Inspiring Leadership: A Veteran Supports His Fellow Entrepreneurs

We are excited to announce the newest owner of FocalPoint Business Coaching: Eric McConaty. An Army veteran living in the Virginia area, Eric is looking forward to a career that will allow him more flexibility and time with his family. 

Who Is Eric McConaty?

With over fifteen years of military experience, Eric is currently a government employee for the Department of the Army. He loves many aspects of his job, including planning and executing projects and managing a strong, motivated team. However, his job does not leave much time to spend with his wife and two young children – and Eric was determined to find a career path that would allow him the freedom and flexibility he has been craving. 

Why Did Eric Make a Career Change?

While investigating different pathways into business ownership, Eric discovered the Franchising 101 Podcast, which is hosted by FranCoach Founder and CEO Tim Parmeter. After enjoying a few episodes of the show, Eric decided to reach out – and that was the beginning of his journey into self-employment. 

Tim and Eric worked together throughout FranCoach’s Discovery Process, during which Eric had the chance to hone in on his ideal business model and evaluate multiple franchise opportunities to find the one that best aligned with his values, goals, and skill set. Ultimately, he landed on FocalPoint Business Coaching, a remote business coaching opportunity that will allow him to apply his leadership skills and dedication to helping others as he supports fellow entrepreneurs trying to get their businesses off the ground. 

Why Will Eric Make a Great Franchise Owner?

Tim Parmeter of FranCoach commented that Eric was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Here’s what Tim has to say about why Eric is sure to succeed: 

“People with a military background tend to do incredibly well as franchise owners. Why? They know how to work hard, follow a proven plan, have histories of incredible leadership, and can figure stuff out if it gets rocky. I see all of those qualities in Eric and then some – and I expect big, big things in his future. I cannot wait to see him grow a coaching business with FocalPoint.”

Why Did Eric Choose FocalPoint?

FocalPoint Business Coaching harnesses the very best of founder Brian Tracy’s entrepreneurial and professional development learnings and strategies. FocalPoint coaches work with business owners, leaders, and their teams to effectively leverage these business-building tools, systems, and methodologies for maximum benefit. 

Throughout the Discovery and Validation processes, Eric worked with FocalPoint’s chief development officer, Scott Hartsfield. Scott helped Eric learn more about the brand’s unique offerings and opportunities – and ultimately, Eric loved that it was a one-man business that would allow him lots of flexibility and control. He is also excited to build a legacy that he can one day leave to his children. Eric is dedicated to helping others, and FocalPoint will give him the chance to do just that. 

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Eric McConaty and wishing him luck as a new owner of FocalPoint.
