I’m proud of my clients’ success.

Read the stories of some of the incredible people who once stood where you’re standing now—and have found their path to fulfillment in their careers.

  • “If you are considering your next career step and if you are considering options for starting your own business, I highly recommend JoAnne Maamry. I had toyed with the idea of starting my own business for a number of years, but felt it was out of my reach for a number of reasons. JoAnne walked me through a process that allowed me to truly explore and learn from my prior experiences, allowing me to truly understand the benefits of the franchise model, connecting my strengths with a small number of opportunities to vet. She kept me focused, pushed me when needed, built my confidence when needed. Her guidance on everything from financing to day to day operations to understanding how my strengths connected with the opportunities presented was done with the best combination of professionalism and empathy. I cannot say enough good things about JoAnne! Feel free to message me if you have any questions!”

    Jerry Courtney, Greater Lexington Area
  • “I was fortunate to meet JoAnne early on in my search. I attended a job fair during a “Soldiers for Life” event where she was exhibiting, and we engaged in conversation. We set up a meeting where I spent a long time talking while she listened and asked questions. I believe my Esource Coach knows more about me than anyone else in my life.  JoAnne learned that I had been pretty banged up during my many years in Special Forces. I was concerned that I might not have the energy level required to run a business, and she helped me work through those fears. She also knew that I didn’t want a business that depended solely on my efforts. I wanted a team, and I wanted a service that was needed in my community. Having someone in your corner while you venture into the new world of business ownership is vital. When I was concerned and encountered challenges, JoAnne made it OK. She also guided me through the next steps. It is such a comfort to have someone who cares. I never felt alone. Now I’m in business for myself, but not by myself thanks to the support of my franchisor and my Esource Coach.”


    FRANKO ANTOLOVICH, Owner, House Doctors of Hardin County, KY
  • “You have been phenomenal throughout the process and I’m glad you stuck with me even though I was not that interested in franchises initially.  You answered all my (sometimes over the top) questions with 100% integrity.  The professionalism throughout the process was beyond my expectations, and my impression of the franchise model has been changed forever.”


    CHRIS BROWN, North Charlotte Metro
  • “I highly recommend JoAnne. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and caring nature for her clients was such a breath of fresh air.”


    THOMAS LAUT, Owner of Budget Blinds of Pickerington, OH
  • “I highly recommend JoAnne to anyone considering the path to self employment. I appreciate her knowledge, professionalism, and dedication to her clients.”


    RUSSELL SHUSTER, President at Real Property Management – North Point
  • “My wife and I are local, but have been working with JoAnne virtually, due to COVID-19. During this 3 month journey, filled with fun, but hard work, we could not be more happy and satisfied with JoAnne’s professionalism, knowledge, communication, patience and sincere passion for us to find a business that fits us. She truly wants to see us succeed as first time business owners. We’re actually impressed with how she has handled this process with us! We would recommend JoAnne to anyone who has the desire to pursue a career outside of Corporate America, or just to gain more information about self employment career options/opportunities – SHE CAN HELP YOU! With JoAnne’s assistance, we have found a business that is perfect for us! Being that we have been placed and will soon launch our business, we thought her services were done, but no. JoAnne keeps in touch with us weekly via a phone call LOADED with references, tips and recommendations for success! Thank you, JoAnne! We give you two thumbs-up!”


    STEPHEN and CANDACE BLAND, Owners – Fibrenew SE Louisville
  • “JoAnne has been a real blessing for me during a time of career transition. She has given me great clarity and direction on my future career. Through the process, it was clear that I needed to be in a business of my own. With JoAnne’s help, that will soon be a reality. I’d strongly recommend JoAnne’s services to anyone in a career transition or considering business ownership.”


    DON HARRIS, Owner Operator at Cottman Transmission & Total Auto Care
  • “As a former award winning entrepreneur, I have long recognized that in life there are two ways to learn… one is through your mistakes the other lower cost option is to learn from others. That is especially the case in searching for the “Right” business. As such I have consistently found that the KEY TO SUCCESS is by partnering with TRAINED EXPERTS. JoAnne brings years of background experience and works with one of the world’s MOST respected firms that help people find the “RIGHT” business. In a community with over 4000+ franchise options and many thousands of business opportunities, JoAnne can help you separate the “BEST” from the rest! There is no longer any security in the J-O-B. Owning one’s own business – IF you pick the RIGHT business will change you life for the better and provide you better LONG-TERM security no longer available by working for someone else! JoAnne can help you achieve that goal if you are willing to closely follow her suggestions.”


