Redefining The Core Strategy to Buy a Franchise

Sustaining one’s track record as a legacy pharma provider isn’t easy.

Between assisting major healthcare organizations and maintaining constantly evolving management systems, the going gets rough—and only the tough tend to succeed, long-term.

Not Everyone Can
Buy a Franchise
Business—Or Can They?

As the medical world continues to evolve, applying foundational knowledge into emergent problems, sometimes, isn’t enough. It’s a harsh environment–justifiably so. To merely be compliant in modern practices is brazen, considering the growing mountain of responsibilities facing today’s pharmaceutical strategists.

To leap the barrier bar, ever-light-footed, and raise it in one’s wake, then, is a task reserved for only the most multifaceted industry specialists. As they say: When the going gets rough—only the toughest, hitherto ‘tough enough’—get going.

What they don’t say, however, is this:

One’s personal path needn’t be—shouldn’t be—permanently aligned with their organization. For some, learning to buy a franchise business is the pursuit of freedom.

Divya Tewari’s story isn’t unheard of: 18 years of pharmaceutical science, strategy and finance expertise generates enough inertia to propel a person far, really far, career-wise. Rare, however, is the pharma worker who maintains the same flame of independency which once fueled a fledgling career. While many pharma flames don’t extinguish, not entirely, most are destined to blend with others—flittering as one within the context of corporate cohesion. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, of course, as a pharmacist sum is generally greater than its parts. This said, the healthcare industry isn’t without its corporate pains—growth-related or otherwise. For Divya, the later was the case. Or the cage, in this scenario.

The demands of corporate America will wear anyone thin: Hard work, travel and constant time sacrifices whittle the keen-witted down into world-weary workers. Time and time again, the love of one’s job is all but hollowed out—traded via handshake for a payroll barely long enough to make the ends meet. The rolling stone workweek might’ve been an anchor, at one time. But, these days, its weight was all too heavy.

Divya wanted a better life—a life sustained and proportionately grown from her own wit, creativity, resolve and planning. The corporate life really was a trap, however, leaving very little time to bridge the gap between confined complacency and risky self-sustainment.

Escaping the
Corporate Cage:
Divya Tewari’s

Implementing Choice:
Planning with
Careyann Golliver,
America’s Franchise

Before bridges are born, most swing rope to rope. At the end of her own, Divya wrestled with a wager: Should she continue alone? Or, should she ask for a lifeline?

Careyann Golliver answered, helping her slow the momentum enough to strategize—browsing all directions, as opposed to those directly in front of her. The two set off, beginning Divya’s professional transformation with a single question:

“What can I do?”

It’s a tough question to ask—particularly for those established upon a multitude of previous answers to this question. Where can a person go, once they’ve built everything in one direction, by piece, with all they’ve got?

Careyann helped Divya rephrase the question:

“What do you want to do?” she asked.

From here, the pathway unfolded. Divya wanted the freedom, first and foremost, to both build a legacy for her children and spend time with them in it. She needed to examine the problem from another angle, then: What makes the most sense, from a family perspective? If a person were to buy a franchise business, is their best option also their safest?

The implementation of choice was the missing ingredient—as is often the case for professionals sifting through resources. Outfitting our professional toolbelts with our own devices makes sense, doesn’t it? Charge forth with all we have, every last bit of it, with all we have. Why apply anything less than our best?

Choice, as a tool, is hazardously elusive—but it’s omnipotent when wielded. Careyann helped Divya broaden her perspective, examining a variety of alternate paths which could eventually be traveled with her familiar, time-tested-and-true, resources.

In this way, step by step, the two uncovered solutions. Careyann helped Divya build her career bridge to buy a franchise business, utilizing previous swing-ropes as framework binds: If Divya’s skillset applied to an avenue, even inapparently, the avenue stayed on the table.

Before long, Divya built her career bridge in its entirety with Careyann’s Franchise Matchmaking Proven Process. Self-discovery aplenty, she engaged a pure, business-to-business waste management company as her first franchise. Her focus: helping customers save much-needed money using their services.

The business was essential, promising sustenance regardless of economic hurdles, precarious professional transitions, scaling challenges and legacy-making considerations. With a limited staff and no physical location, recurring revenue was nearly guaranteed. Divya achieved what she’d set out to do, years ago: Invest in a fulfilling career which promoted health, sustained wellness and pursued sustainable futures for others. With Careyann’s help, she became an invariably powerful benefit to both the environment and society.

Divya was approved for three franchise territories—which she will guarantee her future expansion with each of them.

To Buy a
Franchise Business,
Step by Step


“Some people might already come from franchising, I didn’t, and there are a lot of people like me who want to do something but they have no idea how to go about doing that. And because of that fear of; “how do I even start”, I feel it stops a lot of people from getting into these opportunities.

Working with Careyann was one that laid out the process, step
by step, it was strict but it was fun. It absolutely worked for me that Careyann was very clear with instructions on what you’re going to do next and what you should do. I didn’t feel pushed or pressured to make any decisions. She basically allowed me to take the information provided into my own hands to figure things out, completely unbiased as to what I chose to do. And this I felt was a real value-add.

She is very well connected. I found out that there’s a whole parallel industry that works, and of course, I would not have never found out about it if I was going to do the discovery myself. I felt a real benefit was Careyann is well connected with a whole network of other suppliers so to speak, including the financial institutions and the legal folks that was also extremely helpful to be connected to people like that.

Careyann has mastered the process with her very clearly defined working model where she laid out making my search very successful. The continuous collaboration, the follow up and the guidance, was highly valuable. “
