Faizun Kamal is an award-winning franchise coach, nationally-renowned public speaker, and best-selling author. As CEO of The Franchise Pros, she leads a full-service franchise consulting and development firm. Faizun coaches people nationwide on making the transition from employee to entrepreneur. Her best selling book, “The Right Franchise for You: Escape the 9 to 5, Generate Wealth, & Live Life on Your Terms,” is the guide that thousands of aspiring business owners have used to find their “perfect fit” franchise. Forbes nominated this book for inclusion into their Executive Library for executives. Faizun also works with entrepreneurs to help turn their existing businesses into national franchised brands.
Her unique style of inspirational coaching coupled with swift doses of tough love encourages candidates to embrace chaos, fear, insecurity and uncertainty as doorways of opportunity. She guides clients to proactively move beyond career burnout to build a sustainable career that they love! Faizun’s drive to create significant life changes through entrepreneurship stems from her own personal experience as a corporate refugee. As an executive in the high-stakes, high-stress world of corporate America, she found herself living an increasingly unbalanced life with little time for family. In 2015, after almost a decade in corporate America, she got her break by getting laid off. Using her lay-off as a jump-off, Faizun began a deeply introspective journey to intentionally redesign her career, and her life.
As a former Fortune 15 Executive with 20+ years of experience in entrepreneurial, corporate, multinational & nonprofit settings on three continents, Faizun tackles the topics of taking responsible risks to create career pivots, the art of finding the “perfect fit” business, and strategically making the leap from executive to entrepreneur. Her down-to-earth, self-deprecating humorous style of story-telling has made her an inspirational speaker to audiences worldwide. Her unusual career trajectory has been described by one corporate leader as “strategically coloring outside the (career) lines to leverage opportunities and maximize impact.” Faizun’s relatability and authenticity has led her to grow an engaged following of thousands on social media.
Faizun received her BA in Women’s Studies and Environmental Studies from Mount Holyoke College. She holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy and a Master’s in Business Administration from the Johns Hopkins University. She is also a graduate of Stanford University’s acclaimed Social Entrepreneurship Program. The recipient of many honors, Faizun was nominated to Global Franchise Magazines’ Top 100 Influential Women in Franchising and designated by designer Tory Burch as “a woman to watch.” Faizun has been featured extensively by the Tory Burch Foundation, Forbes, Franchise Journal, and Huffington Post, among others. She is a frequent guest on nationally syndicated radio shows and podcasts speaking on the topic of entrepreneurship.
