“The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that changes really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail MOSQUITO is not taking risks.” – Mark Zuckerberg.

I have taken plenty of risks in my life. Leaving my corporate job of 21 years that could have continued to provide me with security in a paycheck every other week. Starting a business from the ground up with my sister – not a franchise – and pouring my heart and soul into it. Then starting a franchise consulting business that I love! And now, my next new adventure as the owner of Mosquito Shield Palm Beach County!

Most that work in the franchise world will tell you; you quickly learn which franchise concepts rise heads and shoulders above others, and Mosquito Shield is one of them! And as a franchise broker, I present lots of different concepts to my clients, and each time I’ve presented Mosquito Shield, I have fallen deeper in love with the concept.

Those that know me well will be shocked to learn that I’ve invested in a Mosquito business when my passion has continuously resided in the health/wellness/fitness/beauty segments.  

So why did I take the risk to start yet another business? And why Mosquito Shield? I’ve learned, as I’ve become older – I like to say “wiser” – that diversification is essential and vital to me. And Mosquito Shield checked all of the boxes that I was looking for in a business, such as:

  • Semi-Passive or Passive Business Model – Can be manager run.
  • Multiple Revenue Streams – B2C, B2C, & Special Events
  • Recurring Revenue – Customers sign annual contracts & high retention rates
  • Home-based Business Model – No brick & mortar needed.
  • Simple Business Model
  • Few Employees Needed
  • Essential business – recession-resistant 
  • National Sales Center takes incoming calls.
  • Differentiated Service – Proprietary formulas & technology
  • Proven. Effective. Affordable!

After building a business from the ground up, a boutique fitness studio, I am already overwhelmed (in a good way) with the level of support and guidance that I am getting from the Mosquito Shield corporate team to get my local territory up and running. I will now know, first hand, the value of investing in a franchise and hope that this experience will make me an even better franchise broker.

If you are interested in learning more about this concept from someone that has been through the discovery process fully herself, I will welcome the discussion. This brand is on fire, with territories selling fast.  You can reach me here: stacie@fusionfranchising.com

I’m so thankful I pulled the trigger at the perfect time. And apologize to those that were also interested in the Palm Beach County territory – well, kind of. With that said, I will be happy to spray your homes, though & keep your residence mosquito-free this summer!

Be safe. Be Well. Be Your Own Boss.
