Sade and Ibraheem’s Franchising Journey

Have you ever thought about leaving your job to start your own business but felt unsure about where to begin?

Meet Sade and Ibraheem, a dynamic couple who made the leap from secure banking careers to the exciting world of franchise ownership. Their story is one of determination, strategic planning, and the pursuit of a dream to build a lasting legacy.

Like many of us, Sade and Ibraheem were working stable 9-to-5 jobs. Ibraheem, with over 25 years of banking experience, was an Associate Vice President in a Credit Union, specializing in Commercial Real Estate. Sade, on the other hand, recently left her job to dive into their new business venture, bringing her 20 years of experience in Retail Banking, Customer Service Relationship, and Health Care Aide work to the table.

Why a Franchise?

For Sade and Ibraheem, the decision to invest in a franchise was driven by their goal of achieving financial independence and creating a lasting legacy. “The only way for financial liberation or building our own legacy is to own our business, and owning a franchise is an idea that we have played with over the years,” they shared.

The final push came when a friend, who had successfully started his own franchise business, introduced them to Andrea and Bailey Brown The Franchise Agency. “We have always wanted to get into a franchise but having no guidance on how to go about it stalled our decision,” they explained. Meeting Andrea provided the direction they needed, and they knew it was time to take the leap.

Seeking Expert Guidance

Why did they decide to work with a franchise consultant? Sade and Ibraheem knew they needed more than just information; they needed a mentor.

“No book, Google search, or YouTube video can take the place of human interactions or experiences.”

“We needed to eliminate the wait period, the bureaucracy of franchisors, and incomplete information that we experienced in the past, and get help from Andrea.”

Working with Andrea and Bailey Brown The Franchise Agency was a game-changer for Sade and Ibraheem. “The best thing that has happened to us in the past couple of months is meeting Andrea,” they said. Andrea simplified the entire process, from understanding their personal interests to providing options they never knew existed. Her team’s constant follow-up and guidance were unmatched. “The constant flow of communication was very helpful,” they added.

Choosing the Right Franchise

The couple chose Always Best Care, a senior care franchise, because it aligned with their personal interests and values. “We have always been big on giving back to whichever community we live in,” they explained. The support from the franchisor and the testimonials from existing franchisees played a significant role in their decision. “Knowing that they would support us in every step of the business was crucial.”

Always Best Care provides a comprehensive range of services for seniors, including non-medical in-home care, assisted living placement services, and skilled home health care. The franchise is known for its dedication to high standards of care and extensive support for its franchisees, making it a strong choice for those looking to make a meaningful impact in their communities while building a successful business.

Owning a franchise has been liberating for the Ogunrinolas. “This is now us, transferring all the years of loyalty, dedication, and hard work running other people’s businesses to something WE own,” they shared. Sade has left her 9 to 5 job to focus on the business, while Ibraheem continues to work but remains very supportive.

Advice for Aspiring Franchise Owners

Sade and Ibraheem encourage anyone considering a franchise to take the plunge. “Give it a go and do it now. Ask all the questions, know what interests you, and speak with those who have done it before for guidance,” they advised.

Nothing beats having someone who has gone through the process teaching you what to do and how to do it.

Sade and Ibraheem’s journey is a testament to the power of determination, strategic planning, and the right guidance. They are now on their way to building a legacy, one that not only secures their financial future but also allows them to give back to their community.
