About Emily Anderson:
Career turning points are her specialty. Most of Emily’s clients are at a point in their career where something is no longer working (down-sized, disengaged, need for increased income), and they don't know where to turn. Emily provides information, consultation and resources to empower them to get “unstuck”.
As a Director of Business Development for FranNet, Emily’s role is to educate and consult on your best-matched business ownership opportunities; guide you through a process of due diligence so you can make a safe and wise decision, whether or not your path leads to business ownership.
Emily currently lives with her family in Central Oregon, and enjoys the same freedom and flexibility that she helps others achieve through business ownership.
