Listen to insight, inspiration and advice from other entrepreneurs.
Learn what it takes to succeed in franchising and small business on Ceterus' Small Business Edge podcast series.
Small business and franchise entrepreneurs make up most of America's entrepreneurs.
However, across the spectrum of entrepreneurship, solopreneurs and start up entrepreneurs are often the focus—leaving the middle of the spectrum, small business entrepreneurs—with limited resources to rely on as they navigate the peaks and valleys of owning their own business.
Small Business Edge was specifically designed with this community in mind. The podcast series has become an invaluable resource for those at every stage of business development—from those considering the leap to those fully invested but eager to learn more as their business grows.
Steve Eddleston had a successful career in Customer Support for High Tech, working for Honeywell and Digital in New Zealand for 20 years before he decided to relocate to Boston in his mid-twenties. He got married, had kids, and after 35 years of excelling in his career, he decided to make a big career change.
Steve decided to purchase his first Planet Fitness location, even after his accountant advised him against it. Steve had quick success with the first location, and one location quickly became two locations. Now, he owns 15 locations throughout the New England area.
On this episode of the Small Business Edge podcast, Steve shares how to get started in the franchising world, and how to navigate the challenges of being a franchise owner.
