Ken Picard from The Entrepreneur’s Source helped me reach my long term dream of owning my own business. Ken was highly recommended to me from my MBA classmate. At first, I was hesitant and skeptical of working with a business coach. However, after listening to the information Ken provided, I was convinced this man would do everything in his power to find the ultimate business to meet my long term goals. Ken’s patience, follow through, and encouragement kept me focused. His weekly conference calls were resourceful and inspiring. Ken shared several business and inspirational books that helped me decide what direction I should take. Ken Picard was instrumental in my pursuit of buying into a proven business model. I believe Ken to be a true professional in what he does. I would highly recommend Ken Picard to anyone who also dreams of someday owning their own business.

I have been working with Ken for over a year and it has been the smartest decision I could had made on my quest to buy a franchise. When I began I had no real understanding of how this process would work and assumed incorrectly that it would be pretty strait forward.
Ken guided me through what in the end was a option filled and decision challenging process, keeping me focused and providing a level of understanding and expertise that made this journey easier and far more fulfilling than it would had been otherwise.
Ken's approach is not just about closing the deal. Ken took the time to discover all of my all of my life goals and helped me keep a focused on them as I picked through the large number of franchise options. Ken opened my mind to choices I would had never considered on my own, impartially helping me evaluate each opportunity.
Ken proactively stayed in touch throughout the process making sure I actively worked toward my goals providing insight and assistance always at the right time. Ken's upbeat and energetic personality made it easy for us to communicate. Ken provided warning of upcoming challenges and practical suggestions on how to address them.
I can honestly say that without Ken I would not had acquired my franchise. I highly recommend Ken to anyone seeking to better their lives and the lives of their loved ones by a franchise.
I would like to offer my sincere appreciation to Ken Picard for the outstanding work that he did to locate a perfect-fit business for my wife and myself. We had been searching for a business on our own for over 2 years with little success, and were contacted by Ken to see if he could assist us in finding a good match. There were no high pressure sales involved, no obligations of any kind, just a sincere effort to truly find us a business that would not only bring us a good living, but that we would enjoy doing as well. Ken spent a lot of time introducing us to several hand picked opportunities which we explored before choosing the business that we ultimately joined. Ken was helpful throughout our process, he was also always available if we had any questions or concerns, never pressuring or directing, but listening and understanding our needs and aspirations. We are definitely happy customers, and I have, and will continue to recommend Ken to anyone I know that is searching for a business opportunity that will work for them.
Working with Ken was an invaluable resource. He was very patient, kind, supportive and really aided in the navigation of the exploration process. He helped me discover and answer questions I didn't know that I didn't know. I would recommend Ken to anyone seeking entrepreneurial business ownership or ownership at any stage.
My experience with the coaches at the Entrepreneur Source has been nothing less than outstanding. They presented valuable information at the Boots to Business Reboot in Boston. Ken took me down the road of self exploration where I found the right type of opportunity for me and my family. I recommend Ken to anyone who wants to get into business but is not sure if it is right for them.

Ken began working with me as a business consultant. At the time I had been working with a few other consultants offering the same services. I quickly found Ken to be one of those rare business connections that you are blessed to discover. In a relatively short time he has gone from consultant, to coach, to trusted advisor. Ken is a contact I am thrilled to have and will do business with indefinitely.

I was a skeptic when Ken first reached out to me, but he was a superb resource for educating me about the value of business ownership as a second stage career. He also used his extensive entrepreneurial network to put me directly in touch with experts offering opportunities that matched my skills and capabilities. In addition, he provided invaluable counsel on how to marshal the financial wherewithal to in fact turn opportunities into reality. I really appreciate his low-pressure approach to franchise opportunities; it’s very different from most coaches and consultants. I highly recommend Ken to anyone investigating entrepreneurial business ownership. He’s that good.
