Lynn Mitschke, Director 
Market America's UnFranchise® System offers us that opportunity to break out of working for someone else and concentrate our efforts into developing a positive financial solution for ourselves as business owners. Five and a half years ago when I began my business with Market America, I was virtually chained to my job as a nursing director that consumed 60 hours per week of my time with my effort and energy directed at the success of the organization. Less than two years after starting my part-time business, I had matched my income that I spent many years and much education developing. I made the choice to retire from that career and now feel financially secure without the time constraints that a traditional job imposed upon me. This system is unique and powerful; it must be experienced to be completely understood. This is a life changing business and an incredible opportunity for all.


Throughout the weekend you will also learn from all these incredible speakers and trainers:
