Editorial Reviews

From the Author

WHO hasn’t had the inkling―or even the outright conviction―that we could be more successful,
more fulfilled, and more satisfied if we could invest in ourselves?
HOW MANY of us have given our time, our knowledge, our energy, and our loyalty to corporate
careers, only to discover that our contributions don’t guarantee gratitude, upward mobility, or
even job security?
WHY consider franchising? Franchise investors reap all the rewards of entrepreneurship―self-determination,
personal and professional freedom, unlimited potential for profitability―
without all the risks of going it alone.
WHAT’S the difference? In franchising, someone has already dreamed the big dream, figured
out how to make it work, marketed it well, and sold it to create a well-defined niche. And now,
that person is looking for an investor and partner to help build on that success.
• Leverage your expertise and resources to build a bridge out of the corporate world and
into entrepreneurship
• Learn how to choose a franchise concept that’s the right franchise for you
• Understand how to capitalize your investment and minimize your risks
• Recognize and avoid common mistakes and traps
• Know that franchising is all about working for yourself, but not by yourself

Foreword by Darren Hardy, Publisher & Founding Editor of Success Magazine

“HIRE YOURSELF is a must read if you want to achieve the American Dream of
business ownership. Full of great advice and valuable insights on every page―it’s a
blueprint for fi nding the perfect business to help you achieve your goals and desires!”
– JEFF ELGIN, Founder and CEO, FranChoice

“HIRE YOURSELF captures the knowledge and insight you need to transition
from a life of corporate service to one where your destiny is your own. Anyone who’s
ever dreamed of getting out of the rat race and becoming their own boss through
franchising NEEDS to read this book.”
– NICK FRIEDMAN, Co-Founder and President,
College Hunks Hauling Junk & Moving --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Pete Gilfillan is a passionate business leader who is driven to help people achieve their dreams of career independence through franchise ownership. With more than twenty years’ experience as a corporate executive across multiple industries and a history of small business ownership, Pete brings a wide breadth of experience to his work as a franchise consultant. His unique knowledge of franchising, energetic outlook, and determination to find the right franchise for each candidate’s lifestyle and goals set Pete apart in his field. In some ways, Pete’s been in franchising all his life. He was raised in an entrepreneurial family where both his father and grandfather owned successful franchise enterprises. As a young man, Pete spent seventeen years working at Ford Motor Company, rapidly advancing through a variety of regional and national positions to reach the role of general manager―where he guided up to six hundred franchise dealerships generating $5 billion in revenue. In his executive capacity, Pete was able to gain an in-depth knowledge of the mechanics, strengths, and benefits of franchising from the corporate side of the table. Pete became a franchise owner himself in 2010 when he purchased a multi-state master license to a junk removal franchise. His investment gave him the opportunity to better understand the benefi ts and challenges of being a franchisee and the importance of choosing the right franchise for one’s strengths, talents, and business objectives. Since 2011, Pete has been working as an independent franchise consultant with FranChoice to help potential franchisees gather information, evaluate opportunities, and make smart selections in franchise ownership. In his role of helping each candidate fi nd his or her optimum investment and lifestyle choice, Pete has found his most fulfi lling and rewarding professional calling. Pete is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire and resides in Naperville, IL, with his wife and children. In his private life, he enjoys watching his kids’ activities, spending time outdoors, exercising, and avidly pursuing self-improvement through books, audio programs, and seminars.
