January 8, 2007 - DENVER, Colorado – America’s Best Franchises (www.americasbestfranchises.com), the premier Internet-based franchise portal, announced today a partnership with Guidant Financial Systems to educate entrepreneurs in the purchase of franchises through self-directed retirement accounts. The goal of the partnership is to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit by empowering individuals to take control of their future through business ownership.
By visiting the America’s Best Franchises web portal, and clicking on “Buy A Franchise Using Retirement Funds,” entrepreneurs will learn the value of financing a franchise through an IRA or 401K retirement account. Guidant Financial Group has created a program called Audeo™, a self-directed retirement structure that permits an individual to actively invest in a franchise without debt and avoid taking a taxable distribution or incurring penalties.
“Many entrepreneurs who want to open a franchise face the dilemma of where their start-up funds will come from. In most cases, it’s the biggest challenge to overcome,” said Bill Bradley, CEO and founder of America’s Best Franchises. “Our portal provides actionable information on financing options so the entrepreneur can transform their business’ success into a powerful tool for tax deferred retirement growth. America’s Best Franchises provides a wide range of information for the transformation of the would-be entrepreneur from an employee to a business owner. In addition to offering a diversified directory of the best franchises in the nation, the site includes value-added features including start-up tips, business planning, networking tools, inspirational case studies and franchise resources. It’s truly a full service, full support portal.”
