We are meeting with Dominic Rubino.

He bought his first student painting franchise at University - by accident! His second franchise was in Professional Services, which completely altered his life's course. He built another business from zero to over 120 million in sales using what he learned in that franchise.

Dom is an actual business owner who uses real examples. He's been a Pro-Franchising Business Coach with O2E Brands, Golden Spoon, Senior Care, Professional Services, and Sports Clips. He's also been a "Zee" for Triple-A Student Painters, ActionCOACH, and the Global Master Franchisor at FocalPoint Business Coaching.

In addition, Dom will address important entrepreneurial topics like time management, growth and exit strategies, marketing, and sales.
