College Pro’s Entrepreneurship Development Program was built on four pillars of coaching: Growth, Connection, Belief, and Effort.
As a College Pro franchisee, you are part of a much wider family of entrepreneurs and alumni. You can access our collective expertise, and rely on us to provide effective coaching and mentorship. We want you to learn skills and develop the self-confidence to use them. Our program is designed to help you bring out the best in yourself, not only as an entrepreneur, but as a person.
The College Pro program has been developed and tested over more than 40 years of growth and evolution. Think of it as a one-year cycle:
New entrepreneurs come on board and begin training. Formal training is typically held over the course of a few weekends. The training sessions teach you scheduling, budgeting, estimating, crew management, and other key skills you will need to start and grow your business.
Spring is when you take your classroom knowledge into the field for practical training with your General Manager. This time will also be used to begin marketing your business, estimating jobs, and setting up work contracts for the summer season.
With your crew hired and your initial work contracts in place, summer is the time to get down to business. It can be daunting, but remember: You’ll be well prepared and you’re not alone – your General Manager will be there to support you!
Successful entrepreneurship comes down to details. It’s the things you do day in and day out – your preparation, routine, and follow-through – that determine how successful you’ll be. So what’s a day in the life of a College Pro franchisee? Watch the following video to find out!
