an American Veteran and New Member of the WSI Franchise
, Discusses His
Training at WSI Headquarters.
American Veteran Marcus Henry travelled to WSI headquarters in Toronto Ontario during the week of November 8-14, to participate with his
fellow franchisees in a one week training course, to acquaint himself with the #1 franchise.
Finding the training a fantastic week, Henry
is now further prepared to step out into the business world and start on his
own. â€œI have a lot of tools to take back with me and guide me along the way, as I step into this world of digital marketing,â€� spoke Henry
while sitting down for a gourmet lunch provided by WSI. â€œI just canâ€™t wait to get out there now and start knocking on doors.â€�
came on board through the Investing in America campaign, which WSI
offered as an opportunity to help reboot the American economy by offering the franchise at half the cost to all American veterans in the summer of 2010. â€œ This franchise is an affordable investment towards your future, but then to take that and have it discounted just for being an American Veteran seems as I have said in the past, a no brainer,â€� said Marcus
also plans to take full advantage of the mentoring program offered through WSI
, which will put him with an established WSI franchisee to help him to set himself up quickly in his
first few months. â€œMy one year goal is to hit the $100,000 mark,â€� Henry
During the hands on training at the head office, franchisees were taught how to send out proper business emails.
took initative and used the exercise to his
advantage. â€œI decided to plug in real names and my real information, with my signature, and I am already getting replies back from potential clients,â€� said Henry
Vice President of Marketing Elizabeth Monaghan, was very impressed with Henry upon hearing about his initative. â€œMarcus is already showing what it takes to be successful with this franchise simply by taking the Â first steps like this on his own, and it has paid off and at the same time proven that WSI has the tools to impress people.
I fully believe Marcus
will stand out in the near future as a WSI franchisee.â€�
also spoke about his
training while in the Marines and spoke highly of the experience, â€œthe Marines motto is that your NCO is always mentoring you.
If someone is just one rank above you, they are mentoring you.â€� And when Henry
came for his
training the Toronto head office he
spoke highly of the instructors here, â€œtraining has been great, the trainers have been able to answer all of the questions put forth by the class and they act in a very professional manner.
I think the trainers here have just been fantastic.â€�
Now heading home to start his WSI
business, Henry looks back on his
training with WSI and had some final advice for his
fellow veterans who may be searching for something like a franchise, â€œdonâ€™t be afraid to step out there, donâ€™t be afraid to do what you already know how to do.
As a veteran, you just have to grab a hold of that courage that you already have and tackle it,â€� said Henry
