Use Your IRA/401K
to Fund Your Business
If you have retirement funds that you have not yet paid taxes on, you can access those funds to capitalize a business. You can then use those funds to buy a business, for any business expense, and to pay salary!


You are in control, you decide how much of your retirement funds you wish to use for the business. When working with a company that specializes in this funding option, and follows all of the IRS guidelines, you are able to buy a business Debt Free and Equity Rich (from the rollover of your IRA/401K funds). Additionally, you'll have a new 401K/Profit Sharing Plan that you can begin to contribute Tax Deferred.
To learn more about this option, call Diane Rosenkrantz with

The Fear Factor of Buying a Franchise




Buying a franchise is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make, so feeling fear is not only normal, it is entirely appropriate to the situation.
Who has fear? Everyone! Fear prevents us (most of us, anyway) from jumping out of a moving car or going over a waterfall in a barrel. Fear helps us make choices that are less likely to endanger our lives. Fear also prevents us from gambling our life's savings on a horse race or marrying someone we've known only a few days.
However, when we feel we have enough information about a subject, we can often get over fear and do things that were beyond our comfort zone.
If you are one of those people who has done your homework and found the franchise opportunity you've always dreamed of but can't seem to commit to a decision, then the final doubts you have are probably about your own abilities rather than the franchise itself.
This is where a qualified franchise consultant can help you. By assessing your interests, skills and experience, a consultant can guide you to a decision where risks are at an acceptable level and the benefits, while not certain, are well worth the effort.
The only problem with fear is when you allow it to stop you from doing something you know will make a positive difference in your life. Don't let fear stop you from reaching your goals!

Boneheads boneheads
Cash Needed: $150K
Total Investment: $350K-$500K
To understand the story of Boneheads you need to know about the people behind it. They were not businessmen, just chefs from South Africa and Atlanta. The chef from Atlanta was working on a new concept that offered people excellent quality grilled seafood dishes in a casual, but fast setting. The chef from South Africa wanted to introduce the U.S. to his beloved Piri Piri pepper sauce.
boneheads On a beautiful spring day in 2006, purely by accident, the two chefs ran into each other; well actually, they backed their cars into each other. After getting out of his car and profusely apologizing to the South African, the chef from Atlanta declared "I can't believe that happened, I am such a Bonehead!". Jumping out to view the damage, the other chef agreed that he, too, was a Bonehead. The two chefs struck up a conversation, had a good laugh, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Today, the wonderful, mouth watering taste of the Piri Piri pepper, fresh caught seafood and out-of-the-oven chicken "collide" in their kitchens across the country. The sweetness of the pepper marries well with the grilled flavor of the meats. Their passion for only using fresh, local ingredients and producing great, healthy food that you can truly feel good about eating is no accident.
Boneheads' complete turnkey Restaurant Development Support System is designed to assist you every step of the way as you build your Boneheads business. You will earn a degree from the Boneheads Training School when you complete both the classroom and on-site training program. At the school, you will learn everything from register operation to grilling the perfect Piri Piri Chicken, from staff hiring to accounting procedures.
When you complete your training, their highly experienced Real Estate Team will assist you in identifying and securing prime real estate sites to ensure that you select a location with the best chance for success. Once potential sites are identified, Boneheads will assist in negotiating leases for a variety of issues including price per square foot, build-out time and allowances, renewal terms, etc..
Boneheads supports you with a consolidated equipment package that covers every piece of equipment in your restaurant, from a three-ounce ladle to the ice machine. Due to volume purchasing discounts, you are able to buy restaurant equipment at a great price reduction. They have carefully refined this package to fit the exact needs of your restaurant.
Boneheads also offers a complete Project Management Service to ensure that your restaurant opens as soon as possible. Once you have  learned how to develop your sales and marketing plan, setup your back office, and hone your restaurant management skills, you will be ready to open your restaurant!

What is a Master Franchise?

Some franchises have opportunities known as Master or Regional Developers. This involves the development of a geographic region that can be as small as a portion of a state or as large as an entire state. You purchase the right to develop a designated area and share in the franchise fees and royalties with the franchisor. You work closely with commercial real estate agents, business brokers and consultants in the development of your area. The investment needed to secure a Master or Regional Developer opportunity can start as low as $150K depending on the franchise and geographic area.
