In this episode of the Millionaire Mindcast, we have an amazing guest, Jon Ostenson who talks about getting into business ownership, opportunities in different business models, failures and statistics of franchise, building your own empire, and building a generational wealth! Jon Ostenson is a Certified Franchise Consultant, owner/investor, author, international speaker specializing in the area of non-food franchising, Co-owner and franchisee of 6 fast growing franchises located in Atlanta, Minneapolis, and Miami, CEO of FranBridge Consulting and a top 1% consultant/broker nationally. He authored 'Non-Food Franchising' and is a frequent contributor and thought leader for publications on the topic of franchising and franchise investments. He has been featured in Forbes, Inc. Magazine, Bloomberg, The Franchise Journal, and Franchise Connect. Prior to FranBridge, Jon was the President of ShelfGenie, a national franchise system with 200 locations. He draws on his experience as both the president of an Inc. 500 franchise system and as a multi-brand franchise in serving his consulting clients that are looking to explore business ownership opportunities. He believes that there’s a better part in business ownership where a lot of people don’t know about it. Now, Jon is continually helping people in franchising by finding top opportunities, and looking forward to helping more!   Some Questions I Ask: How did you get into the space of entrepreneurship?
