Recent Client Testimonials:
Danielle Medina, Business Owner
I have received tremendous support and guidance from Loren and would highly recommend him for your entrepreneurial pursuits. I have had interactions with several different brokers and franchise representatives over a year of searching for a business and no one came close to offering the tailored support that I received from Loren. Loren utilized resources to aid in analyzing my personality, strengths and interests and then continued to tailor opportunities based on an increasing understanding of my goals, strengths and priorities. I truly felt that Loren was interested in finding the right business for me.
James M Richards, Owner and Operator of Professional Handled Services Inc
I can say with all honesty I would not have had the knowledge, courage and direction to follow this path of entrepreneurship. He coached me on first understanding myself and my own wants and desires and then sent me on the path of shopping for the right business for me. If you have ever thought about owning your own business but are uncertain how to start, I recommend speaking to Loren.
James Matthew Richards
Bobby Cross, Supply Chain Professional
Loren did an outstanding job taking the time to learn and understand my needs, wants, strengths, and weaknesses. He helped me to keep an open mind and to not rely on preconceived notions I had about certain fields or business models. It really was a great learning process. Loren’s honesty and candor during the process was very refreshing. I truly felt he was looking out for my best interests.
I’d highly recommend Loren to help anyone in their pursuit of business ownership.
C. Andrew Popa, Senior Director of Operations
I’ve been working with Loren in the process of narrowing down investment choices for a franchise and have been very satisfied with his professional approach, his knowledge of the market, and thorough process of matching my interests to various options. Would definitely recommend him to any prospective investors!
Timothy Kaszynski, General Manager
Loren was a great help in identifying a number of potential franchises for me. After asking me a number of questions about myself and my goals, he went to work to match my attributes to businesses that fit my desires. I really felt he had my best interests in mind.
I highly recommend Loren if you have even the slightest desire to own a business. He will guide you in the right direction and even if you decide not to take the next step, he will treat you professionally and with great respect.
Dave Fladung, Curious Entrepreneur
Working with Loren was an invaluable experience. First off, I did not end up investing in a franchise but Loren really helped me tackle a lot of different options with a very low pressure approach. He is very clearly more concerned with helping people find fulfillment and success than just making a sale. He went above and beyond what I would expect to make sure I had clarity and information to move in a direction that lined up with my passions and my family. If we ever consider a franchise again, Loren will be the first one we contact!
Rick Spinos, Educational Consultant
Loren spent weeks with me, helping me identify my interests and aptitudes in order to acquire a business that I believe will be instrumental in allowing me to accomplish my goals. I have served 28 years as a missionary and church planter in Brazil and when I first met Loren, I expressed the desire to start a nonprofit organization.
He showed me how I could fund such an organization through purchasing a franchise business. He presented me with three franchise opportunities one of which was a tutoring service called Tutor Doctor, which I eventually purchased.
Loren served as a liaison to help bring all the necessary parties together so that the franchise possibility could become a reality. The process took over five months and Loren saw me to the end. He coached and encouraged me through the whole drawn out process, which I probably would have shelved partway through without his encouragement.
I recommend Loren as a highly qualified business coach equipped to help others identify business opportunities and successfully acquire them through the dynamics of his matching, coaching and encouraging process.
I just recently started the non-profit organization, which proved to be an endeavor greatly undergirded by the learning process that Loren guided me through.
Rory O’Brien, Construction Manager
I contacted Loren a few months ago because I liked what his profile said on an advert he had on Bizbuysell. From my first contact, Loren treated me with nothing but respect, listening intently to every rambling word I had to say. I’ve had coaching in the past but none quite like this gentleman had to offer.
Though on this occasion, I have decided not to pursue a franchise, Loren did help me realize that ultimately I want to be my own boss, putting my own standards in place. Loren has a wonderful demeanor and approach which is hard to come by these days. He will help you with time frames, finance options, your personal finance needs to survive, franchise options, meeting set ups and much more.
Not once did I feel under any pressure to make a purchase. He stands by his word “This is not about getting you to buy a business through me, it’s about helping you figure out what you want to do”. I’m very grateful for Loren’s support through a transitional period in my life and highly recommend him, whether you are just exploring options or are actively seeking a franchise to purchase.

He listened attentively to our interests and goals and presented options to us in alignment with what we wanted to do. The result has been great. We are on our way to being business owners and it is because we had a great coach like Loren. We highly recommend Loren for his skills in working with people, his high level of knowledge, and his ability to coach others.