    LARRY CARNELL, Award Winning Entrepreneur, Franchise & Funding SME, Lecturer & Author

    “I was looking to create another business when I met JoAnne Maamry in 2010 at a Franchise Expo. I went out of curiosity. Wow! So much information. So many genuine opportunities. Ms. Maamry introduced herself to me offering her service to help navigate this labyrinth. What she did was help me discover my strengths and weaknesses as an owner/ceo. She filtered out the noise of the marketplace and matched me with businesses that most closely matched me. “Me” being the central component of the match. This service will benefit the foundation of your business in numerous ways. JoAnne is a joy of a person and has become a valued consultant and friend.”


    ALLEN CHANDLER, Realtor/Broker
  • “Working with Joanne gave me a chance to take inventory not only of my skill set but also of my personal interests. This allowed me to not only focus on a new career move but a move towards my passion.”



    VERN GOODMAN, Motivator/Trainer/CEO at GnH Enterprise
  • “I began working with JoAnne in August of 2012. She is a Business Transition Coach who assists individuals who are looking to transition from the job market to opening their own business. We immediately hit it off. I felt JoAnne really took the time to get to know me as a person and truly wanted what was best for me and my family. In going through the process of reviewing various different companies, JoAnne introduced me to businesses that would fit my lifestyle and interests. She was with me every step of the way. We would set up calls weekly to review our progress and she was wonderful with the advice and encouragement provided. I could not have gone through this process if it wasn’t for her (I know I would have chicken’d out!). She reminded me each week of what my ultimate goals were and to believe in myself. I would highly recommend anyone who is having thoughts of making a change in their life to work with JoAnne. She is truly an exceptional human being and a pleasure to work with. I strongly believe I have not only gained a business partner; but a friend as well. I know she will always be there for me anytime I need her and I for her as well.”


    SHERRI HELMOND, Business Owner
  • “I started with just me and one truck, working out of my garage. I now have four employees, and I am in a commercial space. The earnings potential is pretty well limitless at this point. I am busy. I do have to spend time away from my family just as I did before. But now, if I want to stay home and cook my kids breakfast, I can. On nice sunny days, if I want to cut out early to take the kids swimming, I do. I don’t just have weekends to choose from anymore.”

    BRANDEN BOWDEN, New Business Owner
  • “After working as an executive in the Detroit area, I found myself at a crossroads. At the age of 64, many people are looking to wind down; but I was starting a whole new adventure. I considered taking another shot at the day-to-day corporate grind. I tried to find another position, but my wife and I have always dreamed of owning our own business, so we began to examine the possibilities. That’s when I found The Entrepreneur’s Source®. I feel my coach has developed his communication skills which allow him to listen with true empathy and I completely trusted The Entrepreneur’s Source process. Now I feel I have personal value in my work. I am loving being a business owner and can see the impact it can have on others. The Entrepreneur’s Source has a great process to help you explore self-sufficiency.”

    RICK WEAVER, New Business Owner
  • “I was traveling across the country working in corporate sales and one day I realized that I didn’t want to travel anymore! That’s when I began to think about owning my own business. I began working with my Career Ownership Coach who helped me begin my Journey of Discovery. For me, it was a great process. I was learning about what excited and motivated me, but also what didn’t! That was just as important. I am so happy I went on the “journey,” and was also happy to have my coach along with me. He was a very good listener. He was genuinely interested in my long-term success. and he challenged me to see some things I didn’t even see in myself.”

    LEE PUTNAM, New Business Owner
  • “I had worked for 15 years in the world of corporate finance when I was forced to make a sudden exit. I had always thought to myself, I have this great corporate job, I’m on easy street. But I was really in the wrong place at the wrong time. I had no control over my own destiny. My Career Ownership Coach helped me take a close look at Franchising to achieve self-sufficiency.  Franchising was a better choice for me rather than starting a business from the ground up. I have a good sense of how things should run and customer service but I tend not to be strong on the sales side and frankly, I am not the stereotypical idea-man. A franchise is giving you the playbook, and you have a product. In my mind a lot of the basics have been built, you just need to follow the proven system. When friends are approaching those exit ramps in life, the first thing I tell them to do is to connect with a Career Ownership Coach at The Entrepreneur’s source.”

    ANDREW BROWN, New Business Owner
  • “The first time I met with my coach, I didn’t think I would walk out with a popcorn stand…Throughout my career, I never once dreamed I’d be in the place I’m in now. I thank E-Source for helping guide me.”

    BILL BENTZ, New Business Owner
  • “Being an entrepreneur was always an idea in my head, but to be honest, I thought when I got to the point in my life that I had a family, that that ship had sailed. My wife and I met with our Career Ownership Coach and found The Entrepreneur’s Source® to be a valuable tool throughout our discovery process. Now, as a business owner I have not only raised nearly $1 million dollars for schools in my community, but I work hard, and I get the flexibility to do what I want to do when I want to do it.”

    MICHAEL SCROOPE, New Business Owner
