About The Entrepreneur's Source

The Entrepreneur’s Source® (TES) is a pioneer in the coaching space and continues to dominate the $11 billion Business Coaching franchise market in North America. 

TES became the first virtual coaching franchise when Visionary & Founder Terry Powell established it in 1984 to fulfill a need in the market, and for close to 40 years, has helped tens of thousands of individuals achieve their dreams of self-sufficiency.

The Entrepreneur's Source® is a network of Career Ownership Coaches™ who are dedicated to helping others achieve business ownership by providing franchising education in a safe space to discover hundreds of leading business possibilities.  Career Ownership Coaches™ come from a variety of backgrounds and industries, but all of them have a strong desire to help others.

The demand for Career Ownership Coaching™ is rapidly increasing across North America. Today, 40% of the nation’s workforce is leaving the traditional job market and taking control of their own destiny through business ownership. Even in a strong job market, midto high-range paying jobs are not outpacing the cost of living and don’t provide long-term stability.

Entrepreneurs today have overwhelmingly chosen to pursue an alternative career path over traditional employment. As a result, 97% of self-sufficient entrepreneurs say they would never go back to traditional employment. Past experience is not a reflection of what can be achieved. We believe a person’s past skill set and experience level shouldn’t limit their access to the future they deserve.

Our model is about empowering our clients; helping them see past false beliefs; keeping their minds open; evaluating their Goals, Needs and Expectations, and identifying possibilities that will help them achieve their dreams. 

Here’s How We Deliver

We provide strategic, personalized coaching. For close to 40 years, our approach to alternative career coaching has focused almost exclusively on the franchise sector.

We offer a “safe space” for clients to explore business ownership as either a career option or an investment strategy.

Zero Risk. Our coaches earn referral fees from businesses so they can provide their clients with the valuable guidance they need to find financial freedom without charging a cent.

Win-Win. Franchising opportunities provide: a proven track record, a network of support, and a clearly defined business model they need to improve their lives and TES helps our clients discover ideal franchise possibilities that match their Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, and Equity goals.
