Workshop facilitators Crystal Kadakia and Lisa M.D. Owens bring a wealth of real-world experience and a proprietary learning clusters design technique that will help you transform one of your existing training programs into a modern learning program guaranteed to excite your learners. They will guide you through the the four challenges for modern L&D, while demonstrating the difference between traditional and modern learning programs.
